I can't help but think that one of the main reasons West Ham have been so poor at home this season is the size of the pitch. At Upton Park the pitch was 100m long and 64m wide. The Olympic Stadium is 105m long and 68m wide.

The players just don't know what to do when other teams that can actually play the ball around utilise the extra space. Noble and Obiang were chasing shadows tonight as the Manchester City midfield just breezed pass them over and over again.

Either the squad needs to work on that size pitch over and over again in training each day, or the club need to change to dimensions back to the size at Upton Park.

It's a tough choice. move the pitch away from the stands even further, or continue to play into the hands of opposition teams that pass the ball around.

My understanding is that all the training pitches are the same size as the LS, Upton Park pitch was smaller due to the restrictions of the ground it self . I believe that the regulations regarding pitch sizes is quite strict .

2.) 02 Feb 2017 08:03:53
it' the same width as Palace and we played ok there.

3.) 02 Feb 2017 08:50:05
My mate who supports saints has been telling me since fonte had his medical that he's lost his legs and never been the same since euros

4.) 02 Feb 2017 10:02:13
Yeah I posted on this a few weeks back, they mentioned it on live commentary last night too that we should make the pitch smaller, but yes, our pitch is smallest allowed by EPL regulations, UP was smaller as we just couldn't make it any bigger



01 Feb 2017 16:15:48
Apparently we turned down the chance to sign Martin Caceres in January because he wanted £100k a week.

If Caceres was willing to join at £50k a week I think he'd be a decent signing.

I also think a short term deal until the end of the season for Didier Drogba would be a good bit of business.




30 Jan 2017 23:46:17
ssn reporting West Ham have pulled out of the race to sign Scott Hogan. Apparently it is Bilic that decided not to pursue the deal as he doesn't feel he needs Hogan given the players he already has at the club.

I can only assume that's because Bilic has identified another target or Calleri is staying. Given that Antonio and Carroll seem to be working well together up too, Sakho is due to return from injury imminently and Ayew is about to return from AFCON now Ghana have been knocked out.

Personally I am not disappointed if we miss out on Hogan. I think the guy has talent, but he would represent too much of a risk given his injury history.




30 Jan 2017 10:50:17
Now that it looks unlikely Carl Jenkinson is going to join Crystal Palace, is there any chance we might go in for him on loan? Sullivan has said he is wants more British players, and Jenkinson had a decent season at Upton Park.


1.) 30 Jan 2017 11:43:53
Am I hearing right? Ashley Fletcher and Reece Oxford are being loaned out?

WTF is going on? And what the hell is happening with our forwards

2.) 30 Jan 2017 13:02:12
He did well for us and I'd have him back . I know some will say not good enough but are most likely the same ones who said that fellani wasn't good enough for us to bid on last summer, go figure?

3.) 30 Jan 2017 13:03:17
Why have we re-opened talks with Hogan? Howe much more talking needs to be done with this player who clearly wants to come to us! Surely this should all have been ironed out over the last 6 months (seems like 6 months) when talks were ongoing!

4.) 30 Jan 2017 11:25:46
Hi ed is it true Hogan will sign today.

{Ed002's Note - I think soon.}

5.) 30 Jan 2017 13:14:32
Ed said yesterday that the talks are over the payment schedule Phil, don't know any more than that

6.) 30 Jan 2017 13:39:22
We have asked Chelsea to talk to fabrigas they are considering it as we want him as abig signing to replace payet

7.) 30 Jan 2017 14:13:45
I'd be amazed if this happens cesc next move would be back home or China in my opinion one that might is if Craig gordon went to Chelsea we might get begovic but neither deal will happen one in a million chance for me any.

8.) 30 Jan 2017 14:34:50
Wouldn't be a bad move that's for sure but what do Chelsea want in return

9.) 30 Jan 2017 16:29:19
A ground to play at when building the new bridge lol

10.) 30 Jan 2017 22:34:06
We have a massive advantage over villa regarding Hogan premiership football if we want him we will get him I know that sounds arrogant but it's the truth I'm hoping we pull a rabbit out of the hat like with Fernandez which very few people had any inkling he was going to sign so let's hope we get a good surprise and it's not sturridge.



