And I thought Sullivan & Gold were supposedly West Ham fans!

Sullivan and Gold are West Ham fans? Don’t make me laugh! All West Ham fans know from painful experience one, absolute, unalterable, never to be refuted or denied or challenged law: if it can go wrong, it bloody well will go wrong, and with fcuking great knobs on! So, we break our…

Carroll injury exposes the grand folly of Sullivan, Gold and Princess Brady

So that’s it then, Carroll has sustained another injury and is beginning to bear all the hallmarks of another Dean Ashton or Keiron Dyer. But at least when those two inaction men booked in to their favourite treatment suite, the club had somebody to fill their shirts. Not so this time. Amazingly, or should I say typically, West Ham fans have been slow to condemn the brinkmanship …

Leave it late and you get what you deserve – sweet FA!

So the truth is out! Far from sitting on their dildos, messers Sullivan, Gold and Brady were moving heaven and earth on the last day of the window trying to sign a striker. Ba, Lukaku and Bendtner were all on the shopping list, but sadly all three deals fell at the final hurdle. Two questions arise from this, of course. The first is, why did we…

West Ham operating on wingers and a prayer!

What a joke, but, to quote The Smiths, that joke ain’t funny anymore, it’s too close to home and too near the bone! The window has closed and unless transfer papers have been couriered in secret, Sullivan, Gold & Allardyce haves decided that plan B really is one plan too many. We have Andy Carroll, …

Allardyce calls for Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland to be deducted points

Interesting. Backed into a bit of a corner in the post match Talk Bollocks interview, Allardyce repeated the myth that West Ham cannot buy without selling because of the new financial regulations for clubs in the Prem. A slightly intimidated interviewer had the audacity, like this blog, to raise the issue …

Half Time: West Ham 0 Stoke 0 – Blowing our lines rather than bubbles

The last time we had a chance to go top of the Prem for 24 hours, Bolton came to the Boleyn and Green made two terrible errors as we folded 3-1. And based on that first half, the team are intent on blowing the opportunity again. The back 5 apart, we have been awful. Maiga has missed another nailed on opportunity, making a hash of a header from a rare Jarvis…

Hardly a Gold Cup performance but Cheltenham win is better than an Aldershot defeat!

Well it is a relief that the game is out of the way to be honest. Vaz Te scored to make a case for being retained, and the Morrison hype machine received another boost with his strike. 2-1 against a team from the bottom division isn’t anything to get excited about, but it’s a bloody site better than losing…

Cheltenham a litmus test for season ahead

Cheltenham should present few if any problems, even if Allardyce selects a second string eleven, but the way we perform could be a clue to how the season will unfold. Every West Ham fan has obsessed about the need for another striker, but the Capital One Fan Cup will give us the opportunity to assess the ability and desire of a…

Parker starts Fulham career with defeat and booking

After narrowly escaping slipping down to the Championship following a bid from family friend ‘Arry Redknapp, Scotty Parker found himself on the wrong end of an Arsenal tonking in his debut game for Fulham. Not surprisingly, the Arsenal midfield over ran and outclassed Parker who, despite his energy and commitment, has …

Tottenham Hotspur find the perfect Bale replacement – and no transfer fee was involved!

So, two Premiership games in to the post Bale era – with matches against the mighty Crystal Palace and Swansea no less – and Spurs have managed two goals…both penalties! All that money spent on midfielders and strikers, and no goal has been fashioned from open play in 180 minutes of football! How pathetic is that? But then, Spurs fans will be quick to point out that the two …

Newcastle 0 West Ham 0 – Defence make a point as chances are scorned

Well it’s not a game that will live long in the memory but that’s true of the two previous matches between the two sides, a 0-0 draw and Upton Park and our 1-0 win in Geordieland last season. But had Nolan or Maiga buried great headed chances, we would have won again. Defensively we were excellent, until the 92nd minute when an intended cross came back …

Half Time Newcastle 0 West Ham 0 – So far so good!

Well it hasn’t been the most exciting game so far but Allardyce won’t be concerned about that. We have looked compact, Jussi hasn’t been troubled so far, and the three best chances have fallen to us. Reid could have two now, so nearly connecting first with a Maiga flick on, and then with a free kick from deep from Collins. Downing and Maiga combined really should have scored after …

Thank God we side stepped Anelka!

