Actions speak louder than words

Karren Brady’s article in the Sun newspaper on Saturday has received a mixed reception from West Ham supporters. Some see it is the start of an apology to heal the rift between fans and the board while others see it a cynical ploy to fill her newspaper column. A number of football supporters up and […]

West Ham warm weather training Miami trip explained

They say a picture paints a thousand words so it is unfortunate to see images of West Ham players sunning themselves on Miami beach in the tabloid laughing and rubbing sun cream into each other as they sun themselves. The timing is awful from a PR perspective after an awful week in the media in […]

West Ham trouble blown out of proportion

By Claret and Hugh Associate Editor Sean Whetstone I felt compelled to write my version of events from yesterday as I stand not far away from the director’s box in the lower West Stand.

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 […]

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.

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.
