As a Hammers fan of many years - back to the greats of Booby Moore, Trevor Brooking among many others I am indeed shocked by the display against Liverpool on Saturday.
Where was the boredom? I felt lost without it, like taking my clothes away. Are we to see the end of 0-0 draws or losing 1-0 in the final minute? Will we lose the excitement of the struggle to 'stay up' at the end of the season?
What has Uncle Sam done? What have the Porn Kings bestowed on us?
Attacking football from the start! It is too much for my dodgy heart. Bringing in immigrants - surely not popular in East London these day? But irritatingly they are scoring goals - what will this do to UKIP in Essex? Watch it Forage, this is your Achilles Heel.
So Liverpool limped back up North, with some reason, defeated by a fantastic team of potential Premiership winners.
It is no joke.
