Talking Point

This is what is known as a ‘Dubai filler’…

In the last thread I said that Dimitri Payet was well on the way to becoming a Hammers legend – someone who might in the future feature in an all time Top 5 Hammers. Well for lack of anything else to write about, I decided to compile my list of my all time Top 10 Hammers. Well, I say ‘all time’, what I really mean is my Top Ten Hammers that I have actually seen play for West Ham. Having said that I will include Bobby Moore, even though I never saw him play for West Ham, as my first game was in March 1974, after he had left the club. I’ll play him as my joker!

1. Bobby Moore
2. Billy Bonds
3. Trevor Brooking
4. Paolo Di Canio
5. Alan Devonshire
6. Tony Cottee
7. Alvin Martin
8. Julian Dicks
9. Rio Ferdinand
10. Dimitri Payet

Yes, I know, I know, how could I include Payet after what I wrote yesterday? Harold Wilson once said ’a week is a long time in politics". Well, a day is a long time in consistent football commentary!

So that’s my top ten. Am I mad?
