Only West Ham! A few minutes into the second half of today’s match at Wigan, it looked as though a miracle escape from relegation was on. We were 2-0 up and Birmingham were down by the same score – scores which, if maintained until the final whistle, would have given us at least a chance of avoiding the drop in next Sunday’s final match of the season. But no. Wigan pulled one back after being awarded a dubious free-kick, and then went on to level the score. The final quarter of the game was madness, end to end stuff with the two teams taking it in turns to miss great chances to score. Deep into added time, I thought Cole was going to win it, but he somehow managed to miss from inside the 6 yard box. Then Wigan went up the other end and won it themselves.

So it’s definitely Chumpionship football for next season. Hopefully with a new manager in charge and the hapless Grant consigned to the darkest pages of West Ham’s history.

The Dildo Dave’s have a big job on their hands now to steady the club’s finances. At least with most of the high earners’ contracts running out in the summer, that will make the task a bit easier. The likes of Upson, Dyer and Boa Morte will not be missed. Sadly, I also expect Parker & Green to depart and they will be sorely missed. Cole will leave as well I expect.

I hope some of our younger players such as Noble, Collison and Tomkins will stick around and give us a core to build a new side around. I also hope that Demba Ba will stay, and I wouldn’t mind if Piquionne stays too.

Going to be a tough season next year! (off the field too, with games against the likes of Millwall, Leeds and possibly Cardiff to come)
