Lee Bowyer

Squad Number: 29
Position: Midfielder
Born: 3rd Jan 1977 (London)
Signed: 8th Jun 2006 (£0)
Contract: Details unknown
Previous Club: Newcastle United

Bad boy Bowyer returned to East London in the summer of 2006 after three years in exile at Newcastle.

Alan Pardew took a huge gamble re-signing a player who made little impression during his earlier brief spell with the Hammers (although in all fairness his six month stint in 2003 was hampered by a succession of injuries), with almost half of fans in a KUMB poll voting against his return.

But the controversy that dogged Bowyer's early years has all but disappeared in recent seasons (the on-field punch-up with team-mate Kieron Dyer aside) and Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder admitted he was sad to see the former Charlton trainee leave the North East.

2008/09 Match Notes & Ratings

1-3 v Everton (h) 8th November 2008
by East Stand Martin

Not as influential as Parker when in the middle he “did a job” on the right after the reshuffle before, like parker, he ran out of steam.

1-1 v Middlesbrough (a) 1st November 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Boa Morte, 85) Another who got through a fair bit of work and was unlucky to find Turnbull in good form.

4-1 v Macclesfield Town (h) 27th August 2008
by Graeme Howlett

Absolutely shocking. The fact he scored a goal shouldn't disguise the fact his passing was off and he got outmuscled most of the game in midfield.

 

2007/08 Match Notes & Ratings

1-1 v Birmingham City (h) 9th February 2008
by East Stand Martin

Some good late runs in the first half but faded as an influence in the second half. The sending off was a complete and utter joke.

1-0 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd February 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Noble, 73) Picked up a harsh booking, won some, lost some and never really stamped his authority on the match.

1-0 v Liverpool (h) 30th January 2008
by East Stand Martin

Was quietly effective without ever bossing the game.

0-1 v Manchester City (a) 16th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

He produced some lovely touches at times, and was always willing to link play or try to burst beyond Ashton. He was unlucky not to score I felt.

2-1 v Fulham (h) 12th January 2008
by Gordon Thrower

(replaced Etherington, 83) Looked ok but wasn’t really on long enough to get a mark.

0-0 v Manchester City (h) 5th January 2008
by Jacob Steinberg

(replaced Mullins, 75) Back from injury, he had little time to get involved.

(replaced Mullins, 75) Glad to see him back though he didn’t really add much in the short time he was on in this match.

5-0 v Derby County (a) 10th November 2007
by Gordon Thrower

A fine performance and his goals from runs from the deep were echoes of his heyday. A performance made even more remarkable following the revelation that he is yet another of the injured with the oh-so-in-fashion groin operation (this season’s “metatarsal”?) due this week.

1-1 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 4th November 2007
by Graeme Howlett

A gutsy performance typified by a superb tackle against Diouf late on to prevent the African scoring.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 30th October 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Put in some big challenges but provided little in the final third.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by Alex Shilling

Good effort, good distribution, improving with every game.

0-1 v Aston Villa (a) 6th October 2007
by East Stand Martin

More than held his own against bad boy Reo-Coker.

0-1 v Arsenal (h) 28th September 2007
by Josh Tappin

Played well. Good cross for Deano's chance.

3-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 15th September 2007
by Gordon Thrower

Is beginning to make those late runs from the deep that have been his trade mark in the past – fine finish for the goal.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

Followed up last week’s goal with a decent, industrious performance. Missed a sitter but set up Bellamy’s goal well.

3-0 v Reading (a) 1st September 2007
by East Stand Martin

One of the few disappointments on the day – fine ball for the first goal but little else that he tried subsequently came off. Another who should have scored.

2-1 v Bristol Rovers (a) 28th August 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Bright and committed, and possibly our best all-round performer on the night.

1-1 v Wigan Athletic (h) 25th August 2007
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Mullins, 65) Nicely taken goal and got into good positions on a number of occasions.

(Replaced Mullins, 65) We thought Carlos Tevez waited an age for his first goal- this guy's waited four years! Good finish and a glimpse of the old Lee Bowyer in that moment.

Shocking.

His presence in the team baffles me. What is there for? He has to go as I cannot put up with much more of his weak, slow and dirty style.

