Hundreds of tickets remain for unsold for Chelsea

This weekend I am off to Prague for a fellow West Ham season ticket holder’s stag week so will miss the West Ham v Chelsea derby, after the recent news that up to 12,500 season ticket holders are missing from each West Ham game played at the London Stadium I decided to re-list my West […]

Where are the missing 12,500 season ticket holders?

The BBC freedom of information request on Premier League attendance figures confirms what many of us already knew. Although West Ham sell out each game with an average official attendance of 55,309 over 12,500 are missing each game despite having bought a ticket to attend. The BBC figures reveal: West Ham: Newham council says the average […]

What the playground squabble really means

The current standoff between London Stadium owners and West Ham could be described as a playground squabble with each party trying to get in the last convinced their position is right. Both sides seem to suggest the other one is misleading the public but who is right? First let me cover what they do agree […]

What an LLDC mess as they get it all so wrong again

LLDC CEO Lyn Garner got it so wrong in her first performance in front the London Assembly as she tries to blame West Ham for the Stadium woes! She listed four main issues why the London Stadium is losing money 1. Cost of the move of the seats (nothing to do with West Ham) 2.  Inefficient […]

No manager can survive six straight defeats in a row

There is an unwritten rule in the Premier League that no manager can suffer six straight defeats in a row and survive. With four straight defeats in the Premier League against Liverpool, Bournemouth, Arsenal and Wolves Pellegrini now faces Everton and Chelsea as he attempts to get a single point on the table. The club […]

Possible lineup for Bournemouth

Manuel Pellegrini is likely to make a few tweaks to the side that lose 4-0 at Anfield last week. Lukasz Fabianski was West Ham’s best player last Sunday and despite letting in four goals he did nothing wrong and is likely to keep his place. Ryan Fredericks, Angelo Ogbonna and Fabian Balbuena are also likely […]

Pitch surround colour doesn’t matter but the principle does

The latest disagreement between West Ham and stadium owners E20 has been aired in yesterday’s papers and with the Times, London Standard, Sun, BBC, Sky Sports and the Daily Star each giving it column inches and coverage. Personally, I am not bothered whether the pitch surround is Blue, Claret, Green or Yellow with pink spots on […]

Make Billy Bonds the greatest ever Hammer

West Ham have been counting down their fifty greatest Hammers on the official website and social media channels over the past two months. It is not clear who voted for and how they came up with the positions of 11-50 but they are now giving West Ham supporters a chance to vote on the top […]

Predicted lineup for Liverpool away

I think Manuel Pellegrini will be cautious in setting up his team for the Liverpool opener on Sunday. We have only won at Anfield twice in 55 years and they were unbeaten at home last season only conceding ten goals. Yarmolenko is probably a doubt after suffering a hip problem and although he trained this […]

The transfer rumour that never was

By Sean Whetstone Back in July West Ham ITK @EXWhuEmployee contacted us with an idea for a social experiment. He wanted to prove that many newspapers would print any transfer rumour without checking it out first. He asked us to choose a random player that might sound credible. At the time we knew West Ham […]
