Gianfranco Zola named a strong side as promised, with Jonathan Spector replacing Upson and Manuel Da Costa making his debut. Kieron Dyer started in midfield alongside Radoslav ....

A Pointless Trip To Wigan!

West Ham United came away pointless from the DW Stadium after turning in what was an out of sorts performance on Saturday. Gianfranco Zola's team selection showed four changes from the side that started, down the road at Ewood Park, a fortnight ago. Although the Hammers started brightly and could have won a penalty as early as the 6th minute when Zavon Hines appeared to be clipped on the edge of ....

Blackburn Rovers 0 West Ham United 0

  West Ham earned a point at Ewood Park yesterday in a game few will remember as a classic. Manager Gianfranco Zola opted to start the side which lost to Spurs last Sunday in a reshuffle from the Carling Cup win over Millwall, and Rovers did similarly as they gave new signing Pascal Chimbonda his debut after a move from Spurs, while Michel Salgado was on the bench. The Hammers started ....

Hammers Take London Pride After Lions Tamed

Well...what a night! Walking to Upton Park was a particularly chastening experience compared to normal as Millwall desceneded on East London. The atmosphere was not the sort you would usually expect from in and around the Boleyn Ground and instead of singing and the sense of excitement, all feeling was replaced with a somewhat nervous anticipation that only this local derby appears to ....

Spurs Earn Derby Day Victory

West Ham United experienced defeat for the first time this season in a closely fought London derby against top of the table Tottenham Hotspur at Upton Park. The North London side were victorious in a 2-1 victory that saw former Hammer Jermain Defoe continue his excellent scoring run at the Boleyn Ground. With the news of the horrific incident suffered by Calum Davenport on Friday evening, both ....

Hammers Send Wolves Packing

West Ham enjoyed another opening day success at Molineux with an accomplished 2-0 win. Mark Noble's superb 22nd minute strike took the bite out of Wolves who, up to that point, had looked the more threatening. From that point on West Ham took control of the half and could have increased their lead. Carlton Cole beat the off side trap and almost scored; Dyer failed to convert the rebound and from ....

Hammers Fail To Do Italian Job!

West Ham United lost the Bobby Moore Cup match 0 -1 to SSC Napoli at Upton Park in their final preseason friendly on Saturday. Fabio Quagliarella's looping header beat Robert Green in the 78th minute to seal the result in a match that produced a lot of good football but very few chances. The Italian side and their fan's were very aggressive considering this was a "friendly" and kept the ....

Hammers Nailed At Woodside Park

A youthful West Ham XI faltered in the club's penultimate pre-season game away at Bishops Stortford last night. A squad that contained many players hopeful of being included in Gianfranco Zola's first team squad could not break down the stubborn Blue Square South outfit. A starting eleven consisting of Zavon Hines, Frank Nouble, Savio and Josh Payne played some neat football, however as has been ....

Young Hammers Win Duel At Kingstonian

Alex Dyer's West Ham XI came through their latest pre-season test, winning 3-0 at Kingsmeadow on Friday night. The side included a mixture of youth and fringe players- Nigel Quashie and Frank Nouble among those to get a run out. This could have proved a much tougher test against last season's Ryman League Division One ( South) champions, who started brightly, with former Hammers favourite Ian ....

China Trip Not A Turkey As Hammers Break Beijing Duck

A much improved performance saw West Ham United claim third place with a 2-0 victory against hosts Beijing Guoan on Friday morning. After the disappointment of Wednesday's lethargic showing against Spurs, this was a much more encouraging performance as the Hammers increasingly showed signs of last season's form. A first half goal by the improving Kieron Dyer was ruled out for a marginal ....

Old Foe Jermain Sinks Hammers In Beijing

The opening game of the Barclay's Asia Trophy ended in double disappointment for West Ham.

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.

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.

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?

Typical.

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, ....

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 ....
