The drab end of season fare that Hammers fans are enduring was brightened up by the contributions of young Reece Burke last weekend signalling that with little else left to this season West Ham may as well give the yoof a chance.
For Hammers fans, the hiatus has provided an opportunity to explore the other regions of their existence that sometimes get relegated to second place in our energies.
For the VERYWESTHAM crew this has resulted in a return to the musical mayhem of Punk rock, with chief blogger DM maintaining the proud Hammers tradition of punk rocking with Dublin's finest Sonic buzzsaw bashers The Hounds in the annual Songs of Social Protest conference.
Expect Teenage Kicks, Pretty Vacant and Smells Like Teen Spirit as the Hammers faithful bring musical mayhem to the Main Auditorium at the University of Limericks GEMS tomorrow.
Will they Play it again Sam?
