Green day

Interesting interview with Robert Green in yesterday’s News of the World.

He reveals that at Norwich he used to throw up before games and that this season he’s been overcoming his fear by reading Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albion.

The NOTW writes: “The best-selling novel by Mitch Albom depicts a series of meetings between a dying teacher and a former student and the life lessons and wisdom that pass between them. A key message it conveys is about detaching yourself from experience in order to appreciate it more fully.”

Perhaps we could all do with some detachment from reality this season.

Green is also asked if David Gold and David Sullivan were responsible for improving results by lambasting the team in public and he diplomatically implies the lads ignore them.

"If you really think that, then that's great," was the response.

"The owners can say whatever they want. They've just bought their childhood club.

"I think what they want is what's best for West Ham United. I don't think they're doing their utmost to deliberately nark everyone off…

"For the owners to say whatever they want to say is fine. I personally don't take any notice of it. They air their views and they're welcome to them.

"While things are not 100 per cent on the pitch we don't have time to pay attention."
