Fulham - Roy Explains (Again)!

With West Ham United keen to re-enact that famous Shakespeare play, The Merchant of Venice and play the part of Shylock, (Sir) Roy Hodgson has once again come out and explained why he rested key players last Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the clash with Wolfsburg tonight, Roy has remarked about the situation,

'We haven't prioritised,'

'But in one particular game after we played Juventus, Manchester City and Tottenham and prior to playing Wolfsburg, I made the decision to rest four or five players knowing full well I had a right to do that with the quality I have at my disposal."

'It meant those players did not play five games in 12 days, when they have been playing five games in 12 days the rest of the time."

'It's never happened in my life before, I've never had a series where we played every three days for three months.'

So there you have it, wind your necks in West Ham, you might understand the problem if you ever reached Europe!

This is just annoying. I was actually hoping West Ham DIDN'T get relegated, but now...
they're ones to cast stone... they only reason they're up is because of an illegal player in Tevez... they should be ashamed of themselves...
