Meet the new boss, same as the old boss?

Avram Grant’s personal email to fans has a familiar ring to it.

Back in the 1980s when John Lyall got a little too comfortable in the West Ham hot seat, we used to regularly lose to Aston Villa on the opening day and he’d come out with bumpf like, “Well, we lost 4-0 but we learned a lot.”

And this is what Avram says after Saturday: “We learned a lot and there are some obvious changes to make… When you play away from home, anything can happen and we didn't want to lose this game… We will learn and be much, much better during the season.

Please, couldn’t we learn a little less and just win more matches?