25 Jan 2017 23:14:24
West Ham have had their latest offer for Robert Snodgrass accepted by Hull City. The player apparently favours a move to West Ham over Burnley and Middlesbrough who both had offers accepted earlier in the day.

In all likelihood I think this will spark a series of transfers at West Ham. If Snodgrass signs, it'll spell the end of Payet, apparently West Ham are currently delaying the Scott Hogan deal until Payet leaves.

If we do complete deals for Snodgrass and Hogan, and we follow that up with a right back before the window shuts, I think this will have been a good window. Frustrating, but good.


1.) 26 Jan 2017 06:58:23
Agreed and we would be lot stronger than we are. Would still like braithwaite pmsl

2.) 26 Jan 2017 07:53:41
Lol Phil you can't help yourself can ya haha

3.) 26 Jan 2017 09:31:12
Hi Phil

Have you got third party ownership in Braithwaite? as if we get him could be complicated. :)

4.) 26 Jan 2017 10:09:18
Sorry guys, can't help it. He is lightning, big, strong and knows his defensive duties as well as his attacking duties and he loves scoring goals (A Bit like Antonio but faster) . what's not to like :-) and at £10m for a 24 year old its a bargain cause he will only get better. We should be all over this. Braithwaite, Snodgrass and Van Der Wiel and this would be a good but frustrating window

5.) 26 Jan 2017 11:29:24
Clocks ticking though

6.) 26 Jan 2017 12:22:46
I just wonder, how can our deals with Snodgrass and Hogan depend on Payet situation? So the board are trying to tell us that if Payet was still with us we wouldn't have made any approach for Hogan or Snodgrass, even though we quite clearly need a striker or two even with Payet cause we've lost Zaza, caller is on his way and Martinez has gone to Oxford leaving us Ashley (who Leeds desperately want and sicknote Andy Carroll? Do they think we are stoopid?

I read an article earlier today on ssn that said Arsenal had been offered the chance to sign midfielder Rafinha from Barcelona.

He hasn't travelled with the Barcelona squad on their pre-season tour as he is currently recovering from injury, and previously Barcelona have said he won't be sold this summer.

Any chance we could look in to a loan deal?


1.) 21 Jul 2017 20:12:44
Some player if we could Barcelona only want between 25-27 mill for him.

2.) 22 Jul 2017 13:35:47
If Barcelona are willing to let rafinha go I don't think he's as good as u think and he won't come to us because of champions league football.



26 Jun 2017 20:38:44
Chelsea youngster Bertrand Traore has joined Lyon for just under £9 million?

Why have we not signed this lad? He is a class youngster.




15 Apr 2017 16:59:56
Drawing 2-2 with a team that hasn't scored in the 7 previous games, and not won since January is pathetic.

We cannot defend.


1.) 15 Apr 2017 17:15:22
It was obvious they would score, same as
Leicester would win there first away league
game against us and Bournemouth first
win in 2017 would come against us.

2.) 15 Apr 2017 17:32:33
Poor goalkeeping again how many more oints are we going to drop before Bilic brings Adrian back and why are we giving so many passes away.

3.) 15 Apr 2017 18:09:45
Instead of going for it Bilic makes a change in stoppage time and was asking the ref to blow for full time, we need to win games like this, we finished 7th last season and still couldn't attract decent players, it looks like we will just avoid relegation, so who will want to sign for us now?

4.) 15 Apr 2017 18:48:01
Same old, same old, passing back all the time inviting pressure on, WTF.
Love Bilic and so wanted him to succeed but afraid he isn't going to take us where we want to go.
Snodgrass was pants and yet he stays on till 81 minute and then Norbert comes on, we should be putting these teams to bed not bringing on a defender and trying to cling on for the last few minutes.
We could all see the equalizer coming, how many games have we lost now from winning positions?
Totally disillusioned by it all.

5.) 15 Apr 2017 19:15:35
22 points lost from winning position it's a joke and got to stop heads need to roll.

6.) 15 Apr 2017 20:00:32
Next weeks team will be interesting, all the
injuries and now byram suspension, who plays
RB? Kouyate? But then no midfield with
obiang out and noble suspension so maybe
norveidt will play there, or masuaka could
play RB and play cress at LB.

