Is Moyes 11-Year West Ham stay hope a pipe dream?

Is Moyes 11-Year West Ham stay hope a pipe dream?

West Ham United manager David Moyes recently claimed that he would love to oversee a long period at the London club, similar to his spell at Everton. The Scotsman was at Goodison Park from 2002 until 2013, and during his time there he was regarded as one of the top managers in the Premier League. […]

Where do West Ham go from here?

Where do West Ham go from here?

By Tommy Langton West Ham’s defeat at the weekend means they have taken just two points from their last six games and they are now second from bottom in the table. But the nature of that defeat, a 2-1 reverse against table topping Man City, should give fans plenty of encouragement as we head into […]

West Ham U23’s under the microscope.

Last week myself and Mike (you know the bonkers bloke from Mike on Monday) paid a visit to Wycombe  Wanderers in order to run the rule over our under 23 team. For those who don’t know the ‘Checkatrade trophy’ is the current incarnation of the tournament formerly known as the Johnstone Paint Trophy or occasionally called […]

West Ham optimism has gone

I am West Ham optimist usually but I have yet to see a team under David Moyes that is truly up for a relegation fight and will play for the manager and the badge. Sure there are some individuals who bleed Claret and Blue and will put in blood, sweat and tears into their performances, we […]

Carroll Service Needs Shake-Up

Well that and lot’s of other tactical insights but I couldn’t resist the festive headline.

You poor long suffering Hammers fans have had enough misery during the last […]

Player abuse – It doesn’t help!

West Ham fans waited to ambush Andy Carroll as he came out of Vicarage Road ground on Sunday to give him verbal abuse after the two-nil defeat. It came after away fans booed players during the game and sung ‘You’re not fit to wear the shirt’ during the game. Many West Ham players are constantly trolled […]

No Silva Lining for Hapless Hammers

Marco Silva convincingly won the tactical battle of the managers touted for the West Ham hot-seat in today’s encounter at Vicarage Road. New Hammers boss David Moyes had opted for a very familiar system which  centered around the battering ram approach with Andy Carroll as the target man. Well I use the term ‘Target Man’ […]

Advice to the West Ham board

Poor results on the pitch for West Ham have led to an inevitable return of anti- board feelings and London Stadium discontent. Much good work was done by the club last season to fix new stadium teething issues and atmosphere but a toxic atmosphere and a winter of discontent is once again returning. The same can […]

Official: West Ham are better than Real Madrid

Spurs beat Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League at Wembley last night in a team that included Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen. Just six days earlier West Ham turned over Spurs 3-2 at Wembley in the Carabao Cup in a team that also included Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen. Logic follows that means that West Ham are […]
