Seven Steps Left To Heaven Or Hell

The last Hundred Yards is always the hardest to complete in any distance running, race leaders can be caught agonisingly close to the finish line as the rest of the pack sail past them, and it is much the same in elite football. Irrespective of where West Ham United finish in this season's Barclays Premier League, fans can be rightly proud of how their team has 'duked it out' with the big boys, despite having the least well equipped squad to deal with the challenge.

Is(s) A Diop CDM A Moyes Master Ploy?

David Moyes's reluctance in using Conor Coventry alongside Tomas Soucek has perplexed many Hammers fans, but credit where due, captain Mark Noble has stepped up to the plate and put in a couple of stellar performances. Unfortunately he has joined what has become a burgeoning list of injured players for the medical team to deal with.

Medics Meltdown At 'Goose Green'

They knew it wasn't a case of if, but when, the medical emergencies would begin to rack up at Hammers' Rush (Goose) Green treatment room, and so it has come to pass. Apart from Michail Antonio's specially cordoned off 'hamstring area', due to the almost perpetual need to leave the space free in order to accommodate his huge thighs, there is the Yarmo (not there) crypto trade complex funded by his £115,000 per week wages.

Bobby's Day

'Sir' Robert Frederick Chelsea Moore, the greatest defender of all time, was born this day in 1941. Sadly England's World Cup winning captain succumbed to cancer, and despite battling bravely, died on the 24th of February 1993.

The Most Exciting Young Players To Watch In The Premier League

In recent years a new breed of successful football players have become much younger, and the stars we see can only get better with age. Just imagine: Erling Haaland is just 20, Killian Mbappe is 22, so their potential peak is in the future. And there are so many examples of leaders in PL teams below 23 years old, like Bukayo Saka (19, Arsenal), Phil Foden (20, Manchester City) or Mason Mount (22, Chelsea), that you should be ready to support talents from the very young age.

Three Wheels On The 'Ham Wagon'

The end of Hammers 3-2 win over Leicester City was like the Alamo, again!what is it with West Ham? Are the club secretly trying to kill off a large amount of fans with suspect hearts? There can be no other explanation as to why a hugely over achieving team can go in to matches devoid of their best players,  and then race to a three goals a game advantage and then have to battle through the rest of the game to survive!

Moyes To Annoy-Again!

David Moyes made over 550 league appearances in his career as a player before becoming coach at Preston, since then he has managed over 575 Premier League Games, pushing him towards an incredible 1000 games in his managerial career, the figure currently stands at 974!

Bowen Escapes Ban

Jarrod Bowen has escaped major sanction, but has been warned by the Football Association over a tweet from 2012 that contained a racist term. The 24-year-old will also complete an FA education course for the tweet, which he made when he was 15. Bowen apologised for the content of the post earlier in April, describing it as "offensive and immature".
