KUMB's Gone To Iceland

According to a report in Morgunbladid West Ham have offered a trial to 16 year old Icelandic striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson. The highly rated youngster played a key role in guiding Iceland to the U17 European Championship Finals, scoring four goals against Russia and a further two against Northern Ireland. There has been a great deal of reported interest in Sigthorsson from all across Europe and Arsene Wenger has long tracked the player, inviting him to train with Arsenal every year since he was 13 years of age. Predictably, some commentators have already labelled the rising star the 'next Eidur Gudjohnsen'.

In an otherwise slow news day, KUMB
have published both parts of their exclusive interview with Eggert Magnusson in which the West Ham chairman discusses the proposed new stadium, season ticket pricing and his reasons for buying the club last November.

Eggert Magnusson Q&A Part One
It's a beautiful warm, spring day in East London. Green Street - fittingly perhaps - reverberates to the sound of reggae emanating from the busy market as I follow that oft-trodden path from Upton Park tube station to the Boleyn Ground... Graeme Howlett

Eggert Magnusson Q&A Part Two
I'd like to ask you about the threat of relegation. Four years ago Terry Brown infamously said 'there will be no fire-sale at this club', and that players wouldn't be leaving. Are we likely to have a wholesale clearout this time should we be relegated?... Graeme Howlett
