Here we are folks, the update you've all been waiting for. Apologies for the delay but we're here now hey. First off Diehards would like to express our sadness at the tragic death of Cameroon and Lyon player Marc Vivian Foe. Marco was a hugely talented player as two of our team can vouch for, Brian and Sam, as they were regulars at Upton Park when Marc was at West Ham United. Thanks for the memories Marc we will not forget you.
