Itís about time to be positiveÖ and yes, I know thatís the last thing you expected to hear from me after such a long time being a cynical old bugger where West Ham are concerned.
West Ham has long been in the business of what my best friend refers to as the 'Band-Aid Effect'.
After a terrific victory such as the weekend's visit to Huddersfield, West Ham fans should rightly feel pleased as punch this morning.
Itís now over, the worst year I can recall in West Hamís history. I donít know about you lot, but I couldnít wish 2017 further away!
The question is, after another weekend of claret and blue fury, do we at West Ham have a persecution complex or does everybody just hate us?
