Hitzlsperger Doubt for Saturday
Thomas Hitzlsperger was substituted, with what the West Ham website are calling a 'possible muscle injury', in Germany's game last night against Denmark.
The German media have quoted Hitzlesperger as saying, 'I hope I can play the season opener this weekend.', which hopefully means the injury isn't too serious.
The Sun are reporting that Jeremie Aliadiere has been given a trial at West Ham. Aliadiere is a free agent after not being given a new contract by Middlesbrough. Aliadiere had a previous unsuccessful loan at West Ham in 2005.
I seem to remember him blaming West Ham after he left for the fact that he had been so useless. So I'm a bit surprised he wants to come back.
The Mail report that West Ham have also given a trial to Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Paul Smith, 30.
