Ive been prompted to post a new thread after seeing West Ham splash out a bundle of money over the last 6-7 months compared to our nil outlay at present.
Thats right West Ham, only back in the Premiership for 1 season after 2 years out. The same West Ham that was in so much debt when they went down they had to sell all the best players for peanuts compared to our spotless accounts which show no debt. The same West Ham that until only recently were getting crowds of 25,000 compared to our average of 35,000 over the last few years, the same West Ham that have only been in the top flight for 8 or 9 years out of the whole of the Premiership compared to our ever present status. The same West Ham that beat us twice last season quite comfortably as well despite having players who cost peanuts and are mostly from the lower leagues. The same West Ham who have young hungry and fit players who are prepared to run through a brick wall for the cause.
They have spent 7m on Ashton, 3m on Mears, 2m on Carlton Cole, Lee Bowyer for peanuts and have just had a 4m bid for Chhimbonda turned down. We on the other hand and have done absolutely bugger all despite having our worst season ever.
It beggars belief and Im starting to realise that this season coming will be one hell of a fight to stay in the division never mind improving on last season.
Im angry I really am yet the Chairman says that were heading in the right direction. I d hate to see us if we were heading in the wrong direction!
So comparing the 2 clubs we should be the ones spending money on new players and West Ham should be grateful they have survived in the Premiership and now start moving on to try and establish themselves as a regular top flight club. Instead they are showing all the ambition to want to do well and we are showing all the ambition you would expect when you have a Chairman who has done very little positive in his 30 year reign.
