Throwback Thursday: European Cup Winners Cup 1981

In this week’s edition of our weekly throwback segment, we speak to Mick, 61, an avid Hammers fan, about a rare European night at Upton Park. “I’ve been a fanatical West Ham fan for 36 years now, but I didn’t start my journey as a Hammer until the age of 25. That coincided with my very first visit to The Boleyn Ground. I’ve loved football all my life, played Sunday league Football in …

Premier League Preview: West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur

It’s that time of year again… Tottenham in chase once more and before them lies another trip to their London rivals. If anyone wants to stop a high-flying Spurs it’s us. It’ll be a tough ask but a London derby under the lights could be the perfect motivation for the Hammers. A point is all the Irons need to reach the ‘magic forty’, I’m hoping we see it out in style and break a few lily white hearts…

Daniel Sturridge NOT the answer to West Ham firepower woes, says Hammers legend Cottee

West Ham must resist the urge to snap up striker Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool because of his fragility when it comes to injuries. That’a according to Hammers legend Tony Cottee, who believes the club must recruit a new striker ahead of next season but that the Anfield hitman doesn’t fit the bill. Cottee was the last West Ham forward to score 20 top flight league goals in a season and while the former England attacker …

Bilic sweats on his job as West Ham power-brokers ponder his future as Hammers boss

It looks highly likely that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic will help the Hammers avoid the dreaded drop – but that may not be enough to save his job, it has emerged. A mini-run of four game without defeat means Bilic’s men would appear to have retained their top flight status, though it should be said that they are not mathematically safe just yet. After 39 games, the Hammers have 35 points and sit in 15th position …

Exasperated West Ham boss Bilic desperate to let Andy Carroll loose on Tottenham

If Andy Carroll didn’t know that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is becoming increasingly frustrated that his star striker hasn’t been available as regularly as he would like of late, he certainly does now. For the Hammers boss has made it clear that he is exasperated at Carroll’s time on the treatment table; and has expressed his desire that the former Newcastle and Liverpool hitman, recently out with a groin injury, be available for selection when West Ham host…

Key Stats from the Hammers’ Draw at Stoke

Let’s start by taking a look at the key statistics from yesterday’s frustrating goalless draw at the Bet 365 Stadium. Possession Despite being largely regarded as the better side at The Bet 365 Stadium yesterday, there were many key areas where we had no joy at all and possession of the ball was one of those. The hosts had a hearty share of 57.1 percent possession, to our unflattering 42.9 percent of the keep ball in the draw. Keeping the ball …

Pearson’s Premier League Preview

West Ham have picked up enough points of late to end any mild fears of relegation. They are unbeaten in three games but face a difficult run. First up is an away trip to Stoke but home games against Spurs and Liverpool next and then away to Burnley on the final day could make it difficult to improve on their points tally. A win away to Stoke this weekend will …

Boss Billic urges West Ham stars to see off Stoke and confirm Premier League status

Slaven Bilic has reminded his West Ham players they still have the threat of relegation looming over them. That has to be in the inference from Bilic’s comments ahead of the Premier League clash at Stoke City tomorrow. The Hammers, who have gleaned five points from the past three Premier League games, are highly unlikely to go down as they sit in 14th position and are seven points clear of the drop zone. But the West Ham manager …

Hammers have all but secured their place in the Premier League after a gutsy draw

Yesterday something amazing happened…Lukaku didn’t score against West Ham! In fact, he never actually looked like scoring. The credit for that must be given to our defenders and in particular our very own Ginger Pele. He was immense, and alongside the returning Winston Reid, we looked defensively sound. Now that’s something we haven’t been able to say much this season. It was a good performance with a much-depleted side. Let’s not get too carried away, Everton weren’t firing on all…

Oh What A Difference A Year Makes

What a difference a year makes. This time last year, West Ham were within shouting distance of the FA cup semi-final and 4th place in the League. The team was in the midst of a long undefeated run and full of confidence, Slaven Bilic was a tactical genius who had delivered wins against Liverpool (3 times!) Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs. The feel good factor was evident everywhere sure…

Pearson’s Premier League Preview: West Ham face an Everton side great at home, but bad away

Saturday sees West Ham host an Everton side which have failed to win any of their last five away league games. It is their home form which has seen Everton maintain pressure on the top six above. They can move back to 5th with a win in this game but would likely move back down once their rivals have played. West Ham have picked up four points from their last two games and have moved away from any relegation threat…

Stick with Randolph for now, Bilic…but get Joe Hart in summer, says Hammers legend Cottee

Slaven Bilic has been told to stick with Darren Randolph in goal when West Ham host Everton in a Premier League encounter at the London Stadium tomorrow. Former Hammers striker Tony Cottee reckons Darren Randolph should still be the first choice keeper despite being responsible, arguably, for both of Sunderland’s goals in the 2-2 at draw at the Stadium of Light last week. But Cottee says he wouldn’t disagree with a move to bring Joe Hart…
