Where Are They Now?: Marlon Harewood

Strong, robust and possessing a born goal-scoring talent, Marlon Harewood was certainly the type of player that the Claret & Blue Army tends to warm to and he enjoyed a fantastic spell in East London. But, why did Harewood depart Upton Park at the time he did? How did he become a cult hero in a Hammers shirt? And where is he now?

Robbie Slater 1995-1996 A National Champion while still in his teens, Slater first caught the eye of Nottingham Forest in the early 80’s before eventually securing a move to Anderlecht in 1989. The Belgian side were one of the bigger teams in Europe at the time and the industrious midfielder struggled to make an impression on the first team and so moved on to French club Lens in 1990.

I’m the Boss: Confidence and positivity a must

Swansea are next up for West Ham and this is a must-win game for the Hammers. Swansea are a team that West Ham have to beat at home and we cannot let our fragile confidence affect us in this fixture. Michail Antonio’s absence is a huge blow for West Ham, his directness and forcefulness will be missed. I will stick with Carroll from the start and keep Hernandez on the bench…

Did Bilic get it tactically right?

Slaven Bilic’s tactics have been quite confusing to most fans recently with the most confusing obviously playing Javier Hernandez out of position by playing him at left or right wing. Many fans including myself thought it was bizarre how when Michail Antonio got injured against Tottenham last Saturday he brought on Andy Carroll instead of the straight position swap for Andre Ayew who later made an appearance. At the early stage of the…

Idle Thoughts on how it all started

What causes us to develop an attachment for one particular football team in preference to another? Some will choose simply to follow their local team. The first people I remember as having any interest in football were my Dad’s cousin, Tony, and his father. Often we would visit my Aunt in Leytonstone on a Saturday afternoon and around about teatime, the pair of them would come home, having spent the afternoon watching Leyton Orient, whose ground was within walking distance. Another …

Slaven Bilic’s Modern “Academy Of Football”

Many Hammers may say that nowadays, the term “Academy Of Football” can no longer be used to describe our Youth System, with no products of notable talent being brought through the ranks in the last ten or so years. However, there is no doubting or questioning the rare and quite tantalizing Development Squad that we currently possess at The London Stadium, but who are they? Today, we look at the…
