Many in the United States know the toil of supporting a shit sports team, the Philadelphia Phillies, the New York Knicks, or the Tampa Bay Bucs.
With the recent 3-0 home victory over Hull City, our first league win since December 20th, talk on whether or not West Ham can still qualify for Europe has been re-ignited. We currently sit in 7th place on 36 points after just 22 games and are only four points off the Champions League. How long can the Hammers keep in the race for the European places?
When it has come to West Ham United's move to the Olympic stadium, I guess I have been a fence-sitter for most of the process. I could see the pros and cons but never felt totally one way or another on the issue to start with.
With the FA Cup 3rd round tie against Everton coming up this week, itís a good time to reflect on what we Hammers fans expect from our club.
First things first. Chelsea were too good for us. Going to Stamford Bridge where the record now stands at eight played, eight won was always going to be a big ask to take anything from the game. The gulf in class was just too big, and even if Song and Sakho had started, I believe we would still have been beaten as convincingly.
So we were expecting it to be all peace and light at Boleyn Towers amongst our bickering hierarchy, season of goodwill and all that. Yea, right, and pigs might fly.
We spoke to ex-Rokerite Colin Randall of Salut Sunderland! for his thoughts ahead of this weekend's clash at the Stadium of Light...
Pretty good, that feeling when we were third in the Premier League. It may have lasted only for about 30 hours, but it was special all the same.
I was delighted for Andy Carroll this weekend.
