A trip to East Lancashire is next up for West Ham after the rather uninspiring win against Swansea last time out.

Idle Thoughts: The 1920’s

In my last ‘idle thoughts’ musings, I wrote of the fascination of old football memorabilia; programmes, handbooks, newspaper articles which could waft you back through the generations and provide you with a glimpse of life as it was in the days of our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers.

McCann was perhaps unfortunate to have been vying for a midfield position with the likes of Frank Lampard, Michael Carrick and Joe Cole so it’s no surprise the Ulsterman found …
