Pearson’s Premier League Roundup: Hammers win away on the final day

West Ham end the season outside the top half but on goal difference alone. The 2-1 win away at Burnley means they are the only side outside of the top six to win at Turf Moor since the opening day of the season. One defeat in seven is a good way to end what has been a disappointing season for West Ham and they would have hoped for more at the start of the season. Burnley…

Fernandes Stands Out During Burnley Win

I can rarely remember a final game of the season being more welcome than this one. Despite a respectable mid-table finish, the season feels like it has had far more negatives than positives and I for one was not sorry to see the fat lady sing and the curtain come down. In a weekend where once again David Gold took to social media and dropped the sort of gaff that Donald Trump would be…

Ayew nets winner in end of season victory As the full-time whistle blew on one of the strangest West Ham seasons in our history, at least it was the travelling Claret and Blue army who were celebrating despite a Burnley pitch invasion.

Key Stats from the win at Burnley

Let’s start by taking a look at some of the key stats from our season ending 1-2 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor yesterday. Possession Having dominance over our opponents in any game this season in terms of possession has been a rarity at best, but yesterday was an exception to that rule.

Match Preview: Burnley v West Ham

Welcome back for the last time this season, as we head up to our final fixture of the season against Burnley. It’s been a long, hard slog but we’ve got through it relatively unscathed. Hopefully, we can give this game a good go with some of the youngsters seeing their first starts. The Opponents: Burnley have not had the best of seasons themselves. They are languishing in fifteenth. However, they are comfortably, and most importantly, mathematically safe. That being said, …

Why Andy Carroll’s amazing overhead kick was best goal of Premier League season…

Andy Carroll’s amazing overhead kick should have been named the best goal of the Premier League season, so says Sky pundit and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

Other strikes in contention were Liverpool midfielder Emre Can’s recent overhead kick against Watford and a scorpion kick from Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud against Crystal Palace.

Pearson’s Premier League Roundup: Hammers suffer heavy home defeat

West Ham suffered their first loss in 6 games at home to Liverpool but they stay 12th in the league. After the 4-0 loss a top half finish is now looking out of their reach but they now won’t end the season lower than 16th.
