  3. Same old story in Emirates test

    Peter Thorne

    The inevitability of the comment was such that I was actually sitting waiting for it. Sure enough, the little epithet duly arrived from the TV commentator during the first half of the extra 30 minutes of Saturday evening's FA cup semi-final between A...

  4. 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...

  5. Hammers pay the penalty

    Peter Thorne

  7. 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...

  8. Confusion reigns in Hammers win

    Peter Thorne

  9. Hapless Hammers and the slides of March

  10. Chants of a lifetime

  12. Hammers hoping for a Britannia reversal

    Peter Thorne

    Peter Thorne

    It's been a quiet week for West Ham with Hull's efforts in the FA Cup meaning the Hammers have a break they would probably rather have done without. Doubtless though, in a World Cup year, there will be talk of burn-out and winter breaks and all the o...
