West Ham transfer window: your verdict?

Well after a rather depressing deadline day lets be realistic, we haven’t had the worst window ever. Yes we need a striker but we have improved massively, there are just a few questions that I would love Allardyce and the owners to answer… Why hasn’t Rat been playing? This really baffles me… if we have such little wages to spare, why would you ‘waste’ (only because he doesn’t play) wages …

The Portuguese forward who helped us return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, but then never really pushed on, has expressed his desire to leave West Ham as he is becoming fustrated with life at the club.

West Ham look to loan Roger Rojas… Sorry who?

After the endless top strikers we’ve been linked with we may well be finally getting a striker! I’m just not quite sure there are any West Ham fans who knew who Roger Rojas actually was before we were linked. now I do tend to reserve judgement until these players have been involved before I question a deal… but this seems very similar to the Wellington Paulista deal…

Newcastle 0-0 West Ham

It wasn’t one for the purists but a decent results for Allardyce ‘s West Ham away, at St. James’ Park, nonetheless.

West Ham 2-0 Cardiff: Great start

Well that was easier than I was expecting. Cardiff just didn’t really offer what I thought they would, and we didn’t even need to be anywhere near our best to beat them. There isn’t much you can really say about our performance, we didn’t play bad but didn’t play great. We did what we had to do and a solid victory came as a result. Defensively…

Maiga needs to prove himself

With the arrival of Stewart Downing utilising what was left of our transfer budget, barring loan signings, Maiga will be our second choice striker. This worries me, the forward has not done enough in my opinion to prove he has what it takes. Allardyce must see something I don’t. Maiga seems like he could be okay playing with a strike partner but on his own I don’t think he has…

Guadiana Tournament: Mixed results

Disregarding the fact that the set up of the tournament makes absolutely no sense… Our performance have also been quite bizarre. Against Sporting Lisbon we got a really good run out and the likes of Morrison impressed (again), however today’s performance could have been a greater contrast. Against Sporting the added intensity to the game suited us and seemed to rev up the players. The…
