The season began with a 3-0 win against West Ham and we all thought things were going to be just dandy. But then James Milner was sold and Gerard Houllier faced the wrath of bedsheets and we had to deal with the possibility of the scary R-word.

Flash ahead two years. Now we're traveling to West Ham, back in the Premiership after a year away. We've got a manager in place and his name is not Alex McLeish. Manchester City isn't lusting after any of our players. There's a possibility Alan Hutton might be shot from a cannon to the moon.
