Ginger Pele’s on/off move is OFF

James Collins’ move to Ipswich Town amid rumours that the Hammers defensive hero could be on the move back to his former club Aston Villa. The Ginger Pele was offered a contract with The Tractor Boys and it was thought nailed on that this would be the move for which he would go. But Town […]

Hammers hero names man the team must be built around

Phil Parkes may just know what’s required at the back of a team and he believes we started to sort it against Everton. Yes, there’s a growing relationship between centre backs Balbuena and Diop which he likes but that wasn’t the main aspect of the performance as far as he was concerned. He reserves that […]

Boss reveals the road to success over Chelsea

Manuel Pellegrini has told his squad they need the same level of performance at home as away if they are to take Chelsea’s notable scalp on Sunday. It’s almost a cliche but confidence he declares has to be the key – the knowledge that they are capable of playing at home as the team did […]

Irons ‘Marmite man’ starts to appeal again

    By Allen Cummings   The euphoria from last Sunday’s victory is still rich in our veinsand why not? We’ve waited long enough this season to feel as good as we did when that final whistle blew at Goodison. There were so many plusses to come out of a performance we had all hoped […]

Boss so pleased as squad starts BELIEVING

  Manuel Pellegrini saw something at Everton that may have been missing until now – BELIEF!

Wilshere’s stop/start career is again on stop after again as he finds himself back on a hospital bed as his miserable catalogue of injuries continue. Manuel Pellegrini, along with most fans, will clearly […]

Report: Hammers linked to Chelsea ace

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is being linked with a move to the Irons in the January transfer window. The former Juventus and Real Madrid front man has hardly set himself or the Blues alight since his £58 million deal last summer and was linked with a move back to  AC Milan. That failed to materialise […]

Pellegrini’s Arnautovic injury message

Manuel Pellegrini stoked up the guessing game over Marko Arnautovic’s involvement in the clash against Chelsea on Sunday during today’s pre-match pressre. The manager was in no mood to give a view either way although ‘leaks’ have been emerging suggesting that the striker is more likely to be involved than not. However, Pellegrini appeared to […]

Pellegrini fires off a ‘Yarmo’ warning

Manuel Pellegrini has singled out three players for an honourable mention ahead of the Sunday clash against Chelsea. As the league leaders prepare to arrive at a London Stadium where their recent record is not great the manager reminded us: “It’s impossible to make a better start than Chelsea.” However, confidence is growing in the […]

Parkes on Fabianski

Lukasz Fabianski has probably made a bigger consistent impression on Hammers fans this season than any other new signing. Even at Everton he was called upon to make some fine stops in what eventually became a comprehensive victory but without him life could have been a lot more difficult. His recent form has prompted questions […]
