There Is Hope For Fans

The waiting list, or more appropriately the length of the waiting list for season tickets looks like getting longer for most due to Hammers impressive form thus far this season, consequently the uptake of season ticket renewals is anticipated to be between high and very high!

Could The LS Ever Be Fit For Purpose?

The international break invariably 'throws up' a plethora of Hammers related articles that are 'left field', and during this break attention has turned to 'the most successful stadium move ever', as described by Lady Brady! After five years the initial problems remain the same, ie the collosal distance between the fans and the pitch.

International Break Good For Some But Not All

The two week international break will be a welcome blessing to those recovering from injury and those who have run their hearts out, during the 'compressed' season, that is unless the player has been called way to represent their country. Playing for one's country has always been seen as the ultimate accolade that can be achieved in the game, but it can come at an enormous cost, both to player and club.

Live West Ham v Arsenal Line Ups

West Ham: Fabianski, Cresswell, Coufal, Diop, Dawson, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Lingard, Benrahma, Antonio. Subs: Martin, Trott, Balbuena, Lanzini, Ibsen, Noble, Fredericks, Johnson, Odubeko.

Fornals And Yarmo Fit?

According to reports emanating from Hammers 'goose green' training ground, midfield dynamo Pablo Fornals and forward Andriy Yarmolenko will both be available for today's clash with London rivals Arsenal. 'Yarmo' is at best now seen as a 'fringe' player, whereas Fornals is seen as an integral component in the 'Moyes machine'.

Moyes Cannot Make The Same Mistake Twice!

The continued concern about the fitness of Hammers midfield dynamo, Pablo Fornals, means that David Moyes has a serious selection decision to make. Last time out, without Lingard who couldn't play, and Fornals who had picked up an injury during the victory over Leeds, Moyes elected to start club stalwart Mark Noble, and the result was clear for all to see.

Spuds Slip Up Is Salient Story

Apart from the obvious delight many Hammers fans feel at the Europa League demise of the team currently occupying 8th place in the Barclays Premier League team, Tottenham, there is a more serious point of contention that needs to be raised, namely that if a squad containing someone who is supposed to be one of the best strikers in the World, and a player who receives £600,000 per week from a combination of Real Madrid and Spurs payments, should be able to progress, at least to the quarter finals stage.

Lingard Gets His Reward

Almost inevitably, and especially given the 'injury crisis' the England International team manager Gareth Southgate has had to cope with, Jesse Lingard's fine form for West Ham while on loan from Manchester United has been rewarded with a recall to the National squad, having not prominently featured since the 2018 World Cup finals.

Big Mich Chooses Jamaica-But Do His Hamstrings?

Big Mich Antonio, or Mikey as his manager likes to call him, is the ever popular and effervescent 'false' striker employed by David Moyes to fill the expensive void left by the club's most expensive signing Sebastien Haller. The sale of the aforementioned to Ajax at an astonishing £25 Million loss, necessitated more game time for Antonio who has struggled with hamstring and thigh issues, mainly hamstring, ever since his arrival at the club from Nottingham Forest.

Weight Off Noble's Shoulders?

Mark Noble's comments, regurgitated by the Star, in which he discusses announcing his retirement and the club's potential to be playing in Europe next season, seem to make little sense, which is probably due to some amateurish copy and pasting!
