Hammers in the Heart - Sun Oct 1 1:43 PM
West Ham 1 Swansea City 0 It’s in to the Clyde Best Café to meet Essex Steve, up for his first game since the Ludek Miklosko inspired draw denied Man United the title in 1995. Then it’s on to the stadium where Fraser and Nigel are with The Gav has replaced Matt, away living Danishly. While Michae...

More bad news is that Michail Antono is out for the rest of the season, It looked a serious injury when he pulled up against Swansea and you wonder if he was rushed back too soon. Antonio has managed to perform consistently well in a poor side and will be a big loss. So what do West Ham do witho...

West Ham 1 Swansea City 0 Inside the (Clyde) Best Cafe, Nigel and Matt are discussing the anniversary of the 1992 general election, as you do, while Lisa has opted for a falafel wrap (surely not as good as Ken’s cheesy chips wrap?) and CQ, on a romantic lunch date with Nigel, announces herself we...

So much for the vote of confidence. The Daily Telegraph claims that West Ham board are looking at plans to sack Slaven Bilic and employ a 'continuity manager' should West Ham lose at home to Swansea. Like most fans I like Slaven "and all that, " but if West Ham went down he would have go, though...

Swansea City 1 West Ham 4 A fantastic Christmas present from South Wales. West Ham also managed to get Bob Bradley Santa's sack, such is the ignominy of shipping four goals at home to the Irons on Boxing Day. Swansea looked pretty dire, but in the past we've struggled to beat poor teams so this i...

The latest press talk is that West Ham are preparing a £20million bid for Swansea City's Andre Ayew. He scored 12 goals in 35 games for the Swans last season, which is a decent return. Hammers fans might recall his crisp finish from a great cross for Swansea's second goal in the 4-1 home tonking...

West Ham 1 Swansea City 4 Green Street is full of nostalgic fans with cameras photographing the John Lyall gates for our last Saturday match at the Boleyn. First off it’s a visit to the Newham Bookshop where a Belgian Iron wants copies of Hammers in the Heart and Irons in the Soul . Then it’s on...
Hammers in the Heart - Mon Dec 21 6:39 PM
Swansea City 0 West Ham 0 Managed to see the second half of this in the Auld Triangle while preparing for our neighbours' party. Looked a pretty rubbish game, with Swansea having 73 per cent of possession. But there was still some encouragement in a determined defensive performance, with James Co...

West Ham 3 Swansea City 1 Ken’s Café is covered in seasonal tinsel as myself, daughter Lola and her pal Fernanda dine on isotonic sausage, egg chips and beans. We move on to the Newham Bookshop where Vivien tells us that Russell Brand will be dropping in to sign copies of his book Revolution , pr...

Chico Flores has been winding us up again on Twitter. The Swansea thespian writes: "I'm a bit tired of the strong insults from the West Ham fans. Whoever doesn't see the aggression in that action is blind. They should be more preoccupied with the ugly way their team play football always making ve...

West Ham 2 Swansea 0 Nigel and CQ arrive in early in Ken’s Café jet-lagged from a romantic mini-break in Boston, where they’ve been watching the Boston Bruins ice hockey team. I’m with my daughter Nell and her friend Fernanda, fortified by Pret a Manger sandwiches at Kings Cross and a Kit-Kat in...

Swansea City 0 West Ham 0 Another credible point on the road, with WHU having conceded only one goal and a penalty away from home all season. If only we could win at home… Looking at the MOTD highlights we have the better of the first half with Downing having a couple of early efforts and Demel s...

West Ham certainly played like a jaded side at Villa (though why change the side that beat Swansea? Sam being too clever by half). So perhaps the trip to Dubai will refresh the squad, even if it does dent our carbon footprint. Brian Clough used to do the same with Nottingham Forest, so perhaps ou...

West Ham 1 Swansea City 0 In Ken’s Café Nigel and CQ have returned from a mini-break in New York on a morning flight just to see the soccer. Will WHU make their jet-lag even worse? My daughters are pleased to see the chip service back to its normal prompt service as Michael the Whovian arrives t...
Hammers in the Heart - Sun Aug 26 9:42 PM
Swansea City 3 West Ham United 0 It’s up at six am to get the 7.45 am train from Paddington to Swansea, where several West Ham fans are already drinking cans of lager as we set off. The guard threatens to evict some smokers at Cardiff, but there’s good humoured banter with the Swansea fans who...
