Player Sales Loans And Bargains Needed To Fund Stage 2 Of Pelle's Plan

Be careful what you wish for....Having stumped up a not inconsiderable £90 Million or so to fund stage one of Manuel Pellegrini's three year plan to take West Ham to that legendary next level, the Hammers hierarchy find themselves in an unusual but not unpleasant situation depending on your take of the status quo.

Arnie's Head Turned So Far He's Looking Up His Own Backside!

The dust has now settled on last Saturday's extraordinary 4-3 victory over relegation strugglers Huddersfield Town at the London Stadium, however the fall out has not! It is difficult to explain how a 'top' team can perform so badly for so long against a team destined for the lower divisions and then suddenly play like Barcelona for the remaining 15 minutes unless it is because there is a 'bad apple' in the squad.

Arnie To Start-Pellegrini To Finish-He's Not Stupid!

Having proved his point by dropping his top striker for several matches, Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is clever enough to avoid 'cutting his nose off to spite his face' by intimating that Marko Arnautovic will lead the line from the start in the match against Huddersfield town at the London (hopefully soon to be renamed Tesla) Stadium this Saturday.

Andy Caps Off Hammers Career With Final Injury Flourish

Just after the medical staff at West Ham had finished patting themselves on the back for having finally cracked the 'Carroll Injury Code', they heard that old familiar V8 rumble of Andy's Overfinch Range Rover as it attempted to pull in to his usual parking space. There was a bit of a kerfuffle when Carroll realised that the space that he had occupied for so long had been taken by 'that Wilshere geezer's imported US 1960's Ford Galaxy ambulance.

Pelle's Bonzo Boot Camp Awaited Hammers Players After Dismal Defeat

Manuel Pellegrini, or this 'Charming Man' as he was known to Manchester City fans while managing at the Etihad, was far from charming when he met up with his players for Monday's post match analysis of Saturday's dreadful performance against relegation strugglers Cardiff City.

Apparently there was some 'styrofoam damage' done to drinking receptacles, the players not being allowed to use real china for fear of freak injury, followed by a 'Bonzo' style work out the likes of which Rush Green has never seen before, it made Moyes and Psycho look like Yoga teachers.

Good For Founders Not So Good The Rest As Season Tickets Go Up In Price

Having essentially frozen season ticket prices since the move to the London Stadium from the Boleyn Ground, West Ham United have announced various price increases for next season's tickets. Prices for cheapest founder tickets went up last year by default, in order to get the £298 offer it was neccassary to renew for two years, otherwise the price was £320, exactly what it will be for next season, all good there then.

L.A.M.E. Once Again Hammers Fail To Turn Up Away

As anachronisms are all the rage in media circles and platforms we thought we would kick off with L.A.M.E as the anachronism for West Ham United's woeful, yet predictable, defeat away to bottom three club Cardiff City. As many fans feared Hammers turned up like 'billy big bollocks' and were shown the door, they were out thought and definitely out fought by the home team who were buoyed by their opponents lackadaisical approach from the get go.

Pellegrini 'Generally' Happy Ahead Of Cardiff Game

In a similar fashion to waiting for London buses, Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini finds himself with what will seem like three new signings when his side take on beleagured Neil Warnock's Cardiff City side this afternoon. The return to full fitness of Manuel Lanzini has already been well documented, Mikail Antonio and Aaron Cresswell both appear to be back to their previous heights and the "General' Fabian Balbuena is back after four months.
