Diame arrived on a free transfer in the summer after seeing out his contract at Wigan.

The Senegal international is believed to have rejected several other offers to move to West Ham and the all-action midfielder has impressed in east London.

The 25-year-old has been instrumental in helping West Ham climb up to sixth spot in the table in their first season back in the Premier League and he feels his decision to join the Hammers has been vindicated.

"People did say 'Why are you going to West Ham when you can play in the Champions League?' but they can see why I did now," he told West Ham TV.

"It is a very big club in England and I am very happy to be here, now I am hoping that our good performances will continue.

"That is why I came here. When I spoke to the club I knew they were trying to build a very good team.

"We are working very hard every day on the training ground and you can see it is paying off."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
