West Ham hoping to bolster midfield with Chelsea reject summer bid

Steve Sidwell should have guessed this would happen, the entire footballing world could have told the one time Reading man it would end this way. There wasn’t a hope in hell that the former Arsenal midfielder would get a fair crack of the whip at Stamford Bridge so the fact that he is being linked with West Ham is no surprise whatsoever!

One man sure to welcome him in will be Scott Parker, the both of them can compare notes on the comfort factor of the Chelsea subs bench. They can compare and contrast the merits of those world beaters whose name invariably beat there’s into the starting eleven. The sad thing truth is though that surely both players are so similar that they will more than likely keep one or the other out of the side and then leave the other to a life of misery on the West Ham bench! Oh the irony!
