Magnusson gets his figures mixed up? Surely!

Eggert Magnusson in an interview with KUMB has stated that West Ham fans average salaries are second only to Chelsea's @ a staggering 60K GBP per annum. This surely can not be right. Personally I'm not even on 60k AUD and if I went back to the UK I beleive I could seek an annual salary of approx 30 to 35k GBP as an accountant.

I seriously hope he is not basing his figures on our future growth on this because I feel he could get a rude shock. On my pilgrimage to Upton Park last year I'm fairly sure that the average person sitting in my vacinity was not holding down a job with greater renumeration than myself - ok appearances can be decieving but surely they weren't all playing down their wealth.

Perhaps Eggert is including boyhood West Ham fans Bobby Zamora, Mark Noble & Lee Bowyer in his calculations? Or maybe self confessed West Ham fans and Birmingham directors Messrs Gold & Sullivan have also found their way into the figures? Who knows - all I know is if the average hammers fan's salary really is 60k GBP then I need to find a new job!
