I’m the Boss: All we are saying is give pace a chance!

A trip to East Lancashire is next up for West Ham after the rather uninspiring win against Swansea last time out. Burnley have started the season well beating Chelsea and Everton away from home as well as earning creditable draws with Tottenham at Wembley and Liverpool at Anfield.

Slaven Bilic’s Modern “Academy Of Football”

Many Hammers may say that nowadays, the term “Academy Of Football” can no longer be used to describe our Youth System, with no products of notable talent being brought through the ranks in the last ten or so years. However, there is no doubting or questioning the rare and quite tantalizing Development Squad that we currently possess at The London Stadium, but who are they? Today, we look at the…

Idle Thoughts: The No. 7 Shirt

Watching the game last Monday evening, I found myself thinking back to one of my favourite players of the 1960s, Alan Sealey. Sealey came to West Ham from Leyton Orient in March, 1961, in an exchange deal which involved Dave Dunmore going the other way. At the time, it seemed a strange arrangement. Dunmore was an experienced centre-forward who scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for the Hammers. At one point in…
