    94: Here's to another 125 years of mediocrity

    94: Here's to another 125 years of mediocrity

    125 years ago, Thames Ironworks FC was founded.

    125 years later, West Ham United is honouring that great day by embarking on yet another relegation dog fight. We're all used to this, but it just never gets any easier. 

    It's our 125th birthday that kicks this week's episode off, with Will giving us all a fantastic speech at the beginning that will have you crying into your drink of choice while you listen to our podcast.

    But it doesn't stop there this week, with an action-packed episode that includes guests David Chidgey from Chelsea FanCast and Sean from the London Magpies and, of course, the obligatory Rogue Mystery Players Quiz. 

    The boys also discuss Aaron Cresswell's comments on Declan Rice, David Moyes' apparent blind optimism, the new home kit, which should be sponsored by Marmite, and much, much more. 

    So make yourself comfortable and enjoy what is a relatively positive and upbeat show, ahead of what will no doubt be a depressing 180 minutes against Chelsea and Newcastle this week.

    93: Cannot Barrera losing to Spurs ft. Mirror's Alex Milne

    93: Cannot Barrera losing to Spurs ft. Mirror's Alex Milne

    West Ham have lost 2-0 twice in a row since the last podcast. 

    Wolves made light work of the Hammers at the London Stadium before VAR set Spurs on their way to their win thanks to a Tomas Soucek own goal and a Harry Kane strike when West Ham were ‘pushing for the equaliser’.

    Will Pugh is joined by Tom Edwards and James Jones straight after the Tottenham game to record the podcast and try and see some light among the darkness.

    Ryan Fredericks seemed to strengthen Jeremy Ngakia’s negotiating position as it looks like the young right-back is on his way out on June 30.

    The lads argue about which of the pair was least bad in the two games since the Premier League restarted and also question David Moyes’ seemingly unimaginative approach. 

    Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen provided the only real positive talking points in North London but West Ham’s survival prospects are looking slimmer and slimmer as each week goes by.

    The guys are joined by Tottenham fan and sports journalist from the Mirror Alex Milne to discuss the game and both teams’ chances of achieving their end of season goals.

    And of course, the Rogue Mystery Players Quiz is back.

    92: Wolves preview & the Irish Abdoulaye Faye - Ft. Irons DJ Russ Budden

    92: Wolves preview & the Irish Abdoulaye Faye - Ft. Irons DJ Russ Budden

    It's been a long while since we've been able to actually talk about football being played, but this week we're finally able to preview our Premier League meeting with Wolves this coming weekend.

    Three months have passed since we could talk about what's going on on the pitch, so James Jones, Will Pugh and Tom Edwards took full advantage by planning an action-packed show to celebrate!

    This week, the boys were joined by London Stadium DJ and face of the fantastic YouTube channel My Hammers XI, Russ Budden, who discussed his story behind launching one of the most popular pieces of West Ham content on the web right now, and also what he thinks might happen when Wolves visit East London on Saturday.

    And then the boys were joined by Sam from the Wolves 77 Podcast, who didn't hold back in reminding us that Wolves are very much on a journey that we all wish West Ham was on. 

    And then there's the West Ham Mystery Players quiz, where James and Tom go head-to-head in a friendly competition - this week it's James' turn to embarrass himself!

    91: Is Jeremy staying or Ngoing & the Irish Rufus Brevett

    91: Is Jeremy staying or Ngoing & the Irish Rufus Brevett

    Jeremy Ngakia looks set to leave West Ham after David Moyes expressed disappointment at his decision to walk away from negotiations.
    The 19-year-old is reportedly after £20k-a-week while the Hammers are only offering £5k plus bonuses and the stalemate means he will depart the London Stadium on June 30.
    Will Pugh, Tom Edwards and James Jones have different opinions on the matter but are united in their joy at the news Tomas Soucek has extended his deal until the end of the season and seems keen to stay long term if West Ham stay up.
    The lads worry about what a big IF that really is as the battle against relegation gets going again in less than two weeks.
    The Rogue Mystery Players quiz is back by popular demand and the boys get into the pros and cons of a Premier League salary cap.

    90: Football's back, an emotional farewell & Jack Wilshere censorship

    90: Football's back, an emotional farewell & Jack Wilshere censorship

    We're back. Football's back. Normal life is (kind of) back.
    There's still a long way to go before we can really say normal life is back, but the recent easing of lockdown restrictions gave given us all a bit of hope that there is light at the end of the lockdown tunnel.
    And after a week's break, we're back to bring you all the latest West Ham talking points. This time as very proud award nominees. Yep, that's right, we've been nominated for Best Podcast at the Football Content Awards and we couldn't be prouder. Thank you to everyone who listens to our ramblings each week and helps support the show - it really does mean a lot. We've left details on how you can vote for us below and on our Twitter page.
    But amidst the euphoria of an award nomination comes some very sad news. The amazing Charlie Hawkins has decided to move on to pastures new and will no longer be a part of the We Are West Ham movement. Charlie has been an integral part of the success of this podcast up to now and we would like to thank him for all his hard work and dedication. He joined as our presenter and leaves as our friend.
    Replacing Charlie on a permanent basis is Tom Edwards, who has been involved in the show sporadically over the years but has accepted our offer to join full time. A very worthy addition to the team, indeed. Welcome, Tom!
    So on this week's show, the lads say farewell to Charlie, welcome (back) Tom and then run the rule on all the big West Ham related headlines. From the return of football to season ticket refunds to imposing a Jack Wilshere censorship on the podcast to the potential of renewed fan protests, the lads touched on everything as we begin to countdown to our match with Wolves in a few weeks' time.
    As always, thank you to everyone who listens every week and if you haven't already, please make sure you subscribe, rate and review us on whatever podcast platform you're listening on. We really do appreciate the support.
    If you would like to vote for us in the Football Content Awards, you can do so by clicking here (https://footballcontentawards.com/2020-voting/) and selecting WE ARE WEST HAM PODCAST from the drop-down menu under the Best Podcast category, and you can also tweet the following sentence...
    "I am voting for @WeAre_WestHam in @The_FCAs for #BestPodcast"
    We really do appreciate your help and continued support!
    You can also email us at wearewesthampod@gmail.com and tweet us at @WeAre_WestHam. We love to hear from you, so get in touch!
    See you next week! Irons.

    89: We Are West Ham week off

    89: We Are West Ham week off

    Will Pugh, James Jones and Charlie Hawkins are having a well earned rest this week.
    Unfortunately, the full length episode of the Rogue Mystery Players quiz the lads were hoping to put out this week is proving quite the technical challenge so it is going to have to wait a few more weeks unfortunately. 
    However, if you haven't already, this week would be a great time to go back to episodes 66 and 68 which is the two part Nostalgia Series special Will and quizmaster Reece recorded last summer all about the last season at Upton Park.
    The lads hope everyone is keeping safe and well, get in touch in all the usual places and please review, rate and SUBSCRIBE if you like what we are doing.
