Hammers targeting new boss? Bilic backed again and Fonte attempts to motivate

Fulham boss could be a target With pressure mounting on Slaven Bilic, the board could look to bring in current Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic should they sack Bilic in the summer. Even if the side can salvage a respectable finish to the season it has not been one without its difficulties at times. This was supposed to be the season where West Ham kicked on but for one reason or another it …

No mercy, West Ham! Boss Bilic ready to help relegate Sunderland from Premier League

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic may be the one inflicting relegation woe on another manager next week when the Hammers go to rock-bottom Sunderland in a Premier League encounter that may drive another nail in the Black Cats’ top flight coffin. Just days after escaping from the threat of being perilously close to the bottom three, Bilic’s side provide the opposition at the Stadium of Light against under-fire David Moyes’ outfit.

West Ham need to get back to basics

A win is a win and, make no mistake, our 1-0 victory against a very poor Swansea side was a huge result for the club. Whilst perhaps not deserving of the hype that built over the week leading up to the fixture, it was nonetheless a massive confidence boost for everyone concerned with West Ham, not least the players. The three points sees a healthy gap open up between us and the…

Pearson Previews the Premier League Weekend as West Ham must beat Swansea

West Ham are at home to Swansea this weekend in a game which is a must not lose for both sides. A victory for West Ham will all most certainly see them clear of any relegation trouble this season as they would be eight points ahead of Swansea.

Match Preview: West Ham United Vs. Swansea City

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog with the words “don’t panic yet”… Well, Christ. Now we can! This weekend’s game against Swansea is, without a doubt, the biggest game of our season. Both sides are struggling to find points and with only five points between the two and seven games left. This is, by all means, a six pointer. The Olympic stadium will need to be loud; despite holding its breath, to get the boys across…

Bilic still best boss to steer West Ham from dreaded drop zone, says Hammers legend Cottee

Slaven Bilic is the right man to steer West Ham away from the threat of relegation, according to Hammers legend Tony Cottee. Beleaguered Bilic watched his side slump to yet another defeat last night in a 3-0 loss against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. The visitors turned in a solid first-half display and went into the break at 0-0, looking as if they might cause the Gunners some problems with counter-attacks in the second…

Adrian to return? Randolph gets a 4 in the main Talking Points and Ratings from Arsenal 3-0 West Ham United

Hammers let down in all areas against rampant Gunners The defence has been held accountable for most of our defeats this season, but last night we were let down by our midfield and attack in addition to our back 4. Collins and Fonte endured another tough 90 minutes in just their second game together and the defence was not helped by the absence of Cresswell, all combined with the continuation of Sam Byram’s poor form at…

Uncertain times ahead as Hammers get dragged into relegation battle

Well, at least the end of the season is going to be interesting for us West Ham fans. I watched the 2-1 defeat to Hull yesterday, and half of me couldn’t believe we had just lost to one of the worst teams in the Premier League, while the other half insisted that this is West Ham and anything can happen. After every match, I give the players ratings out of 10. What is worrying is just how many…

1. Bone idle defensive display costs Hammers yet again Our biggest problem in our poor season so far is the way we have defended, both home and away, with yesterday being no different.
