A Cracking Signing For Hammers

News that West Ham has signed former Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg and promptly issued him the No. 7 shirt

was a real tonic for this supporter. With Tevez leaving, what we needed was some guile to add to the pace and power in the side, and this bloke fits the bill nicely. The fact that he's Sweden's captain brings a nice element of leadership to the equation. He may not bang the goals in like he used to, but he will surely set up the likes of Ashton, Bellamy and Zamora. He's the kind of signing that can push Hammers 3 to 5 places up the table. With Ljungberg on board, the season has a much more stable look about it.
