West Ham through in FA Cup

* West Ham bounced back to a 4-2 victory over Blackburn Rovers after conceding a goal within the first half-minute of the match. The game wasn't televised here so I can't comment on it except to say that Pardew has a real striker selection problem - of the good kind!

* Actually that's not quite true. I'd like to suggest the West Ham fans to get off Dailly's back - what has he done to earn your wrath? OK, he's no Zidane, but he has worked hard and played out of position.

* Yossi Benayoun is in trouble after allegedly talking with Hapoel Tel Aviv without West Ham's permission. The Israel club want to pay £8.5 million for the playmaker and Yossi is quoted as saying, "There were talks recently with Hapoel Tel Aviv and Beitar Jerusalem and when the offer is seriously put to the club rather than just me, I will think."

* West Ham have been linked with a move for Lille fullback Mathieu Chalme. The 25-year-old has Champions League experience against no lesser opposition than Manchester United, and is touted as a possible replacement for the departed Tomas Repka.
