West Ham musings by Pete May, author of Hammers in the Heart, West Ham:Irons in the Soul and Flying So High:West Ham's Cup Finals.

So Freddie Piquionne has gone on loan to Doncaster. He looked a decent striker when he first joined us, scoring the winner against Spurs. And he'd helped Portsmouth get to the FA Cup Final the previous season, scoring in the semi against Spurs. Yet very little has gone right for him since he scored for WHU at Everton, only to be sent off for celebrating in the crowd and getting a second yellow card. This season his biggest impact has been getting sent off and fined for fly-tipping in Essex, while also scoring a very lucky goal at Coventry. Perhaps his 33 years have caught up with him or his desire has waned, but it's strange how rapidly his Hammers career has declined.
