For Tarkowski Read Balbuena

Suggestions West Ham United will return with a substantial bid for Burnley's James Tarkowski are wide of the mark, since a purported move to the London Stadium didn't materialse during the last transfer window, the England midfielders form has dropped off a cliff. In and out of one of the Barclays Premier League's relegation candidates team, ostensibly through 'niggles' picked up in training, Tarkowski's stock has plummeted.

The long awaited return of fans to stadiums has been confirmed, albeit with a severe caveat! Fans can return to matches in extremely limited numbers after lockdown 2:0 ends on December the 2nd.

West Ham United: December Preview & Predictions

West Ham United face a hectic schedule in December as they strive to maintain a top 10 place in the Premier League this season.

Moyes To Rest Antonio For Villa-Foolish?

Having seen his team perform well, if not spectacularly, in the absence of 'star' forward Michail Antonio, Hammers manager David Moyes is only too aware that the season is not yet a quarter through, and that a long hard winter of congestive fixtures awaits.

Shades Of 86-87?

Sunday's away victory over Sheffield United was just as seminal as the 3-3 draw away to Tottenham, it showed a riseilient team that goes about it's business in a quietly confident manner. A team forged by David Moyes which is as much about his remption as it is for an underachiening squad finally being given the direction and motivation they sorely needed.

Sheffield Utd-The Blades In The Trap?

Long suffering Hammers supporters, old and young, are only too aware of their team's propensity of giving clubs below them a helping hand when it comes to 'breaking their duck', this 'act of genorosity' is usually preceeded on the back of a couple of decent results against 'top' opposition!

If football clubs are guilty of being previous offenders, then West Ham would rank highest or there abouts when it comes to repeatedly being gubbed by teams that the 'pundits' feel should have been easily dealt with, and you know, the annoying thing is that they are correct in their appraisal.

Antonio Positive

In these strange pandemic times, even the word positive has taken on negative connotations, but the 'positve' news emerging from the West Ham medical team, all of whom now have a family member 'held' in comfortable surroundings while David Moyes carries out his 'mole hunt', is that Michail Antonio will be fit to take part in Sunday's Barclays Premier League fixture against 'struggling' Sheffield United.

Takehiro Would Have Been A Great Fit For West Ham

With the club finding itself in the lower half of the table after eight games, the east-Londoners led by David Moyes don’t have a lot to be happy or sad about, but they know they need reinforcements. This fact has spurred both fans and bettors to be excited by the chance of Tomiyasu Takehiro joining the squad.
