Grant talks transfer targets

Reports have suggested that the West Ham boss has been given just

three games to save his job following a torrid first half to the

season. The first of those fixtures came at Blackburn on Saturday,

with the Ewood Park clash one of few to beat the big freeze. The

Hammers were able to avoid defeat against Rovers, but a 1-1 draw

was not enough to lift them off the foot of the table. They will

now occupy 20th spot at Christmas, which historically means they

are destined for the drop. Grant, though, is refusing to give up

hope and insists he has been given no indication that he will be

given the boot should results fail to improve. Instead, the Israeli

coach claims he has already opened talks with his board regarding

possible New Year recruits. “Nobody said it to me and I’m not busy

about these things,” Grant said when pressed again on the claims

that he now has only two games in which to avoid the axe. “I only

care about what I talk about with the owners. “We speak only about

how to make this team stronger in January and they give me full

support in this. “They try to do their best but they bought the

team with big debt, more than £100million. It’s not easy but

we need to do the best for the team.”
