Boxing Day Hammers

My Favourite Festive Matches With no Boxing Day game this season, I thought I would just give you my top 3 games from previous Boxing Day Fixtures. At number 3 – Portsmouth 1 West Ham 4 in the 2008/09 season.  This was the first season under Gianfranco Zola, when we thought everything was going to turn out alright.  The Icelandics were in charge of the club, and this is when Carlton Cole looked World Class. West Ham went …

In it for the long run….

I found myself ranting and raving at the tele during the West Brom game.  Moaning to my wife (she couldn’t care less) about Collins going for the long ball all the time, moaning about Jarvis not beating his man, moaning that we weren’t retaining possession.  I was even tweeting it during the game. I then stopped and realised that we are not the old West Ham, …

Who do you want to replace Diame?

So as we get set to enter the Christmas period, we go into it with a mini injury crisis.   With star man Mohammed Diame out for what could be up to 12 weeks, and Andy Carroll not due for return until the New Year as well, we are going to have to rely on some good performances from our squad players.  We have players who are gradually coming back to …

Diame Army

I have no doubt the press are stuck for stories at the moment, and with the January transfer window imminent, the papers are linking Mohammed Diame with a move away from the club. However, is there substance behind this rumour?  David Gold has commented on Twitter, saying that Diame does have a release clause in his contract.  What we don’t know is how much…

All hail Winston Reid….

Now all of the talk today has been about who wants the Olympic Stadium and who doesn’t. Me? I’d prefer to talk about the team, and more specifically, the most improved player in the West Ham squad and one of the first names on the team sheet. When Avram Grant signed Winston Reid from FC Midtjylland, I’m sure …

Has Carlton Cole got a future at West Ham?

First of all, I want to make sure anyone who reads this knows, I like Carlton Cole.  He has become a fans favourite following the loyalty he showed when he turned down moves to Galatasaray and Stoke City in the summer after we got relegated. He plays with passion and plays for the shirt. Cole, however, is probably the most frustrating player in the squad (following the departure of Julien Faubert). …

So who is the best Summer signing so far?

So we have played 12 games meaning we are nearly a third into the season.  We are currently sitting 7th (as I write) with a game in hand on most teams. Sam Allardyce has got us playing some excellent football, meaning we are not only winning games, we are also keeping clean sheets.  The fans have gradually warmed to Allardyce, and have started…

Three Lions for West Ham…not England!

As I sit here and watch another boring England International Friendly, I can’t help but think that Kevin Nolan has been pretty hard done by over his whole career, for not getting a call up. His career stats are pretty impressive for a midfielder, but I think Nolan was unfortunate, and in his own words, he’s been around at the same time as 3 of the best attacking midfielders in the world in Scholes, Gerrard and Lampard*spit*.  Not including substitute appearances…

The grass is not always ‘Greener’…..

I’m not sure about anyone else, but I feared the worst when Robert Green decided to leave on a Free Transfer to Q.P.R and we replaced him with a veteran Goalkeeper who couldn’t get a game at a relegated Bolton Wanderers. On his day, Green was as good as any ‘keeper in the Premier …
