Dimitri Payet headlines West Ham's mixed transfer window

Former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop gives his take on the impact Alex Song will have on the Hammers for another season-long loan.

With the transfer window closed it's time to look at West Ham's ins and outs and whether Slaven Bilic can be pleased with his summer business.


Dimitri Payet (Marseille, £11 million); Angelo Ogbonna (Juventus, £8.5m); Pedro Obiang (Sampdoria, £4.3 million); Stephen Hendrie (Hamilton Academicals, £1m); Nikica Jelavic (Hull City, undisclosed); Michail Antonio (Nottingham Forest, undisclosed); Darren Randolph (Birmingham City, free); Carl Jenkinson (Arsenal, loan); Manuel Lanzini...

Manchester City lead Premier League transfer grades after brilliant summer

As the transfer window shuts, the ESPN FC panel take a look back at Arsenal and Manchester United's inability to secure a marquee signing, Chelsea's new additions, Kevin De Bruyne joining Manchester City to bolster Manuel Pellegrini's attack and much more

With the summer transfer window finally done and dusted, ESPN FC grades all 20 Premier League clubs based on how they fared in their dealings.

Manchester City - A+

Winners of the window and, consequently, now strong favourites to be winners of the title. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke recently of how City "reacted" to his team winning the league in the way the London side itself did last season, but it was more than that.

This was more than a reaction. It was precise and rational business,...

Slaven Bilic helps West Ham break 52-year Anfield hoodoo

Liverpool's three-match winning streak came to an abrupt halt when West Ham convincingly defeated them 3-0 at Anfield.
ESPNFC's Shaka Hislop reflects on his former club West Ham's first win at Anfield since 1963, leaving Brendan Rodgers with much to ponder.
Slaven Bilic gave his verdict after guiding West Ham United to a 3-0 win over Liverpool, their first league win at Anfield since 1963.

It was a victory for which West Ham had waited 52 years and 42 league games.

To a neutral, the Hammers' postmatch hyperbole might seem too much, but to a fan, the club's 3-0 away win at Liverpool is the end of a nightmare, ending an embarrassing run of results that defied all logic. As one middle-aged supporter tweeted later, "I have waited all my life for this result - quite literally!"

The odd thing about the Hammers' long, barren run at Anfield was the illogical but growing sense that greater...

ESPNFC's Shaka Hislop reflects on his former club West Ham's first win at Anfield since 1963, leaving Brendan Rodgers with much to ponder.

1. A nightmare for Liverpool

When examining a shock result, you must decide whether it was the favourites playing particularly badly or the underdogs excelling. It's always a blend of both, of course, but here it was primarily the former.

West Ham defended perfectly well, but they offered little attacking threat, and their two goals came almost out of nothing.

The opener...

Kevin Nolan exit and West Ham's dodgy start has fans concerned

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic says Diafra Sakho could play at Liverpool following the striker's arrest for alleged witness intimidation.

West Ham's poor start to the season and Kevin Nolan's surprise departure by mutual consent has raised the alarm bells among the club's support.

Nolan, 33, has left the club just days before the end of the transfer window and while it's not the case of him leaving that is the issue, it's more down to the timing and nature of the announcement.

The captain still had a year left on a five-year contract and this decision has raised concerns over what is happening behind the scenes at the club.

The sad...

West Ham slump at Upton Park to increase concern over Bilic tactics

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson netted a hat-trick in his side's first ever Premier League victory.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic feels his side were not attacking the game with the same intensity that Bournemouth were.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop discusses the end-to-end Premier League match between West Ham United and AFC Bournemouth, where it was the Cherries who took all three points via a Callum Wilson hat trick.

East London may have been baking in a sweltering heat on Saturday, but there will be a chilly feel around the West Ham directors' box following Bournemouth's stunning 4-3 win at Upton Park.

Bournemouth's first Premier League victory may provide some good headlines for the sports pages but it sounded a dire warning to West Ham manager Slaven Bilic who looked on aghast at what unfolded in front of him. The Hammers were utterly inept against Eddie Howe's bright side and the coaching staff have a lot...
