Nous sons Les Miserables! 

Please allow me to introduce myself. I’m a man of wealth and taste. I’ve been around for a long, long years. Stole many a man’s soul and faith – Sympathy For The Devil – Rolling Stones. Ah yes, those unforgettable lyrics from Messrs Jagger and Richards were penned in 1968 and who knew that they would have the mirrored pertinence today and for all of our mighty woes?

Player Ratings: Watford vs West Ham United

Let’s analyse player performance from yesterday’s Vicarage Road disappointment, as David Moyes’ Hammers side remained in the bottom three heading into a very tough run of fixtures indeed. Joe Hart: 6/10 Fresh off the back of a clean sheet and positive performance for England against Brazil, the shot-stopper would continue his dismal club form with again with yet another afternoon to forget. Hart always looked as though he would be beaten when Marco…

Where Are they Now: Posh Boss and a Trailblazer

Grant McCann 1996-2003 Signed from Northern Irish side Lisburn Distillery in 1996, McCann found first-team chances severely limited during his time with the club making only four substitute appearances, his final game appearance was the 7-1 hammering at Blackburn Rovers in the early stages of Glenn Roeder’s tenure. McCann was perhaps unfortunate to have been vying for a midfield position with the likes of Frank Lampard, Michael Carrick and Joe Cole so it’s no surprise the Ulsterman found …

Idle Thoughts: 1923 and all that…

When the Hammers meet Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup, mention will inevitably be made of the first-ever meeting of the two clubs, the F. A. Cup Final of 1923. In the early 1970s, when I was working for one of the then ‘Big Five’ banks in the City of London, my office took on a one-off job that required a dozen or more temporary staff to come in and help. Those ‘temps’…

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.
