Dickensian Rights and the Orphans in the Workhouses

Who would have believed that in the twenty first century of footballing tribulations, the West Ham fans would be facing the fight of their supporting lives?

Moore’s the Pitiful Display!

West Ham fans arrived at the London Stadium on Saturday last to spur on the team to better performance and result, to march in protest and to remember a fallen hero some 25 years past. It was meant to be so much Moore but the spectacle was anything but and it was hardly befitting his great memory. In all of the hullabaloo it seems many had forgotten what the day was supposed to be about. There were videos …
