West Ham development squad trounced Ipswich 5-0 tonight, but the main talking point was four goals from Elliot Lee. At a time when the first team are struggling to score, young Elliot must be wondering what he has to do to get picked for the first team. He has been banging in goal after goal for the development squad this season, but Sam Allardyce somehow refuses to trust the youngster to do the business for the first team. Modibo Maiga has been clearly ineffective in front of goal this season, but still Allardyce stubbornly persists with him. A resurgent Ricardo Vaz Te is also knocking on the door and may get the nod for the Hull game tomorrow, but surely now Allardyce must give Lee a chance in the next few games. I know he is not 7 foot tall and he doesn’t fit the Big Sam template of a striker, but the manager must surely now dust off Plan B and give it a try while Carroll is still crocked. Surely?
