Selection Problems for Allardyce
In Sam Allardyce's Manager on Monday post on the official West Ham website Big Sam discusses his enviable selection problems,
"We have a good squad and more players to come in. We have got to get them fitter and some of the players are going to be disappointed now as they won't even make the bench. I will have to handle that in the right way but all the players will get used over the course of the 46 games."
"Henri has set the bar high so I will be saying to him that I expect at least that every week! We are happy to be able to have got him on loan from Arsenal. David Bentley also showed his ability when he came on and that kind of experience is going to be important for us in being able to change personnel and systems whenever the need be.
"Guy and Papa are a couple of weeks away and will have hard intensive training and some matches behind closed doors to get their fitness up. David Bentley will also benefit, while John Carew only got two substitute appearances with the national side."
