Ayew back, Fernándes playing great, Obiang emerges as the missing link we have been crying out for, Chelsea outplayed.
Headlines? West Ham fans cause riot.
It’s been educational though.
For instance, we now know that’s it was actually West Ham fans who invaded Poland in the 1930s, West Ham fans that shot JR in the 70s, took down the twin towers, and the biggest revelation is that Lord Voldemort is a West ham season ticket holder! (That last one is true though, hi Jonjo if you’re reading).
The Chelsea fan that thought it was a great idea to take his nine year old daughter to a high risk night game has been on every show you can think of.
Apparently he is about to be airlifted into the jungle for I’m a Celeb, as soon as he has honoured his commitments with Big Brother on Channel 5.
Fortunately, while this chap knew exactly who threw this week’s pocket money at his daughter, the youngster herself was equally as honest in saying they didn’t know where it came from really.
The honesty of children is a beautiful thing…..
Incidentally, the Dad didn’t say he got hit at all? Who said human shields were only in war zones…
Some people have suggest Dan Roan was outside the ground with a bucket of change, asking people if they were Chelsea fans, but I don’t believe it myself……
What a big performance from the Hammers. Sure the moronic Talksport folk claimed it was a Chelsea B side that played us, with that reserve striker that cost them over 40m starting instead of Costa etc, but make no mistake, our flair, confidence and the swagger which we saw almost every week last season was there in abundance.
After weeks of wondering where last season’s West Ham had gone, the police finally called off their search with them being found alive and well in e15.
It’s been a struggle so far this season, but at last the green shoots of recovery are starting to sprout.
With Sakho on his way back and Ayew already in the match day squad, the future is finally looking a bit brighter than it did a month ago.
With Everton this weekend, we go into it in a much healthier frame of mind than we have previously, so let’s hope we can pull off another great performance like we did last year (my favourite win of the season).
With the new found confidence and reinforcements, we can once again dare to dream.
