Hologram At The LS Of Vera Lynn Singing Bubbles?

Watching The Great Barclays Premier League 'operation restart' will have been a strange experience for many, the lack of a crowd being the obvious change. Around the Country clubs are adjusting to the new normal and researching ways to enhance the viewing spectacle, sadly Dame Vera Lynn has just passed away, mind you at the ripe old age of 103 Gob bless her. Dame Vera was born in East Ham and was an avid Hammers fan, she was known to attend matches, often incognito, on a regular basis in her younger years.

Back in the Day, we used to have direct access to the club's PR department, and what a very jolly 'old school' set up it was, and Yes back in the day we would be formally requested to attend the weekly press briefing at 'Chadders', and be invited to help ourselves to tea or coffee in a Styrofoam cup along with as many Bourbon and Custard Cream biscuits we could get hold of before the dreaded 'Red Tops' descended!

Unfortunately since dear old Peter left the Press Office we became personna non grata at the club due to, possibly telling the truth, regarding Media Sport Investment's collusion regarding the Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano transfers, we annoyed 'Tell the bell end' to such an extent that they actually had a picture of the Org's Ed in the little green booth at the entrance to the training ground, with a No Access what so ever note.

Despite our exclusion, we still have the odd 'Doris', or Dean', if you want to be politically correct, associated with the club to find out a snippet or two. We have sent through a suggestion that perhaps the club might consider projecting a Hologram of Dame Vera performing one of the known versions that exist of her singing 'I'm forever blowing bubbles'. Obviously the projected visual would not be in sync with the audio, but there are some clever chaps working with the club's 'live tech' department that could organise a seamless performance, if they lack the necessary facilities BT Sport, who are housed in the same London Stadium complex as the club, most definitely do have the technology to do so.

It would be a nice touch, and would give a linear time frame of communication that would connect supporters and fans of all ages, not only of West Ham United, perhaps they could follow with We'll meet again or possibly close the game with it, as it would resonate among all of those who have lost loved ones, it would be a fitting tribute, come on West Ham and make it happen. This tribute might seem a bit 'Dad's Army, but it should be remebered, particularly in the light of various equality issues surfacing now, that a vast amount of Black and Ethnic minority soldiers and citizens fought side by side with their brethrin from these shores to overcome the tyranny of Nazi Germany. -Ed
