3. Familiar fragilities at right full back & defensive midfield. Not much to say here, other than expect to see upgrades in both positions in the transfer window.
Thought DM was a strong point. G Lo actually adds an offensive dimension to that line that we haven’t had for a LONG time. I’m surprised he plays there, and I’m not sure of his defensive capabilities, but not much we’re needed against the Spam. Sissoko was solid IMO.

There's a fair chance we won't ever play West Ham United again if they get relegated

Could easily go bust and rebrand as London United or similar
Would anyone really want that though?
Many Spurs fans might say they want to see West Ham, Woolwich and Chelsea to go belly up, but can you imagine how boring the game would be without the London rivalries?
Lets be honest it's already sterile and corporate since those cunts at sky got their hands on it.
It's a delicate balance between retaining the atmosphere and the rivalry but without the running street battles and I think its all gone far too prawn sandwichy and middle class now.

For those doubting I fucking hate West Ham, I was at the league cup game where they arrived midday and smashed up the pub with only a few locals in it, I think it was the Cockerel? but its long closed now.
Seven Sisters was like a warzone, a flare missed my brothers face by inches.
Running battles all around even at Waterloo and on the train into London, if memory serves they were in the Championship at the time so it was full on.
So I have every reason to hate that club.

But you've gotta think without those rivalries the football would be dead.

Sorry if that's an unpopular opinion on here, but its the truth. We live for those rivalries. And while obviously Woolwich and Chelsea are much higher on the pecking order than West Ham. And it is their cup final despite them claiming it isn't. Anyone that claims its just another game is lying.

Let's be honest with ourselves its a cut above the likes of Southampton and Brighton isn't it?

I would like to see them go down and they would no doubt come back at some point, as they've always been a bit of a yoyo club.

No I want them to be relegated but the other teams down there are all losing as well.
