Big Sam’s hardy Hammers head across London to swanky Stamford Bridge looking to further fuel the unrest at the spoilt brat West London club. Under siege from disgruntled fans, Raffa the Gaffa’s leadership has failed to the Blues and will almost certainly end with a fruitless season’s toil and may even end without securing Champions league football for next year. In contrast, the Hammers have enjoyed an exciting season back in the top flight dishing out some decent beatings to QPR, Fulham and today’s overconfident hosts. Onwards and upwards for the Bubbles boys.
|Classy stuff alright!|
No doubt the opportunity to inflict the first double over Chelski for ten years will provide considerable incentive for the Hammers who, despite missing Noble, Nolan and Cole, will provide tough opposition for an inconsistent Chelski side. Soon to be homeless midfield ‘ace’ Frank Lampard will be seeking his 200th career strike and would love to celebrate against his former employers. Unfortunately, the chubby one may find that such stories are reserved for fairy tales and other bedtime stories.
|A Fairytale ending seems unlikely|
Meanwhile, Ireland’s top fleecer of the mathematically challenged, Paddy O’Power, has given odds of 10-1 against Joey O’Brien celebrating St Patrick’s today with a goal and the very attractive 500-1 against West Ham repeating the 1986 5-3 scoreline!
Either way, Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!!!
