The story of West Ham’s season is like a storyline out of hit Sky One football drama ‘Dream Team’. The drama on the pitch came to a dramatic end on Sunday with a defeat at Wigan which confirmed their relegation. The hammers have been pretty rubbish all season and I feel they truly deserve to go down. They had one good player but the rest really need to take a long look at themselves, as they let the club and the fans down. The likes of Keane, Bridge, Upson and Boa Morte have not pulled their weight. In true West Ham fashion they gave their loyal fans hope by leading 2-0 at Wigan at half time looking like the great escape was on. Then the nerves kicked in and they went down 3-2. To top that the West Ham board, David Gold, David Sullivan & The Apprentice star, Karren Brady then swiftly sacked manager Avram Grant using a spare room at the JJB Stadium. The action didn’t stop there, at the end of season dinner, not so much a party; West Ham found themselves making the news again for all the wrong reasons. A fight broke out after a livid supporter confronted a player, then as it does in the east-end ‘it all kicked off’! The question now is what’s next at Upton Park? The last game is against Sunderland on Sunday and it may well have a very nasty atmosphere around it. The fans will be angry and disappointed after a disaster of a season, so the players and board will be in for a lot of stick. It will be the last time they see Scott Parker in a West Ham shirt so he will get a good send-off. But as the final whistle blows, they will all know they’re once again a Championship team. Looking to next season though, there is a bright side. They will play Millwall, Leeds & Cardiff City so queue 12pm Sunday kick-offs and a massive amount of police!
