Earlier this month, Ladbrokes launched a brilliant new quiz called ‘How well do you know your team?’ in which supporters are asked 10 questions about the club they follow. I’ve always thought of West Ham as a club who pride themselves on their East London rooted history – I know I do – so it’s...

Does Daniel Levy hate West Ham?

By on February 6, 2015 in Opinion
It was a frustrating Transfer Deadline Day for West Ham.
