Moyes must build from the back to have West Ham success

West Ham were the latest victims of title contenders Man City on Sunday, with the Hammers unlucky not to get a draw before a late David Silva strike gave City all of the points at the London Stadium. The Hammers have not had a nice time of things lately, losing four of their last five games and sitting second bottom in the Premier League table. New Hammers boss David Moyes has managed just a single point from…

A Day Out

The defeat against Everton got me to thinking about supporters, fans and followers of our illustrious club. Whilst on a Californian Road Trip with my wife a couple of years back I thought it would be a good idea to sample sport American style. There’s plenty of choice. American Football, Soccer, Basket Ball or Ice Hockey. We were staying in San Diego and were in luck. The Padres the local Baseball…

Bite the bullet

As West Ham sit precariously in the bottom three is it time to face the facts and admit we’re not really up to Premier League standards. Years of yo-yoing between divisions looks on the cards unless there’s a quick upturn in fortunes. West Ham seem to be doing a predictable West Ham this season and screwing up at every opportunity. Needless sending offs, throwing away leads and sacking fans favourite Super Slav. I’ve come to the conclusion that relegation may …

Scout Report: Javier Hernandez

Joining in a £16 million deal from Leverkusen, Javier Hernandez may well prove to be the goal scorer that West Ham have spent years searching for. Given the current market, the price paid is a small cost to bring in a forward who has scored 65 goals in top European leagues including 37 in the Premier League. The 29 year-old is unlikely to solve the striking problems for future years but if he can …

Fonte’s Portugal Claim Third As Premier League Players Star In The Confederations Cup

The Confederations Cup came to its climax last Sunday as both the third place play-off and the Final were played. All four sides involved were littered with current and former Premier League players. The final turned out to be a close game between Chile and Germany with the reigning World Champions emerging victorious. They will be hoping it proves to have been a good preparation exercise ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Russia. Much…

The Scout Report: Andre Gray

The last few weeks of transfer rumour surrounding West Ham has focused on the striking crisis faced by the club. Each week it seems that the Hammers are linked to another striker and in many cases with good reason. Now with confirmation that Enner Valencia has joined Mexican club Tigres, the club would need to bring in a number of options before the season starts. There is still no definite news about Olivier Giroud but recent information is that he is considering…

Confederations Cupdate: Portugal and Fonte exit at the semi final stage

Fonte Plays As Portugal Push For The Semi-Final

The 2017 Confederations Cup is a week old now and has turned up more talking points than normal. Past editions of the competition have gone by without many fans taking notice and in reflection, this may be the same. It has however thrown up a few things to discuss and in large the football is not one of them. The majority of the games have produced close results but it has been more the introduction of Video Assistant Referees which …

Scout Report: Steve Mounie

This week saw West Ham join the race to sign highly rated Montpelier striker Steve Mounie. The forward who’s goals helped his side stave off relegation from Ligue 1 this season is one of three the club are interested in. From the injury problems to Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho last season it is clear that the club need to assess their attacking options. If rumours are the be believed they are…

Antonio The Smiling Bull Signs New Deal

So all the speculation about Antonio joining Chelsea was wrong – for now at least. The news of a 4 year deal is great, but we all know that contracts mean nothing if a player wants to go. Just ask a certain Payet. What the contract does mean is that we should get a fair price when or if our Smiling Bull moves on. And hopefully Michel has also got another clause inserted into the deal, “Under …

Slaven Faces Exit Just Like Zola

So apparently Bilic’s tenure at West Ham comes down to how we perform in the last two home games of the season.  As the final whistle blows on our miserable first season in the London Stadium Emperor Sullivan will clambour to his feet, hold his thumb out in front of him and, in a moment of high drama, either point it to the sky or down to damnation. It is an interesting approach but it is…

Bilic to give Carroll a good talking to!

So Slaven is going to have a chat with Andy Carroll about his injury record. Brilliant! I know talking therapies are all the rage in Hollywood but does Bilic really believe that he has the power of healing in his words? If so, it’s a bloody shame he didn’t give Andy a good talking to 24 months ago! But who knows, if he succeeds with Carroll, Slaven might work the oracle with Sakho too, although all the rumours suggest that the manager’s…

Pochettino Fears Hammer Blow to Tottenham’s Title Charge

Even as we speak, Pochettino has retreated into a bunker beneath White Hart Lane with the Tottenham tactical brains trust, desperately seeking a plan for how to stop West Ham’s rampant strike force. To misquote The Sound of Music, the challenge is how do you solve a problem like Calleri? How, exactly, do you catch a cloud and pin it down? A Tottenham source revealed, “Poch has had to contend with some great strikers…
