News Update!

* We have a new banner! Had to get rid of that UEFA cup shit - it was making me tearful.

** Bobby Zamora has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2011. Bobby has come out and said all he has ever wanted to do is wear the claret n blue shirt and he is delighted to be spending the best part of his career with the club. He also is backing the Argentine pair to come good stating that they fit in well during training and are enjoying life at Upton Park despite recent results.

*** A Hammers legend has signed our guestbook! Steve Bacon was the club photographer for many years and I have fond memories of him walking the perimeter of the pitch with his camera snapping away whilst I stood as a kid on the North Bank. Steve if you are reading this - good luck with your return to photography mate - its an honour to have you grace these pages - your warm comments with regards to this site are greatly appreciated.

International Wrap

* Some of the Brisbane Hammers were present at the Suncorp Stadium last night for the dissapointing 1-1 draw between Australia and Paraguay. We had to wait until the 88th minute to see a goal and the Aussie fans must've felt victory was on the horizon before a calamitous own goal in the dying seconds snatched a draw from the jaws of victory for the Socceroos. The game gave us a chance to see former Hammer Stan Lazaridis make his final appearance in the Green and Gold.

** On the subject of dissapointing internationals, England could only muster up a 0-0 at home to Macedonia last night. Republic of Ireland proved equally inept with a 5-2 loss to.... wait for it.... Cyprus LOL! Wales got thumped 5-1 at home to Slovakia whilst Scotland bucked the British nations' dissapointing weekend causing the biggest upset of the night with 1-0 victory against Les Bleus! The victory vs France puts them top of the group which also contains Italy and Ukraine on a maximum 9 points from 3 games .
