Hammers Break In To Elite Top 20 For The First Time

West Ham make the top 20 of Deloitte's Football Money League 2014/15 for the first time since 2005-06 with revenues of 160.9m euro (£122.4m), more than Turkey's top club, Galatasaray. Not since the 'phoney money' of the Icelandic biscuit barons have West Ham United had such revenue streams running through the club, of course the 'streams' from iceland were in fact volcanic based debt, whereas now, under the ownership of the two Davids, Sullivan and Gold, six years into their tenure, are healthy and well founded.

Oh No, Not Pato Please! It has To Be Emenike Doesn't It?

If the rumour mill is to be believed, which it should not! West Ham United are reported to be interested in signing Alexandre Pato, yet another injury prone striker, although the player is supposed to be signing for Chelsea imminently. You couldn't make it up could you? Well actually you can if you write fro the Daily Mail, apparently Hammers are lining up moves for Pato, that old chestnut Demba Ba as well as Emmanuel Emenike.

Silly Season Underway! First Balotelli, Now Sturridge

It is not just the Brentwood Gazette that seems to have had their water supply 'infected' with powerful hallucinogens, The Independent and of course those bastions of truth the Daily Mail have also got in on the act!

Who's A Naughty Boy Then?

Diafra Sakho, known as Daffy to his West Ham team mates, is not one to avoid the head lines is he? Having had various unpleasant charges dropped against him last year by the police, one would have thought that he would try to keep a low profile. Crashing his £200,000 Lamborghini in to a wall after having collided with another vehicle wasn't exactly what was required!

Byram And The Henry Factor

As the news broke of West Ham United's potential signing of the Thurrock born 22 year old right back Sam Byram from Leeds United, senior members of the Everton hierarchy will have been reaching for their hip flasks in order to numb the reality that they are facing since the departure of main scout Tony Henry to West Ham United. The Byram Leeds to Everton deal was all done and dusted, but local influence AND Tony Henry put an end to all that!

This Really Is A Great West Ham Team And Manager! 3-1 Away Win!

Mark Lawrenson, despite his recent 'moment of clarity' got it wrong again, maybe he should be renamed Mark Got It Wrong Son! Despite Liverpool's ex -finest's prediction, a Dimitri Payet inspired West Ham United survived a rocky first half which saw Andy Carroll trouping off in an all too familiar fashion, and the conceding of a goal that Adrian will just have to put down as one of life's errors.
