Thursday, 1st February 2001
by Mark Evans
''Could you believe that Tony Hubba-Bubba Gubba or whatever the f*ck his name is when he said..."That may be the West Ham fans you can hear singing..." as "Bubbles" & "H's Claret & Blue Army" reverberated around Old Trafford!? Are you f*cking sure Tone!? That's ALL you could hear, for the majority of the match....out-singing the Manc Shites on their own patch...and then we SCORED! Fucking Brilliant. OFFSIDE MY ARSE! Go On Paolo my old son!..''

However, Iíve come to the conclusion that we will have to see what they are like after 8-10 matches, a la Kanoute, rather than write them off before theyíve played. Instead I want to talk about our relationship with the media, particularly the newspapers...''

Why on Earth?
Monday, 1st January 2001
by Damian Muncaster
''Norfolk doesnít have the greatest connections at the best of times, so with the trains at the present time being as reliable as a Florida recount, and as frequent as a Steve Potts goal my travels from Norfolk to Upton Park havenít been as regular as I would have liked this season. So to satisfy my need of a bit of live footie on a Saturday afternoon Iíve ended up watching the mighty Linnets of the Dr Martens Premier division...''

Time to look abroad?
Wednesday, 25th October 2000
by Kit Robinson
''In the wake of Kevin Keegan's departure from the helm as England boss, it has been interesting to see a couple of different perspectives upon International teams in the last couple of days. A major part of the debate surrounding England, seems to centre around the proís and cons of an English or foreign coach. It could also be, that because of West Hamís current plight near the foot of the table that many West Ham supporters may also believe that a foreign coach, or a non-West Ham related coach may be needed at Upton Park...''
