A desperate season has brought with it some rare moments of clarity - the Downfall video, 'Razzle Dazzle', the 'Lies' song, Bubbles' corner flag gesture, Mark Walker's steadfastness and HHS writing.

Good read, shame about bringing personal politics into it with the Nigel Farage remark.
No need for that, it's about West Ham nothing else.

Absolutely spot on HH, a great read yet again....

Would love you to do a 2017/18 season review..... would be hilarious reading that with a cold beer by the pool on holiday...

Thanks for all the comments and for reading. It's very much appreciated.

This is now the most widely read H List yet, although perhaps that's not a surprise given the topic.

I enjoyed it, and though not intended to be, wasn't as hilarious as last week..

In fact remembering it still brings a large smile to my face...cheers for the writing, always a good read..

I'm the one with my head in my hands and a daughter asking if we can go home yet. I'm not sure that narrows it down!

Because its a personal blog from his own personal blog site, and as such he is free to write what the hell he likes. (you and I dont have to agree with it though).
When you say 'its about West Ham and nothing else' , you are telling him what he should and shouldnt write about.

In actual fact He refers to quite a few things not connected with West Ham to illustrate his thoughts.in a humorous way
You have only pulled him on the one though.

Lol, get the same from my two sons and nephew mate.

Hopefully she’s comforted by having a dad who can write so well in a way that encapsulates the self deprecating humour most of us love about the club.....it’s about the only thing that makes some of us smile at the moment!

Cheers again mate

Always a brilliant read. Cheers me up, even if he is being a manic depressive. Always look for his diatribe which I mostly agree with, but even if I do not makes me chuckle.

Very well written once more.

I do think he's wrong about the treatment of Brady though. Perhaps a tiny amount of the stick she receives is because she is a woman. I think the overwhelming majority of it is because she is a horrible human who has played a massive part in destroying our club and has been handsomely paid to be an ****hole while doing so.

"It would be impossible to invent West Ham if we didn't already exist."

Ain't that the truth!

Sadly I share the concerns about the divided fanbase. On the other hand I know so many people who regularly go that would share the same overall thoughts. If Sullivan or Brady in particular were brave enough to take to the centre circle, 85% would cane them, 10% would want to know more and 5% would back them to hell or highwater.

You reflect a lot of how I feel stood there at the LS HHS and ta for that. A good summer to you :thup:

Thanks all - it's been a pleasure to read all the discussion and thoughtful commentary on the H List this season on KUMB.

Hope to check back in over the summer with a piece or two.
