I’m still finding it hard to get my head around the tragedy that unfolded, on Saturday evening, after our Premier League fixture against Leicester.
I’m old enough and wise enough to accept that life is full of incidents that are unforeseeable and draped in death, but when it happens almost in your rear-view mirror, it certainly hits hard.
As the away support headed away from the King Power Stadium, there were so many topics I had in mind to write about, the late equalizer, the red-card received by Mark Noble and the marvellous performance, once again, given by Declan Rice.
But I still can’t force myself to put those thoughts into print.
To be brutally honest, I guess they’ll never see the light of day, for me, this match will forever be remembered for that awful incident afterwards.
This week, both Leicester City and West Ham United should have been involved in Carabao Cup action, understandably, Leicester City have postponed their tie.
The Hammers, however, are going ahead with their tie and will be welcoming Tottenham Hotspur, to the London Stadium, for what is a compelling fixture.
The two sides recently clashed in a Premier League tie, a game which West Ham lost, hopefully, this Wednesday the result will be different, I, for one, could certainly do with cheering up after the events of Saturday and the Hammers recent run-of-form.
