West Ham's Top Five Most Controversial Signings Over the Last Decade

From Dimitri Payet to the double signing of Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez, West Ham United have had some highly controversial, to say the least signings throughout their history. And now with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan in charge and with the move from Upton Park to a new 60,000 London Stadium, it seems the club will look to bring in many more big names in future, which of course means sometimes, with big named players they come with a huge …

Mesut Ozil vs Dimitri Payet - A statistical comparison

Dimitri Payet and Mesut Ozil are both excellent midfielders, who are key players for West Ham and Arsenal respectively. However, there has been a lot of debate, mainly on social media, about who is better out of the two. The latter has played for two of the biggest clubs in the world and has a World Cup to his name. Whereas Dimitri Payet plays for a mid-table Premier League side and has never lifted a major trophy. Based on this, …
West Ham’s Abysmal Start

West Ham’s Abysmal Start

When West Ham United finished seventh in the English Premier League last season, improving by five positions, the effusive season reviews (example) they received were completely justified. Not only had they beaten Liverpool (Home & Away), Manchester City and Arsenal (Away), Chelsea and Manchester United (Home), but also qualified for Europa League because of their league position, and they were moving to a new, bigger stadium. Although that move could have jinxed the team’s fortunes, if you were a West …

What is going wrong for West Ham?

As things stand, it would be fair to say that West Ham are falling apart in disappointing fashion under Slaven Bilic. Currently as low as 18th in the Premier League with just three points in the bag from five games, West Ham's plans to start the season on a high have already been blown up in smoke, especially after being knocked out of the Europa League by Astra Giurgiu in the first knockout round of the tournament and following the pathetic …

France v Rep. Ireland Preview - Payet the key for France

Euro 2016 has not exactly been an enthralling classic thus far, but the group stages can be less than inspiring. The knockout stages are where tournaments usually start to hot up, where it’s all or nothing and even a drab draw holds the prospect of a penalty shoot-out. Hosts and Group A winners France take on Republic of Ireland, who finished third in Group E, in what is not expected to be a classic, but could very well turn out …
Will this season be the Battle of the Bosses?

Will this season be the Battle of the Bosses?

It didn’t take long before there were speculations and opinions flying around like wildfire as soon as the EPL fixtures were announced. Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger were all thrown into the spotlight and took up centre-stage. In fact, unlike most times, this time the entire focus appeared to be on these managers – the changes they’ll make, possible tactics, changes, basically anything that seemed argumentative in the least.
