What with their nightmare start to the Premier League season, not to mention the distraction of in-fighting in the confounds of their brand new stadium, West Ham United were mighty relieved to drag themselves from the relegation zone following a valuable 1-0 victory away to Crystal Palace last weekend.
Not that they didn’t ride their luck of course.
As well as a missed penalty via new signing Christian Benteke, the Hammers had to fight the efforts of an Eagles ball-boy when holding on for a valuable three-points.
With time running out for his side and with the opposition down to 10 men, teenager Kwadwo Baah took matters into his own hands when keeper Adrian insisted on p*** taking levels of time wasting.
Whilst his efforts proved futile, the Palace’s youth team player has now become somewhat of a folk hero among Palace fans,
And, with their tongue firmly in cheek, he was dealt a severe punishment for his exploits by the clubs video channel.
Have a look.

Expect this to set a precedent.
