Biesla 'Spies' The 'Antonio Job'

It is common knowledge that Leeds United's manager, Marcelo Biesla, is a stickler for his pre-planning and training specifically tailored against his team's next opponents, and apparently he has a 'cunning' plan set out in order to combat the attacking prowess of Michail Antonio, the scourge of many Barclays Premier League defenders.

Moyes 'Ballsy' About Rice

Ahead of what has increasingly become an essential game against Leeds United at the London Stadium this evening, Hammers boss David Moyes shed a little light on his aspirations for this season, and the unusual scenario he and his team now face.

Beware Bundesliga Blunders!

News that West Ham are interested in signing 6'7" striker Sasa Kalajdzic for a 'bargain' fee of around £15 Million from Stuttgart, should be greeted with a fair amount of caution. Apart from potentially being the Barclays Premier League's replacement for the much loved Peter Crouch, the 23 year old Austria international possesses very good technique in a similar way to 'Crouchy'.

The Bubble Had To Burst

Hammers lofty top four place in the Barclays Premier League was always going to be tenuous, and courtesy of some 'freak' scheduling, the Irons have been forced to look on as their 'elite' rivals make head way because the East London club have to wait until their next fixture against Leeds United on Monday the 8th of March, by which time several of their rivals will have played an astonishing THREE games more, meaning by the time David Moyes next sends out his 'troops' they could be in NINTH position before a ball is even kicked!

'BBC'-Help Hammers

The Blades, Burnley and Crystal Palace all helped West Ham's push for a top four spot by taking points of other top of the Barclays Premier League clubs. Aston Villa lost to 10 man Sheffield United, Burnley drew 1-1 with Leicester and Crystal Palace drew 1-1 with Manchester United.

Villa's unexpected loss removes their game in hand from the equation, and Leicester's dropping of two points, and even also United's loss of points might still have some bearing of the final outcome of what will be a tightly contested top four shoot out.

From 4th To 9th Without Playing A Game?

Conspiracy theorists who were around in 1986 might just be starting to feel a little bit of deja vu as Hammers begin their final run in of the Barclays Premier League season. For those too young to remember, or those who weren't even born then, here is a brief resume˘of what occurred.

Murphy Provides NEW Teamtalk

Hot on the heels of Jose Mourinho's 'inspired' pre-match comments that helped fire the Irons up ahead of their victory over Tottenham, a club who currently languish in NINTH place, busted flush Danny Murphy has just provided another 'incentivised' article which should do just the trick.

Another One Gone Too Soon

Glenn Roeder sadly passed away today at the terribly young age of 65, he had been 'medically troubled' ever since having the need for surgery to deal with a brain tumour while he was the manager of West Ham. He returned to the dug out seven months later and endured torrid abuse from the supporters of some visiting fans, and unfortunately from some home fans as well, they know who they are!
