Something Has To Give As Irons Take On Canaries, Fitness?

Saturday lunchtime, high noon at Carrow Road, some of the Barclays Premier League's last chance saloon shootists assemble for their relegation OK coral! Cue the late and great Ennio Morricone's final confrontation soundtrack of the music box and the seconds ticking down, make no mistake that despite there being no crowd to create the atmosphere players are used to, the forthcoming game has massive significance for both clubs.

FLYNN DOWNES: THE LEAGUE ONE MIDFIELDER THAT COULD REPLACE RICE

A Noble Cause But Two Points Lost!

Ahead of the games against Chelsea and Newcastle, most fans would have been overjoyed at the prospect of emerging with four points, and yet in the cold light of day people will be disappointed with the club having only attained just the four points, the two 'lost' points may come back to haunt David Moyes who was none too happy with the way his team conceded the 2nd Newcastle goal, only 81 seconds after scoring through the superb Tomas Soucek.

Irons Join The Predators For Kipre

West Ham United are preparing to do what most other clubs do when there is a lower league club in crisis, hover around and pick off their best players at bargain basement prices. Such is the case with the Irons pursuit and interest in Wigan Athletic's centre back Cedric Kipre.

Thieffa Investigation Hypocrisy

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, those bastions of honesty FIFA. or Thieffa as we prefer to call them, have climbed down from their ivory tower in order to 'remind' people that they are Europe's football power brokers and what better way than to help give little old West Ham a bit of a kicking in the process.

For You Ze Var Is Over! Moyes Capitulates To BBC
