I hope not, but it is not looking good at the moment. Steve Evans is all over the local paper saying we ‘battered’ Southend, and maybe we did but we also only drew when Southend had 9 men and we had a penalty. Of course a couple of games postponed because of frozen pitches and [...]

Obviously Crawley Town are going to do well out of getting drawn against Manchester United, and the motorways going North will be full of coaches taking the home supporters up to Old Trafford from the home counties.Â Apart from the prize money for getting so far there is the cut of the gate receipts and [...]

Crawley Town’s FA Cup road might not go all the way to Wembley, but tonight they discovered that it will at least go as far as Torquay.Â Â It would have been good to get a ‘glamour’ tie against Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal or someone like that (but please not West Ham!)Â but on the other [...]

Could this be the season that all three newly-promoted Premier League teams survive?Â I know it is only early days in the season but already Hull have as many points as Derby got in the whole of last season after beating Arsenal and West Brom have managed a couple of wins to keep them in [...]

Dear Football Association,Â can we play all our games at home please?Â Love & kisses, West Ham. Early days yet, but are we going to have a ‘fortress Upton Park’ season?Â So far we have won all three home games, giving the Hammers the best home record in the league.Â At the same time we [...]

Strange times in the football leagues at the moment. Â I took advantage of having Setanta yesterday and subjected myself to their overwhelming yellowness to watch Man City and Chelsea, where City found that having billions of pounds behind them is not going to immediately propel them into the top four of Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and, [...]
For the last couple of days there has been a group of caravans parked up in the big layby outside the Broadfield Stadium.Â Is this the group of travellers who have been in town for several weeks now, setting up home in Maidenbower, Three Bridges, Furnace Green, Southgate, etc.? No.Â I think they are visiting [...]
Crawley Town are apparently on the TV for a second time this week, when Ebbsfleet visit the Broadfield Stadium on Thursday evening.Â They were on Setanta Sunday night, playing Forest Green.Â That was a bit of a disappointment though – the previous two games were wins of 8-0 and 4-0 and then when they played [...]
Well… I was hoping for at least three points for the Hammers over the holidays and already they have four. I didn’t dare hope for a home win against Man Utd., but that’s what we got.
What is going on? Next week a Spurs XI are coming down to play Crawley Town. Its unlikely that we will see Defoe, Bent or Berbatov down the Broadfield stadium but the team is supposed to contain a lot of first team players who aren’t getting much real action. In other words, its a pre-season [...]
