• Anyone notice that one Jonathan Calleri scored a hat-trick for Espanyol versus Wolves last night? That's the same Jonathan Calleri who looked so poor for West Ham in the first season at the London Stadium and scored just one deflected goal. Why is it players always prosper after leaving West […]
  • The West Ham injury curse strikes again. Bad news is that Tomas Soucek will be out for three weeks with a groin/abductor injury. David Moyes says he was struggling even to get out for the second half at Anfield, which makes you wonder why he wasn't taken off at half-time. […]
  • Liverpool 3 West Ham 2We're at the World's End for this one, with Lisa, daughter Lola and Michael The Gooner who is an honorary Iron for the night. Lola has arrived with a Tardis Box set of Christopher Eccleston Doctor Who dvds, which sits on our table as a good […]
  • Thanks to my pal Matt for tweeting that West Ham's women's side just beat Liverpool 4-2 beneath Ansel Adams skies (is Ansel Tony Adams' brother?) at Rush Green. Something similar will do tonight… 
  • West Ham have little to lose at Liverpool on Monday. No one expects the Hammers to get anything so who not ask Liverpool a few questions? Liverpool have to drop points sometime. Moyes has to be less conservative than at Man City. There's no point in signing Bowen for £22m […]
  • Manchester City 2 West Ham 0Watched this one round at my mate Robert's house, where at least the TV definition was good, if not the team. With five at the back it was clear Moyes had come hoping for a draw or to at least keep down WHU's goal difference.Early […]
  • There was a thoughtful piece on West Ham in the Sunday Times last week by chief football writer Jonathan Northcroft. He recalls once being told by Martin Jol that, "Nothing in football is ever as it seems" and despite the club's position he finds an air of optimism at West […]
  • Thanks, if that's the right word, to my pal Nigel for pointing out that it was 30 years ago today that West Ham lost 6-0 away to Oldham in the first leg of a League Cup semi-final. Even worse I was there. The memories are still vivid, that plastic pitch […]
  • So much for the winter break. The Man City versus West Ham match is now back on for next Wednesday. Sterling is out, but we now have to play City and Liverpool away in succession. Still, I predict Bowen will tear City apart and then we'll start the inevitable Liverpool […]
  • Well, a great result at the Etihad. Thanks to the weather this might do West Ham some good psychologically. Had WHU lost to both City and Liverpool heads might have dropped even further. But now no-one expects us to get anything at Anfield so who knows what might happen, and […]
