Upson upbeat on WHUTV

Matthew Upson has told WHUTV that he is delighted to be going from strength to strength at West Ham United.

Having seen his Boleyn Ground career get off to a disappointing start last February when he picked up a calf injury that all but wrecked his season, Upson has had no problems this campaign. The 28-year-old is the only outfield player to have featured in every minute of all ten league games played to date, and has particularly excelled in the recent three-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

"Last season is completely forgotten about," he told WHUTV. "It is gone now and I am looking at the future and staying fit. I want to keep performing as well as I can." Along with in-form England goalkeeper Robert Green and the ever-consistent George McCartney, Upson has helped provide the platform for a fine start that sees the club looking upwards in mid-table and contemplating the Carling Cup quarter-finals.

Log on to WHUTV now, to hear more from the centre-back, including his thoughts on:

  • The last two away games
  • Bolton Wanderers and his former Arsenal team-mate Nicola Anelka
  • His changing partners at centre-back
  • The dream of an England recall
