Peters happy with Hammers progress

One of West Ham United's World Cup winners, Martin Peters MBE, dropped in at the Boleyn Ground this week for a chat with West Ham TV.

The legendary former Hammers midfielder was delighted to see Sam Allardyce's men start the season with a 2-0 victory over Cardiff, with both goals coming from midfield - a trait he was known for in his playing days.

"I always love coming back to West Ham after all the years I spent here," he told West Ham TV.

"I enjoyed watching them play on Saturday, they won 2-0 and they won very easily I thought.

"When you haven't got a big striker up front, the midfield men have got to go beyond the centre forward and get in the box. That's what they did and Kevin Nolan is very good in the position he plays because he floats around behind the striker but he also works back.

"I'm pleased to see Joe Cole back too and he took the goal very well."
