    Although there is no way to predict acts of God concerning landslides etc, I feel there is more that can be done for the thousands of West Ham fans travelling to the Hawthorns.

    This “step straight on” replacement bus service doesn’t sound ideal. Has any thought been given to a possible replacementcoach service for instance?

    But having said that it will take more than a landslide to stop our fans turning up in their their legions to support the Irons on their way to Wembley! COYI!
