For TWO minutes yesterday, we had something to cheer about
For two minutes yesterday West Ham climbed off the bottom of the table, then Wolves pulled a goal back against Bolton to match their goal difference and the Hammers hit bedrock again.
With a third of the season gone West Ham are five points adrift of safety with no sign of escaping the relegation zone. Avram Grant pledged: ”I have no intention to give up,” but the manager sounded like Comical Ali on Mogadon as he insisted everything was fine except the results. This was the third of four matches from which co-owner David Sullivan had demanded seven points. So far the return is three draws, and the final match of the quartet is at Anfield on Saturday.
