So a fairytale season continues and West Ham are in the FA Cup Final for the first time in 26 years. I've been a supporter since 1982, and have never seen them in a Final, although I used to borrow my uncle's top-loading videotape of that famous 1980 Final and watch it over and over when I was a kid.

When Marlon Harewood -- one of the players who has proved the doubters wrong this year -- stuck it in the back of the net, our lord and savior Alan Pardew was overpowered by funk. The evidence is below:

R.I.P John Lyall -- West Ham's manager when I was growing up and by all accounts, a true gentleman. In the last 5 minutes I've read reminiscences of him graciously signing a get well card for a stranger on the street; allowing a 7 year old who'd travelled a long way to a game that was ultimately called off to take penalties at Upton Park instead; inviting a kid and his dad into the locker room to meet the players two hours before a match. That kind of stuff just doesn't happen any more.

For me, he was just West Ham's manager, and therefore a kind of demi-god.

Hmmm -- I guess West Virginia needed the lebensraum.... Probably tough to find decent smoked salmon in the Dakotas as well. If you want a closer look, the above map is clickable.
