At last, a pundit who loves the Irons


SavageControversial Robbie Savage has paid West Ham a big compliment declaring them to be one of the few clubs he’d pay to watch.

He describes Slaven Bilic’s men as “a breath of fresh air”saying:”West Ham — especially Dimitri Payet – before he was injured – have been a breath of fresh air this season.

He adds in his Daily Mirror column: “As a neutral, I would happily pay to watch City, Leicester, West Ham, Palace and Tottenham in the Premier League at the minute.

But I wouldn’t cross the road right now to watch Aston Villa, Sunderland, West Brom, Newcastle or even Man United.

Best league in the world? Maybe it’s the richest, but so far this season the quality has left a lot to be desired.

    What can you say – well I suppose it’s good to see that even Robbie Savage can talk sense occassionally!

    On another point, I’m reading this morning that there is yet another International break over the Easter Holiday and there’s no Premiership football over the Easter break – don’t these International weekends drive you nuts!!
