    Rain in Dubai – the west ham way. So much for warm weather training… although I suppose it will still be warm rain!

  • Hammer And Pickle says:

    Some of the WHTID users must have gone out there with them and taken those enormous big dark clouds with them that they permanently carry over their heads.Hence the unusual rain in the region lmao

    • Tom says:

      Now now H & P … some could argue why C&H are not advertising short stay visits out there to see the team train … horses for courses and all that … we are all West Ham fans

      • Hammer And Pickle says:

        Its horses for courses now is it?!?!?
        This coming from the man who said Codswallop & Hugh was an effing classless chav site that should be taken off of Newsnow!!!
        And you are lecturing me.I have read it all now.What happened to the we are all west ham fans sentiment during that statement of yours?!?!?

        • Tom says:

    All very well . Just hope the Palm Tree Oil and sun gets them playing some football .
    They will need to be oiled up and slick when they get back . Watford are no pushovers .
    Well they should be of course but , with our lot you never know .
    Wouldn’t like to be in Arsenals shoes right now but , the chance to be would be effing great .
    Hope the the long Arab nights and belly dancers work . But them there Belly Dancers are a sight to behold ; believe me .
