Ironmike what's going on at your club, this summer I bumped into ex west ham striker and I told him west ham would be the dark horses for top 4 and maybe higher.

If we ever get going ( and I'm sure we will ) then did it why not :)

2.) 26 Sep 2016 11:21:08
It makes me laugh how we are reportedly being linked with a move for Fabregas? Surely our first priority has to be DEFENDERS! How many times do we have to say it. Our full backs are not good enough so the CB's are being pulled out wide to cover for their shortfalls leaving huge gaps in the centre as we are being ripped apart. NO challenge from midfield. Noble looks leggy, slow, bereft of ideas and dejected. Kouyate ain't much better! got to bring some young blood in and get rid of the summer rubbish we bought and WOW did we get some rubbish over the summer. TORE can go home (No wonder Turkey left him home for the Euro's) . Nordvedt needs to be let go on a free to anywhere (My under 8's team needs someone), Zaza is the worst and needs to be sent home NOW. If we pay £20m+ for him then am going to refuse to go to any more matches with my little lad because its our money they are wasting! If we don't cut off the life line they WON'T listen until of course we've played 28 games and then it will be far too late to do anything about it! WHat I keep asking is "If we fans can see these problems and these rubbish players, why on earth can't SLAVEN BILIC. He gets paid handsomely to constantly play crap players" WTF was NORDVEDT doing in the same CITY never mind same pitch?

3.) 26 Sep 2016 16:24:28
It'll be alright next week they've sent that patronising open letter to all the supporters again lol

On a more serious note we need to play 3 in centre of the park Fernandes, obiang and kouyate but bilic doesn't seem to want to try anything different.

4.) 26 Sep 2016 18:12:24
What would you have them do then Redrobbo2 just stay quiet and say nothing?
Stoke are in a similar predicament to us and nothing from their board, just silence.
I know which I prefer!

5.) 26 Sep 2016 22:33:19
Yeah but Swansea are expected to part ways with guidolin with giggs already being touted as replacement.

6.) 26 Sep 2016 23:51:45
Yes gerry I'd rather they said nothing instead of constantly talking rubbish it's been the same all summer, talked rubbish about transfers overspent on poor players, and now writing open letters, would rather they went about their business much more quietly instead of yapping and still not really saying anything, it insults our intellegence as supporters that they tell us they are trying to sort things out really? They've just had a transfer window chasing fantasy targets instead of seeing to the teams needs.

7.) 27 Sep 2016 09:00:41
I think there needs to be some sort of change in formation and definitely personel. I think zaza needs someone alongside him so maybe try 5-3-2, put Oxford in with Reid and ogbonna and then our full backs have extra cover behind if they go forward. We then have to sacrifice lanzini I believe for now and have some legs in midfield kouyate and obiang and settle for one flair player being payet. Noble as someone said looks well out of sorts and off the pace this year. Zaza has looked poor but he is so isolated up front, I don't thibk he's a player that can play up top on his own.

8.) 27 Sep 2016 09:02:09
And as much as I love antonio, he was at fault for a couple of the goals the other day not tracking his man. He needs to learn his defensive responsibilities before he comes back in the team.

9.) 27 Sep 2016 11:03:52
Hammer316, I like your thinking. Agreed about Antonio also but how about this? As Zaza is struggling, how about starting with Antonio up front :-) Payet/ feghouli and or Lanzini in behind him. Play Oxford Edmilson and Obiang (am resting Kouyate and Noble) in front of back 5 with three CB's and the two full backs? See how it pans out and if it don't work change it :-)

10.) 27 Sep 2016 11:11:48
Woops that's 12 including the goalie. I would play 5-3-1-1 with Edmilson, Obiang and Oxford in front of our 3 CB's allowing Byram and Arbeloa/ Cresswell to go forward with Payet supporting Antonio.

11.) 28 Sep 2016 21:30:26
Yh could work. We need to do something to make us more solid. With payet we will always create chances, we should focus on stabilising defensively and if that means we sacrifice an attacking player or 2 then so be it to get some confidence back in the team.

