The title is for Arsenal’s to lose and the team seem to be feeling the pressure as the Hammers worked their way back into a game that looked beyond them within the opening minutes. In fact we could have won this encounter if only for the cross bar to deny Antonio late on in the game.

West Ham United 1 Southampton 0 Sunday 2nd April 2023
We beat the Saints because they were worse than us – if we had played Newcastle on 2nd we would have been thrashed just the same. It was a victory that was well needed but one that could not cover up the gapping holes we have in how the team are set up to play and who is on the team sheet week in week out.
West Ham United 4 AEK Larnaca 0 (Aggregate 6-0) Europa Conference League Round of 16 2nd Leg Thursday 16th March 2023
Bowen’s brace at the beginning of the second half should not over shadow Scamacca’s scoring our first goal on the night, bringing his total for the season so far to 8, with help from Larnaca’s Bosnian keeper Piric letting the ball roll under him into the net. The game needed a goal and this was followed by a disallowed goal from Scamacca and for the visitors before Gustavo Ledes was shown a red card for a very poor challenge on Fornals, after the VAR check upgraded the original yellow card.
West Ham United 2 Manchester City 2 15th May 2022
The mould was broken after they made Noble as you will not get a player who will be as dedicated to a team as Mark has been to West Ham, a boyhood fan who grew up in Canning Town supporting the Hammers and living many youngster’s dream of playing for the club you watched as a child from the stands. It has been wonderful seeing so many young fans as well at the stadium and who knows which one those may grow up to play for the club and who have had Noble as their inspiration.
West Ham United 1 Frankfurt 2 Europa League Semi Final 1st Leg 28th April 2022
The pre-match rendition of ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’ and noise from the crowd could not lift the home side despite the fans continuing to sing their support throughout the match. The London Stadium has found its voice in this competition and it sends the hairs on the back of your neck tingling as the crowd stood throughout the match to cheer, chant and sing West Ham on, urging the team to find a goal.
West Ham United 2 Leeds United 3 16th January 2022
But could the Hammers at least rescue a draw? With growing purpose the Hammers began to push further forward with Vlasic and Fornals making way for Masuaku and Yarmolenko to see out the final 20mins of what was becoming a more frantic encounter. So, it was a final chance falling to in form Bowen who could only chest over a cross that should have been headed firmly into the Leeds net to salvage something from a match that had 2 goals ruled out for offside, one for each team, that raised Leeds to 15th place, whilst the Hammers hang precariously in 4th anxiously watching results of those teams around us.
West Ham United 3 Chelsea 2 4th December 2021
Wins don’t come better that this and the end of match celebrations reverberated in and around Westfield until the small hours with fans singing ‘West Ham are massive wherever we go’ punctuated with cries of ‘Irons!’ ‘Irons’ and ‘Stick your blue flag …..’ Well, you know how that one goes eh?

Rice’s display was once again a major plus, the 19-year-old showing composure in a defensive midfield role as he adds another string to his bow after showing his talent as a central defender.
From the Vaults: West Ham United v Leicester City 20th April 2021
Almost 2 years ago at the London Stadium the Hammers looked on course for a win after Lucas Perez, a 78th minute replacement for Arnautovic, had turned in a rebound after fellow substitute Pedro Obiang had hit the post in the 82nd minute.
