Will we ever score away?
Interesting stat from the BBC preview of today's game: "Every one of the other 159 teams in the top seven divisions in England scored more away goals than West Ham last season." The only time we scored twice away last season was at QPR. We're now in the bottom three and heading to White Hart Lane where we hardly ever win, and Jermain Defoe is certain to score. All of which makes me feel that, football being football, Modibo Maiga will get a hat-trick and we'll beat them, to quote Micharl Palin, "8 bloody 1!". Nurse, the screens.
