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 unavailable. [...

We’ve been had!

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 [.

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 [...]

…and we were singing

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 [..

West Ham must avoid slipping…

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 [.

Ferdinand set to leave, McCartney set to return

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 [...]

Hammers… hammered 3-0 by Man City!

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 looked [.
