OK, it’s a slow news day so why not?
And I promise I won’t mention his name again but Richard Keys’ comments about West Ham burning out followed by a “we’ll see” deserves one comment.
And it was made perfectly by passionate Irons fan @Steven52Lebeau on Twitter when he made his feelings very clear with a comment that cut to the heart of Keys’ highly flawed argment.
The disgraced TV presented – now involved in a Middle Eastern no mark TV operation – had claimed we could face burn out having started our season so early having played 12 games.
The only reason this was flagged up by this site is because he has made a point of having a little sideswipe at the club since Mr Allardyce departed with whom we understand he is firm friends.
Mr Lebeau was having none of such a false argument and put a perfect perspective on the man’s website ramblings declaring: “Where does he get 12 games from? We only played 6 Europa Cup games and a lot of kids played. He is clueless.”
The 12 are of both Europa Cup and normal pre-season games played by all teams for fitness reasons when absolutely everybody – I think it was 37 of them – got a chance.
Such basic lack of research tells us everything!
