“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” – Mahatma Gandhi Is it any wonder that the West Ham masses have become a disillusioned lot of dissenters and pleaders? Each and every supporter would only wish good things for their club and hopes are eternal for those splendid performances and rib-tickling…

A Momentous Day: My Reasons Why I Support West Ham United

I shouldn’t support West Ham. I don’t have the generational and geographic pull many of our fans have. My family are from Limerick City in the west of Ireland, my mum and dad moved over to East London in the 1960’s, my army of cousins and uncles all supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Celtic but my Dad chose West Ham. Why? I have found myself asking that question a few times through the years, would it …

Zorro, The Mysterons and Angel Delight

For the better part of this season and the last, I have yearned for players to rise to perform at their best and display a maturation of the potential we always hoped was there. Mostly, the fans have been disappointed with individual performances, certainly any peaks have spiked only for brief periods but flat lining again as the players and team failed to take stock and gather any kind of momentum. There were obvious failings in the last campaign, however Bilic …

Moore’s the Pitiful Display!

West Ham fans arrived at the London Stadium on Saturday last to spur on the team to better performance and result, to march in protest and to remember a fallen hero some 25 years past. It was meant to be so much Moore but the spectacle was anything but and it was hardly befitting his great memory. In all of the hullabaloo it seems many had forgotten what the day was supposed to be about. There were videos …

Why Can’t We Blame the Russians for Our Siberian Winter?

The blame game is the folly of those who would stand, stare and sneer without any inward reflection. The West Ham woes are a collection of failings that may have coincidental sources but none are so grand to be identified as solitary causes. “We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your…
