    Losing to West Ham is too embarrassing for Wolves

    Losing to West Ham is too embarrassing for Wolves

    It turns out losing to West Ham was just too embarrassing for the Wolves that they decided to sack Bruno Lage just 24 hours later.

    It was a big, confidence-boosting win on Saturday. Not just for the entire squad but for Guianluca Scamacca and Jarrod Bowen in particular as they both opened their Premier League accounts for the season.

    Now we embark on a busy October, starting with Anderlecht away in the Europa Conference League this Thursday before welcoming Fulham to London Stadium on Sunday.

    This week, James and Will give their views on the win at the weekend before looking ahead to our next couple of fixtures. Will chats to Scott Coyne from the Belgian Football Podcast ahead of Thursday night before he's then joined by talkSPORT's Harry Durham to chat all things Fulham.

    Hopeless England [West Ham] relegated by Italy [Wigan]

    Hopeless England [West Ham] relegated by Italy [Wigan]

    International breaks rarely fill fans with excitement and joy and this one was true to form as England were RELEGATED from their Nations League group after a 1-0 defeat in Italy. Flashbacks of relegations at the hands of Birmingham and Wigan were rife amongst the Hammers fanbase as the painful experience of relegation returned for many of us.

    But all is not lost. Mark Noble has returned to the club as Sporting Director, presumably to save the day. His first job will be to get back in that dressing room and remind everyone what playing for West Ham means because it appears many have forgotten since Mr. West Ham's retirement.

    The lads also look ahead to this Saturday's visit of Wolves and James catches up with sports broadcaster and big Wolves fan, Will Lewis, who gives his thoughts on their season so far. Spoiler alert: it's pretty much identical to ours!

    It's a bit of a shorter episode this week due to not having any games to look back on and with just one to look ahead to, but at least you do get to hear about Will's recent grocery shopping experience. Every cloud!

    Are two seasons of fun all we're gonna get at West Ham?

    Are two seasons of fun all we're gonna get at West Ham?

    Is this the beginning of the end for David Moyes at West Ham? We certainly hope not, but after two incredibly fun seasons since his return, we started this season with just one win from seven Premier League games and have only scored three goals.

    Yes, we're unbeaten in the Europa Conference League but that's not really the issue here. Moyes' stubborn team selections, strange substitutions and reluctance to give most of the summer signings more than 30 minutes a game in the league is beginning to frustrate the fanbase; not least James Jones, who appears to have been broken by this latest defeat.

    This week, Will is far more positive than James as the conversation covers Tomas Soucek's role in this current team, reasons for dropping Jarrod Bowen, worries about the Gianluca Scamacca signing, questions over the level of summer spending if the new players aren't going to be used and so much more!

    The lads also discuss the win against Silkeborg in the Europa Conference League and ponder Moyes' future in east London.

    As always it's a brilliant show, if not a little bit heated this week after what's happened over the last few days!

    A touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

    A touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

    It has been a terribly sad and emotional past few days, not just in the United Kingdom but across the world.

    The passing of Queen Elizabeth II last Thursday was tough to take for so many. To those who adored her the most, she was an incredible woman who represented a beacon of hope and happiness throughout her 70 years on the throne.

    Her passing was confirmed just a couple of hours before West Ham were due to host FCSB in the Europa Conference League, but it was decided the game would still be played. What followed was a moment that will be remembered by all who were in attendance; in what had initially been planned as a minute's silence to remember the Queen before kick-off, fans in attendance instead decided to honour her memory by belting out the national anthem. It was a hair-tingling moment of emotion and respect, which earned West Ham fans the respect and plaudits of neutrals from all over the world as a result.

    A touching tribute to Her Majesty.

    On this week's show, James and Will spend much of it reflecting on the events of the last few days as they try to process the magnitude of what's happened, while also looking back on the 3-1 victory over FCSB.

    Will then has a chat with Football In Denmark's Henry Nicholls for the third time this season as they preview Thursday's trip to Silkeborg, while James previews the visit to Everton with GiveMeSport's Ethan Maddison.

    Absolutely VARcicle

    Absolutely VARcicle

    We've all seen it. We all know it was a complete and utter disgrace. But where do we go from here?
    VAR's existence in the Premier League is becoming more and more laughable with each passing weekend, and the last few days have arguably been its most comical.
    It wasn't just us who were robbed though, as Newcastle, Everton and Arsenal can all feel cheated by the very thing that is supposed to prevent controversial and incorrect decisions being made by referees in the modern era.
    On this week's show, James and Will discuss the situation in detail before looking ahead to this week's games with FCSB in the Conference League and Sunday's visit of Newcastle.

    We also have a double-header Oppostion View this week as Horia and Filip from the Romanian Football Platform join us to preview Thursday's Conference League clash at London Stadium before Will catches up with The Athletic's Newcastle Correspondent, Chis Waugh, to chat all things Newcastle before Sunday.

    As always it's a brilliant show, if not a little bit heated this week after what's happened over the last few days!

    Our season starts now! (or maybe after Spurs and Chelsea)

    Our season starts now! (or maybe after Spurs and Chelsea)

    Finally we're off the mark!

    Our first win and first goal of the Premier League season came at Villa Park on Sunday but, had Steven Gerrard's team been a bit better than they are, it could've been a completely different story.

    David Moyes opted to start with five at the back but following a turgid opening 45 minutes, he decided to revert to the tried and tested 4-2-3-1 formation and suddenly things began to happen.

    Said Benrahma came on at half-time and instantly gave us some energy and intent going forward, and eventually Pablo Forbals expertly directed the winner over Emi Martinez's head, via a Villa defender's knee. Absolute genius finish!

    Now we're off the mark it feels like our season starts now, but we have Spurs and Chelsea next to threaten us building up any kind of momentum.

    This week, James and Will react to the win at Villa as well as discuss our Europa Conference League draw, which includes us coming up against Anderlecht, Silkeborg and FCSB in Group B this season.

    Also on the show, Will chats to Spurs fan and talkSPORT presenter Paul Coyte ahead of Wednesday night's huge game in Stratford, as well as broadcaster Tom Sheen about Chelsea ahead of Saturday afternoon's trip to Stamford Bridge.

    Irons!

N London ,

Keep it up

Wow - 14 minutes in and still talking about your F$&@ing email - cut the waffle Will!!!!

Whammmer ,

Always look forward to this

Best of the lot West Ham wise. Don’t get the Antonio fear - firstly he didn’t go to the last international break so the “ personal trainer “ jolly was a wierd piece of no news? My thoughts were that we were trying to rush the attacks when we broke their block first half / more measured and ultimately won it second half . Enjoy the ride ⚒⚒

Shad0wz 06 ,

Terrible

This is terrible I would not suggest this to any one i don’t think you should carry on!!!!!!!!!!!
