West Ham United

 By Peter Thorne

West Ham must avoid complacency against desperate Leicester City

Sam Allardyce and West Ham will need a win against Leicester City if they want to keep the club's slim hopes of playing in the Europa League alive.

After a two-week international break, West Ham resumes Premier League action against bottom of the table Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

This should be one of those games that West Ham will be looking forward to with relish. With some players refreshed after a week's break, some given a boost from a number of successful international appearances, and others able to use the time to shake off a few nagging injuries, a game against the bottom club would look to be a good opportunity to build...

Newcastle, Sunderland, West Ham and QPR all tough jobs, so who fits the bill?

John Carver's keeping the seat warm at Newcastle, but let's be honest: it's a good job if you fancy a challenge.

As the 2014-15 Premier League season enters its final furlong, some of England's biggest clubs are already preparing for next season. Two major full-time managerial vacancies already exist, at Newcastle United and Sunderland; two more are likely to open up at West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers. Iain Macintosh scours the job pages.

PROS: The trophy cabinet begs to differ but don't be fooled. This is still one of the biggest clubs in the country....

West Ham's best decision would be to keep Sam Allardyce as manager

West Ham striker Diafra Sakho scored a late winner to inflict defeat on new Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat in his first match in charge and finally bring some cheer back to Upton Park.
Sam Allardyce may only have a 38.73 winning percentage as manager of West Ham but he offers Premier League stability to a club that suffered relegation just four seasons ago.

Gus Poyet's sacking at Sunderland last week raised again the already fractious debate about Sam Allardyce's tenure at Upton Park. With rumour and counter-rumour adding to the conjecture in the media about the manager's future with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, a step back and a bit of logic need to be applied.

Sunderland's announcement that Dick Advocaat was to temporarily take over the reins at the Stadium of Light at least put an end to the story that Big Sam had been seen...

Diafra Sakho earns West Ham a win and restores feel-good factor

West Ham striker Diafra Sakho scored a late winner to inflict defeat on new Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat in his first match in charge and finally bring some cheer back to Upton Park.

This was a game with 0-0 written all over it, a game featuring two teams short on confidence and low on ideas, with critical fan bases who expect more and managers under pressure. The thing is, no one told Diafra Sakho.

When the Senegalese forward rifled home with just two minutes left of the 90, after excellent work by Mark Noble, it was like a weight was lifted from the crowd. Previously quiet, it suddenly sounded as if the European gates had opened, and the Irons were back with a 1-0 win to end...

Allardyce vs. Advocaat adds spice to West Ham clash with Sunderland

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce talks about how their upcoming match on Saturday is a must win against a Sunderland side with new manager Dick Advocaat at the helm.

It's always intriguing when the Premier League fixture list throws up a clash that has gained an extra bit of sheen along the course of the season.

West Ham welcome Sunderland to Upton Park this weekend in a match that didn't look as if it would provide much interest beyond the confines of the two clubs concerned before recent events.

But now, with Sunderland in freefall and Dick Advocaat at the helm and facing Sam Allardyce, who was linked with the job, this game takes on a different aspect altogether....

West Ham's bad luck continues against a rampant Arsenal

ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps Arsenal's 3-0 victory over West Ham.

There was little cheer for West Ham at the Emirates as Arsenal ran out convincing 3-0 winners thanks to an Oliver Giroud opener in first-half injury time and two late strikes by Aaron Ramsey and Matheiu Flamini.

The Hammers had keeper Adrian to thank for a number of fine saves to keep the score down as the home side secured their tenth straight win over the claret and blue, the result forcing a furious Sam Allardyce to send his Assistant Neil McDonald out to face the TV and press while the manager...
