Ball of confusion and the last saviour’s temptation

Those fans coming away from the match on Saturday at the London Stadium in which West Ham hosted Southampton, could hardly be blamed for harbouring a sense of bewilderment after witnessing such a display from the reps of the claret and blue. It was less a justification of doubting Thomas’s but rather a vindication of reality that much of the fans have come to terms with over the last couple of seasons. The sense of …

What can West Ham do against Chelsea?

When the new Premier League season started, I was rather hopeful in West Ham’s chances of proving that we are indeed a solid team to play against. However, as we started with poor results and even worse performances, I got ready to endure another difficult year as a Hammers’ fan. Generally speaking, we possess a rather talented team with a unique mix of exuberant youth players and more composed experienced ones. With a forward line-…

The beautiful game is beginning to reflect all that is ugly in society | David Goldblatt

Football is increasingly run by mediocre people infected by politics and commerce, yet fans still cling to it as a distraction from real life On 27 June 2016, four days after the EU referendum , England were beaten 2-1 by Iceland in the knockout stages of the European football championships. It was a remarkable display of collective paralysis and the corrosive consequences of fear. Nearly two years later, the country does not appear dissimilar: less than the sum of its …

Zorro, The Mysterons and Angel Delight

For the better part of this season and the last, I have yearned for players to rise to perform at their best and display a maturation of the potential we always hoped was there. Mostly, the fans have been disappointed with individual performances, certainly any peaks have spiked only for brief periods but flat lining again as the players and team failed to take stock and gather any kind of momentum. There were obvious failings in the last campaign, however Bilic …

Moore’s the Pitiful Display!

West Ham fans arrived at the London Stadium on Saturday last to spur on the team to better performance and result, to march in protest and to remember a fallen hero some 25 years past. It was meant to be so much Moore but the spectacle was anything but and it was hardly befitting his great memory. In all of the hullabaloo it seems many had forgotten what the day was supposed to be about. There were videos …

Why Can’t We Blame the Russians for Our Siberian Winter?

The blame game is the folly of those who would stand, stare and sneer without any inward reflection. The West Ham woes are a collection of failings that may have coincidental sources but none are so grand to be identified as solitary causes. “We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your…
