Over the summer we acquired some top talent from across Europe starting in Spain with Spanish U23’s Euro star Pablo For...

Was West Ham’s Season a Success or Failure?

Was West Ham’s Season a Success or Failure?

Was West Ham’s season a success or a failure? its a question I’m seeing a lot online especially on the twitter scene. I think people’s overall decision on whether it was or wasn’t rode on the last game of the season, with a win taking us into the top 10, possibly ninth if Chelsea were to beat Leicester. If we would have lost, I think the majority would have tipped towards t...

When practicing VT’s we covered Brexit. it was a fun day out. and it was really interesting to capture the two conflicting sides of the argument. We also learned about what the key ingredients are to a VT, e.g voxpops. the use of natur...

What I Learnt From Filming Our Brexit VT

What I Learnt From Filming Our Brexit VT

I learnt a lot while out filming outside the Houses of Parliament. You see on social media the clear divide between leave and remain, but when you get to Westminster it’s exactly the same. Both parties deliberately stand near each other to shout over each other, or cover up each others signs and to basically, annoy each other. I also enjoyed seeing and reading the different signs that were o...

Cardiff City V.S West Ham United Post-Match Blog

I’m going to keep this post short, the team was unchanged from the home win against Newcastle. For me, although I believe in not changing a winning formula, changes needed to be made. For me, Antonio had to start over Snodgrass and Arnautovic starting ahead of Chicharito. We went behind straight away, poor defending allowed Hoilett to slip in at the near post to put the home side in front. W...

West Ham United V.S Newcastle United Post-Match Blog

I would first like to start off by congratulating club legend, Billy Bonds. A true hero for all fans young and old. Naming a stand after him was a fitting way to celebrate his legacy. Bonds led West Ham to two FA Cups, and played 799 appearances for the club over a 20 car period playing into his 40’s. The game against Newcastle last Saturday was a shining example of how we should play agains...

Crystal Palace V.S West Ham United Post-Match Blog

The best way to describe the recent game against Crystal Palace is, a game of two halves. The game ended 1-1 at Selhurst Park, and the game itself to the neutral, was a cracking game of premier league football. The West Ham lineup was unchanged from the previous game against Liverpool, this was the right decision made by Pellegrini. The team played well against Liverpool and clearly deserved the 3...

West Ham United V.S Liverpool FC Post-Match Blog

Going into the game, as a West Ham fan you’d take the point and run. But looking back on yesterday’s match and how it played out, you can only feel robbed. The referee and the linesmen had absolute shockers. The first main one leading to the first goal of the match and one which very nearly gave Liverpool all three points right at the death. The West Ham line up was pretty predictable ...

Transfer Round-up: Who Is Maxi Gomez?

First of all, I’m glad to be back writing on West Ham after a much-needed break over Christmas. It’s now January, and you know what that means. A month where West Ham are linked to every player under the sun. But which ones have legs to them? I’ll be breaking down various players that we have been linked too. The first player is Gary Medel. A 31-year-old Chilean international who...

West Ham United V.S Crystal Palace Blog

This past week has been something special, 3 wins and 9 goals scored, and another good performance from home in a 3-2 win against Crystal Palace. A couple of expected changes were made to the winning side which faced Cardiff in mid-week with Perez coming in for Arnautovic, who as I mentioned in my previous blog would not be so lucky with his recent injury. Zabaleta coming in for Antonio at right-b...
