Zola To Ditch Bowyer But Holds Onto Mullins

West Ham's exodus of players looks set to start with a broom in the face of the fring players, with Lee Bowyer set to be the first to fall in the clear-out. The Echo is reporting that while Hayden Mullins has apparently been told he has a future at the club, the likes of Boywer, Calum Davenport and James Collins are all heading for the exit. They would be the first of up to eight, with a large ....

The midfielder - tipped to be the side's player of the year despite the team failing to gain any honours - will be watched by representatives of West Ham in the FAI Ford Cup Semi-final this week, according to a report in Wednesday’s Irish Sun. Apparently ....

Fa Ready To Shut Down West Ham's Appeal

Despite being granted the right to appeal to CAS over the Sheffield United affair, the FA could be set to shut it down. The decision was expected at the end of the month over the billions and billions of pound fine that was going to get every other team in the world a slice of compensation from the Hammers, and inevitably lead to a credit crunch meltdown. We're paraphrasing, but it seems some ....

West Ham To Announce Short Sponsors This Afternoon

Reports are coming in that West Ham are about to announce a new shirt sponsor this afternoon. The deal is set to be around £4 million per year, which would easily eclipse that of the failed XL company. Free! UptonSparks has tried in vain to get our logo on the front of the West Ham shirts for the remainder of the campaign, but for some reason our offer of providing FREE half time ....

West Ham Wouldn't Sell Top Players For 30 Million

Gianluca Nani has reiterated the club's stance on their top players: they're not for sale. Speaking about the rumoured sale of Valon Behrami to Roma, he said: "I am tired of responding to questions on Behrami. I repeat - Behrami is not for sale and Roma have never asked for the player. "Behrami is our player, we have high hopes for him so I see no reason to sell. "Even if an offer arrived ....

West Ham Out To Steal Charlton's Buyers

West Ham are apparently hoping Zabeel Investments, the buyers looking to table a bid for Charlton, will be attracted to another London club. The Hammers have been looking for a cut price buyer, and with the price falling to a fraction of what Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson paid for the club, the Dubai group could be willing to switch their interest. They are said to have already tabled a bid for the ....

Cheer Up. Meltdown May Never Happen...

Another Sunday. Another tabloid expose of West Ham's financial problems. Don't get me wrong. This credit crunch is for real and things are going to be sticky for a bit. But come on. I'm not going to be slitting my wrists just yet. West Ham have a good squad to stand oine or two departures in January should the need arise. And the doom-laden scenario that somehow West Ham might end up in ....

Diego Still Training With West Ham As Zola Makes His Mind Up

Spanish striker Diego Tristan is still on trial at West Ham, despite reports to the contrary. The 32-year-old could provide some short-term cover for the crocked Dean Ashton and in these credit crunching times might well be the short-term future in terms of targets from now on. Spanish international Tristan's career has been on the wane since about 2002 and he now finds himself a free agent ....

Harry Redknapp, who worked with the player in his days as West Ham boss, said he ran into the Croatian at a training session, where ....

Plans For New Stadium Run Aground

West Ham's plans to move into the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 games were over have been shelved due to cost problems. However, the London Development Agency is looking for the Hammers to move to a 50,000 stadium next to the tube station, according to the Echo. The cost of the Olympic stadium would be nearly £400m when the necessary retractable seating had been installed, and in today's ....

Sears Abandoning Hammers For Arsenal?

The Guardian is reporting in its daily email round up that Sears is looking to abandon West Ham for Arsenal in order to join the Wenger brigade of young 'uns. OK, look, we'll lay our cards on the table with this one before it's even started. This is just rumour we've picked up on the grapevine, but one that makes more than a teeny bit of sense. Hey! If you're thinking 'hey, but he's barely ....
