What is it about West Ham? Why does the club NEVER learn? Hasn't the premature retirement of Ashton taught us anything? Doesn't the log jam in the treatment room register at all? Brady proposed changing the name of the club to West Ham Olympic but West Ham Paralympics would be more appropriate!
But regardless of history, regardless of the absurd wages we are still paying Dyer to sit on his arse, we are now signing Ba on loan until the end of the season, agreeing to pay his wages whilst he "proves" his fitness, even though he wasn't fit enough to pass Stoke's test. But then, Pulis expects his players to run and run, to show commitment to the cause, to close, to run for the full ninety minutes. No such physical duress if you join West Ham eh?
One report suggests Ba will not be fit for 5 months, round about the time he is due to return to Germany. He joins us on Monday, in time to play on Wednesday if fit. But that is a huge if!
I tell you what, I would love to work for Dyno Rod in Newham. Sooner or later the club is going to need somebody to unblock the money they keep tipping down the drain!
