Ferdinand Deal Now More Likely

West Ham. They've only gone and confirmed they've had a bid for Anton 'cockney sparra' Ferdinand. Oh. And shock of shocks, it's from Sunderland, so the rumours are true, and once a bid comes in, it's often a matter of time before it's accepted. // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> Oh...it has been. And you know what else? It's ....

West Ham Have An 87% Chance Of Drawing 1-1 With Wigan

Well, here we go again, another season, another preview. Let's be honest, you're probably the same as us and have checked every preview already published (ours is late because, erm, well, we were down the pub. And we're not even sorry). // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> So you know who is injured for the Hammers (Craig Bellamy (hamstring), Kieron ....

Hammers Back In For Sergio Garcia?

Right, now bear with me on this one. It's from the Spanish site elperiodicodearagon.com (a fantastic read on a rainy afternoon) but it states winger / striker Sergio Garcia may be considering a move to West Ham.The Hammers have enquired about the player before, but he turned the move down, stating he wanted to remain in the country. // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // ....

Collins Off To West Brom

The Wests (not the burying people kind) of Brom and Ham have opened talks over the transfer of James Collins. Apparently the West Midlanders, who ALREADY have signed a centre half in the shape of Abdoulaye Meite from Bolton form Bolton, want ANOTHER defender, and won't admit to being greedy. // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // --> // ....

Green Wants To Make A Good Fist

Robert Green, the West Ham Goalkeeper we all know and love who gets paid nothing, has been chatting on the official website about IMPORTANT THINGS! That's right, you know it's a slow news day when nobody is signing for the Hammers and the website brings out a rent-a-quote to make other sites report on their article...dammit, look what we've done... // --> // --> // --> // ....

Ferdinand Heading Out Of Upton Park

Anton Ferdinand looks set to be leaving the Hammers after turning down a bumper new pay deal. Despite being offered terms three times the amount he is currently earning (which is unlikely to be that low, bearing in mind Robert Green, on £20,000 a week reportedly, said he was the lowest paid first teamer), Ferdinand has turned down the offer. // --> // --> // --> // ....

Hammers Want Has-been International?

Admittedly this is coming from the Sun, but apparently West Ham are 'battling' Newcastle and Bolton for the signature of former Spain international Diego Tristan. Forgive us here at Upton Sparks for being a bit suspicious of this one, but why would three Premier League clubs be battling it out for a washed out front man? Pedigree, chum! // --> // --> // --> // ....

Capello Says Ashton Is Too Fat For England

Fabio Capello. You might be Italian, and as such, might be happy to only look at super-thin supermodels. But getting on the Dean Ashton pie-consumption bandwagon isn't going to help. The England boss has said he spoke to Ashton before the Trinidad and Tobago game, and he asked the striker to shed a few pounds. 'We followed Dean in a lot of games last season and he was very good but he had ....

Will Fans Influence Curbs' Choice?

  // --> West Ham's decision to trial former Milwall player Ben Thatcher led to a good number of jeers when he turned out the other day, and now Alan Curbishley is having a think about whether to sign him. “I didn’t quite understand it,” he said. “I don’t think George will be too far away so we’re looking for some experienced cover and we took the ....

West Ham To Lose Out On Givet

Gael Givet looks likely to shun a move to East London after Panathinaikos made an official offer for the stopper. Believed to be in the region of £1.75m, the Greek club can offer Givet UEFA Cup football this year, and has a pedigree of wandering around the group stages of the Champion's League once in a while too. // --> // --> // --> // --> However, could ....

Hammers In For Appiah

West Ham are reported to be keeping tabs on Stephen Appiah - you know, that Ghanain that used to be really good. He used to play for Juventus? West Ham have been keen on him before? You know the one. He would be decent cover for Kieron Dyer, and with Freddie Ljungberg gone, well, you never know, these things could happen. His current side, Fenerbahce, are willing to cash in on the star who ....

Curbs Doesn't Want You To Read This Article

Alan Curbishley has said Robert Green England chances might be helped with a bit of a makeover (albeit somewhat tongue in cheek), after reports he was unhappy the way Green spoke out last month against his contract: // --> // --> "We rate Greeny highly and nobody has been pushing him more with (England coach) Fabio Capello than me.

