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:

So That'll Be The Dia!


Among the horse riding fraternity there is a golden rule, if you fall off your horse, the first thing you do after having dusted yourself off is to get straight back on again, thus wiping out any fear you have of remounting while teaching the horse who is boss once and for all.

Eriksen And Giroud Porkies?

As we approach the beginning of the 'window that never was' for West Ham United, it is common knowledge regarding the lack of funds available, the club is currently borrowing large amounts of money just to survive during the Covid-19/20/21 Pandemic! So when rumours regarding an ex-tottenham and an ex-arsenal, now Chelsea, player began to circulate they were greeted with a fair amount of scepticism.

Moyes Annoyed By 'Noise'

Hammers' wing back Authur Masuaku's now deleted instagram message, detailing how he had just had corrective surgery on his knee that had caused him to be in acute pain for the last TWO years, was as a result of 'miscommunication'. When David Moyes did his Press conference ahead of tonight's eagerly anticipated clash with Leeds United at Elland Road, he made no mention at all regarding Masuaku's operation, which has left many observers baffled.

Who Are West Ham's Defensive Targets?

The Irons might have made a solid start to the Barclays Premier League season, but only a fool would say there isn't a need to look at defensive reinforcement in the January transfer window. With the opening of that less than a month away, we look at the names in the frame.

Number 5. Samuel Umtiti

Irons Beat Aston 'Balletic'

Perhaps we at the Org are getting old, but when Jack 'I can drive my Range Rooney Up Other People's exhausts' Grealish did a 'Salaesque' pirouette almost half a second after having been tackled in order to 'earn' his team a free kick from which they eventually scored, opinions about Villa's star man varied from preening ballerina to a lot worse.

Transfer Window Countdown

Deadline day, or Deadly day? As the clock counts down Hammers fans will be hoping that there will not be any major outgoings from the club, particualrly that of Declan Rice. Unless the co-owners intend leaving the country permanently there is no way they will sanction the sale of the club's prized asset with just a few hours to go.

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.
