Sixer Says: two cheers for Watmore as Under 23s lose to West Ham

WESTHAMhomeFT

  Monsieur Salut writes: in fact there were many more cheers for a decent 70-minute outing for Duncan.

If Pete Sixsmith offers two cheers not three, it is because he also noticed a […]

He was not a Sunderland supporter but a Hammer through and through and right down to his solid East End roots. He was a treasured colleague, both in London and Abu Dhabi, and his presence, sparkle and wit […]

  John McCormick writes: I get regular abuse banter from certain people who believe Anfield is a good value, top-class stadium. It isn’t, as I keep telling them, and now there’s proof.

John McCormick writes: It has been a strange day. First, an e-mail from Pete Sixsmith asking if I’d voted and including and article.

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: post match, on radio five live, Fabio Borini hinted at changing-room issues. When asked to elaborate he talked about injuries but did nothing else to explain. Was something lost in translation? You might think not, given the way  David Moyes manages to suggest everything’s hunky-dory in his post-match missive: (more…)

The £5.53m joke: tell Crystal Palace, West Ham £40m couldn’t buy Defoe

Gizza job, Jermain. I'd be a great PA

Like most people, I have no idea what Jermain Defoe’s contract says about his right to leave Sunderland in the event of this or that bid being made.
