So suddenly a brilliant Irons win is a Man U story!

Monday morning should be a lot easier for most Hammers fans after this weekend although we still have a few who aren’t 100 per cent happy. Twas ever thus! Despite a convincing attacking away win at Goodison  a fabulous defensive performance and clean sheet against Chelsea, eight in the cup and three more against Man […]

Bookies got Pelle’s odds SO WRONG

They love to tell you the bookies are never wrong and that money talks! WRONG! Do you recall the odds against Manuel Pellegrini being the first manager to leave the Premier League a couple of weeks back. He was 3/1. It was never a bet and made no sense whatsoever as is now being demonstrated […]

Scholes: “United may have won with Hammers big three”

Former Manchester United star Paul Scholes has paid the Irons an almighty compliment in the post mortem following his team’s defeat at the London Stadium yesterday. The former Red reckons that the United big three were vastly inferior to ours and that had Arnie, Anderson and Yarmolenko been on their side they may well have […]

Gonzo gets down for the kids view

Given that we appear to have a new generation of Irons coming through on the pitch, it’s quite fitting that Hammers Chat’s Gonzo should get it on with the new generation of supporters. Always looking for a different angle, our main man took his camera and mic into a gathering of youngsters who had some […]

Here’s the cherry on the Hammers cake

The win over Manchester United was notable for many reasons but the cherry on the cake may have come in the last couple of minutes. A very edgy young man stood on the sidelines desperate to get onto the pitch but the ball simply wouldn’t go out of play. Eventually Grady Diangana made it as […]

Rewind: Here’s those goals again

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkNekRGqUZU Sorry about the foreign commentary – it was the only one we could find. However, the goals don’t really need words so here’s another chance to take a look at how they beat Mourinho’s Manchester mob yesterday. MOTD appeared to show that the first was a tad offside but who cares we would have […]

Anderson: “We can grow a lot as a team and go far”

Felipe Anderson believes the Irons are well and truly on their way after three games unbeaten and predicts “we can go far.” He grabbed his first goal in claret and blue and afterwards spoke about that and the team in general.He is clearly a happy man with much hop for where we go from here. […]
