Rice Criticism Unwarranted

Declan Rice appears to have been made the 'fall guy' for England's insipid performance against the Czech Republic, he has been picked on particularly by certain sections of the media, but he wasn't entirely alone when it comes to the overall team performance. Rice is a young player learning to get better, whereas there were other senior players who just didn't step up to the plate.

Perhaps Missing Top 3 Was A Blessing In Disguise

Having failed yet again to 'join the top table', many Hammers fans are finding it difficult to understand why their team constantly falls at the first hurdle. If West Ham had beaten Crystal Palace, the club would have been in the top three ahead of the International break, we at the Org reckon that if Manuel Pellegrini had managed to navigate the gap, fans might have become delusional with their expectations.

How Many More Ist Choice Keepers?

A week is a long time in football, and with over 3/4 of the season remaining we ask, how many more top class 1st choice goal keepers will receive long term injuries and whether it is a 'Karmic' event or pay back for bouts of schadenfreude among Barclays Premier League clubs supporters?

Hammers Top Brass Will Not Trade With London Rivals

West Ham United are experiencing a more than decent start to this Barclays Premier League season, this is in no small way connected to clever recruitment under taken by the club's secret weapon, Mario 'the Huse' Husillos. Under the Huse's guidance the club has managed to clear out most of the dead wood, and bring in young exciting talent in their place.

Top 6 A Hope Or Hopeless Now?

Liverpool are currently top of the Barclays Premier League, despite the fact they began the season by losing their goal keeper Alisson Becker, who had been attributed to being worth as much as 12 points in their previous campaign, to injury. West Ham United had begun to look like serious top six contenders for this season, before hopes seemed to be dashed by the long term injury sustained by goal keeper Lukasz Fabianski in the game against Bournemouth last weekend .

Not Such Good News On The Fab Front

West Ham United's last season's player of the year, Lukasz Fabianski, picked up a hip injury during the club's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday, he was forced to leave the field during the first half and was replaced by substitute keeper Roberto.
