West Ham are enjoying one of their best seasons in recent memory, and it’s in no small part thanks to the influence of their brilliant Czech duo.

The West Ham recruitment team deserve a great deal of credit for picking up the pair of them, and you get the feeling that, with them being close friends, they’re enjoying playing together in East London.
However, being so tight-knit with your teammates has it’s pitfalls.
