yes, he seems like a good bloke. as does slaven bilic currently doing a great job with the hammers. i may even be able to forgive him for a horrible bit of cheating that saw the french defender laurent blanc sent off against croatia and subsequently missed the world cup final. it was 1996 and really it was the officials' fault, so maybe it's time. now i have written it down i feel i have let it go. the hammers win against chelsea was brilliant - not least because slaven bilic's tactics and behaviour were in such stark contrast to a cheating, petulant chelsea whose players seemed to reflect their manager's attitude - though lacking any suggestipon of his occasional wit.
however - either off them may well be a credit to football - never 'soccer'
