    Stranger things have been known
    To happen
    The parting of the Red Sea
    Now who would have thought it?
    Man on the moon
    Everest conquered
    Concorde crossing
    In record time
    Tomorrow West Ham
    Face the […]

    When a player dominates a game
    to the extent
    that no other could be considered extant….

    When a player cruises
    beyond bruises
    and delivers shock and awe…

    and a four purloined score…

    how then
    to ackno […]

    Hold their hand, as today is that day.
    Give them a hug, it can go a long way.
    Give them your time, lend them an ear.
    Because today is that time of year.
    Be there to listen, to take in every word.
    35 years on, […]

    No we’re not in the land
    Of glam rock, fashion
    Crimes against humanity
    Flared trousers, denim
    And ridiculous platform
    Shoes that defied
    Imagination and belief
    This is not 1975 again
    The FA Cup in a […]

    No flags or banners will fly on the Kop tonight.

    On a big European night, such an unusual sight.

    The Club have raised ticket prices without a care.

    So, no banners big or small, waved high in the […]

    It could be the night of nights
    But probably won’t be
    When push comes to a shove
    West Ham
    Germany calling
    Your country needs you
    To be present and correct
    Possibly a match too far
    Bayern Leverkusen […]

    ‘Be quiet; the weather’s on the night news.’
    Stephen Malkmus, Watery, Domestic

    Cirrus never whispers, or was that Texas?
    What you really meant was cumulonimbus
    with deep grey future rain around its […]

    You take ten points off.
    You give four points back.
    Off, back, off, back,
    You hang ’em on a rack.
    You do the Hokey Cokey,
    And you turn around,
    Is that what it’s all about?

    You take two more off. […]

    Joe Kinnear always in the know
    Farewell to the show
    To the football pitch
    Never kitsch
    Joe Kinnear
    Where the White Hart Lane
    Purists were in mutual appreciation
    Of his valuable sense of
    Morality which […]

    Of footy in the 60’/ 70’S, I’ve been looking back.
    Nobody took much notice of ‘the man in black’
    Those were the greatest days it has to be said.
    They carried a notebook and cards yellow and red.

    W […]

    Seven goal thriller
    At St James Park
    Oh no through closed eyes
    Another catastrophe
    Leaks through the sieve
    Dripping sombrely
    Through porous holes
    Of West Ham’s fondest
    Hopes of another European
    Campaign […]

    When was the last time England really got me excited?
    I forget
    Who was the last England manager that I really, really trusted to lead our troops?
    I forget
    Why was it that Lampard, Gerard, Scholes didn’t g […]

    how did we do it how did we survive
    what did we do …before 5 Live ?*

    It’s annoying… but Keiron from Rochdale was right;
    a 2-1 loss to the boys from the Fylde
    and our hopes of survival
    were put out of sight.
    They say it’s the size of the fight in the dog,
    Not the size of the d […]

    So here’s the deal
    Football’s Harlem Globetrotters

    Across football’s
    Kaleidoscope of vivid
    Colours

    Hi Crispin. Chris Sutton on the radio has gone for a Chelsea v Coventry final. As we know anything can happen in the Cup, and I reckon we can go to the final.
    We’re still in with a chance of the play offs too, so […]

    Hey Kev

    Let the masses drool over their odds on City v Unted Final, but who knows how pressure can hit.

    Cov and Chels will be rightly labelled as having no chance..but hey …stranger things have happened..

    The Sky Blues were the underdogs
    not given much of a chance,
    up against Wolves of the Premier
    who would surely lead them a merry dance.
    But the City had other ideas
    a team that just never gives up,
    even […]
