West Ham Sign Alex Song And Immediately Start Playing Like Barcelona

West Ham Sign Alex Song And Immediately Start Playing Like Barcelona

West Ham's capture of Alex Song on loan might have gone under the radar with all that happened on deadline day. However, it seems that the Barcelona player seems to have had an immediate impact on the Hammer's style of play.

The London club scored an absolute beauty of a goal in an U-21 fixture against Ipswich. The Cameroon international linked up nicely with Ravel Morrison in this tika-taka play that was turned into the net by Diafra Sakho.

Admittedly, the stunning goal was scored in an U-21 match against Ipswich, but still it marks a stark contrast between the negative style of football Sam Allardyce's sides are often criticised for playing. Perhaps Song's presence will make Big Sam realise that the beautiful game isn't all about restarts, tactical fouls and standing on the keeper's toes.
