Friday, 31st August 2018
by Preview Percy
''We'll be honest, we didn't think Preview Percy would survive 90 minutes of standing on a terrace at AFC Wimbledon the other night. Fair play to the old so and so he managed to muddle through even if he has spent the whole of the following three days moaning about the state of his knees. Here's his thoughts on this weekend's visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers. With added linament......''

In Retro: The fifty greatest Hammers
Friday, 31st August 2018
by HeadHammerShark
''Over the summer, West Ham Utd ran an interesting series of articles where they identified the “greatest” fifty players to have ever played for the club. I will confess that I find this kind of thing much more interesting than the general stuff that appears on the official site, which is usually a rehash of the previous week’s “the season starts on Saturday” article...''

Friday, 24th August 2018
by Preview Percy

Friday, 17th August 2018
