Andy Carroll believes the quality of the West Ham squad and the strength in depth is capable of making a sustainable push for a place in Europe.


West Ham boss Sam Allardyce says he believes Andy Carroll will soon be back to his best if he looks after himself physically - and the love of his fiancee could be key.

Carroll has an outside chance of making it into the squad against Aston Villa at the weekend, but Allardyce admits he's cautious about how quickly the former Liverpool striker should be brought back into the side.


Despite interest from Premier League rivals for Winston Reid, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce said he has not given up hope of keeping hold of his centre-half.

Reid is out of contract in the summer, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool said to be keeping a close eye on his situation in east London.

West Ham have signed former Fulham striker Mladen Petric until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old Croatian left the Cottagers in the summer after a one-year contract expired but failed to land another club. He scored five goals in 23 appearances.


Sam Allardyce has signed winger Stewart Downing ahead of Saturday's first game of the season against Cardiff at the Boleyn.

But the West Ham manager is likely to want for more bodies in before the transfer deadline as the Hammers look to build on the club's successful return to the Premier League last season.
