Big doubts as Hammers head Down Under


West Ham -Down under

For all those CandH readers with long pockets, tickets are now on sale for the two games in Australia

The Irons land in Perth, Western Australia, this week. There, they will play A-League outfit Perth Glory on Saturday 15 July, before a London derby Down Under against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday July 18. Both games will kick-off at 6pm local time (11am BST) at the city’s 60,000-capacity Optus Stadium.

The tickets are a more than reasonable AUD 45 which equates to just over 20 quid.

Sounds tempting, but I forgot about the air-fare !

Without wishing to sound like a tree hugger, it does make you question the validity of these very short trips to the far end of the globe.

Yes, I know it is important to spread the Hammers “brand” and all that, but what with the global warming crisis and all that goes with it, it does not sit well with me.

Anyway, I am sure they will be good games and hopefully see some more Academy lads get a run out.

I think the original plan was to give our new signings their debuts.

But wait !

We have not signed anyone yet !

    Can’t we start CHARITY FUNDRAISING to buy players? We seem to be going backwards, no wonder Arsenal don’t seem in a hurry to pay for Rice! LOL!

    Gives a chance for the Aussie Hammer to watch WH live- something you’ve had all season.

    I am suspecting there is already a disconnect between Moyes and our new DOF. Moyes is stubborn he will not be told what to do..l That’s the problem. He wants safe players like mctominnay and ward prowse. These players are good pros but they are not going to improve us. We are struggling to attract players because of our manager. Scammaca has huge ability but cant stand Moye’s tactics. It is time for the board to wake up and sack Moyes, he is a poor manager and even a worse leader, before we waste our budget on average players.

  • Austrick says:

    Back in the day WH used to come to Austria pre-season- albeit with a 3 hour drive for me. If I go to the Leverkusen match it’s a 7 hour drive and have to sit in the neutral/ home section. Can’t believe it’s a Moyes decision as last season we played in Bonnie Scotland.
