All we ask for, passion

It’s nice to be writing something positive about West Ham for the first time in a while. The game at Cardiff gave the fans what they wanted to see, the players showing some passion and fight. Of course no one is saying one game will change everything but I’m hopefully that the performance will give us the boost we need to go on and try and climb the table because we have an extremely good run of games coming up and can get points out of most of them…

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…

West Ham United: Sam Allardyce angry with "irresponsible" Kevin Nolan

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce calls captain Kevin Nolan “irresponsible” after he was sent off against relegation rivals Fulham.

The reason I’m behind Big Sam

The reason I’m behind Big Sam Sam Allardyce is in the biggest blip of his West Ham career right now.  After two seasons of relative success, he finds his West Ham United team near the relegation zone, following a 1-0 defeat to fellow strugglers, Crystal Palace. I very doubt the pressure is going to get lifted this weekend with an Away trip to Anfield against a very much in form Luis Suarez and Liverpool.  We haven’t won at Anfield since 1963, …

We should have bought defenders

Foundations Defenders are the unsung heroes of football teams, without them no team can compete, no matter what the level of quality is elsewhere. For this reason, I have some questions: who builds a house starting with the roof? Let’s look at Arsenal, a side who last year came fourth in the Premier League, many writing them off for any chance of even a Champions League place this year, especially after losing their first game 1-3 to Aston Villa. You may point to the signing of Özil …

Where will our goals come from?

Please forgive me if this comes across as utter rubbish, but I’ve always wanted to get my point across about my beloved West Ham Football Club in a blog or even a book ever since I read The Legacy of Barry Green by Robert Banks! It’s a great book by the way. Anyway, I digress. So I’m hoping that this does that dream justice. So where shall I start? Perhaps with Saturday’s must win…

The Repair of West Ham United

A Humble Suggestion for The Repair of West Ham United Football Club Since Sam Allardyce unleashed a 4-6-0 on Tottenham at White Hart Lane that was ripe with creativity, strong on defense, and selectively aggressive on the attack we have, as West Ham fans, been subjected to a series of disastrous games that have left us fearing relegation questioning both the owners and the manager, and wondering what can be done to turn things around.  It turns…

Leave Kevin Alone

All I’ve seen on Twitter and social media over the last couple of weeks is people blaming Kevin Nolan for West Ham’s run of bad form, and yes he’s not in his greatest form at the moment and he defiantly plays best when he has a target man to play off of which is actually when the whole team plays best. That’s the way we have worked for years play around a target man like Andy …

Allardyce’s flawed substitution policy

Substitutions Watching West Ham over the last couple of seasons, and especially the last couple of weeks, I’ve noticed a pretty frustrating trend going on with the substitutions Big Sam is making week in, week out at West Ham, and this came to a peak at home to Villa last weekend, where some of the substitutions being made by Big Sam were really quite frightening. I’m only intending this as a quick rant at Allardyce’s…

Does Big Sam really see Nolan as vital?

Nolan- Does Sam really see him as vital I don’t think that it comes as a shock to any West Ham fan that Kevin Nolan retains his place in the starting eleven week after week. Not because of his blistering form or ability which we would crumble without; but his relationship with Big Sam. Many of us would not be surprised to learn that the pair are related. The sad truth is…

Well, that was the Plan

Well, that was the Plan…but what next? I’ll be honest; I never thought it would happen. Sam unveiled his spectacular Plan B, and it has worked. 4 points from the last 3 games is a fantastic return considering the opposition we’ve faced. Even the most optimistic of fans would have probably predicted just the one point. The old tactical genius that is Big Sam pulled a masterstroke against Spurs. It worked well against Swansea, but the notion of…

Why I feel Noble is the problem

Due to the difficult start to the season West Ham fans have all had their own opinion of how we can make it better and who is to blame. Every fan has different views on what players haven’t done great for the team in the last few games. Our focus has been on the midfield because there isn’t much to talk about up front and our defence is solid as usual. …

We need to talk about Kevin

We need to talk about Kevin…. During my previous article discussing Sam’s inability to revert to a plan B, I made the statement that we needed to look at the players we had available and work out the best way to utilise the players – and with the likes of Cole and Downing available again for the Hull game, it’s a sentiment I strongly believe in. Yet, sentiment may well be the very reason why so many of us are failing to ask the killer question. Does…
