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...

Lower League Potential Buys

By on June 13, 2016 in Opinion, Transfer News

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...

Who is West Ham target Mauro Icardi?

By on May 13, 2016 in Transfer News
The young tatted is Argentine probably best known over here for the affair he had with former teammate Maxi Lopez’s wife. However, his ability on the pitch should not be overlooked.

Alexandre Vs Michy Vs Wilfried

Here’s Ben Cust – @bacspace88 – taking a look at our supposed three top strikers we’re looking at bringing in this Summer. Do you agree, whose your choice to come in for next season?

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 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...
