by Preview Percy
''When we went to pick up this week's offering from Preview Percy we noticed lots of children hanging around outside the Avram Grant Olympic Rest Home For The Bewildered all in tears. Apparently the grumpy one sent them all on an Easter Egg hunt. Without actually supplying any Easter Eggs. Here's his look at this weekend's trip to Wearside......''


Who do you think you are kidding, gentlemen?

''West Ham were so quick to try to squash any newspaper story suggesting they are trying to find new investment. You just know there is more to it, donít you? So suggestions that our owners are searching for new investment are "utterly false" should be taken with a large pinch of salt...''

West Ham United v Swansea City
Thursday, 6th April 2017
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy's struggling a bit this week. We hear he is receiving treatment for some sort of strain sustained during the 100th rendition of "The Wenger Hokey-Cokey" up at Arsenal the other night. Apparently he got stuck during the "knees bent" bit. Here's his look at this weekend's visit of Swansea, with due apologies for the overpowering smell of linament.....''

Hull City v West Ham United
Friday, 31st March 2017
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy doesn't enjoy international breaks because he doesn't get to do his thing. Funnily enough we enjoy them for precisely the same reason. However, if for some unaccountable reason, you've missed him, he is back and here's his look at this weekend's trip to Hull.......''


Humility, dignity and class
Friday, 31st March 2017
by The Pink Palermo
''I like Slaven Bilic - which doesn't qualify him as a good manager, but I believe he is a good person (although Laurent Blanc may not agree). He is the sort of person I'd happily spend a night in the pub chatting with. He has an engaging warmth and I believe the players like that...''

No time to be fickle, Bilic in or out?
Monday, 20th March 2017
by Adam Smith
''Another loss, another defensive disaster, and another three goals scored. And sure, there is no time to be fickle for West Ham United and their supporters when it comes to the elephant in the room, but is there justification for wanting Slaven Bilic out?..''


West Ham United v Leicester City
Friday, 17th March 2017
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy came back from Bournemouth with a cold. Monaco v Man City cheered him up a bit though. As did the excuse to indulge in a medicinal brandy or three. Here's his typically warped look at this weekend's visit of Leicester City.....''

''Preview Percy isn't always a grumpy old fool you know. He let the work experience girl with the large t-shirt collection go home a whole five minutes early on International Women's Day (though he actually claims it was because somebody had been fiddling with his pocket watch). Here's his look at this weekend's trip to Bournemouth.......''
