If you can’t beat them join them


West-HamWest Ham have taken the slightly unusual step of creating their own ITK (In the Know) called the ‘Boleyn Insider’

The new feature on the club’s official website says the Boleyn Insider blog promises to bring you the latest gossip from around the Club and the major transfer speculation surrounding the first-team.
