Where are you Tottenham and Manchester City? (Ashes asks!)
A terrific afternoon for the Hammers but not so good for the wannabees, Citeh and Spuds. Ha Ha! The look of horror on Harry's Jowly Face said it all. He thought that a dodgy penalty, and Keane arrogantly placing the ball IN FRONT of the penalty spot, were going to be enough to get them home. His players thought it was enough. They thought they were going to rocket into 7th place. They thought they were too good for their Chelsea-beating boots. Ha Ha! They should have asked the mighty, mighty Hammers how hard it is to beat Blackburn on their dung heap. Just a couple of yellow cards (which Palacios can't appeal) and Bob's your uncle: McCarthy and Oojier sent them packing with the help of Gomes. Justly. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch! (sorry for laying on the schadenfreude so thick mates, but ... no, wait a minute, NOT sorry).
Similar story at the Emirates. Another team that was supposed to be "going places". A team so good that the Putter-Nutter said, "I'd be crazy to turn down the offer to be part of something so big". A team that cannot score away from home! How much did they pay for Ribena? He has only scored once in 2009 - and that was for Brazil!
On this day, two young Academy products, one just turned twenty the other nineteen, showed anybody who cared to watch (not that Citeh and Spuds think we're worth watching) how it is done: with spirit, with tenacity, with skill, with style, with grace, with FUN.
THANK YOU HAMMERS FOR MAKING MY DAY!!!
