Winston Reid’s contract situation

Winston Reid announced today that he would not be going on international duty so he doesn’t aggravate a ‘dead leg’ injury he sustained early on in our game against stoke. Of course if this is the case the best place for him to be is at the club and resting his leg which leads to the questions is West Ham the best place for him anymore? The fans have really taken Reid into their hearts but everyone…

SIX Winston Reid alternatives for West Ham to consider

News inside the club seems to suggest that we are losing the battle to keep star performer Winston Reid at the club with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United readying bids for the centre back.

Would leaving West Ham be the biggest mistake of Reid’s career?

When Winston Reid joined West Ham in the summer of 2010, not a great deal was known about him. Apart from a well taken headed goal for New Zealand in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, nobody had seen him play or heard of him before. So signing him was something of a risk, but one the club were… Read more »

West Ham 3-1 Liverpool – Player Ratings

Well, that’s what I call a superb performance. Co-chaiman David Gold described it as ‘one of the best overall performances I’ve seen since I’ve been at the club’ and it’s hard to disagree. It took me 45 minutes to realise that I was watching West Ham. We looked composed at the back and dangerous going… Read more »

Is the ‘West Ham way’ here to stay?

West Ham produced another fine display against Liverpool on Saturday night to get their first home win of the season. A magnificent team performance nullified the effects of a Liverpool side who only narrowly won against Ludogorets in the Champions League during the week. Although a lot of the media coverage had centered around Liverpool’s… Read more »

How can West Ham stop Liverpool’s new boy?

Mario Balotelli – The big, strong, athletic striker hit the scoresheet in Champions League action midweek and will be looking to create havoc at the Boleyn Ground today. So what do West Ham do to make sure that doesn’t happen? Maybe man-marking is the answer. Balotelli, as everyone knows, has a short fuse and is prone… Read more »

West Ham during the international break

With no match until Hull Away next Monday, I saw the international break as a time to sit back and enjoy some stress-free football. Current West Ham players and internationals such as Cheikou Kouyate, Winston Reid and Enner Valencia all played for their respected countries. Winston Reid captained his side to a devastating 3-1 loss to Uzbekistan in a key international match. Meanwhile, Cheikou Kouyate played an encouraging 87 minutes before being substituted in …

What has happened to West Ham United?

Pre-season friendly matches are important to all football clubs and players because they are designed to get the players back into a game mentality. It is also a chance for them to keep their fitness levels up. For the fans however, while the performances might matter, they know that the results don’t really mean anything… Read more »

Where do we need to improve?

2 summer signings down and hopefully more to come because we definitely need it. Before the season finished I didn’t think midfield was a massive area that needed improving compared to other areas that the team lack in but now with Taylor, Collison, Cole gone and possibly Diame and Ravel leaving and the fact that we chose not to keep Nocerino we do need some more players. I’ve said before I think it would be great to see a…

West Ham’s ‘Dream Defence’ next season

One of the highlights of last season was our defence and the number of clean sheets we kept. But since then we’ve seen George McCartney released, Pablo Armero sent back to Napoli and, of course, the not so premature release of Razvan Rat. So we’re going to need to strengthen at the back a little,… Read more »

Cementing a top half finish

I remember saying we have to get a new manager when we got thumped by Forest and Man City. Well Sam has made me eat Humble Pie! Firstly, that is a great thing to happen because it means we are winning games. Secondly, at the same time the Winston Reid’s, Andy Carroll’s etc have made a comeback and made the incumbent first team players work harder than our youngsters were ever going to do.

Four players who deserve new contracts

As the end of the season gets closer we can’t help but think to summer and hope the rest of the season goes to plan. At the moment it looks like we’re staying up but there is an air of caution because it’s so tight at the bottom of the table and we have a tough run of fixtures for the last 6 or so games. In terms of players in the summer of course we need…

Why West Ham have the best defence in the league

West Ham the best defense in the league! Before anyone criticizes me for this article, if there was a competition for the best defense in the league, I would certainly argue that West Ham have a strong case. The stats certainly suggest so. We have conceded 34 goals this season, which is by no means bad. In fact it is the 9th best conceded total in the league. However our whole defense have been injured this year, so much so we have been…
