By on January 13, 2017 in Latest News, Opinion, Transfer News
  West Ham’s season can’t look any gloomier. We have hit rock bottom. A 5-0 mauling in the FA cup was followed by news, this morning, that Dimitri Payet has requested to leave. What happens next with the player remains to be seen, and, Bilic has set his stall out. You are staying, you have...

I’m Forever Blowing Balon D’or’s

By on October 25, 2016 in Latest News, Opinion
This week something quite remarkable happened. Something I honestly never thought would happen in my lifetime. West Ham’s Dimitri Payet has been nominated for the Balon D’or. Sitting alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is a footballer who plies his trade for West Ham United. Nobody could have predicted this when we signed him last...

Time To Reevaluate And Look Elsewhere?

By on August 2, 2016 in Latest News, Opinion, Transfer News
  Surprise, surprise, Champions League calibre players aren’t that interested in your club when you have no Champions League football or a truck load of money to offload at their new London pad. Gold and Sullivan didn’t help the clubs situation by saying we had £40m to spend on this ‘top class’ striker that we...

The Striker Search Rolls On…

By on June 2, 2016 in Latest News, Opinion, Transfer News
The quest for a top drawer striker started so promisingly with Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi being placed at the top of the list. A deluge of bids for the former has ended in failure, for now, whilst no more than speculation has linked Batshuayi with a move to the Hammers. As recent developments with Carlos...

Early Additions Prove Club’s Ambition To Improve

By on March 31, 2016 in Latest News, Opinion, Transfer News
Here’s Ben Cust’s new piece, you can follow him at @bacspace88. Transfer windows are never really closed, just ask Barcelona, even when it is sealed tight by FIFA you can still sign players. The best teams see these windows are registration ones, rather than, signing windows. Top continental sides like Bayern, Barca, Juve, etc acquire players in the back...

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...
