Did Irons Roll Over For Premier League?

West Ham United's decision to agree to the rescheduling of the game against Manchester City that had to be postponed by storm Ciarra during the so called winter break has had many fans outraged by the club's apparent acquiescence to the 'powers that be' by allowing the game to be played on the Wednesday the 19th of February, a clear 72 Hours before either team should have been officially playing according to the original remit from the FA, the Premier League and F.I.F.A.

It is not as if the club owe the FA any favours, time and again in the past, West Ham have ended up losing key players through injury whilst on international duty, and have been on the wrong end of legal decisions, with 'Tevezgate' being particularly galling!

Attending the replay is going to be really difficult for the Hammers travelling faithful, despite the club's offer of free transport from Stratford, it doesn't matter that much for the City fans who don't have to travel, with many Hammers fans eventually being unable to attend because of work and family commitments due to the match being played midweek!

Now is the time that the club more than ever need the support of the fans, and it seems unfair and indeed possibly unenlightened, that the Hammers hierarchy were either forced or were complicit in this blatant act of negativity to the team and it's long suffering fans, because believe it or not, West Ham United are in the fight for their lives, and need every tiny bit of luck and the rub of the green to avoid plummeting to the depths of the lower leagues.

Doing Citeh a favour when not required to do so by 'law', is neither giving the Irons luck, nor the rub of the green!

I agree. It's war out there. We can't be doing the enemy favours when all they want to do is put a bullet in our survival hopes.

just wanted to get it out of the way and move on to more `winnable` fixtures.

They way we have played this season,injuries and the like,i think its plain to see that all games for us are hard,no matter who the opposition is,so none can be classed as winnable,its a matter of trying to survive,and acheiving what we can.
