Tomas Repka

Slavicin Zlin
Squad Number: 2
Position: Defender
Born: 2nd Jan 1974 (Slavicin Zlin)
Signed: 14th Sep 2001 (£5,500,000)
Contract: Details unknown
Previous Club: Fiorentina

Tomas Repka became West Ham United's record signing in September 2001 when Glenn Roeder paid £5.5m for his services to sinking Italian side Fiorentina.

Repka's career couldn't have started in worse fashion as he was sent off in his first game for the club. Subsequent publicised errors led to him being heavily criticised as part of the team which was relegated at the end of the 2002/03 season.

But the Czech defender stuck with it and has since become one of the club's most consistent defenders, and in the summer of 2004 signed an extended one year deal with the Hammers.

Fulham

2-1: Monday, 23rd January

So farewell then Tomas. You were never everybody’s favourite but in recent years when you kept your head you were capable of some good solid performances. Like this one.

Aston Villa

2-1: Saturday, 14th January

Good and solid. Seems to be enjoying his football now his future’s been sorted – I even saw him smile on the big screen during one replay. His absence over the holiday period shows how much he will be missed when he goes home and it’s imperative that we get a replacement in ASAP.

Portsmouth

As bad as the rest of them until he left the field.

Newcastle United

2-4: Saturday, 17th December

Possibly off in January the Czech full-back was at fault for, maybe, two of the goals.

Manchester United

1-2: Sunday, 27th November

A fair performance from Super although a moment of panic proved costly when Park intercepted the Czech's clearance to lay on the second goal.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Sunday, 20th November

Given a hard time in the first half when Yossi gave him little protection. However looked solid in the second half and put in two thundering tackles in quick succession to end a Sp*rs break.

West Bromwich Albion

1-0: Saturday, 5th November

Apart from one early error when he dived in to let Kamara in, this was another fine home effort. Loved the celebration with Pardew for the goal!

Liverpool

0-2: Monday, 31st October

His best game on the road since the win at Fulham last month. Subbed late on as the Hammers looked to nick an equaliser.

Bolton Wanderers

0-1: Wednesday, 26th October

Solid. Was often left with too much ground to defend.

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

A welcome return to form for the Czech who was described by the boss as having “Big Balls”. I wouldn’t know about that but he was assured in defence and played a number of superb passes down the line, especially in the first half.

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

Had an easy game, his passes and tackles were decisive.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

Twice in a row now Tomas has appeared out of sorts. Given his early impressive form this is a worrying development as we have few options at right back at the moment. Ought to buy some new boots with a decent set of studs.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

Poor at Sunderland, very poor today. Despite seeming on top of his game in the opening matches of the season his form has hit rock bottom. He was wildly out of position for the first goal and an impetuous sliding tackle when last man almost let in City for another. Hauled off for the second time in a row by a no doubt hugely disappointed Pardew.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

Poor by his recent standards. I can’t remember seeing anyone fall over as much since the bad old days of David Kelly.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

Like many out there, this was bad day for Super Tom who was given a torrid time by relative unknown Andy Welsh. Pardew even elected for a defensive reshuffle in replacing him with Dailly in the second half. But, again, like so many of those out there, Tom’s been first class this year and also had the decency to acknowledge the travelling support when substituted.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

What happened there? So solid thus far this season Tomas had a dreadful day. Constantly beaten on the flank and unable to deliver even the simplest of passes, this was his worst performance for some considerable time - and he was rewarded by being hauled off unceremoniously on the hour mark. Redeemed himself a little however by producing the best pass of the game, sending a delicious 40 yard pass onto the toe of Teddy Sheringham (who clearly wasn't expecting something so sublime from the Czech and promptly fluffed the chance).

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

A good performance from the Czech who kept a tight ship in defence whilst adding weight to the Hammers attacking options on the flank.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Another solid display from the Czech. Unsurprisingly booked but showed discipline in his positioning and sent in one or two dangerous crosses.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

Fairly solid though his distribution was sometimes not at its best. Nearly talked himself into trouble with the idiot Dean.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

Another fine performance. Wasn’t able to get forward as much as he has recently but he kept his cool defensively.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

Acquitted himself well against the pace of Boa-Morte. Solid and eager to get forward whenever possible.

Aston Villa

4-0: Monday, 12th September

A stormer. Kept his head in the light of some heavy challenges, put over some dangerous looking crosses and, had he kept the ball down early on, might even have netted himself.

Bolton Wanderers

1-2: Saturday, 27th August

Footballing-wise fine. Spent a lot of the match being provoked by little pushes and niggles and reacted well. Then went and spoiled it by getting booked for kicking the ball away.

Newcastle United

Good solid performance at right back though he was scarcely tested by the opposition.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 20th August

A solid first game of the season for the much-maligned Czech. His passing was a little errant at times but that is a minor criticism.
