No this is not a 'click bate' headline although West Ham fans will think so, news has reached us at The Org regarding Tottenham Hotspur's attempt at extricating themselves from their uncompleted White Hart Lane Stadium dilemma by negotiating to play one game at West Ham United's London Stadium.

Three goals in four minutes either side of half time changed the course of West Ham's Premier League 2 opener against Tottenham at Stevenage tonight, everything was looking like Spurs would win comfortably at the Lamex when they took an early lead through Samuel Shashoua, they created more chances after that and looked likely to add more goals.

Reality Bites-Pellegrini "We Must Improve" Following Anfield Loss

An opening fixture at Anfield was hardly a barometer to judge early progress but Hammers have lost more top flight games against Liverpool than any other side and despite spending around £100m on new recruits this was always going to be a difficult match. Pellegrini used five of his new players Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Balbuena, Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere from the start, Wilshere was isolated in attack, failing to touch the ball in the Liverpool penalty area, and Anderson was withdrawn in the second half after running out of puff.

Lambs to the Slaughter Or Silence Of The Lambs?

The time for pontificating is over as the new season begins for 'new look' West Ham with a tricky opening fixture against Liverpool at what will be a 'pumped up' Anfield Stadium. The Pool are one of the few teams to have spent more money during the transfer window than the Hammers, they've pushed the boat out for a replacement keeper and centre back, the only fly in their ointment is the amount of players who have only recently returned to training due to the presence of so many of their players at The World Cup in Russia.

We've Had All The In's Now Who Are The Out's At West Ham?

With the closing of the transfer window for Premier League clubs to buy or trade with each other the only deals that can now be done are outgoings to either non-UK based clubs or loan deals to those in the EFL and below. Back in the dark days following relegation Hammers fans will remember what is was like to be hoping for good deals or 'exotic' loans from 'top' teams when the transfer window closed for Premier League teams, players viewed as suplus to requirements represented an ideal way for cash strapped lower league managers to strengthen their squads and give hope to their fans.

Sanchez Completes Pellegrini's Jigsaw

As the transfer window 'SLAMS SHUT', the much beloved term of the Red Tops, Hammers fans will be extremely happy with the overall transfer activity of the club during the window.

Low Cash For Lucas As Perez Moves To The LS In Cut Price Deal

West Ham United have practically stolen striker Lucas Perez from Arsenal for a bargain basement £4 Million rising to £5 Million with add ons. Things went very poorly for Perez following his £17 Million move from Deportivo de La Coruna to the Emirates, so bad were things for the player at Arsenal that he was farmed out for all of last season back at Deportivo on loan!
