What a good news day it has been.Â First it was the momentous decision by the American public to elect the nation’s first ever president who is a West Ham supporter, and then I read this: Sky and Virgin Media have settled their differences and from next week Sky One, Sky News and other channels […]

I really don’t know why I let myself get my hopes up with West Ham because they always do it: tease you with the chance of something good and then slip up.Â This week we could have gone from 5th to 3rd if we had won, and we were going into a home game against […]

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, […]
There are many reasons why I would like to see Barack Obama win the US presidential election this year, but this one really stands out: who would have thought that Obama follows the Irons?

So… Â Kevin Keegan has quit Newcastle, just a day after Alan Curbishley quit the Hammers. Â It looks like they both went for more or less the same reason: they have the traditional view of a club manager being in charge of everything but their clubs are going with the continental system of having directors of […]

One downside of going out today was that I did not get to see the football results until way after the final whistle, and missed seeing the highlights on Match of the Day, on the day that the Hammers finally came up with a decent result in the league and annihilated Paul Ince’s Blackburn Rovers.

August 16th – West Ham v. Wigan.Â An interesting start to the season.Â So far there have been no eye-catching new signings, just an Icelandic defender, but if half our invalids are fit for this year it will be like having a whole new team anyway. One the other hand, we have lost Zamora and […]
