|Ooooogh! Careful Kevvy Wevvy...|
Key to success will be the capacity of the team to engage in positive attacking football (AKA 'The West Ham Way'), be respectful of match officials (no matter how stoopid / blind / biased / guilty of being a merchant banker etc etc), and avoid yellow and red cards. A source close to Upton Park revealed that Sam is using old video footage of Hammers legends to help the current squad adjust to the required style.
With Premiership safety assured, the team can fully indulge these needs and have been practising a new 'fair-play-friendly' style that may lead to some embarrassing defeats, but that will score highly on the UEFA ratings!
Anything for a European trip....and, even better for fans, the first round of the Europa league is at the beginning of July!
