ExWHUemployee’s exclusive column: ‘Taking Mad Dog on tour Down Under was the best decision we’ve ever made!’
We take an in-depth at this summer’s Declan Rice transfer saga and also ask what impact his departure will have on the pitch
Why the best is still to come from our Brazilian magnifico
Why Downes shouldn’t been seen as Rice’s replacement and given the chance to prove himself in the Premier League
We examine our pre-season results and performances for any indication of how we’ll start this season
We look ahead to our Europa League campaign and the journey to Dublin
We take a closer look at last season’s promoted teams and ask who will go back down?
And we hear from Robert Banks on his decades-long irrational hatred of Luton Town
We explore West Ham’s shirt prices and compare them to other Premier League clubs
And we look ahead to a new season for the West Ham Women under new coach Rehanne Skinner
Claret & Hugh has the last word: Our transfer inactivity is a possible disaster in waiting!
