Ahead of Thursday night's fixture, Rapid Vienna defender Kevin Wimmer has claimed that the Austrian club’s fans will create a better atmosphere than the Home fans at the London Bowl, and he could be right! How many times have you watched West Ham away only to hear Hammers fans out singing the home fans?

How many times have you heard the away supporters out singing the crowd at Hammers home grounds? We would suggest the answer is often! The very nature of being an away supporter, especially those who have travelled by sea and air, is that you are there for the full experience.

AFCON To Heavily Influence Hammers

Submitted by Louis Nixon on Tue, 28/09/2021 - 10:14

Hammers need for a back up striker to work in tandem with Michail Antonio, is a worst kept secret that has received even more column inches than the Declan Rice transfer saga that has been whipped up by the media for what seems to be an eternity. David Moyes has come in for a lot of criticism for not bringing in an additional striker, he has cited the difficulty in (a) finding a striker who fits into the club's fiscal zone and (b) finding a striker willing to play second fiddle to a player who is currently the joint best striker in Europe!

Manuel Pellegrini seems to have become the Asp that keeps on biting, not only did he and his accomplice fleece the club of all it's funds by buying expensive players unsuited to the Barclays Premier League and then not using them correctly, but also there is now visible evidence that those same players are now performing admirably elsewhere, albeit in Leagues that suit them perfectly, is it something to do with the old curse?

Tottingham supporters trying to avoid the gaze of their London rivals supporters from all across the capital following this weekend's results will do well to remember some of their chants about Hammers being London's cheapo un achieving club. A quick glance at the Barclays Premier League table will however show them that Hammers are currently the 2nd best placed London Club behind Chelsea, the same as it was at the end of last season.

Hammers (Un)united Folly

At the Org we are split into two 'friendly' factions as to the stewardship of West Ham United since Gold & Sullivan took over the club from those venerable 'families' who had previously 'looked after the club, the Cairns and latterly the Brown's dynasties. For the term 'looked after', you can legitimately substitute the words 'didn't invest and took all the cash', so just remember how easy it is to 'vision', with claret & blue spectacles, how perfec' everything was back at the jolly old' Boleyn Ground.

For years and years Hammers fans have gazed enviously at other clubs from the capital, as they progressed up the food chain, in Chelsea's case, or maintained their 'top club' status from the past inexorably. Arsenal were serial Champions League qualifiers and Tottingham did their best to actually win something without success.