Lads spurs fan in peace, last night when they said on tv that there was a big signing at West ham and I laughed at the purchase Hughill from Preston. The board are taking the mick out of your fans with cheap buys like that as you only after look at spurs bringing in moura for 25 mill, aubameyang to Arsenal for 65 mill and giroud to Chelsea for 18 mill and are all top class players. You boys have a massive following and will be paying top dollar to watch west ham games and the board are repaying you with buys like that. Everything is in place for west ham to be a champions league club with the stadium, fanbase etc it's your board who have zero ambition.

the raver

1.) 01 Feb 2018 15:08:22
Hi raver
I actually totally agree with you on this and
that is hard for me to say as yr a spurs fan
Gold Sullivan Brady are sucking my club
The three stooges are probably sitting there
counting all there money they have made
from us fans
It’s despicable the way they run my club
I believe in karma and I hope it happens to

2.) 01 Feb 2018 15:42:24
And we need you to tell us this do we RAVER?

3.) 01 Feb 2018 15:52:11
Well I am happy with the events of the last few months:
1 We are now mid table and should avoid the drop
2 We have an excellent manager
3 He has an experienced assistant in Stuart Pearce
4 We have sold on Ayew and Sakho
5 We have unearthed Declan Rice
6 The manager called back young loan player. These and other youngsters have been given a run and it has established that none of them are currently Premier League quality at this moment.
7 Instead of hanging onto them some have gone back on loan. I assume to be sold or returned to the fold for next season
8 Money has not been wasted on more of the same as the last few windows.
9 A few of the senior players who were not contributing are now getting some form back.
10 If what we read is correct Moyes is bringing discipline back to the club and with a higher level ion fitness.
11 Mpyes has sorted out the goalkeeping situation with Adrian rightfully back and I assume we will not have Hart next season.
12 Fonte is back from injury so we have more options at the back and more cover.

So as I say I am a contented hammer and look forward to a much better season in 18/ 19.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 17:03:50
Where’s the progress if all we are doing is
just avoiding relegation
Where is the investment the board promised
I agree we do look fitter and play more of a
team under Moyes but the board have not
stuck by their word of moving us to the next
level if results go against us this weekend we
could be closer to bottom 3 than mid table.

5.) 01 Feb 2018 18:08:35
Syd, I am with you on this entirely, but I feel very sorry for many of the posters on this sight who are so passionate, they fork out for season tickets, travel to away games, they are hardcore supporters and are fuming at the lack of investment by the board😠 I no longer go very frequently now since moving to Chelmsford and age creeping along now (73) but like most of us fans W, H. Is in my blood⚒⚒
There are things in life you can’t change as much as you want them to, so it’s not good for your health to let it get to you! I personally feel as you do, we will be ok hopefully, but even more money spent on transfers is no guarantee! Just a shame Slav seemed to have a sloppy laid back attitude that certain players took advantage of and he should have gone a lot quicker than he did. Trouble is all Premiership Managers and players are millionaires, so all this pressure business is b———-. do they care about being sacked, of course not, same as the board, loadsamoney £££££££. ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.

6.) 01 Feb 2018 19:52:22
You are 75 percent correct but not 100 massive part of WH problem is we are paying high wages
Far too high for non performing players and far too high for a club outside the top six we are not getting value for mioney that’s the problem IRONMIKE.

7.) 01 Feb 2018 22:29:50
That is the fewest amount of words that is 1000000% right MIKE nail on the head they shouldn't come out with ridiculous statements and broken promises we live in a tough world where it's hard to make a living and fund football money and when that money's going not back into the club what do people on this site expect come on. COYI⚽⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒.



27 Jan 2018 20:11:23
Thanks West ham for having a worst result in the cup than Tottenham, I don't understand why you didn't go full strength today as you are in mid table and won't be going down and it's the only cup you could win this season.

the raver

1.) 28 Jan 2018 12:11:31
We weren't far from being at full strength. 13 first team players injured will do that to a team.



