Chadwell Chatter

Hello everybody.

I was thrilled to be named as Barclays Premier League Player of the Month for October on Friday.

It's an award that's not just for me - it's for the whole club. West Ham have welcomed me incredibly well since the very first day and this is the best way for me to say thank you to the supporters.

There isn't really a secret as to how I've settled in. I've worked hard here and I worked hard at my previous club, Metz.

I didn't think the adaptation process would be this fast, but I would also like to thank my old coaches at Metz, who helped me progress, and I hope I can continue in the same vein of form for the rest of the season.

Of course I'm very happy to be part of the history of this Club, by scoring in six consecutive Premier League games. Scoring goals is very important but the main thing is for the Club to reach its objectives.

I'm ready to return on Saturday. I've been ready since Monday and of course the final decision is down to the manager whether I start the game or not, but I'm ready to help the team again.

Finally, I was delighted to be named in the Senegal squad for their games next week against Botswana and Egypt. For all the Senegalese people the dream is to win against Egypt and we will do our best to achieve qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations and return a smile to our people.

Come on you Irons!
