Hammers in the Heart - Tue Feb 20 3:39 PM
Enjoyed Marko Arnautovic's TV interview after the Watford win when he opined: "I want just to show the critical people, all the people who don’t think I’m good, that I’m good and I want to give everything for this club, that’s why I play football. I’m surprised some people don’t like me. I think...

West Ham 2 Watford 0 The Overground is closed and so too is the Best Café, awaiting refurbishment. So it’s off to meet Matt and Lisa at Gerry’s Kitchen, which is closed, due to “operational issues”. So we head off for hasty noodles at Chopstix in the Stratford Centre, where my daughter Lola joins...

Manchester City 2 West Ham1 It's off to the Stapleton Tavern with Matt and Lisa in the hope that it's a lucky pub, as I saw West Ham win at Man City at this very boozer back in 2015-16. We arrive anticipating a drubbing but the first half is a pleasant surprise. A down to the bare bones West Ham...

I'm not sure the away fans at Watford should have had a go at Andy Carroll, with chants of "Andy Carroll we left 'cos you'e shit!" and "You'e not fit to wear the shirt!" (though this was more against the team as a whole). Big Andy has wound up some fans after the Liverpool match by suggesting tha...

So who was it who phoned 999? West Ham fans have been urged not to dial 999 by the police because losing to Watford is not a genuine emergency. Though presumably the police will accept Tony Pulis being on the market as a valid reason for calling them up…

Watford 2 West Ham 0 It’s off to Watford Junction with Matt, where we trek across a sleepy Watford and home fans offer us directions rather than trying to attack us. Well, they say it;s a family club. We enjoy a cup of Rosie Lee in Domenic’s Café, before meeting my old school pal Mark at the stad...
Hammers in the Heart - Fri Mar 3 4:36 PM
Sitting in row D at Watford we had a good view of Sofiane Feghouli. He was up against a giant defence, but encouragingly he seems to be adapting to the physical demands of the Premier League. He was always involved on the right flank, won several free kicks and looked up for a battle, even when...
Hammers in the Heart - Tue Feb 28 10:34 AM
Sad to hear that Watford's Mauro Zarate will be out for a lengthy spell after damaging his cruciate ligament on Saturday. The former Hammer was impressive for the first half hour and when he took a corner in front of the West Ham fans he even received a chant of "Oh, Mauro Zarate!" (to the tune o...
Hammers in the Heart - Sun Feb 26 10:17 AM
Watford 1 West Ham 1 It’s a twenty-minute walk from Watford Junction to Vicarage Road, which in places looks more like a set of new-build flats than a stadium. I’m with my mate Mark and his Watford-supporting sons among the home fans. We’re sitting in the Sir Elton John Stand, which has the words...
Hammers in the Heart - Fri Feb 24 5:31 PM
Off to Watford tomorrow where my old schoolmate Mark has acquired a ticket. Seems like we'll be next to the Sir Elton John Stand, so we just have to hope that WHU's Rocket Man Andy Carroll recovers from a groin niggle. Or at least tells Slaven, I 'm Still Standing . Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest...
Hammers in the Heart - Fri Jan 27 3:22 PM
It will be interesting to see how Mauro Zarate fares at Watford. He was clearly high-maintenance, but you do wonder if West Ham might have made it to sixth had he stayed last season. He was certainly more of a threat than his replacement Emmanuel Emenike. Bilic at last appeared to be getting the...
Hammers in the Heart - Thu Jan 19 2:40 PM
It's proving very difficult to get away tickets these days. Just missed out on Watford tickets because you needed 13 priority points. And there are a huge amount of times to factor in now. Depending on your points and status there were 17 different times to apply listed in the programme and if a...
Hammers in the Heart - Sun Sep 11 10:57 AM
West Ham 2 Watford 4 The news in the Clyde Best Café is that Nigel likes the grub and is muttering approvingly about coffee machines and the café having a gents, as Michael of the Moral Compass accuses him of possible disloyalty to the memory of Ken’s Café. My daughter Nell still thinks the chips...
Hammers in the Heart - Thu Apr 21 1:17 PM
West Ham United 3 Watford 1 Michael the Whovian has pre-ordered his big breakfast through Lisa as we join the Ken’s Café queue. Nigel’s running late at the office and Matt is working. Statto Lisa reveals that Andy Carroll’s penalty at Leicester was our first away penalty for five years. Meanwhile...
Hammers in the Heart - Sat Oct 31 6:58 PM
Watford 2 West Ham 0 Oh dear. A Halloween horror from the Hammers. Was always worried about this after the Champions League was mentioned this week. At least Bilic has been honest in his appraisal that we were complacent and the performance was unacceptable, with WHU second best from the start. A...
