West Ham 1 Wolves 3

I am generally an absolute optimist when it comes to supporting the Hammers.  I try to see the positives in defeat, the near misses in a draw and enjoy the jubilation of a victory.  But that optimisn well and truly faded and died with our bubbles tonight and it saddens me to say that it … Read more

West Ham turn to face the real tests

Well, there was not much surprise about the result yesterday, though it was tinged with some frustration as there were certainly times in the game yesterday when we could have at least have got a point from the game.  Diamanti's missed penalty and Cole's shaving of the post were both missed opportunities and in the … Read more

Relegation Battle Update

I've not really contemplated us going down this season, I know all about the old phrase about being too good for the drop is a load of cobblers, but I can't see Cole, Parker, Green, Behrami, Diamanti and all heading for the drop.  This theory has been cheered with some news this morning.

As for the Hammers players, a mixed … Read more

Match Fixer by Neil Humphreys

I got an email from a fellow Hammer today who wanted to make me aware of his new fictional book about the Hammers, Match Fixer.  I've not had a chance to read it yet but it sounds like great fun, I'll let the author, Neil Humphreys, introduce himself and the book to you all…. Neil … Read more

Mido signs four month contract

Slightly under-whelmed by this one, but I didn't realise he was only 26, I thought he was well into his thirties, seems to have been around for ages.  I guess he is okay back up for the first choice of Mccarthy and Cole.  Ilan deal still in negotiation, these things can happen after the deadline … Read more

Benni Mccarthy signing confirmed

Which is a relief as I was starting to get nervous, but all confirmed on the official site and the lad has been on Sky Sports News and he sounded genuinely pleased to be joining us.  Welcome Benni, we look forward to seeing you banging some goals in the back of the net soon. Ilan … Read more
