Remember The Alamo? No Nor Do We! 

Can you remember a time when our Latino air filled bladder kickers took the league siege and spared no mercies in front of goal? We had such high hopes for Pablo Barrera who failed to shine whilst Guillermo Franco didn’t really fill our cups to the brim either. In the summer we thought we had made the coup of the century by signing our very own Javier Hernandez…yes Mr Chicharito himself. The product of …

Running on Empty & Gorging on Fluff!

“Here we are, born to be kings, we’re the princes of the universe. Here we belong, fighting to survive in a world with the darkest powers” – Queen I’ve had a theory for a while now that West Ham have been running on the margins and are in desperate need of recentring but have lost their way. David Moyes has to be given a lot of credit thus far for producing results and performances out of a squad that’s as …

Carry On Catenaccio 

Oh what a carry on! What a laughable set of circumstances that would make our journey to the end of the season fraught with danger and pessimism. We are on a one way street to defensive football, a one dimensional success but will fail to entertain the fans or any smirking onlookers either. I can foresee a fanbase getting increasingly frustrated with the type of football they will witness. There will be social media lynch mobs verbalising …

The Tortugan Pirates

Long gone the days when a football team would be littered with boys from the local area and owned by fully committed likely lads. English teams flirted with overseas players with some exceptions to mostly dire performers who failed to hit the high note. Anyone remember Alberto Tarantini who signed for Birmingham City in the 1978 after winning the World Cup with Argentina? I do…barely! He was supposed to bring us football fans a taste of foreign flair but all…

I’m The Boss: Give the Cup Priority!

I’m not going to lie, I am very worried about Saturday. Wigan are flying, top of League One and full of confidence and West Ham, while on a good run, are in Harry Redknapp’s parlance down to the bare bones. The injuries to Lanzini and Arnautovic are bitter blows at this stage of the season combined with the injury issues for Andy Carroll and the uncertainty around Hernandez and Sahko’s future. West Ham’s striking options …

Corporate Juntas & Mariah Careys

The hum now forgotten and replaced by an indignant shrill from an advancing mob…pitch forks in hand, flamed torches burning the night air…ready for a lynching whilst the onlookers stand bemused and popcorn fed. The so-called protectors of our realm have been caught napping whilst we have struggled to defend against neighbouring invaders. We had been weakened by plagues, pestilence and impoverished performances, yet they did not unshackle the iron gates giving access to the caches of gold. As West Ham…