Let’s face it, Anelka would have been a classic West Ham signing, being over the hill by a good two years by the time he would consider a move to us; and, of course, he is a former Bolton man. But this time, we resisted, no doubt because of absurdly inflated wage demands, and allowed Steve Clarke to sign the …

Cheeky Crystal Palace Chump Chamakh in Lying Claim

So, after signing for the mighty Crystal Palace, prize chump Chamakh, who along with Pogatetz made a determined bid for a place in the Worst Ever West Ham Eleven side last season, has accused Allardyce of “lying” because he wasn’t given game time at Upton Park. What is that if not …

Well said David Gold for knocking Newcastle and Manchester City!

It may not be wise to wind them up, especially when we are playing Newcastle at the weekend, but Gold got it absolutely right when he called the two line ups for last night’s game as a “disgrace” because there were only three Englishmen amongst the 22 starters – and one of those was sent off! This is a World Cup year and it …

Tottenham’s Parker sidesteps QPR to join Fulham

So Scotty’s agent has done it again, negotiating another 3 year contract which keeps the injury prone, ageing, running round in circles, midfield spinning dynamo in the Prem and so in with a shout of going to Brazil…well in Scotty’s mind at least. Redknapp must be fuming. ‘Arry went out on a limb when …

Who will buy Matt Taylor?

Leeds United were linked with him, but cash strapped Leeds have to shrink their existing wage bill so won’t be able to afford Taylor anytime over the next decade. ‘Arry had him at Portsmouth when Pompey stormed the division, but QPR are being linked with Konchelsky and surely even Fernandes will put a cap …

Will Di Canio and Sunderland have a parting of ways before Christmas?

Why were Diarra and Vaz Te brought on rather than Morrison?

Ok, I don’t want to gripe after an excellent opening day win – albeit we were playing Cardiff, not Man City – but the decision to overlook Morrison completely was somewhat irritating. The kid has had a truly brilliant pre season and it would have been exciting to see him given a run out, even if only used as a sub. Fair enough to bring on Downing, the fans were anxious to…

Mark Noble has a mare as West Ham defeat Cardiff in season opener

Well what do you do with the guy? Mr PR, all smiles and on message statements and no crucial contributions on the pitch, Mark Noble gave his usual anonymous, mistake ridden performance. True he assisted our second goal with a one two and a superb driving run at the heart of the Cardiff defence before releasing Nolan to score, …

Allardyce’s Midfield Headache

(Article submitted by Stani) With the season all set to kick off, it will be interesting to see the first choice midfield Sam Allardyce chooses to go with. Personally, I think he’ll have a bit of a headache which he’ll try to relieve by cramming the midfield with 5 rather than …

Full marks to Sullivan & Gold – Again!

OK, I’m not a big fan of Downing, but if he is unveiled as a West Ham player tomorrow, you have to give huge credit to the owners again. After shelling out somewhere between £12m and £15m for Carroll, many of us thought that we would pad out the squad with loan signings and cheapies, but the Board had different ideas. The signing of Downing shows…

West Ham Fight Club target Liverpool’s Sterling as well as Downing & QPR’s Barton?

Never mind bruising the football using Allardyce’s lump it long tactics, it’s looking like West Ham are following Hull City Tiger’s example, by seeking a name change to West Ham Fight Club. We already have Andy Carroll and Ravel Morrison on the books, so just imagine what it will be like if we sign serial thug Barton, alleged girl friend beater Raheem Sterling (on …

Dear God, let’s hope the rumour is wrong. Why the hell would any club pay £6m for that perennial underachiever? OK, I accept that we could do with some more pace in the team, but the guy is approaching 30 and has never been anything other than an ordinary player. In many ways, he …

Braga defeat must force Sullivan’s hand

OK, the result is irrelevant and the game will be very quickly forgotten – one of the most tepid matches in the history of football with a total exclusion zone around both goal mouths apparently agreed before kick off – but the 90 or so sterile minutes illustrated perfectly our desperate need for another striker to both back up and support Carroll. Season after season we fail to address the most glaring weakness…
