Poor Unloved Upson
Has ever a player had so few fans? Poor old Matty may be about to wave his mates off on a World Cup adventure, before skulking off home to wonder where it all went wrong; and nobody seems to have a kind word to say for him.
I ran an article yesterday on the injustice of Carragher and King being allowed back into the squad, and NOBODY put in a kind word for Matty. Where were the West Ham fans lining up in support of the club's (embarrassed cough) captain? Carragher cheated us out of the FA Cup but West Ham fans still bite their tongues rather than voice support for Upson. King plays for hated rivals Tottenham, but not a word has been spoken in defence of England's Mr Dependable Matty Upson as he faces crushing heart break.
Where's David Sullivan? He has an opinion on everything else so why hasn't he come out and pledged his support for the (polite cough) rock of our defence? Surely he could have spoken up? Let's face it, if Upson went to South Africa and had a good World Cup, his value would rise.
Indeed, never mind West Ham fans or people connected with the club, Upson has been linked with both Tottenham and Liverpool, and none of their fans seem to rate the guy either. He's useless according to the fans of the clubs he seems most likely to join! Don't expect a great welcoming party if you go Matty!
Where did it all go wrong Matty? Well if you put yourself into cruise control, pacing yourself for the World Cup at the end of the season, it is desperately difficult to change gear in the final third of the season. Poor old Matty will be standing at the Easyjet check in desk, demanding to be allowed on the plane. "What do you mean I've turned up late? But that was playing for West Ham, that doesn't count! Look, I earn more than almost every other player at the World Cup, perhaps I could make it worth your while. The plane hasn't left yet has it?"
Poor old Matty. Poor, poor, old Matty. Poor, poor, rich, old Matty. But don't worry Matty, over in South Africa, all the crocodiles have heard about your plight and are crying!
