Moyes Loses Mentor

Preston North End owner and prominent horse racing figure Trevor Hemmings has died at the age of 86, Hemmings bought a controlling interest in Preston in June 2010 after the troubled Lancashire club had received a winding up petition.The leisure tycoon was also a leading racehorse owner, winning the Grand National on three occasions, he was largely regarded as a saviour in Preston and will be sorely missed. The Club released a short statement on Monday evening to confirm Hemmings, who lived on the Isle of Man, had died.

Iron's In Lingard's Fire

Jesse Lingard and his agent, who is also his brother, have been playing a cat and mouse game with Manchester United since the attacking midfielder returned to Old Trafford from his highly successful loan spell at West Ham. The player who is a youth product from the Carrington based academy, returned to the North of England confident that he had showed enough during his time in the capital to be recalled to Ole Gunnar's first team, despite the arrival of Jayden Sancho!

You Know It's The Break Because..Ramsey To West Ham?

'You've' a' got to be kidding..Ramsey to West Ham? Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said that he can still be a success at the Serie A club, amid 'strong interest' from West Ham, strong disinterest more like! Yet another overpaid, over the hill ex-Gooner being lazily 'linked' with West Ham.

You Know It's The Break Because..Sanchez To West Ham?

The International break never fails to amuse and annoy in equal measure, not only for the strain put on players travelling afar and risking injury, or burn out or both, but because of the proliferation of absurd transfer 'stories' that invariably surface like unwanted toilet flotsam reappearing!

The Elephant In The Toon!

Just when Hammers fans began to dream of their club becoming genuine top six contenders on a regular basis, along comes a competitor who can blow not only West Ham, but any other club in World football completely out of the water! Irrespective of the possible human rights and slavery abuses allegedly carried out by the de facto owners of the state investment fund that has just purchased Newcastle United from Mike Ashley, the fact is the numbers won't add up for West Ham.

Hammers Lining Up Sensational Belotti Deal!

West Ham made tentative steps back in the last transfer window to sign Italian striker Andrea Belotti, his exploits during the recent Euros highlighted what a gifted player the 27 year old is. His season has not got of to the best of starts at Torino as he is currently sidelined with a tendon injury that has kept him out for the last six games and seen him omitted from the Italian national team, there are some who say Italy's unbeaten record would still be intact had he been available for the game against Spain in the nation's league semi final.

Good Tidings Come In 3's

Success breeds success, but with it comes responsibilities and commitments, it is a mark of just how far West Ham have progressed under David Moyes since his resurrection, that fans have rightly been concerned as to the impact so many players jetting off for fixtures will have on the club's domestic and European challenges.

Even Better News-More Sanity!

Fans prayers have been answered with the news that Hammers only striker Michail Antonio, will NOT be joining up with the Jamaica squad for their three World Cup qualifiers. Joining up with the reggae boyze would have involved a 10,500 flight, excluding the onward phases!

Common Sense Prevails

As any observer from a distance could tell you and anyone with the vaguest awareness of Sports rehabilitation would confirm, West Ham United's Vladimir Coufal has looked well off the pace from his usual high standards and that his recent performances have been well under par. His Czech Republic manager Jaroslav Šilhavý obviously thought so, as Vlad has been replaced for his national team's three games and instead will be able to have an unheard of 10 days full recovery time.

Confused? You Should Be!

As if it wasn't enough with newly capped Jamaica international Michail Antonio heading to North America for a trio of matches just four weeks on from making his Reggae Boyz debut, but Pablo Fornals is playing in the Nations Cup, England's failure to reach the closing stages of the 'B' competition means most fans don't even remember the competition ever existed?
