Wilfried Zaha’s 97th-minute goal ends West Ham’s resistance at Crystal Palace

The clock had ticked past the allotted minimum of six minutes of added time when the ball reached Wilfried Zaha deep on the left. Crystal Palace had given everything in their demented pursuit of an equaliser in the second half. Joe Hart had made save after astonishing save, including one from James Tomkins in the 91st minute, and they had hit the woodwork twice. They were falling agonisingly short. As Robert Madley prepared to blow for full time, a ninth defeat in…

Opposition View: West Ham v Crystal Palace

We welcome Crystal Palace to London Stadium on Saturday, which means we also welcome back Sam Allardyce. We rarely have much luck when it comes to facing up to former managers and, with all the mess that we’ve experienced this season, it’s understandable if you’re not confident that we can win the game. Palace are arguably […]

West Ham trio pay amateur Hammers a cheeky visit and it’s hilarious

Footballers must get used to playing in front of thousands of fans every week. But it must be pretty daunting for amateur players to play in front of professional footballers, even if it is just a few of them down the park. So you can imagine the looks on the faces of a team of

There’s only one worthy right-back, according to West Ham fans

Bringing Carl Jenkinson back for another season was one our main priorities in the summer. But it’s fair to say he’s not exactly enjoyed the best of seasons so far, and has rarely put in the kind of performances that impressed us so much last season. But during his absence against Arsenal on the opening

So what exactly is West Ham’s best defensive combination?

If you were to ask me at the beginning of the season what are best defensive pairing was I would have said Winston Reid Reid and James Tomkins, all day long.

After the international break Angelo Ogbonna will be close to a return to full fitness and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him go straight back into the team with defence the weakest part of the team at the moment, that therefore means that Slaven Bilic is left with a headache, who plays at right back? If you look on pure performance and clean sheets then James Tomkins should be playing at right back, despite it not being…

Same old West Ham, always injured!

It has been an extremely tough week for West Ham regarding injuries as trio Andy Carroll, James Tomkins and new signing Cheikou Kouyate suffered serious injuries during the pre-season match versus Wellington Phoenix. We’ll start with the rather smaller news as Senegalese Kouyate was maliciously stamped on in the first half against Wellington Phoenix but although the medical staff feared the worst at first, he managed to play on for the large duration of the match and performed well. Allardyce…

My nominations for Hammer of the Year

West Ham Award Nominations The main award is of course Hammer of the Year and all players are up for this, in my opinion there are 3 real contenders. Mark Noble, Adrian and Tonks and they would all be suitable winners but all for different reasons. In terms of Noble he has been the most consistent player this season who always gives 100% in every game he plays. Adrian has come into the team this year and has won over…

Why West Ham have the best defence in the league

West Ham the best defense in the league! Before anyone criticizes me for this article, if there was a competition for the best defense in the league, I would certainly argue that West Ham have a strong case. The stats certainly suggest so. We have conceded 34 goals this season, which is by no means bad. In fact it is the 9th best conceded total in the league. However our whole defense have been injured this year, so much so we have been…

A new year, a new hope

I often say West Ham never play two half’s the same, if we play well in the first half then we won’t play as good second half. More often than not that seems to be the case so as we are getting to half way through the season, I’m hoping we don’t play the same way as we have been doing and I think there is reason to be hopeful that we won’t. I know it keeps being delayed but Andy Carroll really shouldn’t be too far…

Who would strengthen our current squad?

As January Window Opens, let’s hope no Doors Close. If there is one thing that recent performances have shown us, it is that our squad is in desperate need of strengthening. Whilst I think its fair to say that we have a fairly strong first eleven – on the rare occasion that they’re all fit at the same time – it has become apparent that beyond the obvious starting line up, there is a serious imbalance in the squad. However, if the…

A player I would look to sign in the January window

A player I would look to sign in the January window With West Ham struggling this season, everyone has been quick to point out that we lack goals and that a striker is crucial in the coming window. This is something I totally agree with, we are missing the presence of Carroll up front and we can’t guarantee when he will be back, with a recurring ankle injury. However instead of pointing out the obvious in this …
