Slaven Bilic gets West Ham United's tactics right, still drops points to WBA

Slaven Bilic was impressed by his side's chances in the first half, but admits West Ham lost steam after an equaliser from West Brom.

For a simple game, football can be very difficult to predict sometimes.

West Ham's 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at Upton Park was a game where Slaven Bilic seemed to make all the right moves but just ended up with a heap full of frustration. After a scintillating first half when the Hammers could have a lot more than Mauro Zarate's sumptuous free kick to show for their endeavours, the home side suffered an exasperating second period that could well have ended in defeat.

It was difficult to...

Andy Carroll shown up by Harry Kane in West Ham loss at Tottenham

Tottenham extended their unbeaten run to 12 straight games with a comprehensive 4-1 thumping of West Ham.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic admits he's shocked by his team's performance against Tottenham.

West Ham's 4-1 mauling at the hands of London rivals Tottenham may have been bad but it could have been much, much worse. Picking over the bones of what transpired at White Hart Lane isn't going to do manager Slaven Bilic and his men any good. It is one of those times when it's best to write the result off and try to move on. If they can.

It's been virtually impossible in the last two weeks to read any column on the Hammers that hasn't mentioned Dimitri Payet, the ankle injury that will keep him...

Arsenal should beware -- Tottenham's fine win over West Ham on Sunday was a confident, measured performance -- one of their best of the season, in fact -- and put Mauricio Pochettino's men within two points of their rivals in fourth.

They started slowly but grew in stature, taking the lead through Harry Kane. From them on, the...

Alex Song's return to West Ham helps offset Dimitri Payet's injury

Alex Song is set to make his first appearance since his undergoing ankle surgery over the summer.
Alex Song is set to make his first appearance since his undergoing ankle surgery over the summer.

For most West Ham fans, a league meeting with Tottenham Hotspur is one of the highlights of the season. Each game is an addition to a long standing enmity that has grown disproportionately since Spurs attempted to move into the East End as tenants of the Olympic Stadium.

While Spurs fans probably save their ire for what they see are bigger tests with mightier foe, there's still a growing sense that recent meetings are doing more than just updating a cross-London rivalry.

With the move to Stratford...

Former WWE star Kurt Angle supports West Ham; or is that Cardiff?

Former WWE wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle dropped into West Ham's stadium to check out the venue ahead of the London leg of his ongoing "Audience with" tour.

Impressed by the Hammers' flying start to the Premier League season, Angle was more than happy to swear his allegiance to the claret and blue by proudly holding aloft his own personalised replica shirt.

However, it...

Slaven Bilic dealing with an Andy Carroll conundrum at West Ham

As West Ham fans come to terms with the injury news that has seen Dimitri Payet sidelined for three months, the focus turns back to the other big conversation point highlighted against Everton

When Andy Carroll was substituted in the 87th minute of the game, the player received a huge ovation. Most realised that this wasn't one of the striker's better afternoons, but there was appreciation of the effort put in. John Stones had shackled Carroll for most of the game and there was a begrudging acceptance...
