Hammers Executive Ponders Name Change to West Ham Olympic

President Barack Obama’s favorite footie club, West Ham United, could undergo a radical identity change if the club’s new vice-chairman has her way. Karren Brady, who was appointed vice-chairman of the Hammers by the new joint chairmen, David Sullivan and David Gold, just this month, fancies the idea of changing the club’s […]

The Worst Premiership Signings Of The Noughties

For every Ronaldo, there’s a Shevchenko. Sometimes, great reputations come at a great cost yet fail to deliver. Shevchenko is a great player to start with. Feared throughout Europe, his performances for Dynamo Kiev and A.C. Milan saw him become one of the most lethal strikers in the world. Once […]

West Ham United v Liverpool, 1978: Classic Video

It’s hard to believe that a classic West Ham United team featuring legends such as Trevor Brooking, Alan Curbishley, Frank Lampard Sr., Billy Bonds and a young Alvin Martin were staring down the face of relegation on the last day of the 1977-1978 season. But they were, and they needed […]

Burnley’s Away Day Woe Continues

If he were an opera star, he would be il divo.  If he were an American sports star, he would be called a prima dona (yes, Americans don’t speak other languages well) and be compared to Terrell Owens or various NBA figures.  If he was a politician, he would rise […]

Two Wins In A Calendar Year Isn’t Mischief Making

Hull City Chairman Paul Duffen has ridden to the defence of his beleaguered, battered and bruised manager after another capitulation on Saturday saw Hull brushed aside 6-1 at Anfield. 7 games into the season and Hull City have just 4 points, with a solitary win against Bolton and a point […]

Defoe Continues To Shine For Club And Country

Jermain Defoe has had a fantastic start to the new season, with goals for England and Spurs; including his 50th for the club in the 2-1 win at West Ham. His hat trick and all round performance against Hull City was clearly his best performance in a Spurs shirt in […]

West Ham Await Summer Progress

When Gianfranco Zola got back on the team bus from Goodison Park yesterday he could be forgiven for thinking “Only one more week and we can get this club sorted out”. Gianfranco Zola is a legend of English football – particularly at West Ham’s city rivals Chelsea. A connection that may […]
