Some statistics from West Ham’s defeat to Leicester

Possession In terms of ball possession we had the better of the reigning champions of England yesterday afternoon. They do say in some matches possession doesn’t mean a thing and that was certainly the case in yesterdays 2-3 defeat to the Foxes. Shots on/off target Yesterdays 5 goal thriller certainly wasn’t without its fair share of goal mouth action. We had 13 efforts with 7 of them on target whereas Leicester managed just 6 shots with 5 of them directly at goal. It is clear to …

Pearson Previews the Premier League as West Ham aim to end Leicester revival

West Ham go into their game at home to Leicester on the back of four games without a win. A good run in January elevated the Hammers into mid table but following recent defeats they could see them miss out on a top half finish. After Leicester’s game in midweek however, they may have the chance to turn this around. Before their last two wins Leicester were in serious danger of relegation but …

Should he stay or should he go?

Football can be an unforgiving and fickle beast. One minute you are lifting the Premier League trophy, the next you are unemployed. This season, we at West Ham have already been the victim of just how fickle football can be. A certain French midfielder (sorry but can’t quite remember his name) was signing a lucrative new contract with a loyalty bonus and the next thing we knew was refusing to play and on a plane back to …

Season ticket prices frozen, Carroll for England, throwback Thursday and on this day in 2002

Joint chairmen freeze season ticket prices It has been announced this week in a statement from David Gold and David Sullivan that season ticket prices will remain the same for existing season ticket holders.

Fonte reckons he will come good for West Ham under coach Bilic’s stewardship

West Ham defender Jose Fonte believes he will flourish under the stewardship of Hammers boss Slaven Bilic. Fonte says he has much to learn from his current manager given that he, too, played in the heart of central defence during his career. Bilic recruited Portugal ace Fonte in January from Southampton for a fee believed to be in the region of £8million but has only tasted victory once in his six outings for the London…

Is Slaven super or just stubborn?

‘Super’ Slav has been much under the spotlight this week following our last gasp defeat to out of form Bournemouth. Many criticized his decision to continue with Kouyaté in our right back position. However, Kouyaté’s debut in the position helped earn the Hammers a win away at Southampton. Our goal difference since Kouyaté has played at right back is also +1, so does Slav have a point? It is clear that Bilic is looking for a …

Is it the beginning of the end for Mark Noble?

Stating the name Mark Noble to a fellow West Ham 3 years ago would usually be greeted with a smile and two crossed arms to symbolise what the man behind the name meant to us. Now, however, if you uttered the same name, you can expect to be frowned at and told that he is “past it”. Being a young Hammers fan growing into the game of football, Mark couldn’t have found himself in…

Bilic needs to be doing more than putting square pegs in round holes

The weekend’s defeat at Bournemouth once again exposed the very real problem of Bilic using players in positions that they are neither used to playing or indeed capable of doing so. Kouyate at right back is the most obvious of these. Without doubt one of the best players at the Club, Kouyate is a box to box midfield player, not afraid to take on his man, he provides a real thrust and …

Pearson Previews West Ham’s Premier League weekend (and the FA Cup too)

West Ham United travel to face Bournemouth this weekend with a draw being enough to move them into the top half of the league. Bournemouth on the other hand need to pick up points before they slide closer to the bottom three. The Hammers have scored 13 goals in their last seven games and face a defence which will be missing key players through suspension. Goal difference could be important going forward and a three goal victory would move them into 9 th place…

Big guns eye Michail Antonio but striker wants to focus on West Ham’s trip to Bournemouth

Time to do the Noble thing?

In a season of such contrasts, the form of our Club captain Mark Noble is surely one of the most notable. Last season we collectively called for an England call up for our leader and yet, this season, such a call up would seem to be a distant dream for the Canning Town boy. In fact, if he continues to play the way he is, he could well end up joining Ray Winstone as a face…

Since accepting the offer from Sullivan, Gold and Brady to follow in the shortlived footsteps of Slaven Bilic, a…
