A typical Hammers’ programme of the early 1920s was of four pages, the front page given over to the editorial and lists of current goal-scorers, the back …

Idle Thoughts on Dress Code

“Twelve months ago the West Ham United Football Club came into being.  A palpable idea was attached to it, and it rang in the ears of the West Ham sport-loving public like the old ballad of “Chevy Chase” upon those of Sir Philip Sydney, stirring their hearts as with the sound of the trumpet.

Did Bilic get it tactically right?

Slaven Bilic’s tactics have been quite confusing to most fans recently with the most confusing obviously playing Javier Hernandez out of position by playing him at left or right wing.
