Anadin Extra and the Singing Ultra

The pressure has been mounting for some time without release to ease fears or quell the rallying calls for uprising. The movers and shakers have brought issues to the boardroom table, to be met with comprehension, a quasi commitment to restore and rectify but layered with the verbiage of a seasoned business spin doctor and political lobbyist.

Something no hero will ever defeat and now I know that only love can truly save the world. So I stay, I …

So just as the bulbs in my garden start to show along comes a sky fall of snow that quickly covers them up. They’re still there frozen, ready to go again.

Time To Keep Our Head Above Water

This has been another week where events off the pitch have somewhat overshadowed team matters, as of yesterday the Real West Ham Fans Action Group March has been cancelled with the board offering to match any fundraising aimed at the march and the total being donated to the cause of young West Ham fan Isla Caton who is suffering from a rare form of cancer.

More Than One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest!

There is much to question within our world and more that confuses, leaving people wondering if whatever they are hearing or seeing is actually real.

Ex-Hammers Striker Praises Current Manager For Treatment Of Star Player

Former West Ham United forward John Hartson has heaped public praise on current manager David Moyes for the way he has been able to harness the ability of attacker Marko Arnautovic since his arrival at the London Stadium.

Fantastic Cress…Well Good Enough For Me

We have seen a light fade from the last ember of candle wick, then witness a rekindling flame that has steadily grown in intensity to light up our defence and give purpose to our left side advances. Aaron Cresswell, who like many others suffered with performance blues and confidence lows over the last two seasons, has demonstrated a growing presence and confidence in Moyes’s rejigged back three. I readily admit that I would often be critical of his performances, the…

The West Ham juggernaut ground to a sudden halt against Liverpool last weekend. It was a long journey and although it was well tuned it wasn’t at the races versus a red machine that was firing on all cylinders.

The Parcel at the Post Office

At the beginning of this season I was in a general state of well being, content in my slumber and fat with relief that West Ham had escaped the misery and would go again into another campaign…surely it would be so much better than the last?
