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.

Ray Winstone, Danny dyer, Russell brand, Jeremy Kyle you boys had the runaround against this class spurs side again. If we had 11 men we would have put 5 or 6 on you today but nevermind that was win puts us back in the top 4 while you are back in your usual place the bottom 3 lol. I'm off out tonight to get absolutely smashed in London so I will line my stomach with a good old pie and mash.

the raver

1.) 23 Sep 2017 20:45:25
I hope you do get absolutely smashed!
what are spurs? You don't win prem or champs league so what is it you do for a BIG club? Man city, utd and chelsea would have held out easy against us today with 10 men but you bricked it!
Get a big stadium for a year and your players don't know what to do lol, we admit we are pony that's why we are always here moaning so very well done for winning lol.

2.) 25 Sep 2017 13:05:25
And then you've just ruined it to say you were 5-6 goals better than us is utter bollocks before you scored you hadn't made hart work once and we had 3 valid penalty shouts which one was a definitely penalty and watch when KANE gets injured your well and truly bang in trouble mate we've played city united and you and you are well and truly miles behind them and next year KANE and ALI heads will be turned and offered astronomical wages and they will go and by the way don't try and sign lanzini because you'd be backtracking. COYI.



01 Sep 2017 11:46:50
I see Karen Brady mouthing off about spurs calling them bargain basement hunters, I think she's jealous we strengthened again yesterday with serge aurier and Fernando llorente and gomes wanted to join spurs instead of bottom of the league west ham. Mrs. Brady when your club gets into the champions league it's easier to sign top players you should try it one day. Has for bargain hunters didn't she get the Daley Thompson stadium for free from the taxpayers due to her being in government beep beep beep.

Grow up Raver

Whats has the Stadium got to do with it, sounds like the green eyed monster has ventured into you thoughts

If you want to blame anyone blame who ever negotiated on behalf of the council not WH,

Enjoy the Champions League, and make the most of it you won't be there for a long while after this season.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 13:38:05
Raver the reports from Spain state that Gomes wanted to join us rather than Spurs. But you are right you have added well to your squad. However be wary of the curse of the new stadium. You could well find yourself suffering like we did last year as it's a huge adjustment playing in s new stadium even if yours is in the same place. As for getting it for free I can't think of any club that would turn it down. After all, you tried hard enough to get it. As for bargain hunters yes we probably are but then again we didn't waste £85 million on players like Spurs did when they sold Bale.
We will probably never be at the same level you are. Then again you will always only ever be in the shadow of Arsenal so it's all relative.

3.) 01 Sep 2017 16:06:40
Fully agree with you fluke, we will struggle at the new stadium and definitely wasted the bale money, I agree about having a stadium for free no club would turn it down. I also think your owners have mugged you fans off by promising top players etc and then going cheap. I've said for a few years west ham are only a decent owner from being a powerhouse in the league.

4.) 01 Sep 2017 20:50:58
You are absolutely right Raver, we have been sold lie after lie. We have been completely mugged off. Personally I would have preferred to stay at Upton Park and maybe had a cup run every few years and the odd Europa run. It may lack ambition but I liked the size of club we were. Its what I was brought up with. i'm struggling with what we are now. This isn't the West Ham I know. To be honest we are used to tight owners but we knew they were tight, they told us we were tight and had no money to spend. These clowns promise the world and deliver nothing close to it. Some fans won't like it but maybe we should look across North London and take a few lessons from yourselves in how to run a football club.



05 May 2017 11:07:38
I'm think tonight's match is real toughie, you boys will up your game big time to beat spurs and like nothing more than stopping us. One spurs fan below said we will win by 4 must be taking stronger drugs than me, it will be 2-1 to to either side for me.

the raver

1.) 05 May 2017 15:16:46
Thats a fair realistic comment raver, on paper and past form you should win at a canter, but its football and London derby, Although Swansea need to win all of the last 3 games and for us to lose all three ( goal difference is 14 in West ham favour) for us to be right in trouble, I think we will be very tight at the back, we have done well defensively in our last few games and Spurs will need to work hard to break us down, saying that Spurs at the moment seem to going through defences like no ones business

If Spurs don't get the 3 points tonight than that's the title race over. will nerves set in and will they try to hard?



06 Mar 2017 21:43:03
What a powder puff performance from West ham, a big London derby and you fail to turn up again. I remember watching Arsenal play there and it was so easy, I hope you play like that when spurs turn up as the score will be embarrassing, I think if you finish in the top half of the table it will be a travesty as I think you are one of the poorest sides in the league.

the raver

1.) 07 Mar 2017 13:54:02
You are stark raver mad. How a sad little spud can watch and post on a hammers page shows how insecure you lot are. West Ham huffed and puffed but were beaten by the better team end of. Why don't you go back to your half empty glass and carry on supporting the bottlers whilst I keep drinking out of my half full glass. Just sit and watch the gooners finish above you again. Fact.

2.) 07 Mar 2017 17:13:47
Supporting bottlers lol we are a champions league club, something your club will never play as your aim is to stay in the league every year. Obviously I was watching the west ham game last night as my team spurs are the only challengers they have for the LEAGUE title something your club have never will challenge. We are playing in the quarter finals of the FA cup this weekend, who are West ham playing Corby beep beep mind that huge gap.

3.) 07 Mar 2017 19:20:51
How pathetic have you got to be to sign up on the site of 1 your rivals just to troll. I can't wait until Kane and Alli see your club for what it really is, absolute bottle jobs. The difference is we don't claim to be world class, we're quite content to just watch good football and see the team put in a shift. You lot really think your world beaters when in fact your nothing and your dismal exit from the Champions League proved that. I really don't care if you go on to win the league and FA Cup I won't lose any sleep. Let's be honest though you won't be lifting any trophies this year pal.

4.) 07 Mar 2017 19:25:56
Making up the numbers until you bottle it again. When you have won something spending all your million come back and I will be the first to congratulate you, until then keep your armchair warm.

5.) 10 Mar 2017 13:41:00
Bang on strappy couldn't agree more they are supposed to be winning trophys every year and been coming up empty for a few years now we've never pretended to be a top club and Chelsea are far and away the best team in the country at the moment and for me have the best manager in the world so if the raver thought there was any chance of anybody catching Chelsea then he must be taking illegal substances just sounds like sour grapes to me strappy.



03 Dec 2016 19:38:33
Iron mike I was hoping west ham would turn over the gooners for the raver, but your boys looked absolutely awful and I think you are definitely in a relegation battle. I think Arsenal should have put at least 7or 8 on you today and I think its time bilic was shown the door as he's taking you down.

We will be playing for 4th place mike, we are punching well above our weight in our spending and club wages compared to man Utd, man city, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Mike I have a lot of time for you mate, the problem lies with your club is the owners who are holding you back big time. Everything is in place for west ham a new ground and a massive fan base in the biggest city in Europe and you have three skinflints looking to buy cheap all of the time.

Whufc apart from the Barnsley match we had 80 thousand for Chelsea and 60 plus for Swansea and Burnley hardly poor crowds. I still think you'll win your cup final on Saturday 2-1 as you up your game for spurs.
