I’m The Boss – Keep Together, Keep the Faith

West Ham travel to Brighton this weekend looking over their shoulder at the relegation battle that they are just about out of at the moment. Tuesdays performance was encouraging, again the team showed great heart coming from behind to draw against an inform Palace team who were very unimpressive despite the attacking talent they had at their disposal. Joao Mario was impressive in his first game and Noble and Kouyate were …

Martin & Joanna’s Wedding

The last time I tasted FA Cup glory as a supporter was in 1980. My nuts hadn’t even dropped, now it seems like everything else has. I got married on Saturday 20th May 1995. Everything was booked the year before. Church, reception, flowers cars and all that, then it dawned on me FA Cup final day. I’d half joked to my fiancé Rachel that it might be tricky with the cup. Our fears…

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 …

How to fight Clubber Lang?

When Bruce Lee was laid out in hospital after suffering an injury during a fight, he started to formulate a plan to show the world there could be a different and more effective way to challenge and beat an opponent. Akin to Sun Tzu – Art of War, he developed Jeet Kune Do; a non-classical style of fighting that has minimal movement but maximum effect. One of the fighting philosophies handed down from this style…

I’m the Boss: Anyone for a game?

So, our worst fears came true, West Ham were completely outplayed by the League 1 leaders and the problems only further compounded by a nasty looking injury to Obiang and a 6 game ban for Masuaku following his sending off. The reaction to the defeat seems either to be complete apathy (not bothered about the up anyway) or blind fury (Moyes out, the Board out etc). Let’s be clear, Moyes did not save many for Tuesday mainly because he couldn’t. We face so …

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 …

What’s the first rule of Relegation Fight Club?

You know it and you dare not even whisper it. You don’t talk about relegation fight club…even though that fight is never far away. The revolution under Moyes would see our overall performances improve, results that grant us valuable points to pull us clear of danger and dares to suggest fights for survival are for impoverished street urchins where all hope is lost. Like a red-headed Pitt and Norton combination of Tyler Durden, Moyes has stood proudly over…

A fine bottle of Claret on a Blue Danube!

When the Austrian composer; Johann Strauss II composed ‘The Blue Danube’ in 1866, he had hoped for a greater reception from its first performance. On reflection he initially rebuffed with an indifference but after a reworking was able to finally realise its true potential and received high praise. Our Austrian composer also started with similar indifferent performances and the crowd looked quizzically upon a player of reputation but of little substance. Then came a reworking…inspired, influenced and dictated …

I’m The Boss: A tough trip but 3 points needed

West Ham head to West Yorkshire to face Huddersfield on Saturday with an air of positivity following a good run of results through the festive period, which has seen the club pull itself clear of the relegation zone. Sunday’s draw against Shrewsbury was forgettable, many players looked exhausted after the busy Christmas schedule and while Shrewsbury created very little, West Ham were lucky to come away from Shropshire still in the competition.

Super Son Strike Cancels Out Obiang Magic In Wembley Derby Clash

Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min fired a late leveller to earn his side a draw in a rather one-sided London Derby at Wembley Stadium yesterday evening, locking together with local rivals West Ham United in a feisty affair. David Moyes’ Irons had, out of the blue, taken the lead with their first effort on goal in the 70th minute, an unbelievable hit from around 30 yards out from Pedro Obiang, giving France International goalkeeper …
