Fonte reckons he will come good for West Ham under coach Bilic’s stewardship

West Ham defender Jose Fonte believes he will flourish under the stewardship of Hammers boss Slaven Bilic. Fonte says he has much to learn from his current manager given that he, too, played in the heart of central defence during his career. Bilic recruited Portugal ace Fonte in January from Southampton for a fee believed to be in the region of £8million but has only tasted victory once in his six outings for the London…

Is Slaven super or just stubborn?

‘Super’ Slav has been much under the spotlight this week following our last gasp defeat to out of form Bournemouth. Many criticized his decision to continue with Kouyaté in our right back position. However, Kouyaté’s debut in the position helped earn the Hammers a win away at Southampton. Our goal difference since Kouyaté has played at right back is also +1, so does Slav have a point? It is clear that Bilic is looking for a …

West Ham defender Winston Reid has told fans critical of recent performances that they shouldn’t doubt just how hard the players work in training. The Hammers have lost two Premier League matches on the spin; at home to Chelsea and then at Bournemouth on Saturday, on the back of two draws against West Brom and Watford. And some supporters have bemoaned the form of Slaven Bilic’s side given that they have taken just two points from a possible 12. But vice …

The West Ham United Loan Report

Enner Valencia – Everton Valencia spent the 3-0 home win over West Brom on the bench. A defensive change at half time and the fact that Everton looked like comfortable winners in this game likely meant that he was not called upon. Tony Martinez – Oxford United The forward only played a total of 17 minutes over Oxford’s two games this past week but he did manage to score once in that time. He was introduced with…

Is it the beginning of the end for Mark Noble?

Stating the name Mark Noble to a fellow West Ham 3 years ago would usually be greeted with a smile and two crossed arms to symbolise what the man behind the name meant to us. Now, however, if you uttered the same name, you can expect to be frowned at and told that he is “past it”. Being a young Hammers fan growing into the game of football, Mark couldn’t have found himself in…

Bilic needs to be doing more than putting square pegs in round holes

The weekend’s defeat at Bournemouth once again exposed the very real problem of Bilic using players in positions that they are neither used to playing or indeed capable of doing so. Kouyate at right back is the most obvious of these. Without doubt one of the best players at the Club, Kouyate is a box to box midfield player, not afraid to take on his man, he provides a real thrust and …

32 is the Magic Number

Everyone loves a new striker turning up at their club.

Pearson Previews West Ham’s Premier League weekend (and the FA Cup too)

West Ham United travel to face Bournemouth this weekend with a draw being enough to move them into the top half of the league. Bournemouth on the other hand need to pick up points before they slide closer to the bottom three. The Hammers have scored 13 goals in their last seven games and face a defence which will be missing key players through suspension. Goal difference could be important going forward and a three goal victory would move them into 9 th place…

Big guns eye Michail Antonio but striker wants to focus on West Ham’s trip to Bournemouth

Michail Antonio may be the focus of attention for some of the big-spending Premier League clubs, who are said to have an eye on a potential summer move for the in-form attacker. But the Hammers star has a single-minded attitude to his football, seemingly; he is setting his sights on scoring for the cause in the top flight trip to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

Time to do the Noble thing?

In a season of such contrasts, the form of our Club captain Mark Noble is surely one of the most notable. Last season we collectively called for an England call up for our leader and yet, this season, such a call up would seem to be a distant dream for the Canning Town boy. In fact, if he continues to play the way he is, he could well end up joining Ray Winstone as a face…

Darwen looks to reinstate the “identity”

The new, unknown, West Ham manager Chris Darwen has reason to be feeling somewhat smug as we meet in his plush training ground office. Seven points from his first three Premier League games in charge plus a successful navigation to the Europa League group stages suggest that Darwen might surprise a few of the naysayers in the international media. Since accepting the offer from Sullivan, Gold and Brady to follow in the shortlived footsteps of Slaven Bilic, a…
