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 …

32 is the Magic Number

Everyone loves a new striker turning up at their club. Sure a towering centre back or a workman like midfield dynamo can be just as important to your team’s success on the pitch but nothing gets the blood pumping like the thought of a 20+ goal a season talisman pulling in your club colours.

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

Michail Antonio may be the focus of attention for some of the big-spending Premier League clubs, who are said to have an eye on a potential summer move for the in-form attacker. But the Hammers star has a single-minded attitude to his football, seemingly; he is setting his sights on scoring for the cause in the top flight trip to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday. Antonio is doubly …

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…

Hammers must have Carroll leading the line if they are to beat Chelsea, says West Ham icon Cottee

Tony Cottee knows a thing or two about scoring goals in a West Ham shirt. The Hammers legend managed to bang in 146 net-busters in two spells during his career at Upton Park, so any comment he makes on the subject should be noted.

Bilic close to signing new deal, say Sky Sports News

Sky Sports are today reporting that West Ham are close to agreeing a new contract with manager Slaven Bilic. With some fifteen months left on his current contract, Bilic was predictably coy when questioned during his press conference, claiming that he only thought of his contract in terms of the next two or three games. Perhaps this is indicative of the perilous position that the modern day football manager finds himself in, most recently demonstrated in the sacking of Raneri at …
