Free Blowing Bubbles Issue#9 NOW online
I honestly believe we have a squad more capable of challenging for Europe than Brendan Rogers' side and I really hope I'm proved right this weekend.
It's been a busy couple of weeks at Blowing Bubbles HQ. Having Chelsea and Liverpool at home two weeks running has really challenged us but thanks to our brilliant writers, I think we've managed to produce two outstanding editions covering the issues you've all been talking about.
Kicking off for us this week is Phil Reilly (pages 4&5) with his take on the abuse by the small section of West Ham fans at White Hart Lane last month and his plea for fans to “drown out the thugs”.
We've then got a brilliant piece by Loud&Proud columnist Brian Williams (pages 6&7) on games played under the lights at Upton Park. His work is always brilliant but his efforts this week are outstanding.
Lucy Woolford, who appears to have sneaked above me in the Blowing Bubbles fantasy league, tries to solve the dilemma of playing Maiga (pages 8&9 ) before Forever West Ham writer Carl Bateson (page 10) argues the case for singing "Big Sam's claret and blue army" on the terraces - a view I'm sure not everyone agrees with but it's a good shout.
Thomas Johnson has pulled together a nice piece comparing our likely starting XI today to the side which last took on Liverpool (pages 12 & 13) while Richard Johnson has focused his attentions on the praise being heaped on Joey O’Brien (pages 16 & 17).
Finally we’ve got two exclusive interviews again for you this week. Tim Holland caught up with ex-Hammer Peter Butler about his time coaching in Asia while Dave Clements has interviewed Sam Taylor about life after West Ham.
