The Monkey and The Water Margin!

So much of my childhood was lost to dreams of other places and untouchable gains. The 1970s was a strange time to grow up…the 60’s had witnessed a cultural revolution and freedom of expression was the order of the day which butted up against convention and conservatism. There was supposed to be bright coloured days and flowers that powered the narrowing of social divide…but all I got was flared trousers, brown corduroys, power cuts and a TV that would allow my mind…

If only Che Guevara could see us now!

Viva La Revolución! Viva El Jefe…Viva Moyes! Are we starting to reconsider our early misgivings when Moyes was appointed as West Ham manager back in November last year? Are we now believing this man at the last chance saloon can actually take us onwards and upwards to where only eagles dares? It would be fair to say that whilst the race for our approval was less by hare and more…

Jelly Beans & Rice Pudding?

In the movie: ‘My Cousin Vinny’, Joe Pesci’s character talks about “The Yoots” when actually meaning “Youths” and just as he was initially misunderstood, I wonder are we misunderstanding ‘The Yoots’ within the West Ham United system? I’ve always been a steadfast advocate of youth development and bringing that talent forward into the first team. “If you’re good enough, you’re old enough!” After all, we are The Academy of Football aren’t we, but are we …

However, how did one of Germany’s greatest end up at Upton Park? Why did his time in East London end in sad circumstances? And where is he now? The technically gifted midfielder began …

Civil War

40 years not out, that’s how long I’ve been watching West Ham regularly., I’m not bragging, I’m not playing I’m a better fan than anyone else, just putting it there to show how much I have seen go before my eyes. Football is very different now to when i first watched it, I’m not sure it can be solely blamed on the birth of the Premier League in 1992 but since that day the top clubs have organised themselves business wise, they market themselves…

From Back To Front

Another day ticks by in the wait for the signature of Mr. Carvalho. The longer it takes the more I find myself wondering that if this is to be our last acquisition of the current window…is it the right one? He is a player of undoubted quality, by our standards a marquee signing up there with the already beloved Chicharito. He even fits the bill of a defense bolstering workhorse that we are so desperate for. But I look back …
