We have a Europa Conference League Cup Final to look forward to, a better finish in the Premier League than we thought only a few weeks ago, but we have also seen the last home game featuring our Hammer of the Year captain Declan Rice.

West Ham United 2 Arsenal 2 16th April 2023
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

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.

West Ham United 1 Chelsea 1 Saturday 11th February 2023
Fabianski was excellent in goal pulling off some great saves and commanding his box and Bowen was also lively down the right and around the area working well with Coufal, who seems to have found some form and looking more like his old self.

West Ham said farewell to David Gold, a life long Hammer, with a respectful tribute to the joint chairman who was born in the shadow of Upton Park and even played for the youth team as a promising youngster between the ages of 13 and 16.
