Hallerween! D-Day For Striker

OK big man, a message from west ham fans, you were furious with 'bug eye', 'the corpse' or whatever you want to call your manager David Moyes, when he replaced Michail Antonio with Yarmolenko instead of you against Manchester City. Another in a long line of snubs, or just how the cookie crumbles? Having banged in goals for fun in the Elk Cup hopes were high that there would be a chance of 'significant' minutes on the pitch in the Barclays Premier League, unfortunately due to an injury picked up in training it was not to be.

That's Torn It! Antonio Out For Ages

Contrary to the hopeful images we saw of Michail Antonio at Rush Green, the Hammers striker has been side lined for what could be up to six weeks with an injury to his troublesome hamstring, it is a situation that was always going to potentially occur, but the timing was not anticipated.

Big Mich Returns To light Training

In what will be seen as a very positive sign, West Ham United striker Michail Antonio has been pictured taking part in a supervised light session at the club's Rush Green training ground.

Hall Or High Water?

Wenger Helped Wilshere Secure Irons Deal

Arsene Wenger gave Wilshere his Arsenal debut in 2008, and remains a useful source of advice, the pair spoke about his West Ham situation and will probably do so again before the midfielder decides on his new club. Ah that's nice, Jack's mentor is helping him out, but why exactly?

Mesut 'Over The Hill' Ozil To Irons Joke!

Dear Old Carlton Cole, he of the famous 'smokin' head' post match interview, seems to have been smoking something else if his collaboration with Talk Sport is to be believed. The Hammers stalwart is quoted as saying why Ozil would be a good acquisition "West Ham have always liked those kind of players, those magician-like players. Arsenal would have benefited from having him in their squad, but he clearly doesn’t fit in at the moment.”

Moyes' Selection Dilema Ahead Of City

On what must be one of the rare occassions in a long managerial career, Hammers' boss David Moyes has an unusual dilema to resolve, namely how to keep everyone happy in a squad from which only 18 players can be involved on match days. Of course his squad is perilously short of numbers in certain areas, but he is able to select an incredibly impressive bench to support the starting eleven, and as all Hammers fans know, if there is an injury to be had, usually long term, then West Ham will be the most likely destination!

Does Michail Antonio Deserve Another Shot With England?

West Ham striker Michail Antonio is still waiting for his first cap for England but he has only been called up to the national team squad on two occasions. Former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce named Antonio in his squad for a World Cup qualifier against Slovakia in 2016, where he didn't make the bench. More recently, Antonio was also included in Gareth Southgate’s squad for games against Germany and Lithuania. Unfortunately, he was forced to pull out after picking up a hamstring injury.
