I’m The Boss: Same Team, Same Effort, Better Result

Everton are next up for West Ham in a vital game for both sides on Wednesday night at Goodison. Friday nights point against Leicester had some positives, the team showed togetherness and character to get something from a losing position and in the second half in particular they grew in confidence and were unlucky not to come away with 3 points. Moyes demands hard work and it could be seen in the display of Marko Arnautovic that the players are starting to respond…

Where Are They Now? Stephen Bywater

Destined to be the future of English goalkeeping and an integral member of the Hammers class of 2000, there is no doubt that shot-stopper Stephen Bywater could have gone on to be a West Ham United great. But, did “England’s future No1” fit his ambitious billing, how did his very drawn-out and bizarre career pan out in the end? And, more importantly, where is he now? Stephen Bywater Bywater began his…

Goodbye Slaven, Welcome David

So with a heavy heart, we say goodbye to Slaven, without doubt a decent man, full of integrity and dignity but even his most ardent of supporters could see the writing was on the wall. West Ham are in serious trouble here, the club has no plan, no identity and the team is lacking fight, organisation and most worryingly basic fitness. This is not what we expected when we left Upton Park, the…

Idle Thoughts on the Managerial Merry-Go-Round

In reporting the sacking of Slaven Bilic, the ‘East London & West Essex Guardian’ noted that David Moyes was likely ‘to become just the Hammers’ 16th boss in 117 years’. The 15 previous managers have enjoyed an average of a little under 8 years in charge at West Ham, but, whilst mathematically correct, that figure does not give an accurate picture of the reality. Did any of those fifteen managers actually have anything in the region of eight years at the Hammers’…

West Ham vs Brighton Tactical Analysis

Formations: West Ham started off with a 4-2-3-1 which in my opinion is our best team. In game it was bit more bizarre though with Bilic deploying Kouyate as a striker with Chicharito in order to win aerial balls with Lanzini dropping in to form a midfield 4. This was a short lived experiment though as Bilic brought on Ayew for Kouyate at half time. The 4 4 2 restricted Lanzini as he could not move into …
