|Let's hope there aren't too many tedious goal stoppages!|
Are you ready for a flashbulb moment?....Hardly likely today folks with a hopelessly midtable Hammers facing the desperate Foxes we can expect a turgid affair. With the need to avoid yellow and red cards, whilst treating the referee with absolute politeness (not easy for an away side where somebody needs to speak against the baying home horde!), along with the uncertainty over Big Sam's future (yes - we are suggesting that players try harder to avoid injuries when they know that they could be looking for a new club in the Summer), we needn't expect blood and guts from our lot.
And then there's the Foxes recent good run of form where their results have not done their performances justice. They deserve a lucky break, we got ours against Slumberland last time out.
Then again, fortune favours the errrrrrrrr...no, not brave, actually its usually the side not in relegation trouble. In contrast, those down in the danger zone always seem to attract calamitous bad luck (as Hammers fans know only to well from previous campaigns). In a classic example of such ill-fortune, Leicester lost our 4-3 to a soft goal and a poor penalty against Spurs.
With the Europa League issue still alive one suspects that many Hammers fans will be more interested in the card count than the score!
