Chris Wood equalises late for Burnley to thwart 10-man West Ham

There are games that are defined by false nines. This was an afternoon that, for better and worse, revolved around old-fashioned target men. Long before Chris Wood headed Burnley’s equaliser, Andy Carroll had made a dramatic departure, sent off for two challenges that evoked earlier eras and invited suggestions of idiocy. His Burnley counterpart eventually ensured it cost West Ham and the points were shared in a game some …

Premier League clubs missed their chance to keep Christmas Eve special | Barry Glendenning

West Ham v Newcastle, a 560-mile round trip, has been mooted for a Super Sleigh Bell Sunday on the night before Christmas, along with Arsenal v Liverpool The almost total lack of regard in which broadcasters hold football fans is no secret, so it should have come as no surprise to learn that Sky Sports is proposing to reschedule Arsenal’s home match against Liverpool for Christmas Eve in what the Football Supporters’ Federation has described as “a …

Joe Hart: ‘Playing for England was what other people did, I just supported’

England’s goalkeeper will surpass Gordon Banks’ 73 caps when he lines up against Slovenia on Thursday and still dreams of achieving that ‘special moment’ Joe Hart has first-hand experience of that sickening sense of helplessness, the one that grips any opponent whenever the ball veers towards Harry Kane alone inside the penalty area. He endured it a little over a week ago at the London Stadium. He would have been aware out of the corner of his eye of the forward …

Slaven Bilic mutes the mutiny at the last but West Ham’s battlers need a plan

The manager praised his side’s refusal to give up against Swansea but fraying tempers in the stands suggest fans’ favourite is using up the last of his goodwill Midway through the first half, Slaven Bilic switched his wingers. Michail Antonio went left, André Ayew went right. It was a sure sign that Bilic’s tactics were malfunctioning. In theory it made sense for West Ham United to start in a 4-4-2 system, which plays to the strengths of both Andy Carroll and Javier Hernández, …

Diafra Sakho hits West Ham’s winner in basement battle against Swansea

As the minutes ticked away at the London Stadium and the mood in the stands became increasingly ugly, this started to feel like the afternoon when West Ham’s supporters finally turned on Slaven Bilic. They had not hesitated to make their displeasure clear at several points in a dreadful game, jeering whenever yet another tentative move ran out of steam, and there was outright dissent when the fourth official’s board showed Javier Hernández’s number instead of Andy…

Football rumours: West Ham to replace Slaven Bilic with Carlo Ancelotti?

Today’s rumours are on the hoof Spanish assist-machine David Silva is believed to be flattered by interest from Milan , who spent €175m on an overhaul during the summer, but are currently languishing in seventh place in Serie A, already six points off the pace set by Napoli and Juventus.

Slaven Bilic feeling the heat after Spurs shine glaring light on West Ham flaws | David Hytner

Coach retains fans’ goodwill but the way his side flirted with humiliation against Tottenham was ominous for a man aware of the harsh realities of his profession Slaven Bilic knows how it goes in his line of work. Once a manager is in danger, once the narrative becomes entrenched, it can begin to feel like the long kiss goodbye. “Once that’s opened, then it basically doesn’t stop,” the West Ham manager said after his team’s 3-2 home…

Tottenham hang on to win with 10 as West Ham battle for Slaven Bilic

On a slow-burn afternoon, Tottenham Hotspur were always just about beyond West Ham United’s reach. Two late goals after Serge Aurier had been sent off with 20 minutes to go dragged a previously dormant side back into this game and drew the first real crackle of noise from the home crowd. A 3-2 defeat will put a hopeful gloss on this performance, and provide Slaven Bilic with evidence of the spirit and drive lurking within his team. The problem for…

It hurts but Tottenham’s blueprint could work for stagnating West Ham

Slaven Bilic’s side will bare their teeth against Spurs on Saturday while grudgingly admitting their rivals’ evolutionary process has its merits For West Ham United supporters, the notion their club could do worse than take inspiration from Tottenham Hotspur in their drive to evolve may seem like blasphemy.

Marko Arnautovic helps West Ham to easy victory over Bolton Wanderers

West Ham United could have been forgiven for checking the terms and conditions on the receipt when Marko Arnautovic pressed the self-destruct button in only his second match for the club. That preposterous red card against Southampton last month was certainly not what West Ham had in mind when they made him their record buy in the summer. They thought they were getting a player with the craft and guile to make them forget about Dimitri Payet, …

Gareth Barry equals record as West Bromwich Albion and West Ham draw

The ironic cheers from the home fans when the home side belatedly decided to see if Joe Hart was still awake summed up the hopeless lack of entertainment here. It reflected poorly on West Bromwich Albion that Hal Robson-Kanu’s tame header was one of their better chances on a dull, grey afternoon, and there were loud boos when Paul Tierney put everyone inside the Hawthorns out of their misery by blowing…

West Ham battle past Huddersfield to ease Bilic’s fear of following De Boer

Second-half goals from Pedro Obiang and André Ayew sealed West Ham’s first win of the season and alleviated the pressure on Slaven Bilic. The West Ham manager admitted the sacking of Frank de Boer by Crystal Palace earlier on Monday had been “in the back of my mind” before the match. On the night, West Ham United did not look like a team of experienced, expensively recruited players. Their style was disjointed, their shape questionable…

David Sullivan’s salvo bursts Slaven Bilic’s fragile bubble at West Ham

The bizarre recriminations following the failure to sign William Carvalho ramp up the pressure on the manager after West Ham’s poor start to the season David Sullivan, to quote an increasingly demob happy Slaven Bilic, likes to talk.
