Hammers recent transfer activity, or lack of it as some fans perceive, has taken on an entirely new dynamic of late although it may not seem obvious to those not within the club's inner sanctum. New 2nd highest share owner Daniel Kretinsky's arrival was heralded by many as the 'start of something special', unfortunately as with many 'special events' of the past at the club the much heralded fireworks ended up as a damp squib!

There is a spate of them and then, just like Policemen and Busses, there are none around when you really need them!
