West Ham fans United at London Stadium

For probably the first time this season West Ham supporters were UNITED in one simple common goal.

Today at 10am is the latest episode of the London Stadium blame game as career politicians from the London Assembly look blame anyone except themselves for the security and policing issues that have surround the former Olympic Stadium since August. West Ham’s invitation must have got lost in the post as they are no club […]

Dimi Payet story doesn’t add up

Andrew Dillion in The Sun newspaper is running a supposed ‘exclusive’ claiming Dimi Payet is close to signing yet another pay deal!
