Where Are They Now?: The Fondly Remembered

Christian Dailly 2001-2008 Scottish International Dailly was signed by West Ham in 2001, and was ever present in the side that finished 7th in the 2001-2202 season. Dailly remained in the side through relegation and the two years spent in the Championship scoring the winning goal in the play-off semi-final against Ipswich in 2004. Dailly’s influence waned through his later years with the club but the fans always appreciated his hard work and honesty. Dailly left the club in 2007 and …

Scout Report: Olivier Giroud

The West Ham / Olivier Giroud link has been rolling on for much of the summer already and it is not going away. This could be good news for Hammers fans as the club look to fill their problematic striking position. West Ham have already been linked with other forwards so far during the summer window but have seen them move elsewhere. Of the players profiled in past editions of this column Henry Onyekuru has recently …

Worst XI: Left Midfield

Joey Beauchamp 1994 0 Apps 1994 Signed from Oxford for £1.2 Million Beauchamp was one of the more sort after players in the lower leagues and as such West Ham regarded his signing as something of a coup. The signing was a disaster for both the club and the playerending in the club transferring him to Swindon for £800,000, incurring a £400,000 loss. Then manager Billy Bonds speaking some years later said of Beauchamp “He said he couldn’t settle at West Ham, that the…

Loans: What’s The Point?

Down the years, our Football Club has lent it’s name to such tags such as the “Academy of Football” and while we have produced players like Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand in the last 20 years, what have we really produced in the last ten? Is our shambolic policy of loaning out any future prospect we may have to blame? Since defender James Tomkins successfully came through the ranks and graduated into the first…

Throwback Thursday: Wembley Glory In The Modern Era

In this week’s edition of our weekly throwback segment, we speak to Tim, 56, a lifelong Hammers fan and season ticket holder about a bit of Wembley glory in the modern era. “Being a West Ham fan for the last 40 years means that trips to Wembley are unfortunately few and far between. However, having Claret and Blue blood meant that I wouldn’t have it any other way and if I was given my life over and over again, I…

Where Are They Now?: 80s Stars

Mark Ward 1985 -1990 Signed from Oldham in 1985 for £250,000 as a replacement for the departing Paul Allen, Ward played every game in the 1985-86 season which saw West Ham finish 3rd in the top flight. A strong busy right sided midfielder, Ward had an edge to go with his guile and his gutsy determined performances made his a popular player with the fans in the late 80’s. Ward left for Manchester City in 1990 as …

At a Glance: The Hammers’ 2017/18 Fixture List

This morning the Premier League fixtures were released and I was eager to see what hand we had been dealt for the forthcoming season. Fingers were crossed for a generous start, nice weather fixtures against the seaside clubs and most of all a decent run in. Sadly, I was disappointed on all three counts! The opening day fixture away against Manchester United gives me mixed feelings. It will add to our list of walk in the park, opening …

Scout Report: Henry Onyekuru

West Ham are one of a number of clubs who are reportedly interested in young Nigerian winger Henry Onyekuru and the club are thought to be ready to table a second bid.

West Ham’s Summer Cleaning

Last season saw a number of questionable transfers as a result of both a poor summer and January window. Players such as Nordveit, Fernandes, Snodgrass, Fletcher and Fonte arrived and did little to impact the team. That’s not even mentioning the likes of Arbeloa, Tore or Calleri. This has left us with an awkward situation in that we have a number of year-old players that could be shown the door in the coming months. Having a look at the …

Transfer Rumours – Goalkeepers

Now that we are officially in the twilight zone, in other words, pre “pre-season” mode, it’s time to look at the many West Ham transfer rumours currently doing the rounds. It should be said that this is officially “silly season”, a period in which deals are very seldom done and which therefore gives journalists carte blanche to make up any old rubbish in the hope that it might sell a few papers. Sifting through …

Hammers to dip into Continental Europe this summer

Oxford off to Germany? According to reports from The Mirror, we are set to offload young defender Reece Oxford to Borussia Monchengladbach on a season long loan. The 18 year-old burst onto the scene early in Slaven Bilic’s first season as our boss, making early Europa League appearances before making his Premier League debut, starting in our 0-2 win over Arsenal in August 2015.

Greatest XI: The Goalkeepers

Frank’s First Season Top 5s: Do you Agree?

West Ham’s win against Burnley capped off our 2016/17 Premier League campaign. Although it was considered a bad season we actually haven’t fallen that far… table wise anyway. Four places below our last seasons finish and for the second time in consecutive seasons, we have finished above last season’s Champions. However, for me, this season has been my first as a season ticket holder and our first season at the London Stadium so it will…
