Just like ’66
Great to see three Hammers on the pitch in the second half of Spain v England last Wednesday night. Robert Green as custodian, Matthew Upson at the back and for the last 15 minutes Carlton Cole.
Beckham looked relieved to have found another world class player on the pitch with the arrival of Carlton, threading throgh a great ball for Cole to round the keeper and have his shot cleared off the line. Carlton we never doubted you — much.
OK, we lost but now Capello realises the full value of three Hammers on the pitch we will surely win the World Cup. Were you watching Craig Bellamy?
