West Ham needs to play the waiting game

Slaven Bilic

West Ham see two significant striker bids rejected, prices may be an issue

West Ham linked with Wilshere, it’s not a deal they should pursue

Jack Wilshere

Last year, West Ham were incredibly active in the market …

Patience is crucial for West Ham this summer to avoid past mistakes

West Ham’s biggest moves this summer will likely be internal

Amidst all the transfer rumours that flood the back pages every day, West Ham have found themselves linked with a wide variety of signings- ranging from talented youngsters, established players who need a new venture and top-class players who are struggling at their respective sides.

Manuel Lanzini will make West Ham fans forget about Payet if they haven’t already

Dimitri Payet arrived at West Ham in the summer of 2015 on a 10.7 million pound transfer from Marseille, where he was an above average but not star player. The subsequent 12-goal season from the Frenchman returned him into to the French national team and made the 30-year old arguably the signing of the season …

Reece Oxford’s loan is extremely disappointing

On 2 July 2015 at Upton Park, Reece Oxford became West Ham’s youngest ever player when Slaven Bilic named the 16-year old in his first starting lineup in the Europa League qualifier against Andorran side Lusitanos. The English centerback started in two more qualifiers before the Premier League season was set to kick-off and he …

West Ham can finish in the top 10: This is how

West Ham had a strange season, they started off poorly then the Dimitri Payet saga masked over their season until the Frenchman forced his way out of the east London based club. A strong finish saw the hammers finish a surprising 11th place, surprising because of how bad they were at the beginning of the …

Oxford exit may be questionable but Gladbach is a good move

The perfect Hart beat for West Ham’s backline

Joe Hart

Joe Hart must be wondering what the future holds for him and more importantly where did it all go wrong. Very much England and Manchester City’s No.1 this time last year, nothing would have suggested anything other than good times ahead, before the indignity of being thrown on the scrapheap by Pep Guardiola. A move …

West Ham need to show trust in young players

Domingos Quina

West Ham’s seventh placed finish two seasons ago set expectations rather high for Slaven Bilic as he headed into his second campaign in charge. The Croatian manager achieved such success in his first campaign courtesy of Michail Antoino’s surprise goal scoring prowess and Dimitri Payet’s sudden transformation into a consistent world-class player. However, the club’s …

Traore set to give West Ham that missing ingredient

Manuel Lanzini is a prime example of David Sullivan’s club beginning …

Signing this Manchester duo would be the ideal business for West Ham

West Ham promised supporters they would be more competitive following their move to the London Stadium but the Hammers fell well short of their lofty expectations last season, fighting off relegation and finishing outside of the top-ten.
