West Ham announced late yesterday that they have signed two new players, Torino striker David Di
Michele, and Congolese defender Herita Ilunga from French side Toulouse. Both players arrive at
Upton Park on season long loans, with a view to making the signings permanent. In addition to
these players word is that Stephen Appaiahwho is now a [.
Ok so the dust has settled and my anger has subsided (a bit anyhow) and I have come to the
conclusion, that life as a football supporter could be worse... we could be Newcastle! Sure we have
no left-back on our squad until at least January, and half the players we have are unfit and
Originally I was going to comment on Alan Curbishley's comment in mid-August when he said in the
press to "judge me after the transfer window closes"... I think though that our poor
manager no longer has any control over who comes and goes from Upton Park, and personally I think
all of us Hammers supporters [.
23.33 hrs McCartney's sale is apparently worth between £4.5-8 million. If it is £4.5 I
think we got robbed, if it is £8 million then OK I will admit that is good footballing
business! 23.28 hrs BREAKING NEWS Robinho won't be coming to West Ham... apparently he is signing
for Man City... 23.24 hrs [.
So tomorrow marks the return of Paul Ince, the most hated man in modern West Ham history - for the
kids out there who can't remember us Hammers dislike Mr Ince because once upon a time, not so long
ago, he played for us. That is until one day Man U came along and stole [...]
I spent last night down at the Boleyn ground, singing! Oh and watching the Hammers put in a pitiful
display of footballing skill. Mostly though I was singing. I was singing a new little ditty called
"You're going to get the sack in the morning." It was a catchy little tune, created on
the spot by [..
Tonight the mighty Hammers of West Ham will limp into a match against League Two opposition in the
form of Macclesfield. Hopefully Curbs and the boys who on paper should easily beat this team, will
avoid slipping on the potential banana skin that the Silkmen represent. Curbishley says he is going
to start a full strength [.
The sale of Anton Ferdinandto Sunderland was confirmed today by the club for an undisclosed fee
(rumours estimate his sale cost the Black Cats between £6-8 million). The club website reports
that Anton's move was "in the best interest of the club", something that I find hard to
believe unless they are speaking in purely [.
Following rumours that started circulating this morning in some rags around the country, West Ham's
Chief Executive Scott Duxbury issued the following statement: "West Ham United have absolutely
no intention of selling Craig Bellamy. "He is under contract and is committed to the club.
Craig remains a very important part of our plans for the future.
Anyone who cannot make it down to the Boleyn on Wednesday can follow the Hammers in their Carling
Cup match against Macclesfield on BBC London 94.9.
All signs seem to indicate that Anton Ferdinand is heading to the Northeast to play for Sunderland.
A move that I think is bad business by West Ham who seem anything but solid at the back, but the
board wants to thin the squad and I guess Ferdinand is part of that cull. Surprising news though
Like last week, West Ham started brightly, and looked pretty good for some points... until Mark
Noble got sent off for two stupid fouls, then the whole team might as well have joined Noble in the
showers for all the use they were. From the moment the Hammers were reduced to 10 men, Man City
Manchester City have problems both on and off the pitch. Off the pitch their future is uncertain;
their Thai owner Thaksin Shinawatra has offered to resign from the club's board and is on the
run from the authorities in Thailand. On the pitch, they have problems in attack with Valeri
Bojinov, Benjani and Darius Vassell [.
Sunderland manager Roy Keane has turned his attentions to West Ham striker Carlton Cole, 24, after
securing a loan deal for Marseille's Djibril Cisse. (The Sun) BBC SPORT | Football | Gossip |
Thursday's gossip column. Somebody actually wants to sign Carlton Cole??? WTF, and at a reported
£5 million transfer fee.
There is still lots of talk in the gossip columns about Anton Ferdinand, but so far that is all it
is - gossip. Then there is more talk about Pinto, a player who has been linked with West Ham on and
off all summer... West Ham will hold talks with Chilean striker Sebastian Pinto, with a [...]
