The Sun, reports that West Ham boss Alan Curbishley is ‘poised` to make a £10 million bid for El Hadji Diouf, backing up the claim with things that the player said two weeks ago, on an entirely unrelated matter.

West Ham supporters are thrilled about the potential acquisition. Rupert Murdoch`s flagship is the paper of choice at the Boleyn Ground, and is seen by Hammers fans as an intellectual publication, so the story is being taken seriously.

“Diouf is quality and proved himself to be a consistent performer for Bolton,” writes one excited poster on, a fans website.

Of course, this may be a complete mis-representation of the facts, but if the Sun can do it, why can`t we?

Hammer`s Delight
