Rarely has it been so hard to find something to write about West Ham. There are no current transfer rumours, the tactics to be employed in the up coming season are hardly in question, and we still want to move to the Olympic Stadium, but there's no update on our bid.
It's the big kick off on Saturday and somehow the buzz is missing. Is it post Olympics torpor? Or is it a West Ham thing? We know what we are going to get and, like school dinners, we know we are not going to enjoy it very much.
I can't remember feeling so apathetic about the approach of a new season. It doesn't help that I am at Lords on Saturday, although I lost interest in the cricket too during the Olympics and only picked up on the Pietersen texting scandal today.
Perhaps the Olympics has put everything into perspective. Football has lost touch with real sport.
