Amid a hectic day in the office, with everyone checking their routes home for safety reasons, I came across this inspiring picture taken on Green Street today. Much is made of the difference between the East End in the days of Bobby Moore et al and today, and yes it is vastly different, but the spirit is clearly still there.
This image shows local residents have taken to the street to literally protect their businesses from any potential rioters. Absolutely brilliant.
Seeing this image, the decision to postpone tonight’s League Cup tie is clearly the best for everyone. Let’s let the idiots have their fun and then get back to the task of watching West Ham return to winning ways.
I’m expecting to see an image soon of the David’s outside the front of the Boleyn Ground with over-sized dildo-bats in hand. Ready for action. Gold will probably be in disguise though, predictably as some sort of porn Dracula. Sullivan will be, as ever, dressed as some sort of faux Russian militant.
Rumour is that riots are also scheduled for 4.00pm at the Brittania Stadium, Stoke, as supporter’s heard that the club might be in talks with Matthew ‘Celebrity’ Upson…
