"Needs to replace Kouyate", "Others, take note" – West Ham fans praise youngster’s FA Cup display

West Ham United produced a disappointing display in the FA Cup Third Round against Shrewsbury Town, drawing 0-0 with the League One side. And, in truth, the Hammers were outclassed by the minnows and were perhaps lucky to come away with a draw. David Moyes selected a squad which initially seemed like a good blend […]

Idle Thoughts on the FA Cup

I have, on a previous occasion, mentioned the story my Uncle Tommy used to tell, of the day, way back in the early 1930s, when, having finished his shift down the mine, he walked into Sunderland for the big match, paid his tanner to get in and, once inside, would have paid a shilling to get out again, such was the crush inside the ground as Sunderland recorded their biggest-ever attendance. The record books show…

West Ham star’s outstanding performance v Chelsea is a credit to Moyes

We’ve seen a number of improved players since David Moyes was appointed, which is a line I’ve already filed in ‘sentences I thought I’d never write.’ West Ham, as a team, look a lot fitter and lot more up for the relegation fight they played themselves in to during the early stages of the campaign, […]

Idle Thoughts on Leicester City

When West Ham entertain Leicester City on Friday evening, they will be renewing a rivalry that goes back a long way. Ninety-eight years, in fact, in which 128 matches have resulted in a quite evenly matched 51 wins for the Hammers and 47 wins for the Foxes. Leicester were founded, as Leicester Fosse, in 1884 and gained admission to the Football League ten years later. It was not until West Ham’s entry into the Football League for the 1919/20 season that the two clubs’ rivalry…

Idle thoughts on Watford FC

The last week has seen so much press and television coverage of the arrival of David Moyes as Hammers’ manager that it is easy to forget that the new man and his entourage have still to make their managerial debuts at the London Stadium. The Watford game would have had great significance even with Slaven Bilic still at the helm, so how much more so now, with all eyes focussed so intently, …

Idle Thoughts on the Managerial Merry-Go-Round

In reporting the sacking of Slaven Bilic, the ‘East London & West Essex Guardian’ noted that David Moyes was likely ‘to become just the Hammers’ 16th boss in 117 years’. The 15 previous managers have enjoyed an average of a little under 8 years in charge at West Ham, but, whilst mathematically correct, that figure does not give an accurate picture of the reality. Did any of those fifteen managers actually have anything in the region of eight years at the Hammers’…

‘The owners have a lot to answer for’ – West Ham’s Moyes appointment is not what fans deserve

David Moyes is the manager of West Ham United and there’s nothing we can do about it. The last 48 hours have been very difficult to take but how many of you can say you’re surprised. We’re back in familiar territory, in the bottom three and fighting for our Premier League status, but this time […]

The 12 minutes that should give Bilic no choice but to make West Ham decision

One debate that has been on the lips of many West Ham fans so far this season is whether Aaron Cresswell should be permanently replaced with Arthur Masuaku in the starting XI. Cresswell hasn’t been at his best since that injury he picked in pre-season last summer and he has really struggled to be the […]

Tactics: How West Ham must approach huge clash v Swansea

Idle Thoughts on Wembley

When I was complaining to my namesake James, in my local Paddy Power shop, about the Carabao Cup draw against Tottenham, he responded by pointing out that at least we’ll get to Wembley! Ah yes, Wembley. I’ve never been to the new Wembley, and it’s well over 30 years since I last went to the old Wembley. Suffering as I do from claustrophobia, I found any journey on the Underground to be…

Idle Thoughts: The No. 7 Shirt

Watching the game last Monday evening, I found myself thinking back to one of my favourite players of the 1960s, Alan Sealey. Sealey came to West Ham from Leyton Orient in March, 1961, in an exchange deal which involved Dave Dunmore going the other way. At the time, it seemed a strange arrangement. Dunmore was an experienced centre-forward who scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for the Hammers. At one point in…

Idle thoughts on the transfer window (and how football coped perfectly well without it)

There has been comment in the press recently suggesting that some managers would like the summer transfer window to be adjusted so that it closes before the new season is upon us. This seems to me to be a very logical proposal. Preparing for the first game of a season must surely be the top priority at any club, big or small, and continuing speculation as to transfers, in or out, cannot fail …

Southampton’s Charlie Austin crushes West Ham’s 10-man fightback

Charlie Austin snatched a stoppage-time winner from the penalty spot as Southampton beat 10-man West Ham United. Austin sent Joe Hart the wrong way as Mauricio Pellegrino clinched his first win as Southampton manager in dramatic crescendo. After going two goals behind, Javier Hernández had rolled back the years with two poachers finishes to very nearly get the Hammers off the hook. Southampton had sailed into a two-goal lead, thanks to Manolo Gabbiadini and a Dusan Tadic penalty, before West…

The West Ham U21s who have done more than enough to earn a first team thumbs up from Bilic

West Ham United endured a frankly embarrassing start to the season when they slumped to a 4-0 loss against Manchester United. The Hammers were never really in the game and severely missed the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Cheikhou Kouyate and Michail Antonio. One of the few shining lights, though, was the performance of youngster Declan […]
