AFC Bournemouth v West Ham United
Friday, 10th March 2017
by Preview Percy

Watford v West Ham United
Friday, 24th February 2017
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy would like to point out that, although his column carries no sponsorship he'd prefer to be contacted by brewers of decent ales rather than get involved in anything involving the eating of pies. Here's his look at this weekend's visit to Watford. If you find any useful information in there it's likely to have been supplied by our friends at www.kickoff.com.....''

Monday morning reflections: getting over a 2-2 defeat
Monday, 13th February 2017
by Adam Smith
''A day or two have gone by, but the sting is still there. A 94th-minute equaliser takes the absolute elation out of a crowd that was celebrating the home squad, and replaced it with utter heartbreak. But how can a draw and a point from a team the Hammers are chasing hurt so bad?..''
