I`ll hold my hands up and admit I was delighted when West Ham announced that they`d signed the former German international, Thomas Hitzlsperger.

My enthusiasm for the move grew and grew when our associates over at Vital Villa congratulated us on signing the player and informing us that he was much-loved during his time at Villa Park.

Sadly though, we`ve yet to see Thomas in action and any hopes of him making his Premier League bow in the clash with Chelsea, this Saturday, have already been blown away by the acknowledgment that the injury that has kept him out since pre-season, is still troubling him and that he will not be available.

What is it David Sullivan said about our season starting, in earnest, in October? Perhaps Thomas is thinking along the same lines!
