Ravel tells the fans what they want to hear

Let’s face it, we all want Ravel Morrison in claret and blue next season. He’s the best young player we’ve seen take the first-team by storm in many, many years and it’d be ridiculous if we were to allow him to leave so soon.

So it’s our final home game of the season and the perfect opportunity to give us fans something to smile about by making it a hat-trick of wins over Spurs this season. It could also be Allardyce’s last game at Upton Park as our manager, which means it could also be the last time we’ll… Read more »

West Ham v Tottenham – Hat-trick heaven?

So here it is. The most anticipated home game of the year, and our last at the Boleyn Ground this season.

The ‘Nightmare Starting XI’ for West Ham next season

Given our transfer record over the last few seasons, you have to wonder whether we’re set for another frustrating and disappointing summer transfer window.

Does Cole’s West Ham career depend on Allardyce’s future?

When Carlton Cole arrived at West Ham in August 2006, given that he was a former Chelsea player, few would have believed that he would be so popular. Perhaps one of the reasons for this popularity is the fact that he scored on his debut with his first touch in a 3-1 win at home… Read more »

Why KEEPING Allardyce is West Ham’s route to consistency and stability

If Britain held referendum after referendum – rather than allowing MPs, as delegates, make the decisions – we’d reintroduce the death penalty and depart the EU to the detriment of everyone. Unfortunately, the latter may actually happen. In a similar vein, while West Ham fans form the blood of the club, the rebellious crowd must… Read more »

Hammers fans should stop going if they’re not happy

As this season is winding down, there has been the constant argument over the style of football we have or have not ‘played.’ For me, it has not been the way I grew up watching West Ham play but, then again, times have moved on. When once upon a time, a foreigner was from Scotland… Read more »

Sam Allardyce’s history tells us all we need to know about the future

When West Ham were relegated in 2010/11 with one game of the season remaining following the 3-2 defeat at Wigan Athletic, their Premier League status wasn’t the only thing they lost, as the clubs’ hierarchy dispensed with a the services of then manager Avram Grant immediately after the match.

If Sam’s days are numbered, who replaces him?

Opinions on Big Sam’s future have been somewhat divided of late. The hashtag #AllardyceOut has featured prominently from around Christmas time on social media.

Why West Ham should look to a familiar face to solve their problems

Saturday’s defeat against Palace prompted the old ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ chant from the Bobby Moore lower, and while I wouldn’t go that far – I think time has come for club and manager to part ways.
