West Ham United, also known as the Irons, are currently flying high in the 2015/2016 EPL season—all thanks to some rejuvenation and shrewd business made in the last transfer window. The club did not only change its entire management team during the last window; it also brought in some great players.
Currently fighting for a place in next season’s Champions League campaign; West Ham United will for a very long time remember the current season as one of its best in the EPL era.
West Ham United is enjoying their best Premier League run in modern times as the squad of Slaven Bilic is currently positioned in the 7th spot and have collected victories against top clubs in English league including: Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The players of Slaven Bilic are performing better than ever before with an entertaining playing style and they are now hoping that this recent change of form will help lure into the club a different class of players.
West Ham have no intention of selling star striker Andy Carroll according to manager Slaven Bilic.
Slaven Bilic has heaped praise on Manuel Lanzini saying that the Argentinean has started off much better in England than he had expected him to while signing him on loan.
Lanzini has played 8 games for the Hammers so far and has scored 2 goals, but, more than the goals, Bilic is impressed to see the kind of impact that he has been able to make.
Swansea City’s Garry Monk has stated on numerous occasions that the Spanish forward Michu does not play any role in his plans and that the 29 year old attacker is not expected to perform for the Premier League club in this entire new season. West Ham have been linked.
Goals from Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany were enough for Manchester City to defeat West Bromwich Albion as they claimed a 3-0 triumph in the opening match day of this new Premier League season.
Manchester City dominated the match from start till the very end as they had 69% of possession and launched a total of 19 shots meanwhile West Bromwich Albion could only muster 9 shots.
Harry Redknapp has publicly expressed his desire to return to West Ham, who are managerless after deciding not to renew the contract of Sam Allardyce.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce says that his future at Upton Park is still uncertain amidst reports that he will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the campaign.
Allardyce has been at West Ham for years now. During this period, he has overseen the club’s promotion back to the Premier League. This campaign, they are on course to registering a top-10 finish if they managed to keep their heads above Stoke City in the last six games. Concerns about the style of football at the end of last season forced Allardyce into adopting new methods at West Ham.
Ever since West Ham United hosted and received Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground on February 8, there has been a debate and discussion going on between Sam Allardyce and Louis van Gaal. The coach of West Ham United, Sam Allardyce stated that his team couldn’t maintain the lead they had due to the ‘’long ball’’ tactics that Manchester United was utilizing during the match.
Louis van Gaal responded to this comment by displaying a 4 page report which had details and statistics concerning everything that happened during the match.
After taking only one win in the last four matches, West Ham may have slipped from the lofty top four places recently, but that has not prevented Sam Allardyce from aiming a victory when his team take on Arsenal at Upton Park.
The hammers have improved massively compared to last season. They now boast an impressive strikeforce which is more than capable of troubling any defence on its day. Defending has been a major issue for West Ham’s next opponents, Arsenal. Despite possessing German star Per Mertesacker, they have struggled to have an authority in defence.