West Ham In For Berner

Despite the two division gap between the two clubs, Sky Sports is reporting the Swiss international could be interested in signing with the club that took his international compatriot Velon Behrami. Berner, 30, has recently ....

Tottenham Break Bank To Sign Ashton?

According to the Daily Express, which is in itself a dangerous way to start any article, Spurs are ready to up their offer for striker Dean Ashton to £20 million. Given that Robbie Keane has left for a similar sum and Berbatov is set to leave for even more, the strike force at the (other) London club looks barer than the West Ham wage bills emergency fund. So the idea such a bid would be ....

Police Call For Witnesses After Bellamy-gate

Suffolk Constabulary have not received any complaints over the Bellamy incident against Ipswich last night. The police haven't singled out Bellamy's alleged verbal altercation as the reason, but seeing as not much else happened that day, it seems fairly easy to reason they're covering their bases. "No formal complaints have been received by either Suffolk Police or Ipswich Town," said a ....

West Ham's Okirie In International Torment

West Ham's suddenly Nigerian striker Carlton Cole Okirie (which is actually his full name) has been called up to his now national team squad: only to find he can't play. Cole, or Okirie as we shall now forever call him since he defected to another country in a 'Quashie' moment (the England-B player who suddenly realised he was actually Scottish the whole time), was called up to the 'new ....

Saha Linked With Hammers Move?

Manchester United striker Louis Saha is being linked with a move to West Ham after his 'dream move' to Paris Saint Germain looks like falling apart. The French club are now pursuing Mateja Kezman of Fenerbahce, leaving the way clear for Hammers to move in and clinch his signing. The Hammers only have the four strikers...but Freddie Sears will probably need another season before being properly ....

Ferrari Still Coming?

Now, we at UptonSparks have made our feelings known about the rumour mill: we don't like it a lot as it's confusing. But every so often we have a hunch, and that's why we think Matteo Ferrari might be coming to the Boleyn Ground. According to the Fiorentina News in Italy, the player is unsettled after not getting a move to Inter, and is demanding a move from Florence. In fact, here's what ....

Zamora Apparently Doesn't Care About His New Club

Bobby Zamora, the player some of you may remember as a West Ham striker just a few weeks ago, has spoken out against his former club...again. One gets the feeling he's not really that bothered about joining Fulham, given that he's pretty much said he loves the club he's left so much he was considering sitting under a bridge on a regular basis scaring billy goats. Not that we're comparing Zamora ....

Hammer Chase Former Inter Striker

West Ham are reportedly in for former Internazionale striker Mauricio Pinilla. The Chilean striker has been linked with West Ham after being released by Hearts at the end of last season, after being given very little chance to show his worth thanks to being constantly hurt by injuries and niggles and an unconfirmed, and pretty much made up, addiction to cheesy Wotsits. Pinilla is also ....

Hammer-tastic Xiv - Pinilla, Cisse And Benayoun

Hola, Ciao, Bonjour, Guten Tag and Hello to you all. It's been a while since we did a bit of a round up, but to be honest we couldn't be bothered. It's close season, and there are other things we could be doing. And one of them was NOT being made to put up and varnish a shed that we don't even get to sit in and chill out because we need 'somewhere to put the chairs'. You know a good place to ....

Curbs Says Money Is Not An Issue

Woohoo to the Curbs...well, you've got to start on a positive note, the man has been the subject of some real criticism over the past few weeks. He's the one that we all adore (sort of), the one that leaves us asking for more (goals...points...interest, whatever), he's the Cuuuuurrrrrrbishleeeeeeyyyyy. Anyway, the man who goes to sleep having a little think about what will happen to West Ham ....

'new' Keeper Seems Hardly Worth Having

West Ham's newest 'signing' Jan Lastuvka (we're loathe to say he's actually joined, as apparently he's now having a medical and if they find something, like an alien living in his stomach, he won't be coming) will be a total understudy to Robert Green. Now, this isn't a bashing of the player: in fact, I've only ever seen him play briefly for Fulham (and that didn't really inspire any great ....
