Big Decision on Big Sam
by redhammer on 29 Mar at 22:18
Big Decision on Big Sam This summer the manager of West Ham, Sam Allardyce, will be offered a new deal at The Hammers or a thank you for your hard work and a cheerio. His relationship with the fans has never been simple but with plenty against the appointment from the word go and with promotion at the first time of asking (via the play off's, just) many felt it wasn't good enough with the squad and budget he had at his disposal. First year up and it was a safe and sound season with a 10th place finish with some good and some not so good results. As a result the board reward the gaffer with a new 2 year contract and signed Andy Carroll for a record 15 million breaking the 11m for Jarvis that they purchased for Sam..
Leicester City v West Ham United
by redhammer on 30 Mar at 21:34
West Ham United v Sunderland 04-04-2015. 15.00. The King Power. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game West Ham 1-0 Sunderland Not one for the neutrals....or either set of fans to be honest as it was scrappy with some little chances for either side as one side was fighting for their manager and the other for survival. Sunderland had one plan and that was the long ball to Wickham who played off Fletcher and Defoe and it almost worked with the latter beating Cresswell but blasting well wide to be met with a loud cheer from his former fans. Lee Mason failed to spot Larsson hauling down Nolan when he went to meet a dangerous cross, one that may have later played on his mind. Alex Song smashed in a long range first time effort which was well saved as a rare glimer..

PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles - March update.
by davidg3907 on 27 Mar at 14:26
At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. At the end of the season some will also be split into Home and Away format. BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will ( and indeed did ) inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles but they need to stay in the statistics. However, a few things did come as a surprise. Let’s look at the stats and see what has developed as we are now 3/4 of the way..

My ESPN bracket has predicted all four Elite 8 matchups and my original Final Four from my Tournament Preview (See Here)) was backed at 190/1.
