More Than One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest!

There is much to question within our world and more that confuses, leaving people wondering if whatever they are hearing or seeing is actually real. Are we the confused ones or are there conspirators in our midst that would blur the lines to keep the truth from emerging? My paranoia has taken hold! “Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence, …

The Hammers Loan Report: Championship Joy For Burke And Cullen As Snodgrass’ Villa Falter And Oxford Is Left Frustrated In Germany

As domestic football finally made its return after The International Break, it is that time of the week again to check in with our Hammer loanees at their various clubs both in England and across the continent. It would be a joyful weekend at last for Reece Burke and Josh Cullen but quite the opposite for Robert Snodgrass and another dull Sunday for Reece Oxford in Germany. Reece Burke and Josh Cullen (Bolton …

Throwback Thursday: 1965 European glory in Claret and Blue

In this week’s edition of our weekly throwback segment we speak to Bill, 62 and a lifelong Hammers fan about European success in Claret and Blue. “All of my family are from the East End and are West Ham fans so naturally I followed suit and at a very young age and became a Hammer. However, my very first experience of watching my heroes was not to be at The Boleyn Ground. At the tender age of ten on…

West Ham Lions 1 Tottenham Antelopes 0

Where the hell did that come from? OK, we played reasonably well at Stoke and defended well against Everton, but can anybody honestly say they saw us winning so comfortably? 1-0 may not sound like a pounding but had decent chances been converted, we would have run out 4-1 winners; and that scoreline would not have flattered us! The chances missed? Kouyate should have netted after Lloris blocked off Lanzini; Calleri should have buried the chance he…

FAN’S VIEW: Positives even in defeat at Newcastle United

On Saturday it’s safe to say I wasn’t a very happy Hammer. The team were slow to get out of the blocks and Newcastle cUnited apitalised by scoring two goals early on.

The Adventures of Allardyce in Sunderland

Allardyce was beginning to get very tired of sitting in the shadow of his own ego outside the bank, and of having nothing to moan about: once or twice he had peeped into the book of tactics his replacement was writing, but it had no pictures of long balls in it, ‘and what is the use of a book about passing,’ thought Allardyce, ‘without pictures of the route one ball?’ He was considering in…

West Ham 1 Newcastle 3 – Carroll thinks he’s playing for Newcastle!

Oh dear. Second half we were so much better, but in the first half the Geordies played us off the Upton Park. On came Morrison and, belatedly, Carroll after a lucky goal in the last minute of the first half, and suddenly Newcastle were on the back foot. First Taylor delivered a delicious cross from the right (with his right foot) and with Carroll not yet on the pitch, Carlton managed to slice wide of an open goal. Miss of the season contender one. Then Downing took the ball …

Half Time West Ham 1 Newcastle 2 – Skin of Teeth Time

Well we are still in it, but God knows how! Newcastle completely dominated the half and but for two Adrian saves, some poor finishing and half a dozen last ditch blocks, we could have shipped six or seven. Then, on the stroke of half time, Rat showed Jarvis how to cross, Carlton chest controlled the ball into Williamson’s path, and with his keeper on the deck, the Newcastle man supplied a clinical finish to bundle the ball over the …

Mark Noble Epitomises Bulldog Spirit at Upton Park

It was good to hear Hansen singing a West Ham players praises on MOTD for a change. Usually it’s all about how our centre halves are too far apart, how we can’t defend set pieces, how the position of our keeper is all wrong at a free kick and how detached our lone striker is. So for Hansen to say that he would be surprised if ANY player performed better this weekend than Noble at Cardiff, then we should sit up and take notice…

Scrapper Allardyce Rallies The Troops Brilliantly

Damn the man! We hate him. And hate him with good reason. He is a tactical Neanderthal. He is arrogant. He is coarse and crude and belligerent. But bugger him, just when you think you have him down and defenceless, he grabs your foot in mid kick and flips you over backwards! Let’s get one thing straight. Greenwood would not have won today’s game after a 5-0 and 6-0 hammering. Nor would Lyall. Nor Bonds. Nor …

West Ham to offer free seats to all fans until the end of the season

With every West Ham fan in the land weeping in humiliation, joint chairmen and owners David Gold and David Sullivan are rumoured to be planning to offer free seats at Upton Park to everybody wearing a Claret and Blue scarf until the end of the season. Speaking after the 6-0 reverse at Manchester City,  a source close to Mr Gold explained: “We really can’t ask the fans to pay to watch this crap any longer.” “It’s bad enough that they have been spending hard earned …

Allardyce Genius Vindicated in Manchester Rain

Half time and it’s only 3-0. That proves the genius of Big Sam. He sacrificed the kids to save the big guns for this one, and look at how well we are doing! The decision to pick Adrian again was especially inspired. The guy is clearly bolted to his line and is a rabbit in the headlights of the Unreal City players as they pour into our box. Just what McCarthorse and Johnson’s Polish need behind them! Carlton’s on…

Enough is enough, sack Allardyce NOW!

