Having secured their status in the top flight for next season, Big Sam’s boys are planning to cut loose at the Boleyn today by providing a rare glimpse of their more flamboyant side.
All of this will come as further bad news for ex-Hammers boss Alan Pardew who must be regretting signing up for a further twenty gazillion years as manager of the moody magpies. Having been thumped 6-0 in their last match, his troops arrive at Upton Park well primed for further sadistic frolics.
Fans can expect to see all manner of audacious flicks, ambitious over head kicks and storming breaks from defence. Rumours abound that Big Sam has spent all week feeding his troops on old footage of Hammers legends doing their legendary stuff.
Perhaps they might start with a Trevor Sinclair-esqe overhead kick?
And follow that up with a Vaz Te overhead special, maybe from the man himself?
And then top it off with 'that' goal......???
Take a bow son!
