Well done Avram for acknowledging that our heroic boys have earned a fully deserved three days off after that epic game against West Brom. Dear God, they played for a whole 45 minutes and watched West Brom players drift past them for the other 45! The poor sods must be physically exhausted and emotionally shot to pieces!
There are echoes here of the break the players were given by Zola after the Stoke game. The Italian buggered off back to Sardinia to recharge his batteries and the players were excused from duties until the middle of the week. I suppose it worked then - in the sense that we survived thanks to the incompetence of Burnley and Hull - so maybe the powers that be have decided to give it another go.
I would have thought some training sessions dedicated to defending set pieces and tracking midfield runners might have been in order. But what do I know?
I wish I could perform well for half my working day and earn the next three days off as a reward. I'm in the wrong bloody job! When West Ham eventually get around to sacking Avram, I'm making a case for him to be employed as my Managing Director!
