Maiga pay-off deal on cards

West Ham will make another move to pay up Modibo Maiga should his loan club Metz decide they don’t want him to stay at the end of the season. Like Alou Diarra before him – who accepted a pay off deal – there is obviously no way back to the club for the centre forward […]

DG: “Albion game ideal timing for Carroll”

David Gold believes two games in four days is “perfect” for Andy Carroll as he continues his return to full match fitness at West Brom on Tuesday evening. He said: “The lads will only be in involved in light training and I think another 90 minutes will suit him down to the ground at this […]

Valencia on way back

Injured Enner Valencia is set to return to the squad for Sunday’s match against Swansea. And with Alex Song also likely to join the lads for the clash against the Welsh outfit, that will leave just Diafra Sakho on the injured list – albeit for another month. Sources inside the Boleyn have revealed to ClaretandHugh […]


SHUT UP MIRALLES – Let the Tomkins thing go

Everton’s Kevin Miralles has chosen to gob off about James Tomkins ahead of his team’s clash with Spurs this afternoon ! A week on it seems, he can’t let it go and takes the moral high ground by claiming that our central defender set a terrible example for kids. One answer to that: “Do you […]

Jenks ready for Baggies

Carl Jenkinson is heading for West Brom relieved and happy the Irons are back on track. The impressive defender had a decent game against Newcastle and told West Ham TV: “It’s all about recovering properly now.

And the much needed victory was particularly welcomed by David Sullivan after – like us all – suffering through the injury crisis. We now face West Brom on Tuesday evening and Swansea […]

Gold brings injury cheer

David Gold brought some much needed injury cheer as the Hammers got back to winning ways against Newcastle. Although Diafra Sakho looks set for a long lay-off after the scandal of his mis-treatment at the hands of a Senegal physio, thing look better on the Alex Song front. The Hammers are unlikely to have any […]

How the Irons rated today

Adrian: Not really called on and  a comfortable game for the keeper who when he did have to get active was on top of the job 5 Jenkinson: No complaints. The lad is becoming a growing presence and defended well whilst getting forward at every opportunity 6  Collins: Rock solid and a defender playing to the […]

Irons “quote/unquote” Noble and Sam

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: “We have to say it was a fantastic finish from Aaron Cresswell. It was fortuitous he got in that position. He’s a full-back and carried on his run into the box. It was always going to be a 1-0. “We get back on the winning trail going into December. Newcastle are […]
