Was Moyes Brought In Just To Sell Rice?

"No player is bigger than the club" is a hackneyed expression used to cover the sale of a club's most valuable asset, to either balance the books or to reinvest in new players. So the regularity of comments attributed to Manuel Pellegrini's replacement, David Moyes, with regards to the possible sale of Declan Rice has been of some concern to West Ham United fans.

Yarmo Be There

Andriy Yarmolenko is one of West Ham United's highest paid players, but with the exception of some brief glimpses has never really shone for the club, untimely injuries have limited the player to only 24 appearances for the Irons since his £17.5 Million transfer from Borussia Dortmund two years ago.

Did Irons Roll Over For Premier League?

West Ham United's decision to agree to the rescheduling of the game against Manchester City that had to be postponed by storm Ciarra during the so called winter break has had many fans outraged by the club's apparent acquiescence to the 'powers that be' by allowing the game to be played on the Wednesday the 19th of February, a clear 72 Hours before either team should have been officially playing according to the original remit from the FA, the Premier League and F.I.F.A.

Citeh Match Postponed By Ciara!

In what is not a surprising development, West Ham United's away fixture against last year's Barclays Premier League Champions Manchester City has been postponed due to storm Ciara. A Manchester City spokesperson said: "Due to extreme and escalating weather conditions and in the interests of supporter and staff safety, today's match has been postponed. Further information regarding the rescheduling of today's match will be published in due course."

Hibernation Haller To Step Out?

West Ham fans around the Globe hope, ney pray that new boys Bowen and Soucek will provide the extra bounce to inspire the beleagured Irons to safety. One of the most talked about issues, apart from the glaring defensive problems, is the form of the misfiring Sebastian Haller, he is undoubtedly an excellent finisher, but requires 5 star service in order to get his job done. It is as if Haller is so used to dining at the Ritz that he has forgotten how to push himself in to the front of the queue at Witherspoon's!

*Moyes Needs To Use Bowen Before The Curse Sets In!

When Jarred Bowen signed for West Ham United with just 10 minutes to spare before the closing of the January transfer window, he didn't realise that his transfer was the biggest deal of the day and that it would get 'wall to wall' publicity. The player's subsequent interviews, and his inter action on the training ground, reveal an astonishing level of optimism and energy while at the same time a mature degree of humility.

Chicken 'Kiev' Flies In!

In the interest of 'proper' journalism, we should state chickens can't actually fly, this information being particularly pertinent to those educated in recent years who learn all their information and life skills from the Internet! Former club captain Kevin Nolan has returned after five years as an assistant first team coach, the 37 year old Geordie scored 31 goals in 157 appearances for the Irons between 2011 and 2015 before being released by mutual agreement. He then worked as a player manager at both Leyton Orient and Notts County.

Ruthless Moyes Sends Kids Packing

Since his arrival at the London Stadium for the second time, David Moyes has had a chance to run the rule over the players available to him, from the first team to the youth set ups, and one glaringly obvious stance is that many do not measure up to his standards.

Several youth players have been sent out on loan, earmarked for the future, but several 'high profile' youngsters have been 'let go' or moved on for little or no money in order to create space for new arrivals.

It's Not Just Haller!

When he was at Eintrecht Frankfurt, West Ham United's record signing, Sebastian Haller, played alongside Luka Jovic, between the two of them they bagged 53 goals in their last season together. Haller made his big move to the Barclays Premier League whereas Jovic elected to join Real Madrid as one of their 'Galacticos'.

Together they were unstoppable, working closely in tandem, however since they went their separate ways neither of them have been able to re-create the sort of form that earned them their big money moves.
