Letting Collison move to Bournemouth is madness!

Ok, so we all know the problem. We have a team that can’t score goals. The strikers are useless, and the midfielders get a nose bleed if they get anywhere near the box – Nolan apart who is now so slow that even Faye could pick up his jogs. True Morrison may be another exception but, if we are honest, he was pretty ineffective for the …

Look at the important stats you idiot Allardyce!

Listen to him! What an idiotic twat. It was the referee’s fault. Well it always is when we lose according to Allardyce, but this time he does have a point. It was the players’ fault. We created chances and when you create chances you should score goals. It’s like a …

Tigers 1 Hammers 0 – Referee Friend Receives Hull City’s Man of the Match Award!

Well the penalty awarded to Hull in the first half was as soft as wet toilet paper but debateable if O’Brien did, indeed, stupidly shove Brady in the back, but the failure to award an equaliser penalty for the most obvious hand ball you will see this season was utterly inexplicable. Livermore clearly put his arm to ball and …

Half Time – Kevin a Friend of Hull City!

Was it a penalty? It looked bloody soft to me, but Hull City’s best Friend, the referee, saw a push from O’Brien in the back of Brady and, following a fantastic swallow dive by the Hull player, the pen was awarded. If O’Brien did push him, he should be shot because Tomkins had the situation under control and was heading the ball clear. So, crass…

Allardyce opts for dog crap!

So Maiga starts again, meaning that Vaz Te is sat on the bench once more alongside Petric. The selection is perverse but the pig headed one knows he knows best, so it looks like we are stuck with Maiga at least until Petric or Cole are fit to start. If I was Vaz Te, I would be well pissed. OK…

Vaz Te or Maiga?

Well, it shouldn’t take long to answer that one. Strawberries & cream or dog shit? London or Leeds? Italy or Albania? Ron Greenwood or Avram Grant? Paradise or Purgatory? So tell me, why the hell has Maiga started so many games whilst Vaz Te has been ignored? Bloody hell, Maiga …

Echoes of Avram Grant as West Ham Progress in League Cup

I did not see the game but the Cardiff equaliser was depressingly predictable after we took an early two goal lead. Without Reid, the centre of the defence is short of pace, whilst Chambers and McCartney were never going to provide a sense of solidity on the flanks. A win is a win, but the fact …

Ex Sunderland Boss Di Canio next in line to manage West Ham?

So, how many West Ham fans want him now? Not so long ago, the Claret and Blue Klan were hailing Il Duce as the best thing to happen to football management since Brian Clough. Any suggestions that he was too hot headed, and would be a disaster as a manager, were met with howls of…

Was Noble to blame for the Everton defeat?

Noble’s critics were quick to blame their bête noir for the defeat against Everton, conveniently forgetting that Everton’s first equaliser resulted from a foul by Collins in exactly the same area of the pitch. There was no argument about the award when Collins rashly and needlessly tripped Barkley, but for some reason, Ginge has not…

West Ham 2 Everton 3 – Relegation struggle confirmed

OK, the excuses will be made. Did Noble connect with the ball before he was sent off? Probably yes. Should he have been sent off therefore, even if a foul was awarded? Probably no. Did he even deserve the first yellow for the tug on Mirallis? Some referees would have considered the free kick punishment enough, especially given the fact that Reid cleared the ball anyway. However, moan as much as …

Everton trembling as Maiga leads the line again!

So, despite looking as toothless at Southampton as a ninety five year old who has just gone ten rounds with Floyd Mayweather, the only change to the team is enforced, with Rat coming in for Demel. Everton’s defenders must be quaking in their boots at the thought of trying to shut out Maiga and co for ninety minutes! And …

How brainless is Maiga?

Right on cue, Captain Kev has made a statement in support of West Ham’s strikers and Maiga in particular. Nolan insists Maiga can and will score but Nolan is missing the point, just as Maiga misses the target. It’s not the guy’s ability that’s the problem, it’s his footballing intelligence. The guy is literally brainless. Just watch his movement, or rather lack of movement, when he doesn’t …

Furious Allardyce Blames Referee Marriner

Funny, I thought Allardyce set up to draw the game, so it seems a bit rich for him to be pointing the finger at referee Andre Marriner for the failure to score and take home 3 points. Listen to Doctor Evil and you would think we were somehow robbed. And the reason? Because Schneiderlin …

Southampton’s Saints 0 Cynical Sinners 0 – a Snore Draw!

Allardyce will be pleased but if every game was played like this, football would be dead as a spectator sport inside twelve months. Doctor Evil has the perfect excuse, of course – no Carroll, no Downing and no Cole – but he put this squad together and with the route one totem removed, we have no idea how to score. True Diame forced a great save in the …

Half Time Southampton 0 West Ham 0 – Not bad for 10 men!

Ok, it again hasn’t been terribly pretty but it hasn’t all been long ball either. What would be the point when Maiga is the lone man up front and he has been as useless as ever. We really are playing with 10 men at the moment and I can’t believe that either Vaz Te or Nolan as the target man could be …

West Ham risk points deduction as Sullivan flouts the rules

So that’s it then. Having surrendered five points in our one club quest to stay the right side of the Financial Fair Play rules, David Sullivan has suddenly decided to face up to the wrath of the footballing authorities rather than trust to the possibility that, sometime this side of …

And I thought Sullivan & Gold were supposedly West Ham fans!

Sullivan and Gold are West Ham fans? Don’t make me laugh! All West Ham fans know from painful experience one, absolute, unalterable, never to be refuted or denied or challenged law: if it can go wrong, it bloody well will go wrong, and with fcuking great knobs on! So, we break our…

Carroll injury exposes the grand folly of Sullivan, Gold and Princess Brady

So that’s it then, Carroll has sustained another injury and is beginning to bear all the hallmarks of another Dean Ashton or Keiron Dyer. But at least when those two inaction men booked in to their favourite treatment suite, the club had somebody to fill their shirts. Not so this time. Amazingly, or should I say typically, West Ham fans have been slow to condemn the brinkmanship …

Leave it late and you get what you deserve – sweet FA!

So the truth is out! Far from sitting on their dildos, messers Sullivan, Gold and Brady were moving heaven and earth on the last day of the window trying to sign a striker. Ba, Lukaku and Bendtner were all on the shopping list, but sadly all three deals fell at the final hurdle. Two questions arise from this, of course. The first is, why did we…

Saint Carlton agrees to play for nothing

So when is the guy going to be canonized? Such is Carlton’s love for the club that he is happy to play for nothing. How else can we explain the club’s attempt to re-sign him? According to the line spun by Big Brother Sullivan, and swallowed by the opened mouthed chicks in the Claret and Blue nest, we couldn’t sign another striker until somebody left because of a limit on…

West Ham operating on wingers and a prayer!

What a joke, but, to quote The Smiths, that joke ain’t funny anymore, it’s too close to home and too near the bone! The window has closed and unless transfer papers have been couriered in secret, Sullivan, Gold & Allardyce haves decided that plan B really is one plan too many. We have Andy Carroll, …

Allardyce calls for Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland to be deducted points

Interesting. Backed into a bit of a corner in the post match Talk Bollocks interview, Allardyce repeated the myth that West Ham cannot buy without selling because of the new financial regulations for clubs in the Prem. A slightly intimidated interviewer had the audacity, like this blog, to raise the issue …
