All Over For Boa
It looks as if Luis may have played his last game for the club, with his contract expiring at the end of this season and his injury likely to keep him out until the summer. I am not going to be hypocritical here and pretend I am deeply upset by this news. The brutal fact is that Boa was never good enough to play for West Ham. Yes he was full of endeavour but that, I am afraid, does not compensate for a slow brain, blinkered eyesight and clumsy feet. I have never booed the guy and never would, but I have never rated him either. His record for the club is frankly appalling.
The big question I would like answered is whether his wages will now be paid by an insurance scheme. It was bad enough paying the guy to perform, at best, indifferently; the idea of shelling out £55k a week for him to share a treatment room with Beano is too sickening to contemplate. Knowing Boa, he will trip over, fall into Beano and set back Primadeano's recovery a further six months!
Still, as crap as he is, you have to admire the guy's optimism. I loved the comment, "I had many hopes this season, including the World Cup," he continued. "But this injury has made things very difficult for Carlos Queiroz to call me up for the final squad if we qualify." In truth Luis, not playing is probably your best hope of getting a late call up!
