No singing the blues

Filed: Monday, 1st April 2019

West Ham United's first team stars will not be recording a charity EP in the near future - despite our piece this morning intimating that would indeed be the case.

For today is of course April Fools Day and our story was just the latest example of tomfoolery and silliness on the opening day of the fourth month of the year - a KUMB tradition (an occasionally prescient one, at that) which stretches back to the beginning of the century, as you may see from our list below.

Happy April, everyone!
