The Hammer's Bubbles' Burst

West Ham were relegated this weekend after a 3-2 defeat to the hands of fellow relegation strugglers, Wigan. However, they were 2-0 up at half time, but a two-goal heroics by Newcastle and Sunderland-target N'Zogbia burst the Hammer's bubbles and sent them packing. Now it's all about whether or not they can turn this dark time behind them and manage to find the fighting spirit to return to the top flight. However, with the eventual loss of their key players (Green, Bridge, Ba, their captain and talisman Parker, Carlton Cole just being some of them) will they end up doing a Portsmouth?

Of course, Pompey were in administration, but with the loss of key players they've became a mid-championship team, just like Middlesbrough before them. This could be a future for the Hammers, or they can do a Newcastle and ferociously force their way back up.

Either way you think of it, it's hard to believe that an Olympic stadiu, with a capacity of 80,000, will be home to a team in the Second Tier of Football. It is indeed the third largest stadium in England, behind Wembley and Twickenha. Of course, Tottenham won't be happy in the slightest. They'll now have a bigger argument to why they should have it. Spurs are a solid team with in the Premiership, reaching the Champions League last season but having to settle with the Europa Leage this season. Be sure to hear more about this case in the near future.

Do you think West Ham will go straight back up into the Premiership? Or will they struggle to find momentum within the Championship? Have your say here.
