The perfect Hart beat for West Ham’s backline

Joe Hart must be wondering what the future holds for him and more importantly where did it all go wrong.

West Ham need to show trust in young players

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.
