Rejoice in winning ugly

Former Irons favourite George Parris says it is time for West Ham fans to stop being sniffy - and to be happy with winning ugly, if that is what it takes.

The recent 2-1 win over West Brom was hardly one for the purists but after disappointing results against Newcastle and Bournemouth, a win, however it came about, was just what the doctor ordered.

In his exclusive column for Blowing Bubbles magazine, Parris says that win and the 1-1 draw with Spurs - were the ideal start to the new year. "It was key that we got the result against West Brom, and followed that with a valuable point against Spurs," he wrote.

"Now were in the midst of a run of games against teams around us. Its really important we pick up as many points as we can. If its a choice between getting beat or playing scrappy and getting the points, I know what Id take!"