7.) 15 Apr 2017 22:23:11
A joke that's not funny anymore. Enough is enough. We need a manager that wants to win, blog has got to go.

8.) 16 Apr 2017 10:48:18
Didn't think fonte and Collins were that bad to be honest Randolph cost us 3 points not the defence he's basicallyou costing us nearly a goal a game championship goalie at best.

9.) 16 Apr 2017 12:01:04
I agree the goalkeeping position needs addressing in the summer. I don't think we spent money on gk since Rob Green! Adrian and Randolph have done decent but there not the quality we need to go forward. I'd like to think hart or butland but I think realistically begovic is our best chance of an upgrade.

10.) 16 Apr 2017 12:13:59
True mate, fonte and Collins put a shift in ( gutted for ginge because of how pleased he was when he ran back giving us a little jig ) fonte did well and put in a good last man clearing act . Randolph was awful give him a rest against Everton if not the rest of the season . Must add though that we did not create much again going forward with no one supporting Andy and when we had good ball no one making space or making runs . But never mind :) COYI's.

11.) 17 Apr 2017 00:56:53
Randolph needs to be dropped he is not a premier league goalkeeper, ginge has been great since he has come in but we do miss ogbonna at the back, I think Everton will turn us over lukaku is probably rubbing his hands together to face Randolph just hope fonte and ginge can put in the performance of there life's for us. big changes need to happen in the summer and we have abit more to cheer about next season.

12.) 17 Apr 2017 11:23:35
Too many goals shipped, too many defensive mistakes from winning positions. Transfer focus should be on a quality keeper and stronger, more composed defence. To be honest it must be difficult to remain composed when you've had a couple of clowns in Orange behind you though! For me I'd heavily invest in Joe Hart, Nathan Ake and Kone, get Kompany and Zabelletta on the cheap and if wages allow bring in Jermaine Defoe. Add to this the likes of Oxford, Burke, Samuelson etc and let the following go. Adrian, Arbeloa, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Snodgrass, Valencia, Calleri, Noble and Tore.



31 Jan 2017 23:26:59
This Summer had better be a VERY good transfer window for West Ham. I want to see a decent goalkeeper brought in to replace Adrian, a decent right back, another central defender and AT LEAST TWO forwards.

I also want to see Sigurdsson signed up, regardless of whether Swansea beat the drop.


1.) 01 Feb 2017 14:51:39
I thought sigurdson was older than 27, think Swansea would want 30 million for him though, surprised one of the bigger clubs haven't tried to sign him looks a typical arsenal player to me wouldn't mind him at our place though.



31 Jan 2017 08:55:34
Jack Sullivan is saying that it's unlikely we will make any signings today unless someone exceptional becomes available. Apparently Bilic would rather keep the cash for the summer to invest then.


1.) 31 Jan 2017 09:49:22
I think holding out till the summer is the most logical option. To buy hogan would be a mistake, he won't work with our style of play, one striker supported by 3 attacking players across the field. How often does billic play 2 strikers? When sakho played with Carroll he was pushed to the right side of midfield. Hogan playing as the lone striker will be no different then playing Calleri, no hold up play, left isolated, with little defensive contribution. It's a little risky with Carrolls injury record, Sakho out for another 4/ 6weeks, Calleri still finding his feet and Fletcher needing more experience, I'm not saying we don't need a striker now but hogan is not the right answer and with no time left I'd rather we save our money till the summer then waste it on a bench warmer, unless we change our whole system? Then what we go for anther striker in the summer? Hogan a 6 month fix? worst case Carroll gets injured, we play with Antonio up front supported by lanzini, Feghouli, Snodgrass. Then go after batshuayi, sturridge etc in the summer.

2.) 31 Jan 2017 10:02:43
It's my opinion a right back is more importent in this window then a stiker/ scott hogan.

According to tv Anderlecht pull plug on Mitrovic deal because they have failed to sell another player to cover the Costner of the deal.

Doesn’t look like Dendoncker is on his way anywhere.

I for one have decided I’m not renewing my season ticket and won’t buy a new one until DG and DS have sold the club.
