They say the more things change, the more they stay the same. Where West Ham United are concerned, that much is certainly true. The last three years have seen the club sack long-serving manager Harry Redknapp, finish 7th in the most competitive league in the world, then drop out altogether. Redknapp's replacement, Glen Roeder, was also given the axe as the club faced financial crisis. The plot would not look out of place in Eastenders, it's been that bizarre. The Hammers now face life in the first division under new manager Alan Pardew, so will they bounce back or continue to flounder? How did they get in such a mess in the first place? How could West Ham win consecutive cup-ties at Manchester United and Sunderland, then lose at home to Spurs? These questions and more are posed and then totally ignored in Robert Banks' brilliant new book, THE LEGACY OF BARRY GREEN.
