Official Site Plays Cruel Joke On Fans
We are used to the anodyne content of the OS and grew aware that under Duxbury, the bloody site should have been renamed Pravda, such was the level of state control over what was published...but even the Grand Puppet Master stopped short of playing cruel jokes on the loyal West Ham fan base! Now the Official Site has sunk to new lows.
Turning to News Now, my heart skipped a beat as I read the OS headline, "Spector a Reading Star"! My God, he's gone I thought, and to the club just down the road from where I now live! But opening the article, I found it was all a ruse. It turns out that by Reading Star, they mean that, unlike a sizable section of the fan base, Spector can...well read!
Is that what he was doing all season? Focusing on the advertising hoardings, sounding out his letters, and trying to work out what that very odd word on his shirt said? Is that why he missed so many tackles, headed the ball straight up in the air, played opponents on side, gave away possession...did he let players drift past him so he could sound out the letters on the back of their shirts as he followed in their wake? "L-E-E Lee! M-A-L-O-U-D-A Malouda! V-A-L-E-N-C-I-A Valencia!"
It all makes sense now! In his mind, he wasn't playing a game of Premiership Football, he was on the set of Sesame Street! Today's game is brought to you by the letters Zee, O, L and A and the number 18! Oops and the number 1 for West Ham and the number 3 for Bolton, Wolves and Fulham!
No wonder he was playing like a muppet!
