On Sunday, St. James’ Park will host a special Premier League game when United will face another “United” squad. Not Manchester though, but we will welcome back some ex-Toon players in West Ham squad.
Let’s forget about last Monday defeat against Derby County, this week we will have a special game inside fortress St. James’ whe the Hammers make a visit. The game would be a special one because we will see some ex-Toon players return and mostly for Nobby Solano.
Nobby will be on his second club to play for against his beloved Toon club. He’s once have been played for Aston Villa and now he will wear the Hammers jersey to face his first England club since coming in from Peru.
Scott Parker and Lee Bowyer will also coming to Gallowgate End. The game would be more “All United” if Kieron Dyer and Craig Bellamy not being injured.
Craig Bellamy limped off on Saturday with a groin injury, but the word from East London is that the former United striker will be fit to play.
Speaking about his early return, Nobby who only left the club for three weeks now said that it would be a very sentimental evening but he will take it in a professional way.
“I have a fantastic relationship with the fans, a great relationship with the people there but I’m a West Ham United player and I’m looking forward to doing my best here.” said Nobby.
As for Parker, the Sunday clash with his old club will be his first senior appearance for West Ham after moving from United in his £7m switch to Upton Park.
