Blinkered And Stupid Fans Diss' Hammers Legend's Son Ahead Of Potential Move

News that David Martin, son of Hammers legend Alvin Martin, might be signed by West Ham as back up keeper has been greeted with 'shock horror' by a certain section of fans, why? Because he currently plays for Millwall, his contract is about to expire and he is available to make the move across the City to the London Stadium on a free transfer, so why on earth could there be an issue?

OK back in the day there have been some unsavoury incidents between both sets of fans, but most of those involved are pensioners now, their bodies might still be willing, but their arthritis rules the day! Anyway, what about Teddy Sheringham? did he not play for Millwall before embarking on a really great career which encompassed playing for West Ham United?

Why should there be a difference between Sheringham and Martin? God's sake's Sheringham played for Tottenham after all! The only reason for disrespecting Alvin Martin and his son in this way can surely be pure ignorance, allied to their lack of knowledge regarding Hammers history. If they look a few things up, or ask someone who has half a brain, they will find out that Alvin Martin played the latter half of his career at West Ham needing a cortisone before every fixture, which damn near crippled him and left him unable to be anywhere near as mobile than he would have been had he not taken the repeated doses of the pain killer for such a long period.

Better to have been a true Hammer warrior as Alvin Martin was. We should all be pleased to see the son of any top Hammer signing for us.

Ello old chum long time no hear. Hows NZ? I agree it's utter nonsense. The poor boy wants to step from the turd pile to a big club and he's getting stick?

Great to see you’re still contributing massively and as ever in good humour. NZ is going into winter now and with no football season to warm it up it’s not the place to be. I’m back off to England the week after next to stay at my brother’s sadly our Mum passed away at the beginning of this week. At her age it will be a celebration of a long life well lived and a chance to see the family.
