West Ham vs Wigan Athletic: 25th August 2007 (Match Preview And Other Ramblings)

1. Apologies

This preview had to be abandoned due to jet lag. Sincere apologies to my worldwide legion of fans (both of you) but I promise to return with a top quality update for the match itself, containing much abuse of Dave Whelan.

2. In Brief

We win at their place. They win at our place. Marlon Harewood always scores. Ah.

3. A Point Of Interest

Wigan successfully converted more penalties in their last game than we did in our last Premiership season.

4. "I Wrote A Song For You......And It Was Called 'Yellow'"

Convicted Price Fixer Dave Whelan cannot attend today's game due to a number of reasons. His liver has apparently taken on several properties commonly associated with the lily, and his stomach has turned a nasty shade of yellow. The varmint.

Doctors are calling this "Cowardis Extremis".

It's either this or he's a bit skint having had to pay a large fine due to the fact that the Wigan rugby league club, of which he is owner, deliberately breached the league salary cap.

Remember Dave's "Campaign For Fairness"? Doctors are calling this "Hypocrisia Breathtakinium".

Still, at least he stood shoulder to shoulder with Sheffield United like he promised......

    What a shame. And there we were all ready to give him a big East End welcome!
