The Return Of King Carlos?!

With deadline day rapidly approaching, transfer activity at West Ham United was hardly at fever pitch. We have loaned in George John, who joins the influx of MLS player joining the English leagues (following Tim Reem, Landon Donovan and of course, the legend that is Thierry Henry) and a future star for the academy in the form of ex-Man United trainee Joe Dixon on a two month loan basis. But these current signings are hardly going to light up the Championship anytime soon...

But then, on Saturday evening, some shocking news started to arise (the source of which is unknown to me) that would have every Hammer dancing in excitement: our Argentinian prodigal son could possibly be reappear in claret and blue on a short term loan deal. Of course, it would be foolish for the West Ham faithful to get their hopes up yet, but the timing of the rumour and the knowledge we have of Tevez has got people talking. We know that he has fallen out with virtually everyone at Eastlands, we know he is looking for a quick getaway, and we know that he would like to return to Upton Park one day.

Tevez would be an ideal player to have during the promotion push during the second half of the season. Not only would he be an instantaneous fan favourite and encourage the East End crowd to get behind their team a lot more, he also has the class ability that has seen him tear up expert defences worldwide, during his playing career on the red and blue side of Manchester. He would work well with either Carlton Cole or the incoming Nikica Jelavić from Rangers. Or if Allardyce wanted to adapt a 4-3-3 formation, Carlos and Baldock could combine on the wings. If the incredible did happen, I'm sure that the manager would find a style of play that would maximise the potential threat of the Manchester City forward.

Before West Ham fans go fantasising about a bright future with Tevez at the helm, we must first be realistic. These are only rumours, and Kia Joorabchian (his agent) has already stated that someone of the Argentinians calibre would prefer a move to a bigger club. But stranger things have happened in the crazy world of football...
