West Ham boss Allardyce: Cole performance massive boost

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is convinced he's pulled off a coup in Joe Cole's capture.

Cole marked his second debut for West Ham with two assists and his manager is now looking forward to seeing if he can once again deliver on a regular basis for his boyhood club. And judging by the reaction of the Boleyn Ground faithful, they too are also excited about what could lie ahead for the returning Hammers No.26.

Allardyce told whufc.com: "We know Joe has it in the locker. You don't play for Chelsea and win the league, the FA Cup and play for England 56 times if you don't. The fans made him feel good.

"It made him feel good when he ran on how they welcomed him, and more importantly even better when he came off, with even bigger applause and a bigger cheer for what he's done. A player feeling good about who he is playing in front of is a massive bonus."
