David Croft Writes for West Ham United FC

I must confess that I didn’t write a letter to Santa this year, just didn’t get the time. But it has to be said that the big man came up trumps over the Christmas period with tickets to Villa away, Southampton and Liverpool at home and then Wolves in the cup as well. Four games on the trot, something of a rarity for me these days and impossible once the F1 season gets underway on March 20th. 

So thank you Santa, what a pressie and a proper away day trip in the mix as well, although for long periods at Villa and the first half against Southampton it didn’t seem like much of a present. But then Slav made the changes and brought on Lanzini and Carroll, and the rest as they say, is history.
