What's going on at Upton Park? West Ham United have just signed Argentinian World Cup pair Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez, the latter the South American Footballer of the Year for the past three years. Why would Señor Tevez, in particular, want to go to East London? As an article in today's Guardian says, the Hammers are now transformed into contenders for the UEFA Cup. It could all go wrong though - does anybody remember Alberto Tarantini's transfer to Birmingham after the 1978 World Cup?
