Dear God, I've only just discovered the result because of my odyssey to find Mido. Okay so there were nine changes, okay we had a keeper with his nose buried in a book all game, okay we had another Academy dud sent off, but Aldershot at home? Really?
Don't give me this "chance to focus on the league" shite. What the hell was Doctor Evil up to exactly? The team desperately needed a morale boosting home victory and instead, we go into our next home home with a record of played three, lost two, won none and shamed by an early exit in the League Cup. Remember how we fared under Avram when there was a pot at stake? Oh for that attitude now!
My son paid a small fortune to take his girlfriend to the game. At no point was it marketed as a reserve game that didn't matter! He should be reimbursed, as should every Hammers fan that went there that night. Perhaps Parker could donate his August salary as a final goodbye!
