Joey O’Brien: Our most underrated player?

I have been meaning to put this article together for quite sometime now but after randomly stumbling upon EA SPORTS’ Player Performance Index and see that Joey O’Brien is our highest-rated player. It made me think it is time to do so.  EA SPORTS’ Player Performance Index gives players points based on: The team’s outcome after a match A player’s performance per match  Appearances Goals

West Ham United make contact with Peter Crouch?

I never really write articles based on rumours when it comes being linked to players, but Indy Kaila  on twitter is an extremely reliable source. I cannot remember him getting anything wrong to be honest. So what does this tell us? Is Peter Crouch our alternative if the Andy Carroll deal breaks down? Or could is Big Sam looking…

We love you West Ham update: FarehamHammer’s departure

A couple of days ago I received a text from Fareham saying that his heart failure is getting worse and gone up from stage 2 to stage 3. As a result, he is going to have to stop writing for We love you West Ham with an immediate effect.  Fareham will now have to give up one of his biggest pride and joys as a result to his condition. …

Liverpool 0 – 0 West Ham: Collins kept Suarez in his pocket

Collins kept Suarez quiet Even though we only picked up one point, it still feels like a win to me. Yes we had eight men behind the ball most of the time, but we were missing four key-players in Joe Cole, Mark Noble, Andy Carroll and Winston Reid…that would be the equivalent of Liverpool playing without…

A few reasons why we should keep Carlton Cole

Carlton Cole’s contract expires at the end of the season and there is a lot of talk going on via social network channels and fan-sites  as to whether we should give him a new contract or not. I personally think we should keep him amongst our ranks as he is a rare breed in football …

Target 1 – Secure Safety

‘Get us over the line’ With 7 games to go until the end of the season, West Ham aren’t mathematically safe, but our claret and blue club are ever so close to securing Premier League status for what is going to be a great increase in finances from extra tv exposure next season. In the …

Our midfield still lacks creativity. Is it time for Ravel Morrison?

The midfield is a big problem in my opinion, can we accommodate Kevin Nolan? Much has been written and spoken about the need to bring in strikers in the transfer window. Even Sam has said if we had Lambert, we would have had a lot more points by now . For what its worth, I think West Ham will survive fairly …

A premature decision on Andy Carroll?

Sam Allardyce stated last night that he wants Carroll to join us on a permanent basis starting next season. I personally think that decision is a tad bit premature. Yes, Andy Carroll put in a really good shift yesterday but what if he goes for the rest of the season without scoring?  Liverpool are going to want to reduce their losses as much as possible when it comes to…

Andy Carroll’s brace a start of a good run?

Today was an excellent day for everyone associated with West Ham United Football Club. We picked up three more much-needed points to take us one step closer to that 38 point safety mark that Big Sam wants.  Carroll’s first goal was superb enough, but his second was world class. You can see the goal in its full glory below . Picture found …

Club or Country?

This article has been a long time coming (in my head). Are fans more excited by international or club football? There are reasons for both which I’ll go into, on the face of it you’d say ‘playing for your country is your highest honour’ but when the money within club football is …

Bony at The Boleyn Ground? More chance of Loic Remy, should QPR get relegated

Of course it’s spin! When these rumours about Wilfried Bony started circulating, I poured myself a JD and went on to Twitter to gauge the reaction of my fellow Hammers to Sullivan’s latest bit of spin. God, people were really worked up! Spurred on by one of our Owners spin doctors Hugh Southon, Hammers held a virtual midnight vigil..waiting for confirmation that…

The difference a goalscorer would’ve made this season

What we need more than anything is a goalscorer. Someone that is capable of scoring a goal on their own, as well as being a team player. This is why I believe we are being linked to Wilfried Bony, a player that has scored 26 goals in 24 matches for Vitesse in the Eredivisie league.  Fair enough is not the premier league, but to be able to…

My thoughts on Big Sam’s new contract

Sam Allardyce frustrates the hell out of even his biggest fans, with the way he regularly approaches matches with a negative manner. It must be extremely hard to find a West Ham fan that enjoys paying their hard-earned cash to go watch the ball get lumped up to the lone striker at every given chance. But one thing you cannot take away from Big Sam, if we stay up this season…

I hope the proceeds from the sale of The Boleyn Ground get invested in the team

Yes, the Olympic Stadium is a glittering arena and undoubtedly a good deal for the chairman, and hopefully West Ham United. Anyone who thinks we aren’t getting it for peanuts, and the tax payers are not funding the vast majority of it, are deluded in the extreme.God what do you think the true value of two million quid is …

A few points the so called ‘journalists’ are missing regarding the Olympic Stadium

I look on West Ham’s News Now page and all I see is Journalists spurting the same nonsense over and over again. One even goes as far as saying “I want the piece of the Olympic Stadium that I paid for.” Well, here you go, you can have this blade of grass which belong to you. I’m going to highlight a few facts that these so called Journalists…

Goodbye Boleyn Ground, Hello Olympic Stadium.

It will be a sad sad day at the end of the 2015-16 season when West Ham United play their last football match at Upton Park, a place that has heralded so many memories, both good and bad, of our great football club, the history within the Boleyn Ground and the love of the stadium from fans who have grown…

What is it with West Ham and set pieces?

The only West Ham corner picture I could find! For a team that is big in stature, we haven’t exactly done well from set pieces. As far as I can remember, the last time we scored directly from a free kick was Matthew Taylor against Portsmouth last season. In the summer…

Winston Reid earns captain’s armband for New Zealand

In my opinion, Winston Reid has been our most consistent player this season. He continuously puts in good performances and I would be extremely surprised if he fails to win our player of the season award. Due to his consistency, he has earned the right to wear the captain’s armband for his country on Friday night when New Zealand face New Caledonia, which is a world cup qualifying match .   New Zealand coach Ricki…
