What to expect before the New Year

What to Expect Before the New Year I don’t think anyone expected this team to be sitting in 4 th place 11 games into the season. The pre-season looked bleak and when Andy Carroll went down, again, many hammers were terrified. I remember one specific conversation in which a fellow fan told me that neither Valencia nor Sakho were true strikers and that Big Sam wouldn’t change anything. I disagreed vehemently on the first point but hated to admit that I…

England recognition for West Ham star, Twitter goes absolutely mental

Who’s been getting Roy Hodgson drunk? After years of overlooking our best performing English players, Roy has finally recognised Stewart Downing’s recent performances and called him up to the England squad. Downing has fully deserved international recognition so far this season and it would have been an outrage had Roy not called him up, which… Read more »

Proof West Ham are finally learning their lesson?

When Mame Biram Diouf glanced home to give Stoke City a 2-0 advantage on Saturday, many fans were anticipating a performance reminiscent of the forgettable visit of Southampton earlier in the season. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, West Ham were back in the game with a brilliant goal from Enner Valencia, four minutes after Stoke… Read more »

No Sakho, no problem for West Ham

Injuries are, of course, part of the game and as a Hammers fan we know that as well as any fan base. With the miseries we’ve suffered as Andy Carroll has been in, out, in and out of the lineup over the past three seasons, we’ve had to adapt and scratch and claw just to… Read more »

The stats that prove West Ham are better compared to last season

When the owners revealed their demands for this season, most fans baulked at the idea of attacking football under Sam Allardyce. How could a manager with such an outdated philosophy simply change his style and get immediate results? Well, those who questioned it have been proven wrong thus far. An exciting start to the season… Read more »

A closer look at West Ham’s unlikely Deadly Duo

Another impressive West Ham performance resulted in a comprehensive victory against a struggling Queens Park Rangers side. It felt like Allardyce’s men rarely had to hit top gear against QPR but West Ham were ruthless when it mattered most. In terms of the overall stats in Sunday’s game, the two teams looked quite similar on… Read more »

More proof that West Ham players are overlooked by England

Another England squad announcement. Another in-form West Ham player overlooked by the increasingly ignorant England manager.

West Ham 3-1 Liverpool – Player Ratings

Well, that’s what I call a superb performance. Co-chaiman David Gold described it as ‘one of the best overall performances I’ve seen since I’ve been at the club’ and it’s hard to disagree.

Is the ‘West Ham way’ here to stay?

West Ham produced another fine display against Liverpool on Saturday night to get their first home win of the season. A magnificent team performance nullified the effects of a Liverpool side who only narrowly won against Ludogorets in the Champions League during the week. Although a lot of the media coverage had centered around Liverpool’s… Read more »

The stats don’t lie – West Ham’s unlikely new roaming midfielder?

Big Sam is a notorious stat man who reads into individual facts and figures more so than most managers. With this being the case, he would have loved the personal attributes of Stewart Downing who was simply brilliant against Hull on Monday. Although a lot of the plaudits went to Valencia for that absolute peach… Read more »

Proving he was worth the gamble at West Ham?

Following the permanent arrival of Andy Carroll last summer, Allardyce was once again able to persuade the co-owners to use the remainder on acquiring the services of winger Stuart Downing, however it has often been questioned whether Big Sam was right to sign him. A major part of the manager’s thinking was that, with Matt… Read more »

FIVE reasons West Ham WILL be ‘better’ this season

So that’s what it’s like to lose to Spurs, then?

Proposed starting XI v. West Brom

Given that we have no fresh injury worries, I wouldn’t be surprised if Allardyce lined up with the same starting XI that put in such a pathetic performance at home to Crystal Palace last weekend.

Downing is a key player for West Ham

We’re not at the end of the season yet, but as it approaches there is one player who seems to have massively split opinion between West Ham fans. Stewart Downing. I have no complaints about his first season with us. I think time after time he has been the best player on the pitch and the one that’s created chance after chance. Due to Jarvis not performing great this season we relied a lot on Downing and he …

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…
