Hacked Hammer – an explanation

DrampisAn eagle-eyed ClaretandHugh reader may have come up with the explanation as to why Greek striker Errikos Drampis may have been ‘hacked’ into the West Ham squad list.

The striker’s name caused much confusion when it was spotted in the Irons  squad list.

But top club officials last night told this site that they appear to have fallen victim to a hacking scam as we have no player of that name in our squad.

The question is: Why?”

Now it seems CandH follower Greg Richards via his twitter handle @Made_of-Iron may have come up with the answer.

He tweeted: “I think someone is having a laugh at our expense. His name is an anagram of ‘Despair and Smirk.’ Good advice for us Hammers fans.”

  1. I noticed Drampis was also shown (briefly) playing alongside Noble on the Sky Sports Football App!! He had Kouyate’s squad number.

  2. Nope
    Despair and Smirk only has two letter r.
