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.

Winning Ugly Can Take Hammers to Europe

West Ham secured another valuable win over Leeds United, but you might have been forgiven in thinking they had lost considering the reaction of manager David Moyes and his players. The Irons managed to produce a dogged performance to grind out a 2-0 win over Marcelo Bielsa’s men, and it’s that type of display that could see West Ham secure European football for next term.
Moyes Sets the Standards

Hot Shots Part Deux!

West Ham United have shown desire to bring Sparta Prague protoge Adam Hlozek to the London Stadium this month, Sparta are demanding £20 million for the 18 year old striker, although the initial fee would only be around £14 million with the rest as add ons.
On the one hand it is an extraordinary fee to pay for an 18 year old, but Hammers defacto Czech target agent, Tomas Soucek, has recommended the youngster most highly, rating him as the best young forward available in Europe at this time, an impressive accolade indeed.

Four Crying Out Loud Strikers!

Inevitably since the departure of Sebastien Haller from West Ham to Ajax, speculation has been rife with regards to who, or whom, would be replacing the catastrophically unsuited to the Barclays Premier League dud. There are as you would expect names a plenty being mentioned, so we have decided to list them in a two part article, the first list of which follows and is alphabetical:

FLYNN DOWNES: THE LEAGUE ONE MIDFIELDER THAT COULD REPLACE RICE


The Premier League is back. No fans, social distancing subs and fake crowd noise has been introduced but on the pitch nothing much has changed. Officials are still making almost unbelievable mistakes and David Luiz is a liability. Then there is West Ham.

Ahead of the games against Chelsea and Newcastle, most fans would have been overjoyed at the prospect of emerging with four points, and yet in the cold light of day people will be disappointed with the club having only attained just the four points, the two 'lost' points may come back to haunt David Moyes who was none too happy with the way his team conceded the 2nd Newcastle goal, only 81 seconds after scoring through the superb Tomas Soucek.

Irons Join The Predators For Kipre
