Were West Ham right to let Diame go?

It’s been just over a week since Mo Diame left West Ham for the orange and black stripes of Hull City. Since Mo Diame left, we all know what has happened. He has scored two good goals, one of which was against West Ham and the other was a screamer vs Tim Krul at a subdued St James’ Park. I don’t believe it is a bad move by Sam Allardyce and he soon replaced the …

MATCH REVIEW: Hull v West Ham

West Ham were going into the match having just won 1 match in their last four competitive matches, whereas Hull were slightly better in their results. West Ham lined up with a diamond formation as Valencia and Downing played very narrow at times and not stay on the wing as such. Nothing happened in the first 30 minutes of the match until Abel Hernandez headed it from 12 yards out. The Uruguayan only managed to play due to a last-day work permit which…

Diame should go in the summer

Diame should go in the summer Mohammed Diame has had a very different season to the last one. He has played well below what he is capable of and has often looked disinterested in games. With this in mind, I feel we need to get rid of him in the summer. He has been quite poor this season to say the least. He has not had his heart in the games and it seems to have…

PREVIEW: West Ham v Southampton

West Ham v Southampton Preview: Allardyce and his men will be looking to continue their fine form coming into Saturday’s clash with The Saints. On the back of three consecutive wins along with four clean sheets from their last four, it would take a bold man to bet against the Hammers. However, Southampton are unbeaten in six in the league and after their loss in the Capital One Cup last weekend, they will be looking to make amends…

The mystery of Big Sam’s substitutions

Sam substitutions have often been a mystery for a long time. For example taking of a striker for a striker when we are 1-0 down. However every once in a blue moon, Allardyce gets it spot on with his substitutions. For example when we won against Fulham 3-0, he put on Joe Cole, Carlton Cole and Ravel. The two Coles scored and Ravel brought the game to life. Or when we beat Chelsea at home last season, he brought …

MATCH REVIEW: West Ham v Norwich

West Ham v Norwich post match review The Canaries made the trip down to East London looking for their first win at The Boleyn Ground since 1987, and although irrelevant records such as this mean very little, it always seems to be against West Ham that these records are broken. However, with West Ham picking up back ­to­ back wins, for the first time since returning to the Premier League, the boys in claret and blue were looking to …

Onwards and Upwards

What a week it has been for us Hammers!! The mixture of the U21s & a few first team players being beat 5-0 then the horrific first leg at the Etihad on Wednesday was very painful for us BUT what a win it was away from home at Cardiff! Three vital points that lift us out of the bottom three and hopefully a springboard to kick us on. I will be honest after Wednesday, I thought we would…

Who could be leaving West Ham in January?

West Ham are always linked with every player going when the transfer window comes around. Likewise our own players always seem to be linked with moves; two in particular have been frequently mentioned. The first player that is always linked to be leaving  is Winston Reid. Arguably our best player,  who we’ve really struggled without the last few games and I really hope he can start playing again soon but it…

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 …

What do I think of the current squad?

Apparently every cloud has a silver lining but I fail to see what the upside of losing to one of the worst teams in Premiership history is, in Crystal Palace! Now I really fear that we are in a dogfight and at the moment as I said in my first article, who is going to score the goals? I’m very glad that Andy Carroll has finally arrived back at Chadwell Heath and is training again. However, we need him now. The …

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…

MATCH REVIEW: West Ham 0-3 Chelsea

West Ham 0-3 Chelsea Match Review Another poor performance! I think it is fair to say that we are in huge trouble and unless Andy Carroll returns by at least January, there is every possibility that we’ll be travelling to Barnsley next year. Chelsea looked much more comfortable on the ball than us from the first minute. We rushed every pass when we had time and laboured on the ball when we didn’t. Nolan was awful and a waste …

Where do we go from here?

Where Do We Go From here? As you have all figured out by now I tend to be an optimist when it comes to West Ham United. It is pretty clear after this epic collapse in the second half today though that things need to change. The question is what do we do? Where do we go from here? It seems that there are two key questions going forward: what do…

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…
