What an interesting summer it’s been to be a West Ham fan. I don’t know about you but it barely feels like I’ve had a break from all things claret and blue.
With the summer annual, Big Sam’s sacking, Slav’s appointment, all our transfer activity and, of course, the Europa League - it’s been nonstop. But here we are, the first issue of the season and what a season this could be. There are only two ways it can go in my opinion.
We could have a decent run in the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup, and be battling for a European slot in the league or we’ll crash out of the Europa League and the two cups early doors, get loads of injuries and end up struggling to stay in the league. There is no grey area for West Ham but quietly, I hope I’m proved wrong.
Turning to all matters Blowing Bubbles and with the appointment of Julian Dicks to the coaching staff at West Ham, it has brought an end to his column. It was an absolute pleasure to have Julian on board for two seasons. As many of you have seen on Twitter, he is West Ham through and through. He has such a fantastic relationship with the fans and I can’t thank him enough for contributing to Blowing Bubbles.
Moving on and I’m absolutely delighted to introduce our new columnist, George Parris. I’ve been so impressed with his passion for the magazine and I look forward to reading his musings over the coming season - as I’m sure you are too. Come on you Irons!
