Confirmation that our boxing day fixture against Arsenal has been postponed due to striking tube people.  I imagine we did not put too much of a fight over this one, with our injury crisis and fixture congestion, I'm sure Sam is pleased of a bit of a break over the festive period.  Mind you, we need to be careful what we wish for, I recall a Wolves fixture being postponed because of ice and it was widely felt we had a bit of a result as Carlton Cole was injured.  He returned for the re-arranged fixture in which we got smashed 3-1.  Still, it's a different Hammers these days and I think having a bit of a break will serve us well.
