Has Ayew Taken A Pay Cut Signing For Slaven's West Ham?

The £20 Million plus arrival of Andre Ayew on a 3 year deal at the London Stadium from Swansea has undoubtedly raised a few eyebrows, not least because the ex-team mate at Marseille of Dimitri Payet arrived at Swansea on a free transfer last summer! Fans who have been expecting a 'marquee' signing may feel slightly underwhelmed by the Ghanaian International who was born in France's arrival, they may observe he seems more of a large tent than a marquee, however as with many signings the details of the deal are rather vague.

So it came, it happened, and it passed.
No, not my morning ritual, but the OS/LS or whatever it will be called this week.
So how was it for you dear? I’m really not too sure to be honest. Maybe erring on the positive side. For now.
“Mutton dressed as lamb” I heard one comment. “Wow, un-be-lievable” was another. I guess I was somewhere in the middle. Depending on the photographic angle and agenda you were coming from, they were varying photos of the stadium that made it look either ridiculously ramshackle or stunning.

Chance For Revenge? Hammers To Face Astra Giurgiu Again!

West Ham United have been drawn against Astra Giurgiu for the final qualifying round of the Europa League Cup, the ties to be played on the 18th and 25th of August with the first leg away in Romania. Astra Giurgiu knocked West Ham out of the same competition last year, the 2nd of the ties saw Slaven Billic sent off, which is why he was unable to be on the touchline for the first match against MK Donzale, it can be safely assumed that he will have a particular interest in gaining revenge for last season's defeat and what he considered to be an unfair red card.

Confirmed West Ham United Line Up v NK Domzale

West Ham: Randolph, Antonio Oxford, Nordvelt, Reid, Byram, , Kayoute, Feghouli, Noble ( c ) Valencia, Carroll Oxford. Subs:Adrian,obiang Burke, page, , Cullen, Quina, Fletcher.Cullen

Don't Expect A Bevvy At The Match Tomorrow

Tomorrow's match is obviously a keenly anticipated event, despite the 'Sword of Damocles' 2-1 negative aggregate score against NK Domzale, defeat would see Hammers fail at their first hurdle of European footballing competition, not something the co-owners, players or fans would wish. To Thursday's game, there will be a huge amount of media attention, disproportionate to the importance of actual match itself, a loss would be damaging but not necessarily catastrophic and the match is a sell out .

Fancy Being On TV? LWT Have Asked Us To 'Org' Up!

There is plenty of interest around the Globe, and closer to home, in West Ham United's inaugural match at the London Olympic Stadium on Thursday evening, the 2nd leg of their UEFA Europa League cup tie against NK Domzale. Media coverage of the event is bound to be wide spread given the magnitude of the event and the timing being so close to the 50th anniversary of England's 1966 World Cup victory, famously engineered by the Hammer's triumvirate of Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.

Get Your Facts Right City AM!

Jealousy and inaccuracy seem to be behind the City AM article that has been published referring to possible sell on revenues of the Olympic stadium. Someone spent a lot of time adding 2+2 and getting 5! The poorly researched misinformation spouted by Frank Dalleres and Oliver Gill bears all the hallmarks of 'space filling', probably to offset the lack of a 'proper' lead story.

Worrying Times For West Ham? Striker & Defender Needed?

Ahead of the Europa Cup tie at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday, many West Ham fans are feeling less than buoyant, and in fact trepidation and anxiety seem to be the order of the day for many. Season's usually begin full of hope, but then a lack of recruitment/funding usually kicks in followed by relative mediocrity, last season was an exception, but perhaps it is the 36 years since winning a trophy or the 30 years since finishing 3rd in the top flight that fills supporters with dread!
