Will Irons Be The Villains Or The Heroes?

Ahead of this afternoon's game against Aston Villa on the final day of the Barclays Premier League, Hammers fans will be in the unique position of NOT fearing the outcome. For the first time in this truncated and topsy turvy season, one group of viewers who wear claret and blue will be able to watch the match with absolutely no fear, whereas the other group will go through the Mill, and then some!

No More Crocks In The Box

West Ham are stepping up their interest in Brentford and Algeria forward 24 year old Said Benrahma, though much will depend on which division his club are in, Brentford needed four points from their final two games of the season to finish second after West Brom lost at Huddersfield, but back-to-back defeats mean Thomas Frank's side will now face Swansea in the play-off semi-finals as they bid to reach the top flight for the first time in 73 years.

Sous Chef Signs Up For 'Hell's Kitchen'!

Tomas Soucek's loan deal from Slavia Prague has now been converted in to a permanent signing, the 25 year old has signed a four year deal and has ended up costing West Ham just shy of £20 Million which includes the £4.25 Million initial loan fee. In the current Covid-19 climate, £20 Million is strong money, however Soucek has already shown how well equipped he is for the rigours of the Barclays Premier League, and his transfer fee will one day be seen as the absoute bargain that it really is.

BT Sport Saved The Best Till Last

The Broadcasters of West Ham United's final game of the Barclays Premier League project restart have finally been named as BT Sport, the announcement ends the confusion there had been regarding this crucial fixture, the significance of which may have slightly waned for Hammers fans, given their team's confirmation of survival following their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Wednesday evening, but it is a game of massive importance for the visitors!

Survival With Style

The phrase 'mathematically safe' can now be erased from the memory of West Ham supporters, at least for now, as the team held on for a well deserved draw away to a resurgent Manchester United at Old Trafford. Paul Pogba's leaping salmon hand ball from a Declan Rice srtike was the cue for 'big mick' Antonio to step up and take the penalty that was awarded. Many Hammers fans watched on with trepidation as Mr West Ham, captain Mark Noble, ceded the penalty taking role that he has made his own over the years in order for Antonio to reach double figures for this season's goal scoring.

TV 'Dilly Dallies' Over Irons v Villa But Moyes Is Busy

Perhaps it is because there have been so many Barclays Premier League games broadcast since project restart that details regarding coverage of the final day's games are still not confirmed, especially the Irons final game of the season against relegation threatened Aston Villa at the London Stadium.

Trouble At The Bubble Moyes Looks Out For In

Josh Cullen had his loan spell at Charlton from West Ham extended due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and is due to return to his parent club when the season finally ends, his current contract with the Irons is due to end on 30.06.2021 and important decisions need to be made for the player and club as to how best to move forward.

Wham Bam Thank You M'am 3-1 Will Do!

Like him or loathe him you cannot begrudge David Moyes' moment of joy, the much maligned Hammers manager, often portrayed as a cartoon zombie, 'ressurected' the fettid and rotting cadava of a team that he inherited from the previous 'daddy of them all' zombie on watch Manuel Pllegrini. There were two exceptions to the bloated imbalanced squad that Moyes had to motivate and mould after taking over the club's management for the second time, his two acquisitions during the January transfer window, Jarred Bowen and Tomas Soucek.
