West Ham Ignore Finn
With rumours circulating that West Ham could be taken over next week The Guardian reports that the board denied the consortium led by Eggert Magnusson the chance to study their books so that he can make a full, formal offer to take over.
The consortium led by Kia Joorabchian has been allowed to conduct due diligence, however, fuelling speculation that the West Ham board are close to selling.
The paper also states that the West Ham players have been watching a video designed to create a 'warrior mentality'.
"It covers a lot of excuses we have used. It's a message that excuses are not good enough," said Alan Pardew. Apparently the players are also under orders to shoot earlier and more often in a bid to end the goal glut.
