‘Get out the club’ – Plenty of West Ham fans have a strong message for this fringe man

By Ally Darlow As reported by footballtransfertavern.com West Ham are a club on the rise at the moment. The Hammers have bagged themselves three straight wins, scoring three goals in all of those as they’ve beaten Newcastle, Brighton and Crystal Palace. However, despite the great mood at the London Stadium, after Andy Carroll’s comments about having 60,000 fans in the stadium, a lot of those fans have been slating the big man. AC thinks having 60,000 fans in London Stadium would be incredible. pic.twitter.com/MdpSClVw8d — West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) December 9, 2018 Through no fault of his own, Andy Carroll is an extremely injury prone striker. The England man, much like many other unfortunate footballers, is made of glass at times. The 29-year-old has missed 12 Premier League games through injury this season alone, and last season saw him miss an incredible 17 games in all competitions, so you can see why the fans aren’t too keen on having him around. Then there’s the fact that Carroll is on a reported £80,000 per week, something that the fans hate the idea of considering they’re paying him to receive treatment on whatever injury he’s suffering with at the time. His comments about the fans are …read more

An ode to the resurgence of Robert Snodgrass at West Ham

By Planet Football First published by football365.com In Depth During the two windows either side of Robert Snodgrass’ arrival at West Ham United, the club seemed intent on making statement signings. In the summer of 2016, a dozen new players arrived – headlined by record signing André Ayew and high-profile loanee Simone Zaza – ahead of what the club hoped would be a proper European campaign. The following year it was time for the club to add experienced Premier League quality to their ranks, with Marko Arnautović and Joe Hart among the players introduced as part of what looked like a more focused transfer strategy. The January in between, though, was neither one thing or the other. Snodgrass was one of three men brought in, and it looked for a while as if none of the trio would hit the heights expected of them. There’s still time for Nathan Holland, the youngster signed from Everton who view original post here The post An ode to the resurgence of Robert Snodgrass at West Ham appeared first on sportsdroid. …read more

Bye bye Cresswell: West Ham should shock PL rivals by moving for left back with 16 Prem goals

By Ben Goodwin As reported by footballfancast.com West Ham are crying out for a left back with the quality and defensive solidity to compliment the ever-improving Felipe Anderson, and they should shock fans by moving for Patrick van Aanholt. What’s the word? The left back position has become the biggest question mark in Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham, team, as neither of Arthur Masuaku or Aaron Cresswell have really made the spot their own. The Hammers are looking better every week going forward, but they are still vulnerable at the back, and that is due mainly to both Cresswell and Masuaku being poor defensively. Van Aanholt offers just as much if not more than the pair in the attacking third, but has also proven during his time at Crystal Palace that he is an extremely solid defender as well. Why do they need him? The first requirement for a Pellegrini full back is quality in the final third, something that Pablo Zabaleta has shown consistently for years. Van Aanholt could be the perfect compliment to the ageing Argentinian on the other flank, and his pace and vision will cause nightmares for opposing teams alongside summer signing Anderson.

Where will West Ham’s injury list fit back into the squad upon return?

By Scott Johnson First published by greenstreethammers.com Fulham are there for the taking, and West Ham must keep focus by Scott Johnson West Ham have a number of key players currently out injured. With the good form of the team, where can we expect these players to return to in the squad? When you have a team in your head then have to change it due to injury, it’s never great. West Ham are constantly having to chop and change due to persistent injury issues in recent seasons, and usually it impacts upon the form of the side and the way we play. With 9 goals in 3 games and our best striker injured, things are beginning to change. However it’s a fair question to ask how we will be fitting those players in when they return. If we continue on our winning ways do the previously un-droppable players make it back in? Or do they have to work their way back through spells on the bench and in the reserves?

Spurs midfielder on Hammers radar

By ClubCall As published by clubcall.co.uk West Ham are being linked with a swoop for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama in the January transfer window. Wanyama’s time with Spurs looks to be over as he struggles for regular action and reports are rife suggesting that Manuel Pellegrini wants him on board at the London Stadium. Another midfielder is required after Carlos Sanchez was ruled out for the remainder of the season with a serious knee injury, and Wanyama could be his replacement. The Kenyan midfielder is a proven Premier League performer and would no doubt jump at the chance to make the short switch to the Hammers, if Pellegrini stepped up his interest. The arrival of Wanyama could spell the end of Sanchez’s time with West Ham though, as it is claimed he is set for a sharp exit from the club once he is back fit. Sanchez only signed from Lazio in the summer and a return to Italy has been mooted. The post Spurs midfielder on Hammers radar appeared first on ClubCall.com.

Reece Oxford left heartbroken after treasured watch stolen at West Ham training ground

By John Cross as reported by mirror.co.uk. West Ham youngster Reece Oxford has been left heartbroken after a treasured watch was stolen from the club’s changing rooms. It has left the Oxford camp convinced that it is part of a plot to force the 19-year-old out of the club, having already been told he has no future at West Ham. West Ham have launched their own investigation and the police have been called in after the watch given to Oxford by his mother as an 18th birthday present was stolen last Friday. West Ham have issued a statement: “The Club is aware of an allegation of theft at our Academy headquarters in Chadwell Heath. We are treating the matter extremely seriously in line with internal protocol and co-operating fully with a Police investigation.” But there was no sign of a forced entry and it is believed the watch was taken while all of the academy players were out training and no players were in the changing rooms.

West Ham in race for £20m Nantes hotshot Emiliano Sala with Crystal Palace & Fulham

By Sam Inkersole Reported by football.london West Ham are going to have to fight off strong competition from Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Fulham for Nantes striker Emiliano Sala in January if they wish to sign the player, according to France Football . They claim that it is the Bluebirds, who West Ham beat 3-1 last week at the London Stadium and certainly looked desperate for a new frontman, that are in pole position to sign the Argentinian. Sala has banged n 12 goals in Ligue 1 so far this season for Nantes and tops the goalscoring charts alongside PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe. The Nantes hotshot has struck 12 goals so far this season at a rate of one goal every 92 minutes of action which is better than Neymar, who has scored 11 goals so far this season for the runaway French league leaders. Read More Sala has a reported £15-£20m price tag on his head and with his contract up at the end of the 2019/2020 season, Nantes may be keen to cash in now before his value inevitably drops the further his contract reaches its conclusion.

One year on, West Ham United ace is making Sullivan eat his words

By Olly Dawes As published by hitc.com, Robert Snodgrass has turned his West Ham United career around. One of the great surprises of West Ham United’s season has been the form of winger Robert Snodgrass, making a mockery of comments made about him this time last year. The Scot was signed by Slaven Bilic in January 2017 having starred for Hull City, but he ended up being West Ham’s replacement for Dimitri Payet – and that was never going to work. After just a matter of months at West Ham, Snodgrass was frozen out and then loaned to Aston Villa, where he impressed and almost helped them win promotion, losing to Fulham in the Championship play-off final. Few expected Snodgrass to stay at West Ham but he knuckled down and forced his way into Manuel Pellegrini’s setup, and has really kicked on in Andriy Yarmolenko’s absence down the right flank. The 31-year-old has three assists and a goal in his last three games, including a stunning equaliser in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Crystal Palace as his great form continues. <img title="West Ham United Joint Chairman David Sullivan and his son Jack Sullivan look on during the pre-season friendly match between Ipswich Town and West Ham United at …read more
