This month will host a few very special weeks during what has become an excellent season in such an important year for the club.
Some 9,000 fans travelling to Manchester for a FA Cup quarter final clash against a United side lacking a few key players and relying on a few promising youngsters will be one to treasure – win or lose.
Then comes the chance for us to get a double over Chelsea, and while there have been massive improvements to the performances and results of the Blues, I have every confidence we can beat
Finally, everyone at Blowing Bubbles is looking forward to Mark Noble’s testimonial on March 28. David Bowden sums up beautifully what this game will mean to our captain, our returning heroes and the fans.
We couldn’t build up to this special occasion without looking again at Noble’s chances of getting a call-up to the England squad. We unleashed leading writer Brian Williams to cover this on-going saga and I believe if Roy Hodgson read Brian’s beautifully crafted and compelling argument for his call up, Nobes would get a chance to prove his worth.
Speaking of Mr William’s fine work, I must congratulate him on becoming a best-selling author. Last month his book Nearly Reach the Sky, topped the West Ham category on Amazon – taking over the top spot from Harry Redknapp’s autobiography. If you’ve not yet read Brian’s farewell to the Boleyn, I would encourage you to buy a hard copy or download it onto your Kindle.
