The 'Dirty' Dozen* Remaining

Hammers 'stealth attack' for one of the coveted Champions League spots has had some unforeseen consequences, for example it is extremely unusual at this time of the season for any of the West Ham fan sites, or media outlets, to be discussing upcoming fixtures with anything other than the fear of relegation as the main topic of discussion, but here is the list of the Irons remaining fixtures, the 'dirty dozen*' despite there being thirteen games remaining.

Hammers Will Get A Taste Of Europe On Saturday

The understandable euphoria among fans that has accompanied Hammers rise up the Barclays Premier League table has many dreaming of the possibility of European football, and so they should. In this season of all strange seasons there is definitely a 'possibility' of reaching that much sought after next level.

Get In There Irons Challenge Champions League Cartel

Ghosts were laid to rest this lunchtime, unfortunately there might also have been an as yet unconfirmed, but unprecedented amount of calls to the London Ambulance service! West Ham United are GENUINELY in the top four of the Barclays Premier League, Hammers opponents in today's game, Tottenham are now in NINTH place, on 36 points, albeit with a game in hand.

Moyes Tottenham Pre-Match Presser In Full

To start off with David Moyes was asked about team news…

Michail Antonio has a good chance for Sunday because he has had a few days training. We’re always careful with Mick because we want to make sure he’s right, but he was close for the last game. He’s been doing more work on the training pitch and we’ll know more tomorrow.

Mourinho Provides Moyes Team Talk!

Ahead of Sunday lunch time's fixture against Tottenham at the London Stadium, the visitor's manager, Jose Mourinho, delivered his usual 'pearls of wisdom' for the Press, something he is really, really good at. However his latest snippet may have inadvertantly provided additional ammunition for just the sort of team talk David Moyes will be giving his players ahead of a game that could see Tottenham close up to within three points of West Ham, or see the Irons move a staggering NINE points ahead of their London rivals.

Here is a 'snippet' of the 'special one's' comments:

Why Stuart Pearce Is Conspicuous By Absence On Match Days?

West Ham assistant manager Stuart Pearce, or Psycho as fans used to call him while he was playing for Forest, England and latterly West Ham, has never been short of 'direct' communication, so his apparent absence on match days has come as some surprise to Hammers fans, has he fallen out with David Moyes?

Big Sam-Agents-Ravel

Very interesting read this article, the full length version goes on to reveal that Ravel Morrison was asked to sign a new deal while at west ham, on improved terms, despite having TWO years left on his contract, just so long as he changed agents to Mark Curtis, who happened to be big sam's agent as well as chicken kiev's, winston reid, andy carroll and several others who were at the club, Morrison didn't want to show any disallegiance to the agent he then had and declined the offer, this was a short time after Morrison had 'dismantled' Tottenham on their own ground.

Moyes's Redemption

It's been a long time coming, but David Moyes looks like a man who has had a great burden lifted from his shoulders, he finally appears to have put his 'Manchester United ghosts' behind him. One of the ironies associated with this strangest of seasons, is that Moyes path to redemption has been partly paved by another United exile in the form of Jesse Lingard.
