West Ham chief dismisses false exit rumours

West Ham’s board has remained largely unpopular for a number of years and the fans opinion dipped further after James Collins’ departure in recent weeks.

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 …

A final Boleyn goodbye to the incredible Mooro

Remembering Mooro today is so easy…because there’s barely a day of my life passes when I don’t. I was honoured that the man who was my greatest hero as I watched from the west enclosure back in the 60s later became a colleague and friend when I ghost wrote his weekly columns and match reports […]

Liverpool fans identify positive from West Ham loss and its hilarious

Four games. Three wins. Zero losses. Seven goals scored. I think it’s fair to say we’ve owned Liverpool this season, probably for the first time in any of our lifetimes.

When patient football becomes pointless football

I have no problem with patient football….to a point. Certainly it’s an awful lot better than hoofball which in the context of yesterday’s match against Southampton would have served us no better than the pass and “probe” (I use the word carefully) approach we adopted against a well drilled defence. Yes I understand the team […]
