I remember during Arry's time, we were linked to a Japanese player called Tsuneyasu Miyamoto. Can't remember exactly which year.

I also saw a photo with a South Korean international Kim Nam-il having a trial with us.

That could be the player LeonRivers or DaveWHU1964 saw..

Technically, cos he signed for us. Technically cos he appeared for Turkey B


Ok then, technically, just one new one!

And I remember it being two South Korean trialists Harry brought at the same time but reserve the right to be totally wrong about that!

Interesting. I saw him play in Korea a few times and he did well in the 2002 World Cup. Little bloke, blonde hair, looked a bit chipmunky. Used to scurry down the wing. A sort of blonde Korean David Fairclough.

Apologies if this already been said but surely Sasa Ilic the most memorable by far! Had no idea he was Serbian! :lol: And also the Coker in the list, was that Ade Coker, if so saw his debut at Palace and he scored in a 3-0 win!!! Brian Moore's "Coker!" Now there was the daddy of all commentators!!!

Crazy how our first Spaniard was less than ten years ago and now we've had 6! I remember signing Kepa and everyone going on about him being our first ever Spanish player. Scored with his first touch then did nothing :lol:

Jonathan Calleri is West Ham's 7th Argentine. :crest:

Argentina are now the joint-third most represented nation, level with Senegal and Portugal (behind France [17] and Australia [9]).

Was last night the first time West Ham have ever started a game with no British players?
