West Ham striker Carroll can force way into England’s World Cup squad, says Hammer Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell believes a rich run of form for West Ham could hand striker Andy Carroll a place in England’s World Cup squad next summer.

Injury-prone Carroll is poised to lead the line for Slaven Bilic’s charges when…

Are the boos as bad as they first appear?

I’ve seen a lot of comments on social media suggesting that those who booed West Ham this weekend against Swansea are “plastic fans” and didn’t deserve to go to the game and back the team. How can they be plastic fans? I have only been a season ticket holder at the club for five years and over the past few games it has been perhaps the most frustrating to watch West Ham play. Our excuse last season for …

Reasons to be cheerful

I was honestly never that optimistic that I’d be sat here writing a first post season kick off article laden with superlatives about our performance at Old Trafford. Even with the undisputable strengthening of the squad that has taken place in recent weeks, it was always going to be an uphill battle from minute one, and so it proved. One thing I was hopeful of, which proved to be in vain, was that the clubs support would acknowledge the good…

Sullivan excited over Hart arrival and injury update

Things are really beginning to hot up as far as our pre-season is concerned with some exciting transfer activity confirmed and our first 2 friendlies successfully negotiated. After weeks of speculation that we were a club with no money, Joe Hart finally became our 2nd acquisition from Manchester City this week with a 1 year loan deal agreed. Apparently there is no clause that allows us to make the signing permanent, which means that after 12 months, Hart could conceivably walk …
