Hammers lose on Pens; Ward signs new contract

West Ham have lost 7-8 on penalties to Osasuna after the teams drew 1-1 in regulation time in the, er, "Out Performance Display Cup". Anton scored but Gabbidon gave away a penalty in the second half. Match report can be found at KUMB. Pictures can be seen at OTT, including the one below.

Elliot Ward has become the latest youngster to have signed a new contract with the Hammers, (hopefully) keeping him at Upton Park till 2009.

It would be remiss of me not to mention the Iranian investor Kia Joorbachian who, according to rumours, is poised to make a £70 million bid for West Ham. Details are sketchy but the bloke reckons he's talked to Brown & Co. - we'll see what happens. He said, "I want to buy a Premiership club and West Ham seem the most likely because they are in London and the price would not be too prohibitive."
