Arsenal 3-1 West Ham – Live commentary

The last time we went to the Emirates we were spanked 5-1, despite seeing Jack Collison give us the lead. That seems like an age ago now, particularly with all the problems we had over the festive period. The last few weeks have indicated that we’re beginning to show just how good we can be,… Read more »

Proposed starting XI v. Arsenal

With Kevin Nolan having a late fitness test and potentially having to sit tonight out, Sam Allardyce could be forced to make some changes to the XI that played so well against Liverpool last weekend. Mohamed Diame or Antonio Nocerino should be drafted in to deputise for Nolan, which should give Matt Jarvis his place… Read more »

Arsenal v West Ham – Premier League Preview

Whether you think we’re safe yet or not, the likelihood of us being caught now is extremely minimal. That said, the likelihood of us getting a positive result at the Emirates tonight are almost just as minimal, despite Arsenal’s current form and injury problems. With little else to worry about other than the highest possible… Read more »

How Carroll and Nolan changed our season

The Second Half of The Season : How Nolan and Carroll’s Resurgence Changed Everything For much of the season and certainly through the dark times that came directly after the 0-3 victory at White Hart Lane many fans have taken to calling for Big Sam’s head and questioning every decision from the playing of Kevin Nolan and Ravel Morrison, to player positioning, to the signings of Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll. Without a doubt though much of the ire of fans has been …

Does winning ‘ugly’ give West Ham the perfect platform to improve?

With another three points in the bag after another scrappy, ugly win away to Sunderland, we find ourselves in 11th place on 37 points. It would take a monumental effort for the likes of Fulham, Sunderland and Cardiff to overtake us now, so our season is pretty much finished. We’re just waiting for the fat lady to sing. Our… Read more »

VIDEO: West Ham’s crossbar challenge for Soccer AM and Sport Relief

West Ham took part in Soccer AM’s crossbar challenge this week in aid of Sport Relief and the video, as expected, is hilarious.

Kevin Nolan nails Moncur for ‘selfie’

As the ‘selfie’ continues its rise towards internet stardom, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing a fairly unique entry from one of our youth prospects. George Moncur posted a picture of himself on Instagram last night, claiming that he was doing a spot of late night thinking. That’s fine, we all do it but, the… Read more »

Match Preview: Stoke City v West Ham

West Ham’s four game winning streak came to an end at Goodison Park a couple of weeks back so the Hammers will be looking to get back on track at the Britannia on Saturday. It seems like an age since West Ham last played and hopefully the players have put the defeat at Goodison Park… Read more »

Will we ever be happy?

So the inevitable bump back to “terra Firma” finally happened on Saturday, as an unlikely away point at Goodison Park was snatched away from us in the 81st minute by Everton substitute Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku has acquired a very annoying habit of scoring against us, by the way. His debut goal for Everton pinched a… Read more »

Goal of the Month: Who gets your vote?

February saw us hit a run of form that looked almost impossible during the turn of the year, picking up four consecutive Premier League wins. And a few of the nine goals we scored in the process were ones to treasure, particularly from Kevin Nolan, who bagged five of them. And there were even some… Read more »

Is this how our season will end up?

After what can only be described as a fantastic February, which saw West Ham take a total of twelve points from a possible twelve, most fans find themselves looking up the Premier League table instead of down it. With just eleven games to go until the end of the season, we are within touching distance of the… Read more »

The non-existent suspension period

The Swansea game seems like a long time ago now, and it won’t ever be forgotten due to the antics of Flores. When Carroll got sent off, the majority of fans felt that the next 3 games we could win, would become a little harder and we could look back on that as the downfall of the season but it has turned out to be the opposite. The last 3 games have been amazing and I didn’t expect the wins. Especially …

Have we finally turned the corner?

After conceding fourteen goals without reply in three cup matches, and scoring just two goals in the league since New Year’s Day, few could have foreseen the run of results West Ham have had since travelling to Stamford Bridge at the end of January.

Anyone else got a nose bleed? After four games unbeaten, three wins on the bounce and four clean sheets in a row we now found ourselves in 10th place.

Captain Fantastic

I have written about Kevin Nolan so many times this season and he’s been the hot topic of conversation all season, unfortunately not for the right reasons most of the time. He’s now scored 4 goals in the last 2 games, and that’s 2 with Carroll and 2 without and that’s our captain that the majority of fans love. Once again he was man of the match voted by the fans on Twitter, which is great to see because we all know that’s what…

The Carroll and Nolan partnership

Carroll’s sending off will be a massive blow for us and a decision that will be remembered at the end of the season no matter what. However before that happened we saw the thing all fans have been waiting for. Nolan and Carroll were once again running around defences and together were unstoppable; it was the best they have both performed all season. Nolan has been criticised more than most this…
