"Gazza conflict: Israel targets Hammers chief"

From the BBC:

West Ham football club say the wife and child of its main shareholder, David Sullivan, have been killed in an Israeli air strike on the southern English town of Theydon Bois.

At least 11 Theydonians have died since hostilities resumed on Tuesday, with both sides blaming each other for the former England striker's increasingly erratic behaviour.

The Israeli military said it had carried out 60 air strikes in response to reports that the Newcastle United hero was blasting his Sandbanks neighbours with classical music.

Six weeks of fierce Beethoven have left almost 2,100 neighbours deaf.

A spokesman for the club expressed "profound regret", adding that Gascoine had actually played for Tottenham Hotspur, which is a few miles up the road from West Ham.

Perhaps decommissioning the Arsenal would solve all this?

White Hart lane is twelve miles up the road from Boleyn Ground (West Ham).Not that close.

BJ, good suggestion.

DBC, indeed, but you know how indiscriminate the IDF can be with their shelling, allegedly.
