What’s going on? Barely an Irons moan-up to be heard

It’s on very slow news days such as this that you realise exactly how well things are going at the club right now

There’s nothing like a shortage of stories to create a “what’s going on ” mentality as summer turns to autumn!

It’s a bizarre feeling but may demonstrate there’s nothing like a good moan up to keep us lot going.

Such early season success as this is a new and, at times,  thoroughly disconcerting experience especially when the Spuds get stuffed 7-2.

Mind you, last Tuesday and Wednesday was reminiscent of the old days when we got done at Oxford but even that  faded quickly as the boys did their thing at Bournemouth.

For once the “we must do better” comments beloved of  beaten players was delivered and again we were left with nothing much to say beyond singing their praises.

Aaron Cresswell came right back to form against United and continued the good work at Bournemouth leaving us in a position where not even the old left back chestnut could  be revisited.

We were keeping clean sheets, scoring goals, getting results and now sit fifth in the table with little going on at all other than a comfortable feeling of well being spreading across the club and fans.

I saw a headline the other day which said: “They wear claret and blue but is this really West Ham.”

The Fabianski disaster hit us of course and there was a knee jerk reaction in some areas against poor old Roberto who has hardly had a chance to show what he’s about.

But that quickly evaporated as the vast majority made it clear they weren’t going to be that unjust towards the guy.

Strange days  but very welcome – are we truly seeing real signs of stability at this lovely old club of ours.

It certainly starts to feel like it!

  1. Happy hammer really , can only really take a dig at a few of the fringe players who knocked us out of the cup , but thats why thet are finge players , concidering our lot were pelting the dildo bros with coins 2 years ago theyve certainly stepped up , we would not pay fat sams buy out clause of 6 million a few years back , we spunk that on a pop corn stand now

  2. With respect Hugh, is your article meant to lure out the moaners or the realist? Agree with you what a nice feeling… satisfaction with log position.
    But no sir, we cannot and dare not ignore the areas of weakness, which if not corrected will lead to leaks and an ultimate deluge of the water which could take us down. And sir, a correction … Roberto has been given a fair chance … many pre-season games, whilst Martin got nothing. And we lost the majority including against a struggling team below us, called Newcastle. He also had a full half and a bit on sat, and messed up with his first 4 touches.
    Are us realists faulted if we worry. We also have Anderson, who apart from some amazing magical moves and runs, fails to create goals for his outstanding centre-forward capable of scoring 20+ goals per season …. and has not even scored a goal .. pre-season included.
    So despite these 2 concerns, and others not mentioned, let’s continue to enjoy the good feeling. Been a very long time. Happy days are here again. Long may it continue. Coyi. God bless. ⚽⚒⚒⚒🏆

    • No it really wasn’t intended to do either Simon. After running this for nearly six years it’s just nice to have a moan free period – that was all 🙂 No ulterior motives

  3. Dont worry, were still here, waiting for something to moan about 😂

    Looking forwards to how the first half of the season pans out!

    Happy hammer!

  4. Why oh why is this happening? I’m fed up of no-one moaning on the site today! It’s all the fault of the Daves, MP, all the players, our medical staff (c’mon – why are all our treatment tables nerly emply?) and especially Hugh and Sean. I’m sick of it!!! I give the fact that no-one’s moaning today a rating of 0/10. Where is Bubbles when you need him?? Come On You Moaners!

  5. It’s definitely a nice feeling to see no real moaning at the moment . But don’t worry it will return with a vengeance if we lose to Palace .
