Toffees Thump Hammers On Moyes’ Return To Goodison

A barnstorming performance from David Unsworth’s Everton in the Interim Manager’s final game in charge at Goodison Park was enough to down David Moyes’ Hammers emphatically in his own return to Merseyside. On a night that belonged to one man and one man only, Wayne Rooney opened the scoring for the home side in the opening exchanges from the rebound of his own penalty before doubling that advantage a short while later. It would take a moment…

Wonderful Wycombe Down U23s To Finish Trophy Campaign In Style

A superb performance from Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe Wanderers was enough to condemn Terry Westley’s young Hammers to defeat in the final Checkatrade Trophy Southern Group C clash at Adams Park last night. The hosts first took the lead through Will De Havilland after 31 minutes, the visitors having squandered some superb opportunities before that, none more so than when Skipper Moses Makasi fired over from close-range. But, The Chairboys took their chances at the pivotal times in the clash as Sido Jombati…

Player Ratings: West Ham United vs Leicester City

It’s now time to analyse player performance in the wake of Friday’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Leicester City at The London Stadium, on a night where the performance improved drastically from recent weeks. Joe Hart: 6/10 It would be a very quiet Friday night indeed for the England shot-stopper as he had very little to do throughout the 90 minutes in Stratford, as the visitors only registered one shot on target aside from their opening…

Bite the bullet

As West Ham sit precariously in the bottom three is it time to face the facts and admit we’re not really up to Premier League standards. Years of yo-yoing between divisions looks on the cards unless there’s a quick upturn in fortunes. West Ham seem to be doing a predictable West Ham this season and screwing up at every opportunity. Needless sending offs, throwing away leads and sacking fans favourite Super Slav. I’ve come to the conclusion that relegation may …

Super Hornets Add To Hammers Misery On Moyes Debut

An impressive performance from Marco Silva’s Watford condemned David Moyes to a defeat in his 500th Top-Flight game and his first as Hammers Boss at Vicarage Road yesterday afternoon. It would be an exhibition in missed chances and under-par defender from his side, but the home team, to their credit, seized their opportunities going ahead first on 11 minutes through a neat finish from Will Hughes. That lead was then …

Daring Derby Drub Young Hammers In London Stadium Thrashing

Terry Westley’s U23s succumbed to an embarrassing 1-5 defeat to a rampant Derby County side in their PL2 Division One encounter last night, on what was yet another evening to forget in Stratford. Darren Wassall’s men were always in control of the affair, taking the game by the scruff of the neck after less than 30 seconds as Offrande Zanzala finished past Nathan Trott and the lead was doubled by Luke Thomas a short while after. Just before the break, Zanzala popped …

Is David Moyes the right manager for West Ham?

A lot of debate has been sparked by the exact question, is David Moyes a step backwards for West Ham? Personally, I think this has a sense of truth along with a sense of falseness in terms of where West Ham were when Slaven Bilic got sacked. David Moyes had what some people would say a good career while at Everton, getting Europa League in a few seasons as well…

Today, we attempt to answer that question as unpredictable as it may be and take a look back at his predecessor’s tactics plus, of course, Moyes’ own previous style of Football.

I’m the Boss: Makeshift defence v potent attack – Huge game for The Hammers

Liverpool are up next for West Ham and the strange atmosphere around the club refuses to dissipate. The positivity of the magnificent comeback against Tottenham was tempered somewhat by the loss of a two-goal lead at Palace. Michail Antonio received a huge amount of criticism for his failure to run the ball into the corner in the dying seconds of the game, Garth Crooks going as far as saying he should be made to train with the …

What a difference a week makes, following West Ham has its ups and downs and the last 7 days have seen both extremes.

West Ham lacked leadership, motivation and seemed devoid of any plan, these failings were only highlighted by Brighton who were fantastically organised, stuck…
