Regular readers of KUMB will be well acquainted with our valiant match reporter, East Stand Martin.
One of the faithful who puts in the mileage both home and away, Martin (along with son Jack) has covered the vast majority of West Ham's first team matches for KUMB since the beginning of the 2003/04 season, when we were relegated to the Football League.
His witty and irreverent summaries have kept Hammers from all corners of the globe amused over the ensuing months and years (and God knows we needed something to laugh at during our time in the Championship).
For the second successive year, and by way of a wee New Year bonus for KUMB readers, Martin has compiled his 2005 match reports into a 166-page, 60,000+ word PDF extravaganza which you can download - absolutely free of charge - right here on KUMB.

Finally, all of us at here at KUMB would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year - and to say 'thanks' for your continued support in this, our 9th year online.
