The armadillos and the red hot poker stars!

For those living outside of the bubble, the day was like any other…dull, damp and downright deplorably committed to retail therapy commissioned by the ladies of the lamp, however for those inside…it was a whirlwind of mixed and turbulent emotions, a struggle with impersonal sanity and the journey through hellish nightmares until the first ball was kicked. The West Ham masses had been feeling increasingly uncomfortable all week, waiting for when Saturday comes to unload pent-up frustrations and …

A Momentous Day: My Reasons Why I Support West Ham United

I shouldn’t support West Ham. I don’t have the generational and geographic pull many of our fans have. My family are from Limerick City in the west of Ireland, my mum and dad moved over to East London in the 1960’s, my army of cousins and uncles all supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Celtic but my Dad chose West Ham. Why? I have found myself asking that question a few times through the years, would it …

The off the field issues are becoming more apparent day by day and it seems that bit by bit…
