Talking Points and more from the draw at Stoke

Fans fume at woeful Calleri There is certainly no doubt that the board made their fair share of poor signings in last summer’s transfer window, but along with the departed Simone Zaza for many fans Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri has been one of the worst and yesterday many fans ran out of patience with the former Sao Paulo man.

Key Stats from the Hammers’ Draw at Stoke

Let’s start by taking a look at the key statistics from yesterday’s frustrating goalless draw at the Bet 365 Stadium.

The hosts had a hearty share of 57.1 percent possession, to our unflattering 42.9 percent of the keep ball in the draw. Keeping the ball …

Boss Billic urges West Ham stars to see off Stoke and confirm Premier League status

Slaven Bilic has reminded his West Ham players they still have the threat of relegation looming over them. That has to be in the inference from Bilic’s comments ahead of the Premier League clash at Stoke City tomorrow. The Hammers, who have gleaned five points from the past three Premier League games, are highly unlikely to go down as they sit in 14th position and are seven points clear of the drop zone. But the West Ham manager …

Throwback Thursday: West Ham United vs Leicester

In this week’s edition of our weekly throwback segment, we speak to Tom, 57, a lifelong West Ham fan and season ticket holder about his first Hammers experience: “At the age of 18 years old I was eagerly awaiting a New Years Eve party when I found myself being dragged along to a football match. I always played football, but I never really supported any club back then. I was quite nervous about it being my first time. I didn’t really know what …

James Collins has challenged his team-mates to build on the creditable 0-0 draw with Everton and ignite a push up the Premier League table with a win over Stoke at the weekend.

Hammers have all but secured their place in the Premier League after a gutsy draw

Yesterday something amazing happened…Lukaku didn’t score against West Ham! In fact, he never actually looked like scoring. The credit for that must be given to our defenders and in particular our very own Ginger Pele. He was immense, and alongside the returning Winston Reid, we looked defensively sound. Now that’s something we haven’t been able to say much this season. It was a good performance with a much-depleted side. Let’s not get too carried away, Everton weren’t firing on all…
