Byram the Essex Man
Good to discover that new signing Sam Byram is an Essex Man, born in Thurrock though his family later moved to Yorkshire. He should have a feeling for the club as there are quite a few Irons in his family. Sam says, ""My uncle and my cousin are big West Ham fans and have bought their tickets for the new stadium. My uncle was down here yesterday getting a shirt with my name on the back."
My Leeds-supporting pal is gutted that Byram is leaving and apparently there have been comparisons with Gareth Bale due to his surging ruins down the right. He;s scored three goals foe Leeds this season including a tasty effort at Forest and a header at Fulham. Looking forward to seeing Sam in action…
