There were truly remarkable scenes in the final 15 minutes of the upper-mid table clash between West Ham and Liverpool that took place yesterday in the mid to late afternoon. The game was progressing towards a predictable victory for the vastly superior home side until proceedings were suddenly turned on their head by a disturbing incident involving Hammer’s midfielder Momo Diame and an inexplicable injury to his left hamstring. Some observers reported possibly seeing a blow dart flying through the air before seeming to lodge in the misfortunate player’s thigh.

Meanwhile Joe Cole and Glen Johnson were inconsolable after their desperate errors of judgement and were said to be terrified at the prospect of meeting a furious Tony Carr who is said to have remarked " I taught these lads how to play proper footie with the expectation that these abilities would be used in a constructive and sensible manner". It seems those who leave West Ham are doomed to wander aimlessly thereafter...
Finally, geeky types can brace themselves for a right stonker of a question in future pub quizzes enquiring “when did three West Ham players score own goals in one match” - surely one for the record books?
