Alright my ansomeessssss hhoioooooweeessss uuusssseee doing
Well on the day we travel to Luton is the day we find out who we have in the Europa league and also it’s transfer deadline day even by our standards. This is a busy day
A steady journey up saw me leaving at 12 o’clock in glorious sunshine up the M5 and the M4 to Bicester.
I know why Bicester, I hear you say
well that’s where my mate Ian Bomber Rawlings lives and he had offered me a lift and Company to Luton, as I was on my own Billy, no mates.
On the way a van decided to spill its worldly goods across the road which caused mayhem one box hitting my car no damage but carnage happened
An interesting journey and finding out that we will be going to Greece, sunshine, Serbia war zone and Germany. Don’t mention the war what a draw
as I have stated before I will be travelling to all three even though one of those we will not be able to purchase a ticket due to the ban we received for someone being struck by a lighter on the head,
which when you think about the punishment compared to AK Alkmaar, who rioted and went into the stands, seems harsh versus there suspended ban
Anyway, a great journey up with great company across some scenic parts of Britain. I rarely see and up and onto Luton where it was. Nearly impossible to find a parking space which reminded me of Brighton last week and yet again more train strikes caused havoc for the travelling 1200 West Ham fans
Now Luton is a quirky little ground for those of you who that Don’t know it is sandwiched between rows of houses which actually adds to the experience with a brand-new stand being built in just under 12 weeks. It was going to be a new experience for me on my third visit to the stadium but again like classic old football grounds ,The kids were out on the streets, kicking footballs around before the game. Nostalgia was in abundance for those who wanted it.
So I did my traditional walk through someone’s backyard. Via there Washing line and asked them for a cup of tea (pictures enclosed) and into the unreserved seating, which, as you can imagine caused havoc with everyone, just wanting to pile down towards the front
Still before the kickoff, we all knew a win would put us top of the league and we could sing all our favourite songs again
champions in Europe. You will never sing that champions in Europe. We know what we are, and of course we are top of the league say we are top of the league to name a few
The talk before the game was all about whether Kudus and dinos would start for West Ham and what formation we would use as Luton or a very defensive team and so are we what would we look like and how would we change our plans?
The team was as predicted and to be fair was very strong. Álvarez is really going to be one hell of a player and really gives us balance in the team. JWP was on fire as was Bowen.
Luckily, we have played Luton earlier on in the season because their crowd is going to be the 12th man like it was for the forest fans. It’s only banter but quite a few abusive songs towards bowing about his wife and of course, Kurt Zouma, and is infamous incident with the cat only Fire, those two players on to score goals, and both players taunted their fans even more
The banter between the two fans was back-and-forth and really good and another cracking atmosphere. That’s three this year all equally as good. For different reasons, Luton might well be a shit hole. Their fans may drive you nuts, but I hope they stay up so we can experience this quaint little football club and their fans again.
The journey home was obviously brilliant, made all the better with the three points a couple of beers and talk about super David Moyes been at football genius and the greatest manager, ever only joking
And so we go into the international break top of the league well until everybody plays on Saturday and Sunday, but even then the worst that can happen to us as we end up sis. More importantly, with 10 points 25% of the way to safety are European tour on the horizon and more fun to be had. Let’s hope this journey doesn’t stop because it’s really good at the moment
And As always Brady out out out
