Hammers Ship Goals But Beat Thurrock

 The West Ham United XI side were given a tough test at Thurrock last night, eventually coming through it 3-2. Reserve team manager Alex Dyer took a youthful squad to Ship Lane, including new boy Frank Nouble and trialists Sebastian Huke ( a German youth international) and Simone Bezzicherri. And interestingly Andrea Zola, son of boss Gianfranco, was also given 45 minutes in which to ....

West Ham Start With Victory

West Ham United had a winning start at the New Recreation Ground as they edged out Grays Athletic 2-1 in their first pre-season friendly of the new campaign. 3169 supporters received great value for money in the July sunshine as Gianfranco Zola gave all 22 players in the matchday squad a run out against a rebuilding Grays team.  West Ham were a class apart with former England midfielder ....

Bel's Ringing For Hammers At Christmas

West Ham are up to 12th after a terrific come-from-behind win at fellow 'crisis club' Pompey. Up against another club whose financial future is uncertain to say the least, the Hammers were behind on eight minutes as Glen Little’s cross reached Peter Crouch at the far post and he controlled it and laid it back for Nadir Belhadj to crash home a low shot from 10 yards. It was all-square when ....

Hammers Happy With Anfield Point

West Ham became the third team to hold Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield - and they might even have come away with a surprise victory. Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt and Sami Hyypia all went close over 90 minutes but Gianfranco Zola's side achieved their third clean sheet in a row to frustrate the Reds. Rob Green was in fine form in the West Ham goal. but the home side lacked creativity and ....

Johnson Could Have Been Shown Three Yellow Cards In Hammers Win

Well, the Hammers finally broke the 50-odd year hoodoo by beating Fulham today, coming away from Craven Cottage with all three points for first time since free love reigned. We were certainly among the minority in the stands, but the one thing we did learn: Matthew Etherington is a player that likes to be wound up. // --> // --> // --> // --> Paul Konchesky, who ....

Was Michael Owen Cheating?

Woohoo! Our supercomputer was nearly spot on for the first time in its history...and Harry hasn't got a leg to stand on. You might have noticed we predicted a 3-0 win, and it ended up 3-1. That's a one goal difference. // --> // --> // --> // --> But, nobody noticed Michael Owen CHEATED when he scored. He was clearly thinking about what he was having for dinner ....

Hammers Soft Underbelly Needs To Shape Up Under Zola

I simply don't believe it. 2-3? To West Brom? Why is always me who has to be the bearer of bad tidings on this site? Poor old Gianfranco must be the first manager to see his honeymoon evaporate before he's barely got to the end of the aisle. This marriage hasn't even been consummated yet and already he's associated with this shambles. // --> // --> // --> // ....

It's Better Than Dudley Mate, That's For Sure

Typical. You just get ready write a rant about the inadequacies of Curbishley, the players, the owner, the tea lady, the bloke in front of me who keeps saying 'You think this is bad, I remember Dudley Tyler' and then West Ham go and win. And win well. 4-1 was a bit flattering. OK very flattering, but the better team won. // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // ....

West Ham Win. I Presume. But Things Are Far From Rosy

What do you know about Macclesfield. The Macc Lads? Anything else? Well. No, not really. No points. No goals and kept of the bottom of the Football League by the fact Bournemouth, Rotherham and Luton are financial basket cases. So. What's this? Extra time? Extra time! I couldn't give a stuff that we've just gone 2-1 up. Who scored? Look it up in the papers. // --> // --> // --> ....

Who Brings Carrot Sticks To A Match? Things We Realised After Game One

Right. We at UptonSparks are not going to blather on about the match, you were either there, saw it on MOTD or have read one of the millions of reviews. If you don't know (and you must be a loyal fan to come to this site first, so thanks for that. The special T-Shirt is in the post) then West Ham won 2-1 over Wigan. // --> // --> // --> // --> Ashton scored a ....

West Ham 2 Posh 0 - The Game That Changed It All

West Ham decided to win a game pre-season last night (OK, I know it hasn't been a complete wash out so far pre-season, but still) in a match that could show the rest of the Premier League last season's mid-tabel finish won't be repeated. Craig Bellamy, working back to full fitness after enduring a nightmare first season for the Hammers, scored both the goals in a 2-0 win over Peterbrough United, ....

Man United 4 West Ham 1 Was There Any Point In Turning Up?

West Ham missed the chance to completely derail Manchester United’s Premier League bid by rolling over and offering no opposition at Old Trafford.   Apart from a spectacular Dean Ashton overhead kick wonder goal that might have even made people in Bolivia weep, despite having no knowledge of it, West Ham might as well have been playing in strips made of dustbin lids.   A brace ....

Nani's Italian Influence Hitting Already?

Although I’m not usually one to peddle rumours (OK, I am, but only if they’re officially titled as such), sources in Italy are linking West Ham with a move for rising star Marco Borrellio, who has had a stellar season for Genoa in Serie A this season, where he is currently top scorer.   The figure mooted is around £18 million, which is around the price you’d expect for a striker having notched 19 goals this term, and is wanted back by AC Milan.   The ....

Alan Tells The Fans To Get Real

Alan Curbishley has asked the Hammers’ fans to be more ‘realistic’ about what the side can achieve this year, after hearing boos ringing out around the ground despite winning against basement club Derby. ‘After losing our last three games it was important that we bounced back. I would like to call for a bit of appreciation and realism. There is a great lack of appreciation of what we have done this season,’ he said. ‘We have managed to keep away from the ....

Curbs Sails Close To The Wind

He may have made the inspired substitution to win the game, but Hammers boss Alan Curbishley came far too close to comfort to being hung out to dry by a team looking to become the worst in Premier League history. Despite dominating for much of the first half, West Ham only managed to come in at half time with a 1-0 lead. The talk before the game was the tale of the fight – who actually had the love of the shirt, and who was merely counting the hours until the end of the ....

At Least It Was A Decent Match...

Some West Ham fans could be forgiven for yawning once or twice when watching their team these days. The team is constantly is crippled by injuries, and those that do turn out seem to be more interested in what they might be having for tea rather than playing some decent football.Well, at least by today’s standards, they appear to have decided to have sausage and mash in advance, as, despite going down to a Kevin Davies goal at The Reebok , the team at least seemed to fire into life on one ....

Why Bother West Ham?

West Ham’s season is on the verge of fizzling out after a 1-0 defeat to the hands of Portsmouth at Upton Park. Nico Kranjcar’s 61st minute strike was enough to ensure the visitors went home with all three points, and the Hammers will now be looking over their shoulders as both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle seem intent on clawing their way into the top three. Playing a Pompey side still clearly suffering from a Wembley hangover, West Ham will be cursing their luck that they ....
