Are you the number one Hammer?

Here at FansOnline, we like to think we’re a pretty amicable bunch. We often shoot the breeze about happier things, like West Ham staying up, or West Ham nearly winning the FA Cup, or whether the mascot is a plum. (Can you sense a theme?)

But recently, we’ve felt lonely. Like there was something missing. A car without the seatbelts. A camel without humps (which someone actually asked whether that would then be a horse. It wouldn’t).

And we debated, over the drinking of various cups of tea, what is it? What do we need to put a song to our lips when putting together this website? We have most of the main news stories covered (when we don’t all have a holiday), and we generally like to think of ourselves as one with the West Ham community.

But there’s the problem! We need you! (Imagine a big poster with a chap with a beard dressed in Hammers colours, pointing his finger).


You see, we want to know what you think. And we want to share it with the world! So, we’ll be opening up a story to you, the fans, over the coming weeks. We’ll put up a talking point, a discussionary topic, and then the floor is over to you.

All you have to do is click on the ‘Contact West Ham at FansOnline’, add your name, contact email and thoughts to the posers we…erm…pose.

We’ll publish all the good (and publishable) ones, with the best of the best commenters asked back to write a full article on the subject.

Just imagine…your mats are down to pub discussing the merits on Anton Ferdinand’s transfer wranglings, and you could just drop into the conversation: ‘Oh yeah, I wrote an article on that earlier today. Check it out at

They would probably all drop their pints in open mouthed amazements (or grunt and go ‘alright’).

So, on to today’s thinking point (and it’s a nice easy one to start with):

What do you make of the calibre of players linked with moves to / from West Ham?

This could be anything. Do you think Ferdinand should go? Was Curbs right to get rid of Solano? Was Richard Wright ever worth having, or should he move on?

The possibilities are endless. Just contact us via the form on the left, with name (or alias if you’d prefer) and we’ll publish on this site if it’s good and clean.

Simple, and we look forward to hearing from you!
