Fantasy football fever gripped the nation at the beginning of the 1990’s. The original concept was created by Andrew Wainstein in England. Fantasy football is a game in which participants assemble an imaginary team of real life footballers and score points based on those players' actual statistical performance or their perceived contribution on the field of play.

Comedian’s David Baddiel and Frank Skinner brought the popular newspaper game to the television screen in their programme ‘Fantasy Football League’ which was first aired in January 1994.

The format of the show was reliant on an actual fantasy football league, made up of teams picked by guest celebrities. A year later Baddiel & Skinner brought out a board game version by Playtime Games. Twelve player game cards were issued for each of the 20 Premiership teams for the 1994-95 season. Players take the role of football manager and receives an initial fund of 25 million pounds to assemble a squad of players. The combined West Ham United’s squad valued at that time totalled £10 million. My namesake Mike Marsh was valued at £1.3m. What price the Hammers squad today? The game cards however can be snapped up for a mere 25 pence each.

The scandalous dismissal of Alvin Martin after only 10 minutes effectively sealed struggling Hammers' fate. Not surprisingly the England veteran's absurd red card for 'serious foul play' stole the tabloid headlines, as Fleet Street stood as one to protest; "Alvin is innocent, okay."

When Pressman foiled Breacker's surge with a hurried punt upfield, there appeared to be little danger in store as Alvin Martin and Mark Bright went in search of the ball. But the 36 year-old lost his footing on the greasy top and, as he floundered on the halfway line, his outstretched arm forced the Owls' goal-getter to join him in the Upton Park mud.

Incredibly referee Danson pointed to the sidelines, and as the crestfallen defensive lynchpin trudged down the tunnel. West Ham's hopes went with him at Sheffield Wednesday went home with a 2-0 win. Alvin' s red card was later Rescinded
