West Ham Yesterday
What can you say about that result? Over the years as a West Ham fan I've seen it all. Highs, lows and the lows far out way the highs. But it's my team, you only ever have one team regardless of how they play. Support a team from where you come from, none of this glory hunting bollocks that seems so prevalent today.
Not cheap anymore, two tickets yesterday for my old man and I set me back a good few quid. But what a result against the current champions. Yes we rode our luck, as any team would do against a side that has class running through it as City do. But we thoroughly warranted the win, what a cracking atmosphere. To many times over the last ten years the stadium has been dead, but not against the mancs. The last ten minutes my heart was banging, your dared not look at times as City poured forward in droves.
The final whistle and the stadium erupted and the best rendition of "Bubbles" I've heard in donkeys years. Looking at my old man, arms aloft belting it out made the hairs on my neck stand up. Sixty seven years old and a look of utter elation on his face. Walking him back to his motor after the match he looked me in the face and said...."Only thing is kid we have handed the title to Chelsea with today's win, so Sam out in my opinion". Silly old fucker, only he could come out with that. Should have him as a pundit on Sky Sports.
What's changed this season ? Easy one this, we have strikers who can score goals. Last year we were dependent on the mid field for those, what with Carroll being perennially injured. Champions League football next season, dare to dream. Us at the Nou Camp? I doubt that very much indeed, we have Stoke away up next and that is always a tough place to go. I'll just take these small victories and savor every moment.
At present it's nice to be able to get excited about my side, been a long time since that has happened.
