  1. Gerrard retirement talk should be shelved for now

    Peter Thorne

    The news that Steven Gerrard is to consider his international football career after the World Cup is the type of headline Roy Hodgson did not need in his build-up to Brazil. Media frenzy over decisions that haven't yet been made are the type of th...

  2. Will the Hammers change despite Allardyce staying?

    Peter Thorne

    Only in the crazy world of Premiership football can an announcement that "absolutely nothing has changed" create a seismic debate. West Ham United's declaration that Sam Allardyce is to remain as manager is already garnering a huge online discussi...

  3. End of season report: West Ham

    Peter Thorne

    The hearts of many will sink when they recall that old-school report that read: "Could do better," but that epithet applies to West Ham United this season. People talk about pushing on, and that was the expectation in 2013-14. Most will say there has...

  4. West Ham's limp effort sums up Allardyce tenure

    Peter Thorne

    While Manchester City will grab the headlines for sealing the title, Sunday's procession reflected poorly on Sam Allardyce's West Ham. They had nothing to play for, and it showed. Allardyce's plan -- as so often this season -- seemed to have no su...

  6. Crunch time for Sam?

    Peter Thorne

    As ever at West Ham, there is never a drama to be considered if a crisis can be substituted instead. Mathematically, it's true that the Hammers need to get a point or three in their final two games to ensure Premiership survival. But there's an al...

    West Ham lost their seventh game in nine matches on Saturday, going down 1-0 to a battling West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. Saido Berahino's 11th-minute goal was set against a backdrop of dissent by the travelling Hammers fans, who barracked...

  8. That end of season feeling

    Peter Thorne

    West Ham visit the Hawthorns on Saturday looking -- apparently at least -- for the point or three that will ensure Premier League football next season. But although I'm not able to work out the maths -- a secondary school education in east London wil...

  9. Hammers slump at home again

    Peter Thorne

    West Ham suffered their ninth home defeat of the season, going down 1-0 to a lively Crystal Palace, who chalked up a league double against their neighbours from the other side of the Thames. The game was marked by a touching tribute to Dylan Tombi...

  10. A tribute to Dylan Tombides

    Peter Thorne

    West Ham United have sadly announced that striker Dylan Tombides has died at the young age of 20 from testicular cancer, an illness the youngster bravely battled since first being diagnosed in the summer of 2011. It was thought that Dylan had won...

  12. Taylor-made refereeing

    Peter Thorne

    Ever keen to go against the flow -- it's been a problem for me since I was a child, so blame my mother -- I'm not at all disappointed to see the debate going on over the standard of refereeing displayed at last weekend's game against Liverpool at Upt...

  13. Hammers pay the penalty

    Peter Thorne

    West Ham were unable to stop Liverpool in a 2-1 loss at Upton Park, but they can be pleased overall with a battling performance that could have brought a point but for two Steven Gerrard penalties, scored with some coolness in a match filled with con...

  14. Carroll earns the cheers

    Peter Thorne

    There was no sign of booing from the away fans as West Ham United left Sunderland to rapturous applause with all three points in a 2-1 win, built on the back of a sterling defensive display and a man-of-the-match performance from Andy Carroll. - R...

  15. The Allardyce conundrum

    Peter Thorne

    It would be too grandiose to say that there is a battle for the soul of West Ham going on -- that one was fought when Terence Brown introduced the Bond Scheme during the tenure of Billy Bonds -- but there is at least a definite movement in place; one...

  16. Hapless Hammers and the slides of March

    Peter Thorne

    West Ham United continue to look nervously over their shoulder as February's golden month has given way to the slide of March. David Moyes was able to see his Manchester United team run out comfortable 2-0 winners at the Boleyn Ground, defeating a po...
