Slaven Bilic has yet to stamp his authority on West Ham squad

Slaven Bilic speaks on his love for West Ham United after he was unveiled as the club's new manager.

West Ham survived an embarrassing evening against Birkirkara in the Europa League on Thursday, reserving their Premier League class for the penalty shootout. As the Hammers proved in their FA Cup win against Everton last January, the club have a full complement of players comfortable from the spot, and that was demonstrated admirably when youngster Diego Poyet coolly put his side through.

There's little doubt, though, that the representatives from the Premier League were humbled by the Maltese...

West Ham need striker reinforcements to manage multiple competitions

Slaven Bilic speaks on his love for West Ham United after he was unveiled as the club's new manager.

West Ham's turgid and unconvincing 1-0 win over Maltese side Birkirkara in the first leg of the second qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday sounded an early warning to new boss Slaven Bilic.

With only James Tomkins' late winner to show for an evening of dominating possession, the board will now surely increase their attempt to sign QPR's Charlie Austin. On this showing, West Ham will struggle in Europe and the Premier League if they are forced to play without either Diafra Sakho or Andy...

Bilic turns to youth to keep West Ham fresh in Europa League adventure

Slaven Bilic has enjoyed a good start to life as manager of West Ham, with two wins in two.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic would have been impressed with what he saw in his new side's 1-0 win over Lusitanos in Europa League qualifying on Thursday.

With five players under 21 and the only goal scored by 20-year-old Elliott Lee, Bilic can congratulate himself on giving many of his academy side a taste of European football while giving himself a better idea of the club's strength in depth.

While it's perhaps unfair to speculate too much, it seems unlikely the club would have followed the same...

Youth teamers pave way for West Ham in Europa League opener

At the end of a baking hot summer's day, West Ham completed a leisurely 3-0 victory over Andorran side FC Lusitanos to put themselves in a strong position to advance to the next qualifying stage of the Europa League.

It seems appropriate that the Hammers should celebrate the start of their final season at the Boleyn with one of the strangest evenings ever to be seen at the old ground.

The sight of the new 1904 replica shirt in Green Street was inevitable enough. What wasn't expected though was...

West Ham kick off final season at Upton Park with 3-0 win in UEL opener

A brace from Diafra Sakho, centre, was more than enough for West Ham to see off Andorran visitors Lustians.

LONDON -- The Copa America is not yet complete. Neither is the Women's World Cup. The kids have not even begun to think about school's start, while tennis at Wimbledon is just three days into its fortnight. The transfer window only opened on Wednesday. Yet for West Ham, the 2015-16 season started here, on July 2, amid London's hottest, sunniest week of the year.

Relaxing in his Spanish villa, former manager Sam Allardyce might have chuckled about this dubious farewell present. The reward for...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.

Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, James Milner, Danny Ings and Glen Johnson have all moved on this summer and the window next year will be no different.

As a host of players enter the final year of their deals, coveted footballers can find themselves in an even more enviable position when they are able to enter the market without...
