West Ham musings by Pete May, author of Hammers in the Heart, West Ham:Irons in the Soul and Flying So High:West Ham's Cup Finals.

While the Irons failed to score at Norwich, my inner anorak notes that no fewer than seven former West Ham players scored in the Championship over the weekend. Sam Baldock scored Bristol City's third against Blackburn, Junior Stanislas got Burnley's fifth against Peterborough, Craig Bellamy netted for Cardiff against Leeds, Abdy Faye scored for Hull against Millwall, Hayden "he never lets you down" Mullins put Birmingham ahead at Forest (isn't it time for Pards to make a bid?), Leicester's Paul Konchesky scored a rocket away to Wolves yesterday and on Friday Wayne Bridge scored for Brighton with a free kick against Sheffield Wednesday. Not sure what this proves, but it must be some kind of record...
