Now this is a puzzler and I`m not sure it`ll end anywhere but you never know when it comes to those who run our game.

Nestling amongst the plethora of articles on the internet, is one that expresses a touch of shock, horror from West Ham United relating to our defeat at the KC Stadium.

West Ham, as you are well aware, are looking relegation bound and they`re a trifle miffed that Roy Hodgson openly admitted he`d played an under-strength side against Hull.

We, as you are all aware, lost and Hull are now level on points with West Ham with one of the two looking straight through the trap door.

The article carries quotes from a West Ham insider, quotes that read,

“We are checking the rules.”

“Roy Hodgson said on Match of the Day he rested players as they had a lot of games coming up starting with Wolfsburg this week. Hull got very lucky with Fulham fielding a very weak side as they play Wolfsburg on Thursday.”

“Let`s hope they beat Wolfsburg and stay in the competition and do the same for us when we play them!”


Would it be churlish to tell this insider that our second string would beat their first eleven the way they are currently playing?

  • well they can certainly find out if we continue in europe… but roy had some really good quotes in his defence… you can’t expect a club to play the number of games that we’ve played with 11 players… the player missing the most was danny murphy, as we had limited attacking impetus in the middle of the park… i think when danny’s not available, either gera or dempsey needs to start as central midfield to give us more creativity…

  • also, maybe if they just won some games they wouldn’t have to be concerned with who we start against hull… just saying…

  • I completely understand them being a little PO’d, as even many Fulham supporters were a little annoyed, but that’s life. I’ve learned not to second-guess Roy. Besides, given our poor form versus West Ham over recent years, they have little to worry about when we meet in May.

  • Additionally, I think it’s ridiculous that a club can be questioned regarding how they approach League matches. I thought it was ridiculous when Wolves got taken to task for their team selection at OT; a move, as it turned out, helped them secure a victory in the following match against Burnley, so who is anyone to question McCarthy when the decision obviously paid dividends. Unless you’re a big club, you have to pick your battles, and Roy chose Wolfsburg. Get over it. For what it’s worth, I think Burnley is a little PO’d, also.

  • like woody say if westham won some games it would not matter what other teams did and thats the truth me thinks they should put there own house in order before they worry about ours me
