Jaws and the Piranha: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat!”

The hills are alive with the sound of music!

As if the Von Trapp family had burst into song, so did Marko Arnautovic return from injury to put on another committed and dazzling display at home to Watford last week. He certainly showed what we had been missing for a few weeks and even inspired our front-runners to attack with more purpose.

Time to focus on the pitch not the boardroom

Another week and another week where activities away from the pitch have seen West Ham in the headlines. While our administrative issue with “doping control” seems rather trivial, it’s yet another stick to beat the club with. It also looks likely that Jose Fonte is set to move to the Chinese Super League with the club no doubt bracing itself for the inevitable backlash as a player that no one seems to have wanted moves on.

The Monkey and The Water Margin!

So much of my childhood was lost to dreams of other places and untouchable gains. The 1970s was a strange time to grow up…the 60’s had witnessed a cultural revolution and freedom of expression was the order of the day which butted up against convention and conservatism.

The Pied Piper and the fleeing rats!

“The evil in the world comes almost always from ignorance, and goodwill can cause as much damage as ill-will if it is not enlightened. People are more often good than bad, though in fact that is not the question. But they are more or less ignorant and this is what one calls vice or virtue, the most appalling vice being the ignorance that thinks it knows everything and which consequently authorises…
