As a life-long West Ham fan I always find this talk of us being an arrogant club quite bizarre and amusing. We're probably the most self-depreciating bunch of supporters around!
It's interesting that all the talk of us bigging ourselves up as favourites in the lead up to this match has actually come from Blackpool.
To be honest, I believe we are a Premier League sized club, but the same could be said of Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest etc. True big clubs with big support. To me, size of club will always come down to how many fans are in the stadium, and even in England's second flight, our average home attendance is 11th highest in the country.
Either way, there's only 1 game I'm interested in today. Come on you IRONS!!
