Injuries & Goals Galore As London Stadium Finally Roars!

Given that their team were 2-0 down after less than ten minutes and that their 'new' captain lasted only until the 18th minute, the crowd at West Ham's london Stadium could have been forgiven for 'doing a highbury', but the exact opposite happened. After the initial shock of going behind and losing Winston Reid the crowd suddenly found it's voice, a voice which easily drowned out the predictably boring chants from the Leicester City fans and filled the air with the sort of intimidating atmosphere not experienced during a day time match since the club left the Boleyn.

Big Andy In Shop Window As Southgate's Hand Forced

West Ham United are currently looking to recruit not one but two strikers or one of both for next season which raises questions as to whether Andy Carroll will be on his way. Reports suggest that having grown weary of signing injury prone players the Hammers hierarchy are looking to Premier League rivals Arsenal's 28-year-old Spanish forward Lucas Perez, Perez joined the Gunners last summer in a £17million switch from Spanish side Deportivo but is reported to be looking for a way out already, having failed to break into the first team at the Emirates on a regular basis.

Mr West Ham Isn't For Leaving The Hot Seat But Is It Up To Him?

Mark Noble, honest as ever, has taken to the press to give his side of the story amid the growing clamor for him to be dropped from West Ham United's starting line up. Choosing Sky Sports as one's given media platform might raise a few eyebrows, the wisdom of which may be called in to question, but obviously Slaven Billic's captain has felt the need to put his side of the situation. The fact that Mark Noble needs to 'go public' is a matter of some conjecture, however the no smoke without fire aspect is clearly apparent.

A Noble Act Of Sacrifice For The Greater Good?

No one in their right mind would deny that Mark Noble is Mr West Ham, cut him and he will bleed Claret & Blue, Canning Town born Noble is just 4 games off having completed 400 senior games for his beloved Hammers, having made his debut as a 17 year old way back in 2004. During his time at the club Mark Noble has seen the good, the bad and the ugly even having played along side Ian Dowie! So to even mention any form of criticism is viewed as 'stamping on a puppy' in some people's eyes.

Sell Out Or Sold Out Seat Mystery For Chelsea Match

A night under the lights with bubbles being sung at full chaff is a mighty experience, it stays with you all your life. Hammers move from the much beloved Boleyn Ground to the London Stadium has been fraught with problems but they seem to have been resolved more or less, and it is worth remembering that whilst the atmosphere at the Boleyn was incredible, less can be said for the 'facilities' provided for supporters which were spartan at the very least.