06 Nov 2017 15:40:02
Ironmike it's Ching Ching time from the bookies for you mate and I hope you spend it wisely, you are more than welcome to join the raver at Stringfellows for a beer or ten. As for bilic going I do feel for the bloke a bit as he was West ham through and through. I thought he was going to do a good job for you boys but I think it started falling apart when payet left the club. As for a new manager why not give redknapp another go as he would take you boys close to the champions league as he did it with spurs with a bang average side at the time. I also heard Alan Devonshire has done a brilliant job at non league so he could be redknapps assistant manager.

the raver

1.) 06 Nov 2017 17:35:07
Thanks for the invite Raver, very nice thought mate, I WILL take up your offer. BUT I am busy lizzy at this time at end of the season PERHAPS? Regards IRONMIKE.

2.) 06 Nov 2017 21:47:38
Raver you seem to be here a lot, are you closet Westham? Come out mate and join the family.



02 Nov 2017 10:38:36
Any of you boys enjoyed watching spurs stuff the biggest club in world football last night lol.

the raver

1.) 02 Nov 2017 13:12:45
I did watch Raver and was not overly impressed, we all know Real are on the way down, ZZ will be sacked before long so you played them at the best time.

Oh did you see the biggest club in the World at Wembley last week?, 2 goals up at half time against a second string WH team and your bottle went. ahhhhhh I said to my Mrs a few years back that every time we beat Spurs I would treat her. costing me a bloody fortune!

2.) 02 Nov 2017 14:25:39
I thought Spurs were superb. I hope that they go a lot further in the champions league.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 14:46:01
Hi Raver, Spurs played very well, and took their chances and there were plenty of them, NO DISCREDIT to Spurs but Madrid are nowhere near the team that won this competition. Last year, but you can only beat what’s in front of you IRONMIKE.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 14:56:12
Warrington spurs must have saved you some cash a few weeks ago at the Daley Thompson stadium as we beat you 3-2 in the league lol.

5.) 03 Nov 2017 10:12:47
Yes Raver your right, the mighty Spurs hung on desperately after being 3 up, thanks for that. All joking aside you do have a very decent team, and as long as Levy puts his hand in his pocket you may be able to keep it all together

The problem lie is when Poch gets offered the Madrid Job and decides he wants Kane and Ali along side a few others will the pound signs start to reflect in Levy eyes?

The problem I see is as soon as the manager goes and takes your most influential players with him, you may find your back to square 1, as I don't think Levy will page the wages to replace your best players. still enjoy while it lasts,

6.) 03 Nov 2017 10:56:55
Fully agree with you Seymour, we've always been a selling club and that won't stop until you get owners like Chelsea etc where money is no object. I do think that the manager, Kane and Ali will be gone within 2 years time.



25 Oct 2017 22:00:12
Well done on your cup final win against your mighty neighbours, when you pulled 1 back I knew you would go on and win the game as we still have a soft underbelly which I thought we got rid of. It shouldn't take spurs to up your game as you should be putting those performances in week in week out . As I'm a honest poster I give stick and I always take it back in great strides so well done boys.

the raver

1.) 26 Oct 2017 08:21:43
Much respect raver Spuds are a good team but still lack something to turn them into a great side. For us it means nothing if we lose on Saturday against Palace. Thanks for maybe kick starting our season. COYI.

I'm here Phil, the raver always shows his mug and doesn't go hiding. I give it large and take it back in good humour everytime. We were utter crap and very lucky to be still in the cup and Rochdale fully deserve a replay.

The four times winners you mean and are the best club in Italy, 3 more victorys in Europe and we will be lifting the big ears trophy to complete every European trophy won for the famous spurs, in the quarter finals of the FA cup, European cup and are guaranteed to finish top 4 while building the biggest ground in London. Enjoy your usual relegation battle lol.
