Huth Stokes The Fires Of Unrest At Upton Park
So Stoke have done what we did at around about this time last season, beat Villa on a Monday night with a late, late winner to record a crucial first victory. It leaves us rock bottom, the only club in the entire league without a point.
You can bet your life that the Britannia will be rocking now when we show up. Back to back wins would do very nicely, thank you very much, and our weakness down the flanks and vulnerability at set pieces will have Pulis rubbing his hands together in anticipation. Do you fancy Upson, Ben Haim and Green to withstand the aerial bombardment that we are sure to be subjected to?
Of course, General Avram looks unlikely to be there. It seems that archaic religious nonsense is more important to him than doing the job he is paid to do. Only at West Ham! Have you EVER heard of a Premiership manager absenting himself from a game because of his religious beliefs? It would be a joke if it was in any way funny!
I shouldn't think Yom Kippur will stand in the way of Levy and his Spurs team! How ironic, given all the Jewish taunts at Tottenham from our fans, that we should find ourselves managerless for a key game because of a Jewish holiday.
What is Yom Kippur? Well according to Jewish tradition, God inscribes each person's fate for the coming year into a book. Well, if we lose at Stoke, Ladbrokes will install us as nailed on favourites for the drop in their book, that's for sure! And I suspect Avram's fate may be signed and sealed too. Never mind Yom Kippur, he will be smoked bloody herring by Christmas as we seek yet another Messiah to nail to our crossed hammers!
