Ah, there’s nothing like a good old fashioned feel-good photo to purge the average football fan of his/her rampant cynicism and sarcasm.

Here, a young swan has decided to have a gander (goose/swan.. all the same to me) at a West Ham training session. Although the young bird seems to be looking in the other direction, so maybe it’s not a fan of the long-ball game. Still, the bird could fit right in to Big Sam’s aerial game (I cringed as I wrote that last line, and rightly so).
