West Ham too indifferent to compete at Man City

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce reacts to his side's 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.

On a weekend when thousands of West Ham supporters spent many hours of their own time, ear glued to the telephone, looking to renew or change their season ticket for the last season at the Boleyn, the last thing that was wanted was a lacklustre capitulation that smacked of season-end tiredness. Sadly, that was what was served in a 2-0 defeat at the Etihad, where a bizarre James Collins own-goal and an excellent counter-attack that led to Sergio Aguero netting had the Hammers chasing like headless...

1. Pellegrini is safe for now

Manchester City fans briefly sung Manuel Pellegrini's name in the opening exchanges. It may be deceptive. Some sections of the club's support would prefer he left, but this was not a day to revolt. West Ham were obliging opponents and City cruised to a forgettable win.

After six defeats in nine games, sticking plasters were applied...

Allardyce can be forgiven for defensive strategy in visit to Man City

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce believes his side should have won against Stoke City after scoring an early goal.

At face value the loss of striker Diafra Sakho to a pulled thigh muscle might seem to be a bitter blow to West Ham. Although reports of the severity of the injury seem to have be slightly-exaggerated -- it is thought now that the Senegalese international won't necessarily be out for the reminder of the season -- it is still a massive setback for a team that has struggled for points since January.

With only one recognised first-choice striker in Enner Valencia and a useful option from the bench...

Marko Arnautovic's late equaliser adds to West Ham United's woes

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce believes his side should have won against Stoke City after scoring an early goal.

There are few things worse in football than a 95th-minute goal that denies your side points; worse when it comes so late there's barely time to restart the game.

That was the situation at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon, as Stoke City had Marko Arnautovic to thank for a point in a 1-1 draw that kept them level with West Ham in the Premier League.

Inevitably, tempers were strained around the Boleyn postmatch, but even the hardest-hearted Hammer had to concede Stoke were worth their point. Indeed,...

Sam Allardyce future continues to dominate agenda at West Ham

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce spoke on Friday about their season targets and their weekend Premier League fixture against Stoke.

There's been a lot of discussion on West Ham fan sites regarding the team's inability to raise their game against opposition at either end of the table.

Facing teams scrapping for vital points as they try to qualify for the Champions League or to escape the Championship, it's being widely suggested that Sam Allardyce's mid-table team don't have sufficient motivation to roll up their sleeves and battle.

That being the case, Saturday's game against Stoke City should provide some relief. Mark Hughes'...

West Ham's loss to Leicester City adds pressure on Sam Allardyce

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes his side should have at least drew with Leicester City in what he called a 'very entertaining match for the neutrals'.
Leciester City's manager Nigel Pearson believes there is a fine line between winning, drawing and losing in the Premier League.

With contract negotiations due to start at the end of the season, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce certainly didn't make things easy for himself by overseeing a desperately disappointing defeat to bottom club Leicester City.

The Hammers' 2-1 defeat in a highly entertaining match at the King Power Stadium, was a delight for the neutral and a real boost for Nigel Pearson's side's battle against relegation but, once again, the Claret and Blue seem to be the perennial whipping boys when a change of fortune...
