Tottenham 1-2 West Ham United | Capital One Cup match report

West Ham United had emphatically not read the script. This was supposed to be Tim Sherwood’s big night; the first time that he had managed in the professional game and, also, the first steps towards redemption for Emmanuel Adebayor. Adebayor had become almost Tottenham Hotspur’s forgotten man, although the chairman, Daniel Levy, remained well aware of the monthly direct debit that entered the striker’s bank account. It was one of the …

Sam Allardyce targets striker in January window to fire West Ham

• West Ham manager says forward lined up in transfer window • Owners retain faith despite describing season as ‘write off’ West Ham United are outstanding. Insofar as they stand out from the other clubs in the Premier League’s bottom five by not having sacked their manager this season yet. It hardly strengthens Sam Allardyce’s job security that the team in last place, Sunderland, outplayed his side for long periods before having to settle for a goalless draw, but West…

Liverpool 4-1 West Ham United | Premier League match report

Anyone mistaken enough to leave Anfield early yesterday may have departed feeling short-changed. A ticket tends to come with the guarantee of copious quantities of Luis Suárez goals, and after the feast, an 80-minute famine followed. Then Suárez struck to take his extraordinary haul at home to 10 goals in four games as Liverpool reeled off a fifth successive win on their own turf. Compared to his spectacular efforts in Wednesday’s 5-1 thrashing of Norwich, this one was comparatively mundane: a far-post header …

Goalkeeper. Right-back. Two centre-halves. Left-back.

Crystal Palace 1-0 West Ham United | Premier League match report

Tony Pulis has had his immediate effect. Crystal Palace, a team apparently bereft of hope a few weeks ago, hoisted themselves off the foot of the table with victory in their new manager’s first home game in charge here and, in an instant, safety is only three points away. Life near the bottom does not seem quite so oppressive in that context. These are very early days for the new man at the helm but, with Cardiff City – currently just outside the cut-off – …

West Ham United v Fulham: Squad sheets

Both managers enter this fixture knowing that a bad result could quickly propel their names to the front of the sack race. Without a win in five games, Sam Allardyce’s side are clearly suffering from the lack of a quality striker and after one goal in four games, Carlton Cole may merit a start. For Fulham Darren Bent and Dimitar Berbatov may have 195 Premier League goals between them, but their partnership continues to show few indications of prospering. Louis …

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend | Guardian writers

Moyes’s momentum, time for plan B at Fulham and a mid-table clash at the Etihad are just some of things to look forward to West Ham struggling for strikers Anyone with a passing knowledge of West Ham United knew that starting the season with Andy Carroll as their only striker – we’ll not be counting Modibo Maïga, thank you very much – was asking for trouble. But Sam Allardyce went ahead and put all his eggs in one basket anyway and, surprise, surprise, …

Sloppy West Ham leave Sam Allardyce needing the lifeline at Norwich

The catch was a simple one but West Ham United’s goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen dropped it and so Chris Hughton is still Norwich City manager. That is speculation, of course, but sometimes life really is that simple and it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest West Ham’s clumsy generosity on Saturday evening helped to keep Hughton in his job. In the first half the Canaries were abject, their confidence apparently in pieces as strikerless West Ham passed the …

Norwich City 3-1 West Ham United | Premier League match report

At half-time you would not have given tuppence for Chris Hughton’s chances of remaining manager of Norwich City. It was not so much the Canaries were sliding towards a sixth defeat in eight matches as the manner in which they were doing so that prompted the boos which followed the players down the tunnel. Put simply, Norwich were being both outplayed and tactically embarrassed. The extent to which Hughton effected the transformation which…
