Grant talks transfer targets

December 19, 2010

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."
