November 7th, 2009 by mightyhammer

10 man Aston Villa couldn’t quite hold on against a West Ham side with problems of their own. Both Carlton Cole and Herita Ilunga had to be subbed off during the first half because of injury. After these setbacks, it just got better and better for Zola and his men. A Mark Noble penalty was [...]

West Ham and Zola need to get tough!

November 3rd, 2009 by mightyhammer

Yes, I’m back! However, it is unfortunate that my team seem to have moved backwards in the world of football. Gaining 7 points and sitting in 19th position so far is not the best position. Thank God that I have been stuck at school and only been able to go to one match so far. Luckily [...]

West Ham XI vs Bishops Stortford

August 8th, 2009 by mightyhammer

This game was an annual encounter between the two sides. Woodside Park, the home of Bishops Stortford FC, serves as the West Ham reserves home ground. It seemed that Alex Dyer the reserve team coach wanted to keep this allegiance with his squad that he put in front of the Conference South team. A ten-man [...]

New West Ham home kit – 09/10

July 31st, 2009 by mightyhammer

So, it has arrived and funnily enough it is a terrible shirt with a terrible design. There is retro and then there is old-fashioned, this is definitely in the old-fashioned category.

Whilst the away kit has grown on me, I don’t think that this ghastly thing will. Unfortunately for Ray Winston he was chosen to model [...]

West Ham v Grays Athletic – Pre-Season Friendly

July 22nd, 2009 by mightyhammer

Gianfranco put out a young and inexperienced side against Grays Athletic but the team managed to complete a comfortable 2-1 win against the local side. Zola used 22 players in all throughout the match with Julien Faubert and Kieron Dyer catching the eye. However this was a day for the youngsters, with academy products Zavon [...]

West Ham – Away Kit 09/10

June 19th, 2009 by mightyhammer

So, it has been revealed and is on sale, but what do I think about the new West Ham away kit. As with tradition it is a dark colour as last years was the lighter blue, so they have made this one navy blue. The stripe down the middle adds something “special” to the shirt [...]

West Ham Takeover: Is it a good thing or a great thing?

June 15th, 2009 by mightyhammer

What does it mean?
Firstly the takeover means that West Ham United have hopefully left all the financial trouble behind and can start to rebuild again. It also means that West Ham can move forward with a clear conscience and the team can hopefully be strengthened by the new owners. But this is where the problem lies. [...]
