After finishing a disappointing 13th last season, West Ham United have quietly gone about their business in the recently concluded transfer window, spending about €90 million to sign a number of high caliber players.
The summer splurge and the appointment of a vastly experienced and successful manager in the form of Manuel Pellegrini has got West Ham fans all charged up and they’re dreaming of big things to come.
But a caller on sports radio station Talksport seemed like he got a bit too excited about their chances when he claimed that their bench is stronger than that of London rivals Tottenham, a club that finished 3rd last season
Now, even with Tottenham not signing a single player during the summer, it was a tall claim to make and the incredulous broadcaster proceeded to put the caller in a spot as he asked him to “name who’s on the bench for West Ham”.
What unfolded was a massive fail for the West Ham fan as he failed to name anyone besides Andy Carroll and then things just got awkwardly funny.
