Snodgrass urges West Ham team-mates to be at their best for Hammers on return to Hull

West Ham star Robert Snodgrass has reminded his team-mates that they will have to perform to the top of their game if they are to grab a win at Hull City on Saturday. The Hammers go to the KCOM Stadium for a Premier League clash in the knowledge that they have failed to pick up a win in their past five top flight games; gleaning just two points from a possible 15. And Slaven Bilic’s troops …

Do they ever listen?

I laughed out loud when I saw the first ‘Media Watch’ proudly tweeted out by the @Westhamunited, the official West Ham twitter page. It’s only taken three months for the club to rebrand, dress up and disguise its previous ‘The Insider’ page. For those of you who have not read the page, it was a gossip page about the club’s transfer dealings. If it sounds ridiculous, it’s because it really is…

West Ham ace Kouyate desperate for confidence boost with Premier League victory at Hull

Cheikhou Koulyate has assured concerned West Ham fans that the downcast players’ confidence will come flooding back if the Hammers win at Hull City Kouyate, who helped Senegal to 1-1 draw with Nigeria at Barnet’s The Hive in a friendly match last night, realises that a victory at the KCOM Stadium against Marco Silva’s men will do wonders for morale in the camp.

Would you choose Adrian or Randolph?

It was about four months ago now that the calls for Darren Randolph to replace fan favourite Adrián first began to fall upon the London Stadium. Originally, these calls fell on deaf ears with Bilic sticking with his established number one goalkeeper, presumably due to his superior performances in the 2015/16 season. A few games down the line saw Slaven begin to tinker with his side from front to back and eventually that tinkering reached our Spanish shot-stopper. After a string …

Hang on, it’s only March!

I know we’ve had three consecutive losses and no wins in five, but I think some fans believe our season is quite literally over. We have nine games left and although there are nine points between the bottom and ourselves, I wouldn’t take safety for granted. Nor however, would I confine myself to relegation and demand Slav’s sacking. It’s been a weird week for the club since the loss to Leicester many have gone into meltdown. The loss was especially painful …

West Ham winger Feghouli pledges to help Hammers out of the doldrums

West Ham winger Sofiane Feghouli has pledged to redouble his efforts to help the Hammers out of a five-game losing streak in the Premier League. The international break means Slaven Bilic’s side are without a game this weekend and the Algeria attacker has plenty of time to dwell on a recent run of poor form as his home nation are without a game. The slump has seen West Ham drop to 12th in the top flight table. But Feghouli…

At least Allardyce could defend…

With injuries to three very key players, one a season ending injury for arguably our player of the season Pedro Obiang, West Ham are entering a very crucial period which may well shape the short term future of our Club. Defeats to Bournemouth and Leicester have left us less than comfortably placed in the league table and points are still needed to ensure Premier League survival. With a defensive unit in crisis, we are conceding goals…

Don’t make Randolph scapegoat and axe him as West Ham No.1, Hammers legend Cottee tells Bilic

West Ham United keeper Darren Randolph is still the club’s No.1 and shouldn’t be dropped by boss Slaven Bilic. That’s according to former Hammers striker Tony Cottee, who insists Randolph should retain his place in the team despite arguably being responsible for the first goal by Leicester in their 3-2 win at the London Stadium at the weekend. The defeat meant that Bilic’s men have now gone five games without a…

Life’s a pitch! Antonio: West Ham ‘adjusted’ to size of London Stadium surface, yet results seem to disagree

Life’s a pitch; a really big pitch in the case of West Ham’s HQ, the London Stadium. But is the playing area at the home of the Hammers impacting tactically on Slaven Bilic’s side? Winger Michail Antonio, who has forced to pull out of the England squad with a hamstring injury which is likely to sideline him for up to a month, has suggested that the pitch size was a problem early on at the stadium after…

West Ham star Fonte leaps to defence of under-fire Hammers manager Bilic

Under-fire West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has been defended by struggling Hammers star Jose Fonte following the defeat at home to Leicester City in the Premier League at the weekend. The 3-2 defeat to the Foxes means Bilic’s men are without a win in five top flight outings. And fans were critical of the manager and his team after seeing them go 2-0 down after just seven minutes at the London Stadium and failing to turn things around. But Fonte, who …

Lackadaisical defence costs Hammers again Our hopes of our first 3 points were dashed within 8 minutes of our Premier League clash yesterday with a shabby defence being infiltrated for 2 quick fire Foxes goals.

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.

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 …
