Chelsea interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham this month

• Striker, 29, would give Chelsea a different option up front • Loan deal possible for injury-plagued former England striker Chelsea’s eagerness to freshen up their forward ranks could prompt a renewed attempt to secure Andy Carroll from West Ham United before the end of the transfer window.

Idle Thoughts on how it all started

What causes us to develop an attachment for one particular football team in preference to another? Some will choose simply to follow their local team. The first people I remember as having any interest in football were my Dad’s cousin, Tony, and his father. Often we would visit my Aunt in Leytonstone on a Saturday afternoon and around about teatime, the pair of them would come home, having spent the afternoon watching Leyton Orient, whose ground was within walking distance. Another …

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…

Defence of a Noble Man

I feel the need to defend a Noble man. Mark Noble limped out of the pre-season friendly Saturday against Werder Bremen with an ankle injury, that though did not dampen the twitterrati attack on him by many West Ham fans for his performance in the first half of the 2-2 draw in Germany, many who it seems have short memories. No player should just be picked to play for the team on merit, but for me Noble if fit, should be the…

Why Are You Here?

We stand on a threshold. Whether you like it or not West Ham United is changing. The financial appeal of a London club that is so well supported for one with such a relatively small amount of success is undisputable. I have to believe that our owners are acting in reasonable faith. They are ultimately business folk, but with far more connection to their (our) club than the majority of the increasingly faceless dictatorial types that govern many of the great pillars…
