It was always going to kick off wasn’t it? Thankfully, however,the story  it was only in The Sun and repeated a little later by The Star.

“Outside FA Cup replay chance” for big pair

Manu Lanzini and Diafra Sakho have “outside chances” of being included in the squad for tomorrow evening’s FA Cup replay against Liverpool.

Valencia Verdict – The fans speak

Enner Valencia tends to split opinion among Irons  fans. After suffering his share of injuries he has managed four goals and  goals and two assists in six games so are we convinced this is a 12 million player.

West Ham have already started a preliminary round of talks with Slaven Bilic over a deal aimed at keeping him at the club for the next five years.

The crazy cost of not getting a replay ticket

Some things have to be done …and this is one of them. There is little point in ClaretandHugh – or any other independent website claiming it is here for the supporters – if it doesn’t raise their perfectly justified complaints. Last week we drew attention to the wicked problems people were encountering in trying to […]

When patient football becomes pointless football

I have no problem with patient football….to a point. Certainly it’s an awful lot better than hoofball which in the context of yesterday’s match against Southampton would have served us no better than the pass and “probe” (I use the word carefully) approach we adopted against a well drilled defence. Yes I understand the team […]

Byram on the brink

West Ham new boy Sam Byram will need to be on his very best first team behaviour until the start of the Aptil. The £3.8 million right back found himself back in the referee’s black book yesterday which leves him staring at a two game suspension should he stray the wrong side of the law […]

Saints v Irons – the fans react!

How we rated the Irons against Saints

Adrian: Little to do and no chance with the goal. Did his best to distribute well and set things up 6 Tomkins: Off injured in the second half. Defended well but still not the answer going forward 6 Reid: Decent afternoon and saw our best chance – a header – well saved 7 Collins: Steady […]

Slav keeps his anger under control – JUST!

I really wouldn’t have wanted to be a West Ham player this evening given the clear mood of Slaven Bilic when he appeared before the cameras. After missing a very big opportunity on the south coast this was one very unhappy Croat who whilst refusing to point fingers looked like a man who’s lost a […]

Shoddy Hammers fail against Saints ten men

There’s little point in beating around the bush…that was a poor performance with the team finally paying the price for a shoddy start which is becoming as much a feature of the season as the big away victories. The first half – as it has been on many occasions this season – was a total […]

Hammers fingers crossed for Koeman ‘curse’

It would be pitching it too high to claim that Slaven Bilic is on a revenge mission at Southampton. But missing out to Ronald Koeman as January’s manager of the month earlier this month gives a nice little ‘grudge match’ plot to the game at St Mary’s. Co chairman David Gold mind you looks at […]

Payet due for take-off again at St Mary’s

By his own remarkable standard Dimi Payet may have been off the pace over the last couple of games. He had little impact at Liverpool and was again struggling to make his usual enormous presence felt against Aston Villa on Tuesday evening. However, I expect him to shine tonight and a return to his best […]

Leroy on the Saints Austin Factor

It’s going to be very interesting to see whether Ronald Koeman goes with Charlie Austin this evening. I understand the former QPR striker is fit and given the long reported on/off transfer history with West Ham it could be a fascinating sub plot. It’s a game we really will enjoy. I know that for a fact […]

Saints boss Ronald Koeman does not believe the clash against us tonight is anyay a European football decider. He has enormous respect for the Irons having come out of the Upton Park match a a 2-1 loser a little over a month but says  it’s far too early to think in terms of deciders with […]
