    Opposition View: "We're gonna beat the c*** out of West Ham" - LIVE from Leverkusen

    Opposition View: "We're gonna beat the c*** out of West Ham" - LIVE from Leverkusen

    West Ham United have yet another historic clash approaching as they take on ‘unbeaten in 41 games Bayer Leverkusen’ in the Europa League quarter-final first leg in Germany on Thursday.
    Will Pugh is out there for the game after his underwhelming trip to Freiburg in the last round ended in a 1-0 defeat. 
    And he caught up with German journalist, podcaster and enormous Bayer Leverkusen fan Kevin Schueren ahead of the match on all things Xabi Alonso, Victor Boniface, the Bundesliga title, the threat of Ultra attacks on West Ham fans, team news and of course any hope David Moyes and the boys have of ending their incredible unbeaten run and reaching a third consecutive European semi-final.

    It's time for peak Moyes-ball and we're so ready for it

    It's time for peak Moyes-ball and we're so ready for it

    It's nice to come out of a game of football without feeling hard done by, wronged and aggrieved by a scandalous VAR decision. This time, we were on the right end of it and it was Wolves fans crying scandal. However, this decision WAS correct and Max Kilman's goal WAS rightly ruled out for offside. No scandal this week. Nothing to see here, Wolves fans.
    It was a huge win and keeps us well in the hunt for another year of European football by virtue of our league position. It was also the perfect result to take into what is without doubt our biggest game of the season so far. We travel to Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday to try and be the first team in 42 games to beat Xabi Alonso's side. If ever there was a need for peak Moyes-ball, which we all know has come under intense scrutiny this season, it's now.
    Will is heading out to Leverkusen and will hopefully be getting an Oppo View before the big game. In the meantime, you've got James and Will reacting to the Wolves game this week and, at the very beginning, James being attacked by his wife and son with Nerf guns!
    As always, thanks for listening!

    Opposition View: Wolves, with Dan Baylis from the Wolves 77 Club Podcast

    Opposition View: Wolves, with Dan Baylis from the Wolves 77 Club Podcast

    It's getting towards the business end of the season and after a good, hard-fought draw against rivals Spurs earlier this week, West Ham are still well in the mix for a fourth consecutive season of European qualification.
    One team threatening to beat us to it, though, is Gary O'Neil's Wolves, who have had a relatively good campaign, if not slightly inconsistent. They're currently three points behind us with a game in hand and, with all the other teams around us having a game advantage over us, there is so much importance in ensuring we continue to pick up points between now and the end of the season.
    Joining us this week is Dan Baylis from the Wolves 77 Club Podcast to give us his thoughts on his beloved Wolves ahead of Saturday.

    Football isn't fun anymore, ft. Ricky Sacks from Last Word On Spurs

    Football isn't fun anymore, ft. Ricky Sacks from Last Word On Spurs

    West Ham somehow managed to throw away a 3-1 lead with 20 minutes to go at Newcastle to lose 4-3. 
    And it depends who you talk to as to who was to blame. 
    Host Will Pugh gives his verdict on this latest podcast during the small window of time between that St James’ Park defeat and the mouthwatering home Premier League clash against Tottenham on Tuesday. 
    Spoiler alert, he blames the dodgy officials for awarding Newcastle a penalty even though Anthony Gordon fouled Kalvin Phillips, not the other way around, rather than David Moyes. 
    He also gives his opinion on Phillips’ disastrous start to life at West Ham and the midfielder sticking his middle finger up to the ‘fan’ who waited by the bus and shouted ‘useless’ at the England man as he left the stadium.
    Ricky Sacks from the Last Word on Spurs also chimes in with his thoughts on Tuesday’s game with the Hammers trying to stay 7th and Tottenham looking to leapfrog Aston Villa into fourth. 
    As always, thanks for listening!

    Record breaking nights in Europe and record breaking checks in the Premier League

    Record breaking nights in Europe and record breaking checks in the Premier League

    It was a relatively successful week in the life of West Ham United. A club-record 5-0 victory over Freiburg in the Europa League set up a third consecutive European semi-final, before a hugely controversial 1-1 draw with high-flying Aston Villa in the Premier League.
    The controversy was, as always, sparked by VAR and their failure to exercise their own 'Clear and Obvious' guidelines. The second disallowed goal was indeed handball, but the first? There is no conclusive evidence that the ball hit Michail Antonio's hand, so the onfield decision should've stood. Instead, VAR failed to do its job and ruled out the goal on what appears to be a hunch. Clear and obvious? Yeah, right.
    This week we discuss both of last week's games before the international break, and also go over the quarter-final draw against the unbeatable Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.
    We'll be off next week but will have an Opposition View for you ahead of the trip to Newcastle.
    As always, thanks for listening!

    Opposition View: Aston Villa, with BBC Sport reporter Tim Warwood

    Opposition View: Aston Villa, with BBC Sport reporter Tim Warwood

    West Ham are through to the Europa League quarter-final after an emphatic 5-0 thrashing of Freiburg in the second leg on Thursday.
    And it’s another trip to Germany for the Hammers as they drew Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen in the quarters. 
    That tie will kick off on April 11 but before that, it’s back to the day job with Aston Villa visiting in the Premier League on Sunday.
    A stressed-out Will, fresh from booking his flights to Germany, complete with Cheltenham hangover speaks to legendary opposition view guest and sports journalist Tim Warwood about his beloved Villa’s trip to the London Stadium. 
    And as always, Tim has come armed with a voice note from his fellow Villa faithful on the Holte End.
    As always, thanks for listening!
