|Curb your enthusiasm!
West ham's season continues to peter out with the possibility of a front door entrance to Europe long gone. Stranded in mid table without any remaining purpose, the team have struggled to find the fire that is needed in order to get anything out of fixtures against sides caught up in the relegation mix.
Burnley visit the Boleyn ground today looking to get points that might propel them away from second bottom of the table. Surprisingly, after a series of insipid displays, the game is a sell out.
However, the fans enthusiasm has not been matched by the players, with a number of potential absentees due to life threatening injuries such as an "acute attack of being really bored", "grade 3 cudnt b arsed" and most worryingly an outbreak of "Chronically fatigued of it" syndrome. The players involved have not been named but expect some big name absenteeism today! Bad news for QPR, Sunderland, Hull City and Leicester.
On the positive front, last week's draw against the Queens and Park Rangers was achieved without a single disciplinary caution whilst our nearest rivals in the fair play league - today's visitors Burnley picked up two yellow cards. With the ratings soon to end, the Hammers look set to stay top as long as they dont get pulled into any disciplinary bloodbaths. Perhaps the recent on-field indifference is for a good reason?
Otherwise, Hammers fans are hoping to get a further viewing of Reece Burke and maybe even a look at Diego Poyet in midfield?
