One comment on “Hammers look for a double

  1. The Hammers may be looking for a double over Man United but they might need to go to Specsavers and find the most optimistic pair of goggles possible. What the team has delivered in the last several games does not lend itself to much optimism. And I might suggest that Moyes ensures that his players are wide awake and do not give away any free gifts like we did in the last game. I guess Moyes master plan is to defend, defend, defend and pass sideways and back, as usual. God help us!
