Cole convinced Payet

West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has stated that Joe Cole convinced him to come to West Ham.

He said that he met the player when he was playing at Lille and that Joe Cole has always been talking positively about West Ham. He stated that this has convinced him to sign for the Hammers and that so far he has not regretted doing it.


Coach of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has told former Inter Milan star Mario Balotelli that he has no part in his plans at Anfield.

The Italy international was one of the most talked about player a few years back for his off the field activities but he was able to still get things right on the field of play, until his performance started to decline. Balotelli was impressive at the Euro 2012, but he couldn’t get to such heights regularly at Manchester City. He had problems with his team mates and then coach Roberto Mancini.


Former Coventry City star Joe Cole remains impressive for Tampa Bay Rowdies since his move last month to the club.

The American club defeated Ottawa Fury FC 2-1 on Saturday in a game that is the final at home in the NASL Spring Season. Joe Cole produced an impressive performance for the team managed by Stuart Campbell. Cole scored one of the goals set up another in the 2-0 win at Minnesota United FC 2-0 to earn the NASL Player of the Week award. When he was receiving the award, he said:


Coventry player, Joe Cole, is billed to follow the steps of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher in helping English youngsters, the Under-18 squad.

The former Chelsea, Liverpool, West Ham and Aston Villa attacking midfielder has had a decent career in the English Premier League and the international scene playing for England under-16, under-18, under-21 before eventually breaking into the national team. He follows the footsteps of ‘captain fantastic’ Steven Gerrard and Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher. Ex-Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has also done this in the past.

Joe Cole is enjoying his twilight career in Coventry City

Joe Cole has gone from being signed to a loan deal with Coventry City and 3 months later becoming a permanent player for the English League One club.

At the age of 34, Joe Cole is reaching the last few stages of his career and even though this is the first time that the English midfielder has performed and joined a club in the 3rd tier English League, Joe Cole is excited about what’s lying ahead.

Joe Cole has showered the praise on his former manager Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea winger Joe Cole has showered the praise on his former manager Jose Mourinho even though it is widely acknowledged that his career went downhill after the arrival of the Portuguese.

Cole was regarded as one of the few English players with immense technical abilities. He was seen as the next Paul Gascoigne, but his career has been on a downhill in the last five years due to a combination of injuries and poor form. Cole is now playing with League One outfit Coventry City while a number of his former colleagues have gone on to better things.

Slaven Bilic, is upbeat about the Crystal palace visit

The West Ham United boss, Slaven Bilic, is upbeat about the Crystal palace visit.

Wes Ham has proved to be one of the most dominating travelling teams in the ongoing season.
They have beaten the likes of City and the Gunners playing on their respective home grounds.
And now, they are looking to add Palace to their scalps too as they return to the Premier League again post international break.

West Ham’s attacking play has been as good as any other team. They’ve found the net 17 times and are equalized to City in that regard.
