Conspiracy theorists who were around in 1986 might just be starting to feel a little bit of deja vu as Hammers begin their final run in of the Barclays Premier League season. For those too young to remember, or those who weren't even born then, here is a brief resume˘of what occurred.
One by one little records are being broken by a West Ham side that has been rejeuvinated by a rejeuvinated David Moyes. The Hammers manager looks like an entirely different person now from the cadava like image of 'ghostliness' that first turned up at the London Stadium, the 57 year old Scot has the air about him of someone who knows exactly what he is trying to achieve and precisely where he is trying to take his players.
As we approach the beginning of the 'window that never was' for West Ham United, it is common knowledge regarding the lack of funds available, the club is currently borrowing large amounts of money just to survive during the Covid-19/20/21 Pandemic! So when rumours regarding an ex-tottenham and an ex-arsenal, now Chelsea, player began to circulate they were greeted with a fair amount of scepticism.
