Can West Ham still make the top four?

Can West Ham still make the top four? This season has been one of the best West Ham have ever had, certainly the best since I first attended a game in 2004. Beginning with our fantastic away wins over Arsenal and Man City to Payet’s heroics and Carroll’s return to scoring form. One question still remains for West Ham though; can they make it into the Champions league? If you look at the current …

Does Payet need a rest?

Does Payet deserve a rest? What more can be said by Hammers fans about Dimitri Payet? The midfielder has worked wonders for West Ham since he was signed in the summer from Marseille. His name is sung at every game, home and away, and he is very likely to win the Hammer of the Year in his first season. Payet is responsible for carrying West Ham into the new stadium with great optimism for the coming seasons. …

A fitting game to Mr West Ham

This weekend saw a day that has been in most West Ham’s Calendar for quite some time. Mark Noble’s Testimonial and the game and day really did have everything. It was a day of mixed emotions that’s for certain, especially as for some it was some fans last time at Upton Park. Noble himself done well to keep control of his emotions after his guard of honour at the start of the …

Vital duo to return

We have gone through the season with numerous amounts of injuries and the club are about to start a very compact week of football with difficult games coming up that will have a massive influence on where West Ham finish in the league. These games are the mid-week game against Spurs then rounding off with West Ham’s bogey team Everton. It is therefore vital that two of our injured players…

A show of good character

Good character Norwich City 2-2 West Ham United West Ham travelled to Norwich who have just dropped down into the relegation zone, which certainly added an extra need for the home team. The first half was played at a fast pace, end to end with both team attacking each other but in general losing the ball before anything can develop. Neither team managed to create any real chances, with the Canaries not registering a shot on target in the entire …

A Noble inspired win

Noble Inspired West Ham United 2-0 Aston Villa Anything but a win today would not be acceptable, that doesn’t often get said in the league but when the bottom place team visit that really should be the case. Our home record has been fantastic since the back to back home defeats at the start of the season, so a win here was quietly expected. From around the 3rd minute of the game, after a…

What is West Ham’s strongest midfield?

Following on from my previous article, which was published earlier today about our best back four, in this piece I choose our strongest midfield. As I believe the 4-2-3-1 formation is our strongest, I am playing two holding midfielders, with an attacking midfielder and a left and right wing. Holding Midfielders Again, there are a few players with worthy shouts to this position, but the pairing I’m going for are Cheikhou Kouyate and the captain…

What is West Ham’s best back four?

Who is West Ham’s best back four? I know as West Ham fans this is really quite difficult to imagine, but just for a minute try and focus your mind on this scenario really hard. Imagine a fantastical world in which we had no injuries. I know it’s farfetched, I know we’ve never seen the like, and I know that labelling it as wishful thinking wouldn’t even do it justice, but…

Should we bring in this player at the expense of two others?

Do we need to strengthen? Slaven Bilic has been quite open with the West Ham United supporters over the last few weeks, about the fact he does not feel that we need to do any business in the January transfer market. He did indicate though, that should the right deal become available, and we could shift a couple of players off the wage bill, then it was possible.  Most of the talk …

Is it time to get rid of this injury prone player?

Since Andy Carroll’s move to West Ham United in 2013 I think it’s fair to say his potential has been very much short-lived, for one reason, injuries. Despite signing in June for a fee of £15 million, Carroll had to wait until January before he played his first game of the season after picking up an injury at the end of the previous campaign. He ended the season with just 2 goals from 18 appearances. Andy Carroll entered the 2014-15 season in…

Team Spirit Prevails

Team spirit prevails AFC Bournemouth 1-3 West Ham United The cherries pulled off a fantastic 4-3 win at the Boleyn ground right at the beginning of the season, so this game was a chance to seek revenge but also climb up the table and put some pressure on the teams above. This wasn’t our finest performance of the season but sometimes you get a win that perhaps you shouldn’t have got and this game had …

Jelavic needs a helping hand

After another 0-0 draw away at Swansea this weekend it is completely normal that fans are starting to get fed up. The Swansea game was slightly different to the Manchester United and Stoke game in the sense that for the first two 0-0 the team played well and done more than enough to win. The Swansea game we didn’t really create enough or play well enough but the positive was how well our…

MATCH REVIEW: Swansea v West Ham

Better to draw than lose Swansea City 0-0 West Ham United Both teams went into this game having not won in their last six games. The Swans had lost their previous 3 and the Hammers had drawn their last 3, so this game always had the suspicion of a nervous contest with both teams trying to get onto the right track going into the busy and tough Christmas period. West Ham had to call upon Jelavic to start his first game after Carroll …

Another year, but the same old story

Another year, but the same old story Christmas 2015 is approaching, and yet again, West Ham United find themselves in the midst of an injury crisis.  It seems the same story every year for the club.  It doesn’t matter which manager is in charge, it seems to have become a club tradition; starting the season well, then it starting to wane by the festive fixtures. With Dmitri Payet, Diafra Sakho, Enner Valencia, Victor Moses and …

Changes to be made for West Brom

Due to the international break and the manner of the defeat at Spurs it feels like it’s been months since our last win. The performance at Spurs was extremely poor and not acceptable. In terms of the Everton game it wasn’t the worst performance but not our best in any way. The four goals conceded on Sunday were mainly down to individual error, which questions whether the team needs to be changed on Sunday. The first …

West Ham Defender linked with move
