No Pressure Then

Leeds did Hammers a favour yesterday by beating 'Tottingham' 3-1, unfortunately neither Manchester City nor Southampton could oblige in the other results which saw Chelsea move further away and Liverpool move ominously closer. Realistically if David Moyes's boys are going to have any hope of making one of the Champions League slots, they have to (a) win all of the four remaining games, and (b) hope that Leicester continue to self destruct just as they did at the end of last season.

Chelsea Intending To 'Do A Lingard' With West Ham

Loan, loan, loan could be the order of the day during the summer transfer window, as Hammers boss David Moyes attempts to do a 'loaves and fishes' with what will, at least compared to other clubs, be a meagre transfer budget. The club's need for a striker has become somewhat of a broken record, with Moyes apparently looking at over 25 players.

Meanwhile Down At The Other End

Having spent far too many seasons looking at L'arse end of the Barclays Premier League table, Hammers fans find themselves in the not unenviable position of looking at the top, not bottom, for the first time since the 'Payet' season at the Boleyn during it's final year.

Why Rock The Irons Boat?

Hammers fans who followed the 'massive' injury boost links will be slightly underwhelmed when they read that one part of the 'massive injury boost' is that Mark Noble will be available for selection, again. We know criticising 'captain Mark' is akin to stamping on a puppy, but the stats for when he has appeared are damning.

Mikey's Boots Hard To Fill

Irrespective of where the club eventually finishes in the Barclays Premier League, one of the first orders of business in the closed season is for David Moyes to acquire a 'top notch' striker. The problem is strikers are like gold dust and their price reflects that, having already been 'linked' with Tammy Abraham, Ivan Toney, Abdallah Sima, Adam Hlozek, Adam Armstrong, Youssef En-Nesyri and Odsonne Edouard, the choice seems endless, but is it?

What Is It With Moyes And Benny?

David Moyes is one of the most experienced managers around, anywhere, so his actions are questioned by few and are usually justified by their end result, therefore it would be churlish to suggest that he has 'lost the plot' when it comes to his interaction with Said Benrahma.

Moyes 'Poker Face' Injuries

Ahead of what has become an increasingly important fixture against Burnley at Turf Moor this evening, Hammers coach David Moyes has been exercising his injuries poker face. He has already miss led certain sections of the media with his ambiguous comments as to the fitness of Mikey Antonio, Aaron Cresswell, Authur Masuaku and finally Declan Rice!

Villains Can Be Irons' Heroes!

At the end of last season Aston Villa managed to survive relegation by the skin of their teeth, their cause helped in no small measure by West Ham beating all the Villain's fellow relegation strugglers.

Irons Move To 'Firm UP' Moyes

David Moyes's managerial contract was always up for 'review' at the end of the season, and nothing has changed in that respect. It is common knowledge that was a clause added to his contract on his return to the London Stadium which was 'place dependent', essentially if the club finished eighth or above he would have to be offered a one year extension to his tenure.
