Nikola Jurcevic Becomes Slaven's Assistant Manager Again!

Slaven Billic has finally recruited the last of his West Ham back room staff with the appointment of Nikola Jurcevic as his assistant manager joining first team coach Edin Terzic, head of performance Miljenko Rak, goalkeeping coach Chris Woods and coaching assistant Julian Dicks. Jurcevic and Billic worked together at Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas as well as with the Croatian national side.

Sullivan And Billic Decided Moses Was A Better Option Than Adebayour

There was much media coverage as to whether Emmanuel Adebayour would join West Ham United from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day, but now it transpires that Slaven Billic elected to splash the cash on Victor Moses on loan from Chelsea FC instead.

Ex Hammers Both Score, Jarvis On His Debut

Wouldn't you adam and eve it! Matt Jarvis, massively over priced winger arrived from Wolves on big money, for big money, and did relatively bugger all while at the Boleyn. As soon as Jarvis moves on loan to Norwich, he manages to achieve that 'hen's teeth' moment and actually score a goal! The other over priced import who has left the Boleyn having expensively arrived from Liverpool, Stewart Downing, scored for Championship club Middlesborough.

Amalfitano To Be Farmed Out To Tractor Boys

Morgan Amalfitano looks as if he will be the first of several West Ham United players to be sent out on loan now the 'emergency' transfer window is open. During the window, players may be loaned from the Barclays Premier League to lower league clubs for up to three months. Championship team Ipswich Town have expressed an interest in taking Amalfitano, who has fallen out massively with Hammers manager Slaven Billic and has been banished to train away from the first team.

Billic Now The Real Work Begins

Any Hammers fan who was at the Boleyn the evening Slaven Billic was presented to the crowd before the FC Lusitans Euro Championship game, will tell you the atmosphere was electric and that the fans 'took' to their new manager in a way they could never have with Sam Allardyce. Billic looks right and sounds right, and away from home his teams perform a bit more than right! Any incoming manager needs the crowd behind him, and Billic has that, he also needed the co-owners to back him in the transfer market, and to all intents and purposes they have done that and more some.

Michail Antonio Joins The Billic Revolution

Many Hammers fans were voicing their discontent at the club's lack of ambition in the transfer market, but the two Davids and madam K have done the business, so a fair amount of humble pie should be on the menu tonight! Alex song, Carl Jenkinson and Victor moses are all only loanees, but Michail Antonio is a full on four year signing and will bring pace and power to Billic's side. Some may be underwhelmed by the addition of Jelavic from Hull as a striker option, but realistically he has been signed on a two year deal as back up to the much injured Andy Carroll.

Holy Moses Give Us A Song, We're Running Out Of Loans!

After a series of protracted medicals and complex loan negotiations, despite being injured, Alex Song has returned to the Boleyn from parent club FC Barcelona, the midfielder's arrival uses up one of the loan berths available to West Ham United under the transfer system, Carl Jenkinson has already been signed on loan from Arsenal for another season. Hot on Song's heels is the impending arrival of another loanee ,Victor Moses, from Chelsea who is apparently under going a medical this morning with a view to joining Slaven's away day wonders.

Call It The Games Gone Crazy But Hammers Might Be Back In For Austin

Being based in South West/ West London, we are privy to at least a couple of old pals at the Bush, and according to a very reliable source Hammers have made a speculative £12 Million bid for Charlie Austin, with Matt Jarvis acting as a £4 Million make weight (which would represent a £6 Million loss), bringing the transaction to £16 Million valuation, thus triggering the pre requisite figure that QPR had set on any transfer.

What Is It With Hammers And Expensive Wingers? Could This One Work?

West Ham have apparently agreed a deal to take winger Michail Antonio, who is currently undergoing a medical, from Nottingham Forest, for a fee believed to be around £6 Million, but with add ons that could push the eventual price up to an eye watering £8 Million, for a Championship player! The last time West Ham United forked out a similar sum for a Championship player was to buy winger Matt Jarvis from Wolves, which has not turned out to have been the best of deals by anyone's imagination.
