Pearson’s Premier League Roundup: Unbeaten run continues with another draw

West Ham picked up their third consecutive draw to make it an unbeaten run of four games. They are now on 39 points, one of eight sides separated by three points. The most recent draw was a goalless stalemate at Stoke. That point moved Stoke onto 40 points, but they are still one away from a place in the top half. One win in eight games has seen them slide down the league and if this continues they could…

Talking Points and more from the draw at Stoke

Fans fume at woeful Calleri There is certainly no doubt that the board made their fair share of poor signings in last summer’s transfer window, but along with the departed Simone Zaza for many fans Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri has been one of the worst and yesterday many fans ran out of patience with the former Sao Paulo man. Calleri has enjoyed much more game time in recent weeks due the injuries sustained …

The raid was part of a huge Police operation in which 200 officers were deployed across England and France to investigate various fraud allegations.

Boss Billic urges West Ham stars to see off Stoke and confirm Premier League status

Slaven Bilic has reminded his West Ham players they still have the threat of relegation looming over them. That has to be in the inference from Bilic’s comments ahead of the Premier League clash at Stoke City tomorrow. The Hammers, who have gleaned five points from the past three Premier League games, are highly unlikely to go down as they sit in 14th position and are seven points clear of the drop zone. But the West Ham manager …

James Collins has challenged his team-mates to build on the creditable 0-0 draw with Everton and ignite a push up the Premier League table with a win over Stoke at the weekend. Slaven Bilic’s men gained a point from the stalemate against Ronald Koeman’s troops at the London Stadium, and they go to the bet365 Stadium on Saturday to take on Mark Hughes’ side.

Hammers have all but secured their place in the Premier League after a gutsy draw

Yesterday something amazing happened…Lukaku didn’t score against West Ham! In fact, he never actually looked like scoring. The credit for that must be given to our defenders and in particular our very own Ginger Pele. He was immense, and alongside the returning Winston Reid, we looked defensively sound. Now that’s something we haven’t been able to say much this season. It was a good performance with a much-depleted side. Let’s not get too carried away, Everton weren’t firing on all…

Main Talking Points from West Ham vs Everton

New defensive system successful in clean sheet There is no doubt that throughout the season our defence has been at the forefront of criticism in most of our poor performances, but yesterday was far from the case. With the key return of yesterday’s skipper Winston Reid, Slaven Bilic decided to opt with a three at the back system to try to contain the pace and power of the Everton attack and in particular Romelu Lukaku. The formation was a bold…

Key Statistics from the draw with Everton

Let’s start by taking by taking a look at the key statistics from our 0-0 home draw to the Toffees yesterday. Possession We were dominant in most areas of the action at the London Stadium yesterday, but unlike recent games possession wasn’t one of those areas. The visitors had the Lion’s share of keep ball with 59.3 percent possession to our 40.7 percent in the bore draw. However, we were largely regarded as the better side against Ronald …

Oh What A Difference A Year Makes

What a difference a year makes. This time last year, West Ham were within shouting distance of the FA cup semi-final and 4th place in the League.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs. The feel good factor was evident everywhere sure…

Pearson’s Premier League Preview: West Ham face an Everton side great at home, but bad away

Saturday sees West Ham host an Everton side which have failed to win any of their last five away league games. It is their home form which has seen Everton maintain pressure on the top six above. They can move back to 5th with a win in this game but would likely move back down once their rivals have played. West Ham have picked up four points from their last two games and have moved away from any relegation threat…

Pearson’s Premier League Roundup as Hammers can only draw with bottom club Sunderland

West Ham and Sunderland shared the points following their 2-2 draw at the Stadium of Light. It was a game in which the visitors led twice, only to be eventually pegged back by a 90th-minute equaliser. That result was only their second point’s return in seven games but was enough to move them 13th with a nine-point cushion over the bottom three places. Sunderland remain bottom but this was the first time they had scored…
