West Ham United Vs Manchester City Barclays Asia Trophy

Hammers take on Manuel Pellegrini's nemesis Manchester City this lunch time in their first fixture of the Premier League Asian Trophy that is being payed at the strangely named Nanjing Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium (capacity 14,000). City are favourites to be outright winners of the competition that also features Newcastle and Wolves, however the Citizens will feel the footballing gods are against them due to their flight from the UK being delayed TWICE!

Sturridge As Back Up Striker - Please No!

Having just got 'the most injury prone forward' in Barclays Premier League history off their books there are rumours that West Ham United want to swap one ex-Liverpool crock for another! Wasn't the 'Andy Carroll Experience' psychedelic enough for the board? Carroll cost the club just shy of £60 Million in wages and fees give or take the odd couple of million, ironically those who sanctioned his purchase had previously highlighted the 'Kieran Dyer' 'shameful experience'!

One Hall Of A Deal! A Proper Striker

At the beginning of last season, the Hammers hierarchy knew they had pushed the boat out, laying out close to £100 Million in players acquisitions, but more importantly they engaged a 'proper' title winning manager in the form of Manuel Pellegrini. Despite a woeful start and a dreadful injury list, Pellegrini's team eventually found their feet by playing open exciting football, dare we say 'the West Ham way'.

West Ham United Preparing Well For The Premier League 2019-20 Season

The weeks leading up to the start of a new Premier League season are always full of anxiety and anticipation. The players, back from their summer vacations, are busy with practices while keeping a watchful eye on the transfers. The clubs are putting in all the efforts to form a team that will take them to the top. The fans, on the other hand, can’t wait to watch their favourite team perform.

Haller And Yedder (again) Next Up On Hammers Striker Wishlist

Despite appearing to have put all their eggs in one basket in their failed pursuit of Celta Vigo's Maxi Gomez, it is inconceivable that Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Husillos do not have a plan (b), a plan (c) or even a plan (z) ! The most recent, and most intriguing name being linked with the Hammers recruitment team is Eintracht Frankfurt's Sebastian Haller, the 25 year old French striker just enjoyed a prolific season in the Bundesliga, scoring on average a goal every other game.

Fair Play To Gomez!

Having been on the receiving end of being financially out muscled on numerous occasions when it comes to player purchasing, the boot is on the other foot for West Ham United. Despite offering the full €50 Million of Maxi Gomez's release clause, albeit in instalments, and offering twice the wages, the 22 year old Uruguayan striker has chosen to remain in Spain and join Valencia in what is a cut price deal.

Finances Were Not In Place In January For Gomez Deal

Hindsight being the wonderful thing that it is has shown that West Ham would have fared far better in their sale of Marko Arnautovic had it been completed in January as opposed to now, however there are several points that need to be looked at, primarily the financing of the deal to sell Arnautovic and the finances that were available at the time to push through the purchase of main target Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo.

Toxic Arnie Departs-DeJa Vu For Fans

West Ham United have officially confirmed want away striker Marko Arnautovic has left the club, the £22.5 Million received from Shanghai SIPG will be re-invested towards the purchase of Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo.

Husillos May Have Just Played Blinder-Hernandez To Valencia?

With so much to-ing and fro-ing with regards to the Maxi Gomez transfer we asked our old Org colleague David Dalby to check things out, David is a retired journalist who now lives in Spain and is not only fluent in Spanish but is really well connected with Barcelona and Malaga football clubs, indeed he is close friends with the owners of Malaga.
