A Bit of a Crunch Match

The Capital One Cup draw opened up a can of worms when West Ham United were drawn to play Sheffield United in the second round.

Our paths have crossed before, most notably in 2007 when Sheffield United were relegated from the Premier League.

That season saw West Ham found guilty of playing a certain Carlos Tevez when he wasn`t eligible to play and when Sheffield United were relegated they pursued a court case that saw West ham United forced to hand over 20 million in compensation.

Relations between the two clubs have never quite been the same and ahead of the Capital One Cup clash, Sam Allardyce has remarked,

"I think the reaction is to get a team out there that wins. I`m not sure how guilty Sheffield United were on it but that`s nothing to do with me. It`s about making sure the fans are happy when I go on Tuesday because they feel aggrieved at what Sheffield United did and if I can do that for them, then great."

Now usually not a lot of significance is given to the Capital One Cup but this time it`s different, let`s crush them!
