A Call for Unity & A Shout for Solidarity!

The turbulent winds roll through the valley floor carrying away the thunderous sounds of united drums and the once brothers on the field of conflict with onlookers’ roar have disappeared behind a veil of unattainable wealth, they have lost the common touch and are sinking with hidden ambition. The modern fan is not foolhardy enough to believe that their Premier League football club always shares their same identity, collective goals and tribulations. However to sever the ties with …

Martin & Joanna’s Wedding

The last time I tasted FA Cup glory as a supporter was in 1980. My nuts hadn’t even dropped, now it seems like everything else has. I got married on Saturday 20th May 1995. Everything was booked the year before. Church, reception, flowers cars and all that, then it dawned on me FA Cup final day. I’d half joked to my fiancé Rachel that it might be tricky with the cup.

Here we belong, fighting to survive in a world with the darkest powers” – Queen I’ve had a theory for a while now that West Ham have been running on the margins and are in desperate need of recentring but have lost their way. David Moyes has to be given a lot of credit thus far for producing results and performances out of a squad that’s as …

Carry On Catenaccio 

Oh what a carry on! What a laughable set of circumstances that would make our journey to the end of the season fraught with danger and pessimism. We are on a one way street to defensive football, a one dimensional success but will fail to entertain the fans or any smirking onlookers either. I can foresee a fanbase getting increasingly frustrated with the type of football they will witness. There will be social media lynch mobs verbalising …

I’m the Boss: Anyone for a game?

So, our worst fears came true, West Ham were completely outplayed by the League 1 leaders and the problems only further compounded by a nasty looking injury to Obiang and a 6 game ban for Masuaku following his sending off. The reaction to the defeat seems either to be complete apathy (not bothered about the up anyway) or blind fury (Moyes out, the Board out etc). Let’s be clear, Moyes did not save many for Tuesday mainly because he couldn’t. We face so …
