Radio Eggert

So don't become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know or just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Eggert Magnusson has always had a tendency to give insightful and honest interviews to the Icelandic media and today he was a guest on a Reykjav√≠k FM radio show. The Footbolti website provided details of his appearance in which the West Ham chairman discussed his hectic life at the football club. "I'm usually up before half past six. We have to start early and I'm off to bed pretty late also. There is plenty work to be done," said Magnusson, who expects more players to check in at West Ham in the coming weeks. "I think at least two world class players will be added to the squad. It's also certain that there will be players leaving, like our captain Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood. Other players could also depart." On the subject of incoming talent, Magnusson categorically denied the club is about to make a move for Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen. "The player gets constantly linked to the club but we are not looking to sign any Icelandic players," he said. "We are looking for a speedy striker and we all know that Eidur isn't the quickest. He’s not a player we’re interested in at the moment. We are focusing on bringing in a striker with lots of pace."

A lot has been talked about the future of Carlos Tevez at West Ham and Magnusson is optimistic the player will remain at Upton Park. "We sincerely hope so. He’s our player to keep for the next three years. We are currently in the process of renegotiating his salary and contract and without giving too much away I am very hopeful that he will remain at the club." With reference to the latest arbitration hearing, the Chairman revealed he has few concerns. He said: "I have no worries over that matter. We are a Premiership club and we earned that status by getting more points than the relegated sides. Therefore the hopeless battle of a few relegated clubs is ridiculous."
