So tell me, is the head of the BBC a Spurs fan or something? Hammers fans were always moaning whilst we were in the Prem that Match of the Day failed to show enough highlights from our games and now, if you want hard evidence of the BBC bias against the Irons, just watch the edited highlights of the game against Bristol City below!
Now, when watching, keep in mind that Allardyce termed our performance "exceptional" and some fans have claimed on here that the performance was good, we were simply very unlucky. Given that, can anybody explain why the edit has cut out all the great saves made by David James on the night? I can see one good save by Green and a desperate clearance by Faye to prevent Bristol City scoring from the rebound, but apart from Nolan firing a shot, from outside of the box, straight into the bollocks of James, I can't see a save of note from the former Hammers and England stopper.
It's funny too that we don't get to the byline to cross but pump it in from positions between their penalty box and the half way line, making it so easy for the Robins to defend. In fact, I can't see one chance created inside the box, apart from a weak Piquionne header straight at James. Anybody would think, watching these highlights, that we were crap on the night and that Bristol City, bottom of the table, might have pinched it!
That, of course, is a ludicrous idea. This is patent BBC bias. In fact, maybe it is racism because James is black and all his best moments in the game have so obviously been edited out!
Write to your MPs! Demand the head of the Director General! This bias must end and end now! We want to see brilliant play when we look at the highlights of a West Ham game, not dross that suggests that we were truly crap on the night!
