The armadillos and the red hot poker stars!

For those living outside of the bubble, the day was like any other…dull, damp and downright deplorably committed to retail therapy commissioned by the ladies of the lamp, however for those inside…it was a whirlwind of mixed and turbulent emotions, a struggle with impersonal sanity and the journey through hellish nightmares until the first ball was kicked. The West Ham masses had been feeling increasingly uncomfortable all week, waiting for when Saturday comes to unload pent-up frustrations and …

What can West Ham do against Chelsea?

When the new Premier League season started, I was rather hopeful in West Ham’s chances of proving that we are indeed a solid team to play against. However, as we started with poor results and even worse performances, I got ready to endure another difficult year as a Hammers’ fan. Generally speaking, we possess a rather talented team with a unique mix of exuberant youth players and more composed experienced ones. With a forward line-…

Standing room only for the Amazonians?

West Ham are entering the final stretch of this marathon season and Moyes must find a way to direct his players to deliver a performance and more importantly gain crucial points. This may not be the season when West Ham are just ‘too good to go down’ but it is doubtful they will also amass the 42 points that has seen them relegated in a previous campaign. “I would rather lie facedown on the…

A Momentous Day: My Reasons Why I Support West Ham United

I shouldn’t support West Ham. I don’t have the generational and geographic pull many of our fans have. My family are from Limerick City in the west of Ireland, my mum and dad moved over to East London in the 1960’s, my army of cousins and uncles all supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Celtic but my Dad chose West Ham. Why? I have found myself asking that question a few times through the years, would it …

This is now

The West Ham juggernaut ground to a sudden halt against Liverpool last weekend. It was a long journey and although it was well tuned it wasn’t at the races versus a red machine that was firing on all cylinders. On the road once again it ventures into Wales to go head to head against a revitalised Swansea who have aspirations of avoiding relegation like ourselves. Since the arrival of David Moyes we’ve made …

Oh what a carry on! What a laughable set of circumstances that would make our journey to the end of the season fraught with danger and pessimism.

I can foresee a fanbase getting increasingly frustrated with the type of football they will witness. There will be social media lynch mobs verbalising …

Corporate Juntas & Mariah Careys

The hum now forgotten and replaced by an indignant shrill from an advancing mob…pitch forks in hand, flamed torches burning the night air…ready for a lynching whilst the onlookers stand bemused and popcorn fed. The so-called protectors of our realm have been caught napping whilst we have struggled to defend against neighbouring invaders. We had been weakened by plagues, pestilence and impoverished performances, yet they did not unshackle the iron gates giving access to the caches of gold. As West Ham…
