West Ham must be wary of Leicester City banana skin

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce explains that his side picked up a well-deserved point in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland, as the Hammers currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League.

West Ham welcome Leicester City to Upton Park on Saturday looking for a vital win to take into the busy Christmas period.

Hammers fans may have one eye on the rather more tempting fare available with a Boxing Day visit to Chelsea or a match two days later against Arsenal at the Boleyn, but it is vitally important that the team gain maximum points against the Foxes, as any loss of momentum could cost them dearly in the later games.

It's a tradition that when the fixture list is released every...

Big Sam's Hammers leave Stadium of Light with a hard-earned point

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce explains that his side picked up a well-deserved point in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland, as the Hammers currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League.

West Ham gained another valuable and well-earned point in a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light against a spirited Sunderland side. Once again the Hammers fell behind -- a disputed penalty that had Sam Allardyce fuming -- before hauling themselves back into contention just seven minutes later with a well-taken Stewart Downing goal.

Current state of West Ham is worth savouring

West Ham United took down Swansea City 3-1 and now sit in fourth in the Premier League, but it was Andy Carroll who only recently returned from injury who stole the show.

You'll excuse this blogger if he gets a bit smug this week, but I fought an almost lone battle in support of manager Sam Allardyce last season and followed this up with an impassioned plea not to jettison Andy Carroll too early when he suffered another injury setback this campaign and, happily, I have been proved right on both counts.

It's long been my belief that the short-term attitude to virtually everything in the Premier League is counterproductive and the Year Zero elements of the league...

Carroll on song as West Ham climb to a lofty third in the Premier League

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce reacts to moving up to third in the Premier League table following his side's 3-1 victory over Swansea.

Just before Diafra Sakho scored his 87th minute goal -- West Ham's third -- the Senegal International followed his predatory striker's instinct when one on one with Swansea keeper Gerhard Tremmel, electing to shoot and striking the post when a low cross to Andy Carroll would surely have given the Geordie his hat-trick. Carroll was denied the match-ball that he would have fully deserved but he did still have his own hat-trick of sorts. For this was the third season running where Carroll has utterly...

Andy Carroll has West Ham dreaming of Europe after towering display

Sam Allardyce said before the match he couldn't have signed Wilfried Bony as he had committed to landing Andy Carroll, and the former Liverpool striker turned the match around with two headers.

LONDON -- A trio of thoughts as Andy Carroll inspired West Ham to a 3-1 win over Swansea on Sunday to move up to third in the Premier League for the time being.

West Ham fans dreaming of Europe

A few minutes after a resurgent Andy Carroll had claimed his second goal of the game and Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski had been sent off to pretty much secure an eventual 3-1 West Ham United win, Upton Park erupted in an ear-catching chant.

"Barcelona," the entire ground roared, "we're coming for you!"

Hammers' strength on show as Allardyce's men continue upward surge

Sam Allardyce believes the depth of his West Ham squad has been crucial to the team's upturn in form in the Premier League.

West Ham's impressive 2-1 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Tuesday night was further proof that when a team's confidence is high, it's almost like playing with an extra man.

When the Baggies ended their goal drought of 320 minutes, most of the Claret and Blue persuasion would have been expecting the worst. Historically, if there's a team not scoring or a player on a drought, West Ham usually oblige. In West Brom's relegation scrap last season, it was the Hammers who gave up three vital points...