No pressure game? Cobblers. this must be the last straw that breaks the camel’s back surely. Today was utterly and completely disgraceful and shameful. Never mind playing kids, the team played without pride, without spirit, without organisation and without shape. And who is to blame for that exactly? Sullivan and Gold now have to act. If Allardyce can’t motivate the likes of Jarvis and Downing to put in a shift – and neither broke sweat all afternoon despite sharing the armband – then what …

HT Nottingham Forest 1 West Ham 0 – We’re shite and we know we are!

So the first eleven are crap, the squad players are crap, and the kids are crap too it seems based on that first 45 minutes.  If this is anything like the team we will field in the Championship next season, then we will fall straight through the division! Mind you, the kids aren’t the worst players on the pitch! Look at Jarvis yet again! Time and again he has been one on one with the full back, and time and again he has failed to beat his …

If Redknapp is the answer, it’s a bloody silly question!

Well ‘Arry’s 100% record in 2014 was exploded with a vengeance at Goodison. After the narrow and late, late victory over little Donny, hope surged through the veins of the gRRRRs, but with England’s 666, Robert Green, rested, ‘Arry’s boys folded like an England cricket team in Australia. The gulf in class was huge: bloody hell, Jelavic scoring twice in a game is akin to club cricketer Smith scoring centuries in back to back tests against Anderson …

Allardyce Offers Still More Lame Excuses

Well, come the end of the day, the result wasn’t as disastrous as it could have been, thanks to every other result going in our favour, including the draws. Hull Tigers are showing what we could be achieving with a half decent squad but, of course, we haven’t got one. So Allardyce has hit the excuse button yet again. Now there’s a surprise! This time it’s the injuries, the lack of recovery time and the fans that are to blame. The injuries that have …

Outclassed and into the bottom two! Blame Allardyce!

I haven’t had a chance to listen to Allardyce’s whinges yet, having just got back from the game, but it’s a pretty safe bet that he is bemoaning missed chances, injuries and silly mistakes. What he will almost certainly not say is: “We are second from bottom and rightly so. Our football has been shit for most of the season and there’s no point in me moaning about missed chances because I have constructed a squad of players …

Sullivan excited by Nigerian deal

A transcript has emerged of the telephone call which alerted West Ham to the availability of ex Sunderland striker Asamoah Guyan, courtesy of a company working for Tottenham Hotspur: Voice down phone : Hello?

Manchester United 1 West Ham 1 – Let’s ignore the first 45 minutes!

Well it could have been much, much worse. A goal down far too early and two goals behind at half time, the clever money was on the Mancs to run in four, five or six. But credit where credit is due, we maintained our effort levels and actually drew the second half 1-1. To be honest, with Rooney pulling the strings brilliantly, we were always up against it. If only injury had kept him on the side lines, we might have come away…

After his Tottenham goal, can Maiga deliver at long last?

For 18 months the guy has looked pretty bloody hopeless but, following his match winning goal against Spurs and sparkling all round performance after coming off the bench, there is the hope that he may be about to deliver. True it was only against Spurs, and even Vaz Te and Jarvis can score against Spurs this season, and true one goal does not a Premiership striker make, but confidence is such a…

Half Time Tottenham 0 West Ham 0 – Backs to the wall stuff!

Well, that’s another payday for anybody who bet against West Ham scoring in the first 45, but credit where credit is due, Allardyce’s team of stiffs has defended stoutly thus far. Spurs have had chances, but not many, and Collins, McCartney, Diarra, O’Brien and Rat have been chucking themselves in front of shots and crosses as if their lives depend upon it. Anybody who wants Allardyce sacked should think about how committed this bunch of players are – until they go behind…

Allardyce shows contempt for fans with selection of a team of stiffs

Ok, he doesn’t have many options, but why the hell are Taylor, Adrian and Diarra starting? I know some regard the Capital One Fan Cup as a nuisance distraction, but we are playing Spurs for pity’s sake, and we are one win away from a place in the semi-final. The team screams confused priorities. If we are saving players for the weekend – and what’s the point of that given …

West Ham face Financial Fair Play penalties as new striker is lined up

So, Allardyce is in “advanced talks” with an unnamed striker and is trying to thrash out a deal with the player’s agent and his club. Great. The trouble is, it’s three months too bloody late! According to Allardyce, owner David Sullivan is “the quickest owner of a football club I have ever had. He doesn’t ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and ‘um’ like most of the other owners I have been involved with”; which is a bit rich given an…

West Ham could re-appoint Watford’s Zola and Steve Clarke

With Watford losing their fifth home game on the trot and West Brom sacking Steve Clarke, the tantalising prospect of re-uniting the management dream team at Upton Park has become an outside possibility. Many West Ham fans believe that Zola has unfinished business at the Boleyn and absolve the lovable Italian of any blame whatsoever for the decimation of the half decent team that Curbishley handed over when he …
