Friday Bubbles – 22.8.14

By on August 22, 2014 in Daily Bubbles
Joey O’Brien: “It was disappointing not to get anything from the match last week, because looking at how it went I thought there was only going to be one winner. To lose it the way we did was hard to take, but it’s gone now and we’re fully focused on getting three points on Saturday....

Thursday Bubbles – 21.8.14

Sam Allardyce on his striker pursuit: “We’ve done that search and they’re here. The problem is that they’re not quite ready yet but we will use them if and when we can. Now Sakho has arrived as well as Enner , they’re moving along with their fitness on a daily basis and will certainly be...

Wednesday Bubbles – 20.8.14

Ricardo Vaz Te: “I feel good, I feel like there is another gear coming up, which is good. I’m just getting sharper and sharper, but you only get sharper with the games.  Last year was very unfortunate. If memory serves, I started five games and my fifth one was at Swansea, where I dislocated my...

Winston Reid praises the new signings following defeat against Spurs: “There were some good positives out there. The new boys did well, Aaron and Cheikhou from the start and Enner came on as well. For the new boys it’s nice to get them on the pitch early and there’s still a couple...

Monday Bubbles – 18.8.14

By on August 18, 2014 in Daily Bubbles
Sam Allardyce: “Everything is the start. Everything is then a trigger to the whole season and whereabouts you are going to lay and finish. The perfect example is our first two seasons in the Premier League, where we acquired 14 points in the first eight games but only eight points from the first eight last...

Thursday Bubbles – 29.5.14

Sam Allardyce on Mauro Zarate: “This signing is based on his record from being in Argentina, where he has scored the goals that he has scored because we are looking for some goals,” Big Sam explained, “plus the fact that, at a much younger age, he had the experience of the Premier League with Birmingham...

Wednesday Bubbles – 28.5.14

Mauro Zarate has joined West Ham on a three-year deal: “My reaction is that I am very happy to be at West Ham. This is a new chance for me and I want to play. I think I played well for Velez this season and that was important for me. I had some good team-mates...

Monday Bubbles – 26.5.14

Kevin Nolan: “You want to stick with Sam because you have to look at what he has did at Bolton – he took the club from a Championship side to competing in Europe in five years and his record speaks for itself when he is given the time to develop the team the way he...

Friday Bubbles – 23.5.14

West Ham United have issued the Club’s Retained List of players at the end of the 2013/14 season. Joe Cole, George McCartney and Jack Collison have all been released. David Sullivan: “I don’t want to just aim for top 10. We should be aiming for top six. I want to be looking down the table...

Wednesday Bubbles – 21.5.14

James Collins: “I’ll never say I’ve been outstanding and I’ll never say I’ve been rubbish, but it’s been alright. I’d have liked to have played a few more games – I had a fiew niggles throughout the season but that’s going to happen at my age. The other centre backs have been great – in...

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...
