Decline and redemption
Wednesday, 18th May 2011
by Upton Larks
''Discussion can be had on where it all started; the decline. Be it failure to invest after the most unforeseen of successful seasons in the heady mid '80s, or maybe it came later, Rio Ferdinand’s departure? Glenn Roeder’s appointment?

by Jon Peach
''Gold and Sullivan attempted to stay up 'on the cheap' this year. That did not involve aquiring a high-profile manager, nor did it involve poaching another club's manager.

By not doing so, they basically backed themselves into a corner meaning that they had to come out like the kids that had been caught looking at their dad's dirty magazines apologising and suggesting that it was all just a big misunderstanding...''

Make or break time for West Ham
Tuesday, 3rd May 2011
by Eddie Smith
''Sunday’s 2-1 defeat by Manchester City summed up West Ham’s season for me as the Hammers once again failed to pick up points – a scenario which leaves them rooted to the bottom of the Barclays Premier League title with just three league matches to go. ..''
