What Is It With Moyes And Benny?

David Moyes is one of the most experienced managers around, anywhere, so his actions are questioned by few and are usually justified by their end result, therefore it would be churlish to suggest that he has 'lost the plot' when it comes to his interaction with Said Benrahma.

Moyes 'Poker Face' Injuries

Ahead of what has become an increasingly important fixture against Burnley at Turf Moor this evening, Hammers coach David Moyes has been exercising his injuries poker face. He has already miss led certain sections of the media with his ambiguous comments as to the fitness of Mikey Antonio, Aaron Cresswell, Authur Masuaku and finally Declan Rice!

Villains Can Be Irons' Heroes!

At the end of last season Aston Villa managed to survive relegation by the skin of their teeth, their cause helped in no small measure by West Ham beating all the Villain's fellow relegation strugglers.

Irons Move To 'Firm UP' Moyes

David Moyes's managerial contract was always up for 'review' at the end of the season, and nothing has changed in that respect. It is common knowledge that was a clause added to his contract on his return to the London Stadium which was 'place dependent', essentially if the club finished eighth or above he would have to be offered a one year extension to his tenure.

Well, They Would Do That Wouldn't They? General's Red

Surprise, surprise, Fabian Balbueana's red card has been rescinded, all a bit too late now isn't it? OK the game might have been beyond the Irons with ten minutes left and a goal down against Chelsea, but going down to ten men and losing a defender who is very handy in the air didn't help matters!

The 29-year-old Paraguay international received a straight red card in the 81st minute for a 'foul' on Ben Chilwell that would have required the amputation of the 'General's' leg to avoid. David Moyes said the original decision had been made by someone "who's never played the game".

Michail Antonio Kidnapped?

The 'wheels of hope' are in full swing as 'positive' news is emerging as to the fitness and availability for players who have been sorely missed in recent games that have seen Hammers push for Europe falter. Aaron Cresswell and Authur Masuaku are looking nailed on for the next crucial game, against Burnley on the 1st of May, the Clarets having just dismantled Wolves by 4-0 at Molineaux.

Tammy Moves Closer

Hammers face up to Chelsea on Saturday for a game that could have far-reaching implications for both clubs, Champions League qualification is the holy grail awaiting the winners of the tie, defeat might condemn the losers to 'Europa League' ignominy.

One player who seems destined not to be part of the proceedings is Tammy Abraham, the Chelsea striker has been 'frozen out' of their first team since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager. Tuchel has made it clear that Abraham does not feature in his plans, leaving the 23 year old striker in 'no man's land'.
