A desperate Slaven Bilic, West Ham's brilliant Manager who has placed the Hammers near the top of the Premier League, has recently found the ghost of Big Sam Allardyce haunting his team.
Bilic is certain that Sam, now ploughing hard at his new club Sunderland, has sent out sound waves directed at West Ham bringing back what Sam always thought were 'the good old days' of 0-0 draws.
The Irons are following Sam's directive's of drawing 0-0 at every opportunity and are beginning to sink towards Sunderland in the Premier League.
Slaven, who needs to keep West Ham in the Premier League for the great switch to the Olympic Stadium next season, is desperate for goals but those spells drifting down from the North East are irresistible.
Not even Lewis Carroll, amazingly uninjured for several games in a row, has been able to break the spell.
