Is Cole Staying?
The big news today is that West Ham have not signed Eidur Gudjohnsen. Gudjohnsen passed a medical on Friday and looked all set to sign for West Ham.
Sam Allardyce says the decision was West Ham's because Eidur was taking too long making up his mind,
"The bottom line was that for me, Eidur had enough time to make a decision. The time I gave him elapsed so instead of us sitting and waiting for him, I decided from my point of view that it was better to call the deal off."
However the KUMB forums on Saturday were full of rumours that Gudjohnsen had rejected West Ham to sign for AEK Athens.
There is a also a third possibility. After Carlton Cole couldn't agree personal terms with Stoke, West Ham might just have decided they can't afford to sign another forward. This could mean that West Ham have decided not to try and offload Cole.
I certainly hope so. Personally I'd much prefer to see Cole at West Ham than Gudjohnsen.
