Topsy turvy games which should be won are drawn, the manager claims they will have to “torture” Winston Reid to get him to sign – he immediately agreed a new deal.
The big issue – Sam Allardyce’s future – seemed settled, then enter stage right comes Ms Brady – whoops sorry Lady something of somewhere.
But that’s West Ham for you – always a drama…always a soap opera. The fact that we’ve had one league win in ten games and the team is on the slide appears to matter not one jot – Lady Brady reckons Sam’s the bizzo and the dramas start again.
This would all be jolly good fun were it not for the fact that this is all being written and acted out in a newspaper column and I’m pretty certain that this is not a commission which is authorised or vetted by the club.
It’s not the first time such a situation has arisen and some will recall she suggested that Steve Gerrard could be a good signing – very publicly and rather crazily – although talk of an illegal approach was a bit over the top.
Quite how her outburst on the Sam thing will affect the old boy’s position at the end of the season remains to be seen but the knee jerk reaction was that this was all a bit off the wall and not required.
Personally despite it throwing a few spokes in the wheel temporarily I reckon the last ten results will be a lot more important to Sam’s future than anything Ms Brady may have had to say.
But it was very West Ham wasn’t it?
