West Ham injury curse threatens farewell season at Upton Park

With the Hammers largely overachieving in the first half of last season's Premier League campaign, it would seem the West Ham will be looking for consistency.

If Slaven Bilic was hoping for an extended honeymoon period at Upton Park, then he has obviously underestimated the size of the task he faces.

In West Ham's final season in Green Street, the pressure on the Croatian to ensure that club move into the Olympic Stadium in Stratford as a solid Premier League outfit is a given. Any flirtation with the relegation places will press a panic button of seismic proportions. Add the insistence of the Hammers faithful that the team play attractive and attacking...

West Ham hope to bid farewell to Upton Park in style this season

ESPNFC's Janusz Michallik provides the lowdown on West Ham's recruitment of France international midfielder Dimitri Payet from Marseille.

West Ham will play their final season at Upton Park this season and hope to end their association with the storied ground on a high note. Here's a look at what to expect from Slaven Bilic's men as we approach the new campaign...

Preview

To finish the last season at Upton Park as an established, strong yet entertaining Premier League side capable of pushing on to bigger things.

Biggest concern

Involvement in the bloated Europa League has stymied bigger clubs than West Ham in the past, and the July...

West Ham, Leicester and Newcastle taking risks with new managers

Leicester City introduced new manager Claudio Ranieri, with the Italian announcing his goal for the season is to earn one more point then the team did last campaign.

When fighting relegation is the expectation for the new season, bringing in new management represents a serious gamble. Three clubs with such an outlook have taken on such a bet, at a moment of increasingly high stakes. New managers rarely arrive at clubs in positions of strength and winning the hearts and minds of owners, players and fans comes only from the delivery of decent results and good football.

Each of West Ham, Leicester and Newcastle are at considerable risk with their new appointments....

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...
