The Morning After And The Day Before - A Deathly Hush
This morning feels like a scene from an old western. The town's top gunslinger lies dead in the street. Tumbleweed blows across the set. A buzzard flies overhead, circling as West Ham players cower like frightened Mexicans beneath boarded up windows. A harmonica wails out the tune of "Bubbles". Two bankers, Gold and Sullivan, hastily pack their belongings in the hotel, desperate to head on out when the next stage coach arrives - if it ever arrives. Mayor Duxbury is nowhere to be seen. Sheriff Zola and Deputy Clarke look frightened and desperate; set to hand in their badges at any moment. The wanted posters - Adriano, Toni, Balotelli - are yellow and torn, flapping in the wind.
And in the distance is the thunder of hooves. The Bolton gang are riding into town looking for a scrap!