1-0 v Arsenal (a) 7th April 2007

Still to break his duck in front of goal but Lehmann did well to keep that statistic intact.

2-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 31st March 2007
by Jacob Steinberg

He passed well in the first half, but lacks the ability to get up and down the right flank. An ordinary display, but one full of effort.

2-0 v Middlesbrough (h) 31st March 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Still looking a little off the pace; got stuck in as per usual but didn't offer much of a threat.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (a) 17th March 2007
by Graeme Howlett

Not in the game at all, huffed and puffed and - dare one say it - looked as if his days are numbered.

3-4 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 4th March 2007
by East Stand Martin

Poor. Far more interested in injuring Spurs Players. Gave away penalty. A poor return.

0-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

A lot of running about, the main purpose of which seemed to be to get needlessly involved in a series of niggles.

1-0 v Manchester United (h) 17th December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Lots of effort and came in with impressive number of vital defensive headers.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Nick Bull

Should have scored in the first half, very average performance.

0-2 v Everton (a) 3rd December 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

Anonymous, lost the ball too often and is just a bit slow.

1-0 v Sheffield United (h) 25th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Seemed a yard off the pace and slipped over a lot – I know it was wet but other players didn’t seem to have the same problem.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Nick Bull

His efforts unfortunately did not contribute to anything noteworthy.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Another who got little reward for his efforts – Dean being particularly lenient in regard of some of the late challenges that went his way. There again, given the fact that Dean regards a broken jaw as ok where Bowyer’s concerned we should be thankful for small mercies.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Struggled to get into the game, although against one of the best midfields in the world; nothing to be ashamed of.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

Sprayed the ball around nicely but to little effect. Tried to support Zamora.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

Brought in as the fifth man in midfield, Bowyer did a fine job keeping tabs on Arsenal's central midfield. Seemed a little 'blowy' at times but that was no doubt due to his recent injury and spell on the sidelines.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Got through a lot of hard work between the boxes before being sacrificed in the tactical switch that brought Teddy and Marlon into the fray.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 29th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Benayoun, 81) Back from injury and real competition for those who have strolled through games of late.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Another who battled gamely. Some of the treatment being dished out to him (yes you again Parker) is blatantly designed to wind him up. So far he’s kept his temper.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Nick Bull

Nearly embarrassed Given with a long range effort, other than that a lot of effort with little reward.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by East Stand Martin

Got stuck in against his former team-mates but struggled to make an impact. The 'audacious' attempt at goal was a beautiful thing though.

0-2 v Newcastle United (h) 17th September 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

For me, wasted on the right. He doesn’t have the mobility to play there- reminds me of Beckham in his last days for England. Best position is central midfield where he will be able to get more involved.

0-1 v Palermo (h) 14th September 2006
by East Stand Martin

Good solid run-out in the light of no little stick from start to finish. Tired visibly before being replaced.

Better from Bowyer – his experience aided his game. Shouldn’t have been taken off.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Won the ball well but often seemed at a loss as to what to do with it. Often drawn in side when width might have been useful.

1-1 v Aston Villa (h) 10th September 2006
by Nick Bull

Sadly morelike the Bowyer of 2003, not the one that started the season so well.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Nick Bull

A quiet game that will be remembered for his second half miss.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Solid enough game without dominating. Really should have scored – in fact he probably ought to have nearly as many as Bobby this season.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Not as effective as he had been against Charlton. Probably because, like the rest of us, he had to spend much of the game watching the ball pass over at him 30,000 feet.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by East Stand Martin

He was exceptional on Saturday against Charlton but the game seemed to pass him by a little tonight. Like his two fellow midfielders he struggled to cope with the extra man and Watford's quick, incisive passing. Improved a fair bit after he moved to the right when Pardew went 4-4-2.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by Nick Bull

Had a point to prove. Did more than that. Super debut, unlucky not to score in the move of the match.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Did more in 90 minutes than in the whole of his previous West Ham career to date. Desperately unlucky not to get on the scoresheet at the end of the move of the match.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by East Stand Martin

Had a major hand in all three goals and hit the post himself. Rode out some harsh treatment from one or two Charlton players - a great start to his second spell at the club.

1-1 v Olympiakos (h) 12th August 2006
by Graeme Howlett

Typical Bow, got stuck in and kept it simple.
