Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs of being 3,473 Miles from Upton Park and West Ham United (Aug 2011 - May 2016)
Why did you put a picture Avram right in the middle of the card, I guess he still comes back to haunt us
That's not Avram, surely you remember that he's much more horrible looking than anyone on my post. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a popular Halloween Costume down Millwall way ! No, I was just trying to portray, how scarey the second half against Leicester was. Luckily we avoided the Hammer Horror ending, some of us feared.
I used to have a book on Horror movies that had that image on the cover. My favourite still in the book was of a typical 50's starlet having her brain sucked out of her head by some all powerful, amorphous blob of an alien being. Bit like following your team through "fick an' fin"I reckon the current gaffer could get into the book as well as Uncle Avram.
John Lyall would've made a good Van Helsing, I reckon.
Wotchit Filthy, I'll have nothing said against John Lyall, unless it's Ouija Board from Ron Greenwood. As for the gaffer I reckon it's Alf Tupper if we go up and Fat Sam ( a la Bugsy Malone) if we don't.
van Helsing's the Hero , I think, to the count's evil. Also quite dashing! So compliments only to Mt Lyall, one of football's (few) good guys. I think he'll be Alf Tupper, but could run to fat next year when the battering rams fail to pick the locks.
All we need right now Filthy is "Tough of The Track", I'll worry about the First Division when we get back there. Apologies for an misunderstanding re John Lyall, I guess I got Van Hesling confused with an overweight , cantankerous, bald Irish singer songwriter - my mistake !
The fat irishman's in the book, page 96, in the "creatures from the Deep with nasal whines" section.
