22-year-old midfielder could allow Pellegrini to replace Kouyate without spending a penny

Following the departure of Cheikhou Kouyaté to Crystal Palace, Manuel Pellegrini’s senior central midfield options are not an overwhelmingly exciting selection. Summer free transfer Jack Wilshere is an excellent coup, but Pellegrini’s options to partner him are ageing skipper Mark Noble, Pedro Obiang – who was in talks over a move to Sampdoria before Pellegrini reportedly […] The post 22-year-old midfielder could allow Pellegrini to replace Kouyate without spending a penny appeared first

West Ham season review: How did our midfielders rate out of 10 this year?

After finishing 7th and qualifying for the Europa League in the 2015/16 season, plenty was expected from the Hammers this year. However, it was a disappointing season judging by those high standards. A poor summer of recruitment held us back from progressing and the move to the London Stadium did not go quite as planned. […]

Has West Ham’s right-back solution been staring them in the face all along?

As players get older they tend to take on a much deeper role on the pitch so that their energy levels are reserved. We’ve seen this is many players over the years, more recently Wayne Rooney as he moved from striker to attacking midfielder. Could Mark Noble take on the role for the right-back position? […]

Two tactics West Ham should use to brush aside Southampton

Before we review the upcoming away encounter against Southampton, I feel duty bound to share a few sentiments that I think maybe pertinent to most West Ham fans at the present time. A recent posting at HITC discussed the poor form of our players in the last miserable drubbing against Manchester City, with specific focus on […]

An element of surprise – West Ham’s magnificent six

As the dust settles on one of the best games at the Boleyn Ground in recent memory, there are still many West Ham supporters who feel a little disappointed that we did not get all three points against Man City. All the more disappointing was when we saw Cheikhou Kouyate’s header rattle the cross-bar with the

Is Cheikhou Kouyate our main man?

Is Cheikhou Kouyate our main man? The early season plaudits have quite rightly gone to our star signing, Dimitri Payet. His start for the club has been nothing but impressive and bodes well for the season ahead. Throw in the performances of Diafra Sakho and Winston Reid, and the backbone of the team is looking good. But for me, Cheikhou Kouyate has been the main man. Playing just in front of Noble, his energy…

Is this how West Ham should line up against Man City?

Many will insist changing a winning side today would be a mistake. We’ve been superb recently, especially over the last two games where we’ve easily brushed aside QPR and Burnley. Confidence is high and there’s no reason why that should be disrupted. But City pose a completely different threat today. Their midfield is as dangerous… Read more »

Is this the strongest West Ham team for a while?

Since the transfer window has closed, several of our first team signings have had some game time and lived up to expectations of the fans, manager and the board. The likes of Sakho, Valencia and Amalfitano have all scored for the Claret and Blue already. Sakho has scored 3 goals in 3 matches so far, whereas Valencia has scored just the once but impressed every match he’s played in.

Hammers midfielder ruled out for six weeks

From day one we’ve known how much of a powerhouse Cheikhou Kouyate is. And he showed just how much of a machine in midfield he can be on Saturday when, with no subs available to to replace him, he played on with what was probably a torn thigh muscle (could be that, could be something… Read more »

MATCH PREVIEW: Hull v West Ham

With the match versus Hull City at the KC Stadium soon coming round, it would be in our best interest to look at our current injuries heading into the Monday Night Football match. Matt Jarvis and Andy Carroll are our only absences for the match so that is a boost as Morrison, Valencia, Song and a few others have all come back from not being 100% fit. Good news on the Andy Carroll front, as a …

West Ham’s midfield mystery

With the new signings West Ham have made in midfield and hopefully the return of Ravel Morrison fans are now left wondering who will be starting in midfield and how that will affect the formation we will play. Our main options are of course Mark Noble, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Alex Song, then in front of them, Ravel Morrison, Kevin Nolan and Mauro Zárate. Kouyate has been the stand out performer so far this season so he is highly unlikely to…
