One looks like an ugly troll and is the most reviled footballer on the face of this earth, and the other is the devil incarnate. So, missing out on Tevez and replacing him with Diouf is, in many ways wonderfully appropriate. The trouble is, Tevez is a genius and Diouf is just an out and out cnut!
Already one Hammers fan has posted on here that if Allardyce wants Diouf, then we should back his judgement; and I suspect that Hell's Hadji can "do a job" in the Championship. But, with respect, that is missing the point. This is a man who has literally spat at West Ham fans. This is a man who is hated and loathed up and down the land, with the Boleyn the epicentre of contempt. This is a man who represents the antithesis of every value our club has ever stood for!
God, the sooner we move to the OS the better! Animal though he is, I doubt even Diouf can gob the full distance of a running track!
