On This Day: Happy birthday Nobby Solano!

 

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold...

West Ham United enjoyed a season of Peruvian magic when Nolberto 'Nobby' Solano joined the Hammers from Newcastle United in the summer of 2007.

Solano, who celebrates his 45th birthday on 12 December, had spent seven seasons with Newcastle across two spells, and showed exactly why he had become a hero at St James' Park with a number of outstanding performances and goals in Claret and Blue.

The midfielder scored four goals in 23 Premier League appearances, including a spectacular free-kick in a 2-2 draw with another of his old clubs, Aston Villa, on his final appearance at the Boleyn Ground in May 2008.

Their mission is to challenge the market and create investment opportunities that are easy to understand, transparent and continuously control risk, while maintaining market-leading returns that meet investment goals. Click here to find out more.
