Parish Notice

Welcome to Hugh Southon of 'Claret & Hugh'

I’m delighted to welcome Hugh Southon to our merry band of contributors to West Ham Till I Die. Hugh runs the excellent Claret & Hugh blog, is a journalist by trade and will add a new perspective to what we do. His own blog is very newsy and if you already read his blog you will know that he has broken a number of exclusives over the last few months.

When he writes his first piece I hope you will give him a warm welcome.

In the meantime, those of you with a WHUFC TV subscription might like to report on this video featuring Jack Sullivan in the club website’s new Fanzone section. I’m too mean to part with £4.99 a month…


Poll

Poll: Select Your West Ham Team 1980-1990

Back in 2009, I asked you to rate every player who had played for the club to any meaningful extent since the 1950s. We then came up with a team of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s. Well, four years on I thought we’d repeat the exercise as I imagine a majority of you weren’t reading the site at that point. The aim is on New Year’s Day to publish teams of the decade and then an all time West Ham team.

The format is simple. Just rank each player out of ten.

And if you missed the earlier ones, voting is still open.

Transfer Gossip

His Name is Rio, Should He Come Back to Upton Park?

Rumours abound that former West Ham starlet Rio Ferdinand may make a dramatic return to Upton Park during the coming transfer window. He’s been told he won’t be a first choice at Manchester United and his contract finishes at the end of the season. It is thought he will probably retire at that point, at the age of 35. However, a last hurrah at his spiritual home might well give him a new lease of life.

From West Ham’s point of view we get a player with a proven track record and if he is signed on a ‘pay as you play’ basis until the end of the season it is difficult to see what there is to lose. With Winston Reid playing a similar game to Rio, he could clearly learn a lot from him, as could some of our younger defenders.

Would Rio be a good signing for us? Vote HERE

OK, over the next three days I’m going to attempt to take your mind off our current travails. Back in 2009, I asked you to rate every player who had played for the club to any meaningful extent since the 1950s. We then came up with a team of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s.
