Bilic admits job pressure is unpleasant

Manager Slaven Bilic is totally fed up with talking about the future of his job “on a weekly basis.”

Bilic admits Irons deserved the boos

Slaven Bilic was entirely unfazed as the Hammers were booed off at half time admitting they deserved it.

Hart: “We stick together and fight hard

Joe Hart kept himself on a tight  rein but obviously felt things could have been a lot better on the terraces during this afternoon’s match.

How we rated the Irons against Swansea

Niall McDonald hands out the marks
Hart: Saved the only shot Swansea got on target. Showed us all what Pep was talking about with his distribution 4
Zabaleta: I wonder what he makes of all this 5
Reid: Lots of sideways and backwards passing, although not the only guilty party 5
Fonte: Comfortable in the face of not much attacking threat it must be said 5
Cresswell: Plenty of crosses, none quite hitting the mark 5
Noble: Come in number 16, your time is up 3
Kouyate: Looked happier sitting in once Lanzini came on 5
Ayew: No impact on the left or the right. One crumb of comfort for Swansea fans was remembering they sold him to us for £20m 3
Antonio: Looked nowhere near fit, played well within himself 5
Carroll: Like him or not, in first half AC was one of the few who seemed capable of seeing a pass and playing one 5
Hernandez: Waited 42 mins for the first ball played anywhere near the 6-yard box. For all the boos when subbed, he’d done virtually nothing 4
Subs Lanzini: Sharp of thought and movement – stood out a mile 6
Sakho: Big Sam would have been purring to see AC and Sak back together. Kept his manager in a job for now, perhaps 6
Masuaku: Second quality cross in a week and an even more vital goal came from it 6


Bad boy Sak rescues Hammers ….and Bilic

Hammers 1 Swansea 0

HT: Hammers 0 Swansea 0

The Hammers were second best again this season with Swansea dominating possession -though it was of little use to them – throughout the first 45 minutes.

Link with Green street should not be forgotten says MP

A year on from West Ham’s first matches at the London Stadium -and as families move into new flats in the club’s demolished Boleyn Ground – the Boleyn community came together today to ensure its football history is not forgotten. Over 50 cyclists, including the local MP and a unicyclist, made the 3-mile journey from the Bobby Moore statue outside the Boleyn pub to the Swansea match in the Olympic Park.

Bilic may be forced into late change

We are receiving late and unconfirmed reports that Marko Arnuatovic may be missing from this afternoon’s line up against Swansea City

Bobby Moore Statue unlikely to move

The Worldcup champions statue featuring West Ham trio Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters is unlikely to move from its present location on Barking road says Newham councillor Veronica Oakeshott.

Brave words Slav …all we need now is to deliver!

Slaven Bilic has this morning delivered a big boast in warning the Premier League to be frightened of our awesome array of front men.
