Barcelona bizarrely thought they were getting a defensive player in Alex Song when they signed him two years ago but, as he re-emphasised for West Ham's Under-21s, he's actually a handy attacker.
In his last season at Arsenal Song provided the passes for Robin van Persie to memorably volley past Tim Howard and Pepe Reina - two of the outstanding goals of that Premier League season - and the Cameroonian showcased his flair at Upton Park on Thursday night.
Song and Ravel Morrison combined superbly to gift Diafra Sakho a tap-in against Ipswich. Song flicked the ball to Morrison, who returned it immediately, and the former Gunner then provided a rabona for the ex-Manchester United man to run onto and assist Sakho.
The credit goes to Sam Allardyce.Suggest a correction
