WHU's never-ending season
Interesting piece on West Ham's pre-season in the Guardian today. It reveals that if we are to win the Europa League from the first qualifying round, which no team has ever done, West Ham will have to play an astounding 23 matches. There's a real danger of WHU getting into relegation trouble if that happens so the squad still needs more players. And we're so desperate for bodies that even Mauro Zarate — who fell out with Big Sam, Harry Redknapp and Chris Ramsey last season— has been welcomed back into the squad. Looks likes it will be mainly the kids and those returning from injury playing against the Andorrans, though the prices of £10 and £5 for kids are reasonable for the home leg. So here we go… who needs a close season anyway? Click on the link too read the full piece.
