West Ham loan star Alex Song hints at permanent Premier League transfer

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce praised his team's all-around performance in their victory against Manchester City.

Alex Song has revealed that he could make a permanent return to the Premier League after an impressive start to his loan spell with West Ham.

The 27-year-old Cameroon international left Arsenal for Barcelona in 2012, but was loaned to the Hammers by the Spanish side this summer.

Song is among a number of new recruits starring for Sam Allardyce's side as they currently sit in fourth place in the table, and the midfielder says he could be tempted to leave the Camp Nou for England at the end of the...

Andy Carroll desperate to help fire West Ham towards Europe

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce praised his team's all-around performance in their victory against Manchester City.

Andy Carroll is hoping to help West Ham's European qualification push this season upon his return to fitness.

Carroll, 25, has now resumed training with the Hammers after sustaining an ankle injury during the summer, meaning he has yet to feature this term.

But Sam Allardyce's side have started the campaign in impressive fashion without him, and currently sit fourth in the Premier League following wins against Liverpool and Manchester City.

"I think we can push right on for Europe," Carroll told...

Sam Allardyce has the last laugh as West Ham flourish

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce praised his team's all-around performance in their victory against Manchester City.

At the end of last season, a beleaguered Sam Allardyce was set a challenge by the directors of West Ham United. It was no longer enough to survive in the Premier League, they said. Now they had to be entertaining as well.

For many observers, it looked like the end of the road for "Big Sam." The supporters had turned against him after a miserable winter saw the Hammers play 14 games through December and January, losing 10 of them and conceding 34 goals in the process.

Decimated by an injury crisis...

'Bobby Moore: The Man in Full' poses more questions than answers

Bobby Moore, England's first and only World Cup-winning captain, was a complex character whose life is dissected in Bobby Moore: The Man in Full.

There is an inherent dichotomy at the heart of Matt Dickinson's new book: "Bobby Moore: The Man in Full." While the inside cover poses the questions, "What of the failed businesses, whispers of bad behaviour, links to the East End underworld and turbulent private life?" the back dust jacket quotes Moore's friend...

Ancelotti triumphs, van Gaal's progress, Dortmund disappoint, more

The ESPN FC panel discuss the player ratings following El Clasico.

You can't really call Real Madrid's clasico win a tactical victory.

That's because frankly, manager Carlo Ancelotti -- as he promised ahead of the game when he said there would be "no surprises" -- did nothing particularly fancy that night. His XI -- with Isco in for the injured Gareth Bale -- picked itself. (Or, if you're really, really cynical, you might say a man named Florentino Perez picked it.)

What Madrid did was execute and figure out a way to get a lopsided, top-heavy lineup to work against...
