Every morning the first stop for many of us is a look-see at Cockney Hammerís daily press review on the KUMB General Discussion forum. CH spends an inordinate amount of his life ploughing through the bowels of the tabloid press so that the likes of you and I donít have to.
Itís a sign of the turbulent season us Hammers have endured that we find ourselves looking forward to a Thursday night in Wales!

Although well into middle-age I still receive a little childish thrill every time I receive an email.
