West Ham | February Turnaround At Upton Park

West Ham | February Turnaround At Upton Park

A month ago, West Ham fell into the relegation zone after a very poor showing against Newcastle in a 3-1 defeat at Upton Park. Many fans wanted to see Sam Allardyce lose his job after being embarrassed in both cup competitions and the Hammers looked like they were falling quickly into the Championship. He maintained that the club would survive once injured players returned to fitness, but this was ridiculed by many supporters who saw it as an excuse. Now, …
Who Should Go To The World Cup? Rooney, Sturridge, Lambert.. Berahino?

Who Should Go To The World Cup? Rooney, Sturridge, Lambert.. Berahino?

Roy Hodgson will have started planning his World Cup squad already and we could probably predict most of the squad if English players suffer no more serious injuries; but, there will be four or five spots up for grabs.

What Has Happened At West Ham United?

Before the season started, many considered West Ham to be a stable mid table club who wouldn't have to worry about being dragged into the relegation battle, but a misguided summer could prove very costly. They opted to spend £15m on Andy Carroll which is a lot of money for a club like West Ham, but the former Liverpool striker is yet to play for them this season.

West Ham United - 8 Game Review | Stats Analysis

The season started well for the Hammers with 4 points out of 6, a victory against newly promoted Cardiff and a draw at Newcastle. Considering the injury to Andy Carroll, that start gave West Ham hope that they could take advantage of a kind opening 6 games on paper and get some early points on the board. The reality however was a little different with a 0-1 defeat at home Stoke followed by a 0-0 draw at Southampton which saw …

The Return of Carlton Cole | Stats from 08/09 and 09/10

On the 22nd May of this year, it was announced that Carlton Cole would be released by West Ham in the summer. The striker reacted by tweeting “life is filled with ups and downs - today is a down, but I’ll be back” - a conventional footballer response to being released – not a claim that Cole expected to be at West Ham, let alone 5 months later. With Andy Carroll scuppering to another injury that will rule him out …

How Have English Strikers Started In World Cup Year? Sturridge, Welbeck, Defoe & Lambert

Roy Hodgson doesn't currently have a great idea about which strikers he will take to Brazil if England qualify for the World Cup next year. This gives a great platform for all English strikers to force their way into Hodgson's plans. Wayne Rooney won't be playing as an out and out striker for Manchester United this season, which means a starting position will open up in the National team with Rooney dropping back to the number ten role. The main …
