West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green is confident there will be no fire sale at Upton Park in January. The financial uncertainty at the club has prompted suggestions that manager Gianfranco Zola may be forced to part with his best players next month.Craig Bellamy has been the subject of a bid from Tottenham Hotspur and has also been linked with a move to Manchester City.Hammers team-mate Scott Parker is also a rumoured target for City, while Matthew Upson has been tipped for a New Year transfer.However, Green has been assured by chief executive Scott Duxbury there will be no mass exodus from the club."It's something which is completely out of our control," said Green in the Daily Star."These things happen in life, but we've been assured as senior players that there won't be a fire sale from the chief executive and we'll just have to wait and see."I'm happy playing for West Ham in the most exciting league in the world. What more motivation do you need?"You don't want to go out and have a bad game, and I love playing for West Ham. "You look at the team and everyone who gets out there wants to play well for West Ham. There's not many unhappy faces, if any, in the camp."But there's not much I can do about it. All I can do is keep playing well. I want to play for West Ham, all the lads do."There are things that are beyond our control and there are things that go on that's not down to us as players."(skysports.com 30.12.2008)
Ich hatte vor der Saison ein Angebot aus England. Wäre ich bloß hingegangen. In England ist Fußball wenigstens noch Männersport - und nichts für Tunten.

Einige Leute halten Fußball für einen Kampf auf Leben und Tod. Ich mag diese Einstellung nicht. Ich versichere Ihnen, daß es weit ernster ist.
