WORRIED ABOUT LOSING CARROLL IN JANUARY? I’M NOT SO SURE.

I was initially panic-stricken when I read Brendan Rodgers’ admission that he might look into recalling Andy Carroll in January. We had just demolished Fulham 3-0 and, while the whole team played well, a lot of our prowess was down to the Andy Carroll factor. The idea of…

A VACATION TO THE NAPPA VALLEY

There are many parts of the world renowned for their wine and scenery, often designated as “wine tourism” destinations. However, while the regions that come to mind first and foremost tend to be in places like France and Italy, or even South Africa and Australia, one of the world’s …

PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL PREVIEW: IT NEEDS TO BE CLOSE OR WRAPPED UP!

To me it has felt like a very short season; seems like only a couple of months ago I was excitedly tuning in to see us buckle under the pressure and lose to Cardiff on the opening day of the season. There’s…

READING INTO IT

It seems a little dramatic to say that our match against Reading could decide who achieves automatic promotion, but it’s hard not to see it that way. A win for Reading would see them go four points clear of us and, when you consider their incredible …

SIX FROM SIX IS THE TALK OF DESPERATE AVRAM, SAM: POSH VS IRONS PREVIEW

My lack of posts over the last couple of weeks is directly related to the sense of frustration at our last few performances. I wrote my last blog after the draws against Watford and Doncaster, hoping those two results would be the end of a disappointingly frustrating run …

SO ENDS A WEEK OF FRUSTRATION FOR THE HAMMERS NATION

I was convinced that we would end the last week as the team at the top of the Championship. Isn’t it just classic West Ham to blow the the easiest chance we could possibly get to go top with a game in hand? With all due respect to Watford…

WEST HAM vs WATFORD: TIME TO LOOK EXCLUSIVELY BELOW

Last night I was so caught up in watching the Chelsea and Arsenal matches on TV that I completely forgot to keep my eye on the Saints vs Ipswich score. I’d already made up my mind to hate Ipswich this season after their two results  against us, but there…

MONDAY MUSING: TRENDY NOLAN AND LINDA’S WEAKER FOOT SEAL THE DEAL

I was pretty pleased with the starting lineup for this one, with Henri Lansbury getting a rare start alongside Mark Noble and returning captain Kevin Nolan. I had thought that Nolan’s return would even further limit Lansbury’s chances, and it probably would have done were…

CARDIFF CITY VS WEST HAM: PREDICTABLE UNPREDICTABILITY ACROSS THE BOARD

I’m back to feeling pretty damn nervous about each match now. Saints have remembered their great form and I’m even looking below us with trepidation, fearing dropping out of the top two. We’re entering the stage of the season when a failure to…

I LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN THE CROSSED-ARM IRONS SALUTE, BUT SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT

One of my favourite sights as a West Ham fan is when a player replicates the crossed irons of our crest in the form of a salute to the crowd. For some reason the Irons salute is rarer than a clean strike of the ball by Freddie Piquionne. Maybe …

ANOTHER ACCOLADE SECURES SUPER SCOTT HIS SUMMER JOB

June 2010 saw a disappointed Scott Parker return home after being left out of Fabio Capello’s final World Cup squad. Much like Rob Green, Parker was overlooked for too long before receiving further international recognition and, after finally breaking into the provisional squad, was treated pretty…

WEST HAM 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE: A CLEAN SHEET, ANOTHER POINT AND WERE ON TARGET

A 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace feels like a disappointment and is really frustrating, but as Mark Noble said after the final whistle: “It’s a clean sheet, another point and we’re on target for where we want to be.” The game…

HAMMERS’ LINEUP UNCHANGED VS PALACE

Ian ‘Moose’ Abrahams has been on Twitter saying that his club sources have told him that the West Ham starting lineup will be the same as that fielded against Blackpool. Sam’s lineups have always been hard to predict and, despite the good performance …
