Can Morrison Turn His Life And Career Around At West Ham?

Losing talented players is never an easy thing for football clubs to do with. Over the years of course Manchester United and all the top clubs in Europe have been used to bringing in talented youngsters who seemingly have bright futures in the game.

However they very rarely let such talent go which they have nurtured and have hoped to mould into a superstar of tomorrow. For reasons which have been well documented United have let the enigmatic enigma who is Ravel Morrison go.

Whether or not Morrison will emerge from his dark clouds that hanged over him which he had in Manchester and mature as a person and as a footballer at West Ham, only time can tell, but it may not sound a bad move for him.

Sam Allardyce has worked wonders with players who have had bad reputations as being trouble-makers. You may not like him, but he has to be respected. Here is a man who got the best out of that wonderful chap named El-Hadji Diouf twice at both Bolton and at Blackburn

Allardyce has a knack of working with tainted players and you can bet that Sir Alex Ferguson would not have sold one of his good friends a damaged egg, so to speak in Morrison if he didn’t think it was in his friend’s best interests.

Morrison has certainly created a bad perception and the move to London and the Championship will give him a chance to lie low and get back to playing football, which right now given all the negative press he’s been getting will be the best thing for him.

Whether or not he will fall back into the same dark circles again or not, is something only time will be able to tell us. It’s now up to him to prove Sir Alex wrong, becoming the player and person that everyone at Old Trafford wanted him to be.  If he does that, it will be some story to say the least.
