Roversider Posted December 11, 2010 Share Posted December 11, 2010 Call me a bitter old git but I am actually enjoying the problems at Upton Park (or the Anne Boleyn or whatever it is). I have a number of reasons. Firstly go back to the season with the Tevez affair. The game at Ewood was critical to their survival and started a run which kept them up, that victory was the most important result of the season. Tevez should never have been playing after all the unbelievable shady dealings about his registration. The linesman managed to make three appalling decisions, first one allowing a goal that never crossed the line which was blocked by Tevez in an offside position! Then he gave them a penalty that never was and finally, to add insult to injury spots a non-existent elbow from Bentley and he is sent off. Given how bent West Ham were at the time you do have to consider the benefits of those decisions to their then owners. Anyway that saw Sheffield United go down instead of them, a complete travesty. Secondly their owners, Gold I can tolerate but Sullivan? The man dresses like a camp member of the KGB. Remember his insulting comments about Rovers during the Savage transfer? He also abused the previous owners about paying over the odds for players in terms of transfer prices and wages. Thank heavens he is such a buffoon as to sanction signing the unfit, overweight Benni McCarthy. Thirdly they are from London. Fourthly, they are a very poor side. And finally, they play in Claret and Blue, need I say more. I hoped they would go down sooner but they are working very hard this season to be relegated, long may it continue.
