Revealed: West Ham star Michail Antonio tells how he snubbed Tottenham as a teenage starlet

West Ham star Michail Antonio has paid tribute to the good advice given to him by his mum…which meant he didn’t end up a Tottenham player! The attacker chose Mother’s Day to lift the lid on her wise words that lead to a career in the professional game; and saw him in a Hammers shirt rather than a Spurs top. Jet-heeled winger Antonio has told how his mum made sure that as an aspiring teenage footballer he listened to…

Do they ever listen?

I laughed out loud when I saw the first ‘Media Watch’ proudly tweeted out by the @Westhamunited, the official West Ham twitter page. It’s only taken three months for the club to rebrand, dress up and disguise its previous ‘The Insider’ page. For those of you who have not read the page, it was a gossip page about the club’s transfer dealings. If it sounds ridiculous, it’s because it really is…

Would you choose Adrian or Randolph?

It was about four months ago now that the calls for Darren Randolph to replace fan favourite Adrián first began to fall upon the London Stadium. Originally, these calls fell on deaf ears with Bilic sticking with his established number one goalkeeper, presumably due to his superior performances in the 2015/16 season. A few games down the line saw Slaven begin to tinker with his side from front to back and eventually that tinkering reached our Spanish shot-stopper. After a string …

Hang on, it’s only March!

I know we’ve had three consecutive losses and no wins in five, but I think some fans believe our season is quite literally over. We have nine games left and although there are nine points between the bottom and ourselves, I wouldn’t take safety for granted. Nor however, would I confine myself to relegation and demand Slav’s sacking. It’s been a weird week for the club since the loss to Leicester many have gone into meltdown. The loss was especially painful …

West Ham winger Feghouli pledges to help Hammers out of the doldrums

West Ham winger Sofiane Feghouli has pledged to redouble his efforts to help the Hammers out of a five-game losing streak in the Premier League. The international break means Slaven Bilic’s side are without a game this weekend and the Algeria attacker has plenty of time to dwell on a recent run of poor form as his home nation are without a game.

At least Allardyce could defend…

With injuries to three very key players, one a season ending injury for arguably our player of the season Pedro Obiang, West Ham are entering a very crucial period which may well shape the short term future of our Club. Defeats to Bournemouth and Leicester have left us less than comfortably placed in the league table and points are still needed to ensure Premier League survival. With a defensive unit in crisis, we are conceding goals…

Don’t make Randolph scapegoat and axe him as West Ham No.1, Hammers legend Cottee tells Bilic

West Ham United keeper Darren Randolph is still the club’s No.1 and shouldn’t be dropped by boss Slaven Bilic. That’s according to former Hammers striker Tony Cottee, who insists Randolph should retain his place in the team despite arguably being responsible for the first goal by Leicester in their 3-2 win at the London Stadium at the weekend. The defeat meant that Bilic’s men have now gone five games without a…

Life’s a pitch! Antonio: West Ham ‘adjusted’ to size of London Stadium surface, yet results seem to disagree

Life’s a pitch; a really big pitch in the case of West Ham’s HQ, the London Stadium. But is the playing area at the home of the Hammers impacting tactically on Slaven Bilic’s side? Winger Michail Antonio, who has forced to pull out of the England squad with a hamstring injury which is likely to sideline him for up to a month, has suggested that the pitch size was a problem early on at the stadium after…

The 3-2 defeat to the Foxes means Bilic’s men are without a win in five top flight outings.
