In a transformation as stark as that which took young Robert Johnson, a previously unremarkable musician, who allegedly sold his soul to the Devil at the crossroads and reappeared as a stunningly gifted bluesman who created the very foundations of modern music.
The similarity is so stark that some conspiracy-prone (i.e. bored) footie fans have started to ask questions as to whether young Glen Johnson may have sold his soul for a measure of fame that was previously unthinkable. In the case of the Mississippi bluesman, Robert Johnson is said to have admitted to his devilish deal with Lucifer before being poisoned by the jealous husband of one of his many lovers!

Recent evidence also points to seriously Satanic goings on as match referee for last weeks bizarre encounter with the Hammers was clearly possessed by something evil as he awarded a whopping two penalties to Johnson's Liverpool - the second a particularly ghoulish error that stank of the diabolic.
Either way, Sam's angelic Hammers will undoubtedly wish Johnson well as he finally realises the massive potential that was evident back as far as his time in the Hammers academy.
Well done Glen - any chance you'd return for another spell?
