Light at the end of the tunnel? It looked ominous two months ago, an untried manager, an unsettled squad, the backers going bust and the team in free-fall. But it looks like West Ham have got some iron in their management structure and all seem to be singing from the same song sheet. Zola seems to indeed have the last say about transfer dealings and, Bellamy aside, has rebuffed the richer clubs attempts to cherry pick from our squad. A new era?
Carlton Cole seems to have sensed it and is in the form of his life. This stability may prove to be the right way and the future may prove bright allowing us to move on from the boom and bust era of the past?
