The Kevin Nolan Question
One of the biggest questions facing West Ham at the moment seems to be - "Is Kevin Nolan a good enough captain to justify his inclusion in the team?"
The consensus seems to be that Nolan has so far been disappointing in a West Ham shirt. Gary Portugal argues in an article on KUMB that Nolan is 'failing on all counts'.
In yesterday's Evening Spamhead Nolan himself admitted that he has yet to give his best to West Ham,
"To be honest I'm not happy with my own form but it's been quite difficult, I've moved to a city where I never thought I would live and I have my family.
"At the end of the day though, I know I have to start playing and lift my game and when we're not playing well, I'm my worst critic. I'm not happy but I think I can still add something to the team."
