A good time to be facing West Ham…

West Ham are always a good team to play if you have an unenviable run to end. Wigan were desperate to win their first home game of the season on Saturday and duly did so against the Irons. Similarly Arsenal's Giroud had yet to score for the Gunners in the league until he came to Upton Park. And of course Fernando Torres was having a terrible run at Chelsea before notching his first goal against West Ham during our relegation season. The last two goals James Beattie scored in the Premier League were for Stoke against West Ham. And I remember an underperforming Nick Barmby coming to West Ham with Everton and scoring a hat-trick and propelling himself back into the England squad. Still, that's enough tales of horror for Halloween night...
