My all-time West Ham United XI

In the 23-years of my life I have seen some truly wonderful players and some, well let’s face it, awful ones as well. So I thought, seeing as it has been a bit of a slow news week, I would share my all- time West Ham XI. There are a few rules, of course, to adhere to, one being I have to have been alive whilst they played in Claret and Blue, otherwise Sir Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst and Alan Devonshire would be top of the list...

New Hammers’ half-term reports – Payet top of the class

With half term around the corner, and those dreaded ‘report cards’ in the post, I thought it was about time I analysed our new signings nine games into their West Ham careers. It was a busy old summer for the Hammers, bringing in no fewer than 10 major first-team signings. Some have enjoyed a fruitful start to life in the East End whilst some are still yet to have their chance in Claret and Blue. I’ve taken a look at seven who...

West Ham not reflected on well in ‘Price of Football’ survey

In the week that has seen the price of football in England revealed by a BBC study, it is safe to say the statistics don’t look too good if you are a football fan. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that statistics show poorly for us Hammers. Having been a season ticket holder for five years now, I have seen at first hand how prices have risen and fluctuated. As a student and a ‘young Adult’, I paid around £350 per season for my...

The reasons behind West Ham’s indifferent start at home

It’s been a strange old season so far for West Ham United, three wins out of three on the road and just one at home. That is in stark contrast to that of years gone by, in fact the Hammers only won three games away from home all of last season under Sam Allardyce. Under Slaven Bilic though, it has been a historic few weeks. Wins at the Emirates, Anfield and the Etihad made the Irons the only club in Premier League history to secure...

A historic week for West Ham

Well, what a difference two weeks can make. A new captain in the form of Mark Noble, four new deadline day arrivals and our 52-year hoodoo at Anfield is finally over. There is only really one place to start isn’t there. I’ll be honest, I walked away from the Boleyn after our 4-3 defeat against Bournemouth feeling pretty glum, but a week later my emotions went full circle from pessimism about our season, to blind optimism. Three-nil...

Thank you and goodbye, Kevin Nolan

After months of speculation, West Ham United have confirmed that former captain Kevin Nolan has left the club. Nolan, who joined the Hammers from Newcastle in 2011 months after the club had been relegated, enjoyed an up and down career with the East London club. His form has tailed off quite badly in recent months where he was  struggling to keep up with play and struggling to do what he was so good at when he first joined the club,...
