Millwall v West Ham United
Thursday, 15th September 2011
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy is actually away on a Saga Cruise on the SS Marco Boogers which is currently touring somewhere where he’ll complain about the food, water, tea, heat and anything else he can think of while he’s not chasing after rich widows. Which is exactly what he’s like when he’s at home really...''

West Ham United v Portsmouth
Friday, 9th September 2011
by Preview Percy
''Now that the schools have gone back, the police are baffled as to why the levels of anti-social behaviour have actually increased in the vicinity of a certain care home. We're not ones to point the finger but surely the fact that Preview Percy is back from the international break cannot be wholly coincidental. Meanwhile here's the old sod's ramblings on this weekend's match against Portsmouth.... ..''

So long, Scotty
Wednesday, 31st August 2011
by Daniel Nussbaum

Nottingham Forest v West Ham United
Friday, 26th August 2011
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy has spent the last few days banging his head against the wall muttering "It's Mansfield 1969 all over again". So it's been business as usual then for the doddery old twit, who just had time to prepare this look at Sunday's match at the City Ground before he was carted away for his therapy session..''

A letter to Sam
Thursday, 25th August 2011
by Fraggle
''There are times when, as a West Ham fan, I despair. Despite the great times I've had and the pride I take in wearing crossed hammers, and even after 40 years of loyal support, I sometimes look on from the sidelines and think to myself, oh dear oh dear, what on Earth was that? ..''


Width and pace, our saving grace?
Tuesday, 23rd August 2011
by Daniel Nussbaum
''It was there for all to see. Max Gradel, a primary West Ham target over the summer and gifted left winger, was wreaking havoc down our right hand side. Leeds' young Ivorian winger was exciting, dangerous and attack minded...''


West Ham United v Aldershot Town (Take Two)
Tuesday, 23rd August 2011
by Preview Percy
''When we popped in to pick up Preview Percy's latest offering we were greeted by a young lady who told us he was busy having treatment for his rheumatism. The funny thing is we're pretty sure that he doesn't have rheumatism. We're also pretty sure that wasn't a proper nurse's uniform either. Anyway he did leave the following scribbled on the back of an old betting slip......''


West Ham United v Leeds United
Friday, 19th August 2011
by Preview Percy
''We're not saying that Preview Percy went looting during the recent disturbances, but when we went to visit him this week there were a lot of suspiciously new tartan blankets scattered around the rest home for the bewildered where he spends his time when the pubs aren't open. Here the grumpy one takes time out from moaning about how easy 'A' levels have become to take a look at this weekend's visit of Leeds United.... ..''


Watford v West Ham United
Monday, 15th August 2011
by Preview Percy

Doncaster Rovers v West Ham United
Friday, 12th August 2011
by Preview Percy
''As you can imagine, being an elder statesman Preview Percy had more than a few things to say about the recent outbreaks of civil disorder.

West Ham United v Aldershot Town
Monday, 8th August 2011
by Preview Percy
''Preview Percy is the sort of person who writes letters to the BBC about the programme “Grumpy Old Men” on the grounds that the participants are too cheerful. So you can imagine his reaction when we turned up at his rest home and told him that relegation would mean taking part in the first round of the League Cup and would he mind awfully writing another preview even though he’d only just finished the last one. Here’s his look at this week’s match against Aldershot Town.......''


West Ham United v Cardiff City
Friday, 5th August 2011
by Preview Percy
''We turned up at Preview Percy’s rest home in the hope that it was one of those that had been sold off during the close season and the occupants moved on without leaving a forwarding address. Unfortunately for you he’s still there and he’s still as barking as ever. Still, at a cost of a packet of Werther’s Originals a week it’s cheaper than paying someone to do a proper preview. Just. This week the old so and so takes a look at our opening match of the season against Cardiff City.......''

by Ian Sherman
''A couple of years ago, in one of the transfer windows, my brother and I were discussing who we thought would be leaving West Ham. The discussion came around to Matthew Upson...''

That good ol' West Ham way
Wednesday, 6th July 2011
by Kit Robinson
''So what is it, the West Ham way? Were West Ham ever this slick, great passing side that many of our fans believe we are? Is it a myth? Or are we living in a parallel footballing universe?..''
