Boy, Could We Do With A Repka

By on April 6, 2017 in Latest News, Opinion
We have struggled all season in defence. Whether it’s because of injuries, poor form, players being played out of position or simply just a lack of passion to get stuck in. We could really do with the spirit and passion of former Hammer, Tomas Repka. Or, more realistically, just someone to channel their inner Repka and try...

Eye On The Enemy; Crystal Palace (H)

By on January 13, 2017 in Interviews, Match Preview
Well, we could sure do with a win right now, couldn’t we? With everyone having already been laughing at the club, the humiliating FA Cup exit, now with Dimitri Payet-gate in full swing we could really do without a former manager coming back to inflict further pain on us. Oh, what’s that? Big Sam manages...

Our Desperate Hunt For Recruits

By on December 22, 2016 in Latest News, Opinion, Transfer News
Despite having climbed the Premier League table in recent weeks, extending the gap between ourselves and the relegation zone to five points, we are continuing to work on bringing fresh faces to the Olympic Stadium, reportedly contacting the Premier League’s top sides ahead of the transfer window. Despite such moves being long shots in the...

Eye On The Enemy – Sunderland (h)

By on October 21, 2016 in Interviews, Match Preview
After the win at Palace, we’ve got a home game against Sunderland. Bottom of the table, winless, Sunderland. If we win this game, surely we can put our poor start behind us and move on with our season. Plus, we won’t have to face off against Sam Allardyce, which is a relief…! I spoke to...

Eight Things We Learnt; Crystal Palace (a)

By on October 18, 2016 in Match Report, Opinion
A torrential downpour at Selhurst Park created a gloomy atmosphere which suitably matched the current predicament at West Ham, but I can finally begin to see light at the end of the tunnel after what could prove to be a crucial victory that turns our season around. The look on our manager’s face at the...

Eye On The Enemy – Crystal Palace (A)

By on October 14, 2016 in Interviews, Match Preview, Opinion
Eighth game of the season and it’s another London derby, with the short journey to SE London. Hopefully, James Tomkins plays and scores a hat-trick of celebrated own goals. I won’t hold my breath though. We spoke to our friends at @TheEaglesBeak – www.theeaglesbeak.com – about the game at the weekend, as always a big...

Eye On The Enemy – Man City (a)

By on August 27, 2016 in Interviews, Match Preview
  After our disappointing start to the season continued with a defeat to Astra, which left us tumbling out of Europa with a bitter taste in our mouths, again we find ourselves travelling to The Etihad. Marvellous. Pep Guardiola is slowly but surely raising the levels at City, so, perhaps playing them before they get...

Eye On The Enemy – Bournemouth (h)

By on August 20, 2016 in Interviews, Match Preview
  The first League game at the Olympic Stadium! The result at Chelsea, the knee-jerk reaction, and, players dropping like flies means we find ourselevs coming into this game under a fair bit of pressure. All, made by ourselves. Bournemouth had an equally tough start at Home to Manchester United, and will be looking to...

Does Daniel Levy hate West Ham?

By on February 6, 2015 in Opinion
It was a frustrating Transfer Deadline Day for West Ham. Despite being linked with several players and hours of negotiations, sadly no new faces appeared at Chadwell Heath before the window slammed shut. Emmanuel Adebayor was apparently one of those potential faces and it’s arguably a shame that a deal didn’t get over the line....

West Ham: Now officially a good team

By on January 27, 2015 in Opinion
I watched West Ham’s FA Cup fourth round match with more interest than usual, given that Bristol City have long been my nearest Football League side geographically. And while it was not the most thrilling encounter in West Ham’s history, the win provided us with the perhaps the best opportunity in recent years to bring...

Will the real Andy Carroll please stand up?

By on January 26, 2015 in Opinion
The superlatives know no end when it comes to Andy Carroll. Just take the two quotes below as an example: I.Holloway in 2010 – “He’s the best striker in the Premiership.” J.Hartson this season on Match of the Day – “Swansea simply could not cope with him and it was the sort of display I...

Jonjo Heuerman – a remarkable young man

By on January 19, 2015 in Interviews
Jonjo Heuerman is a remarkable person and has deservedly become a West Ham hero at a young age. His charity events have not only raised a lot of money for his chosen cause, but have also massively raised their profile too. When Jonjo got in touch with me and asked me to run another interview...
