Where are you going that Bournemouth is the halfway point?

Now, dear readers, this is the one. No, I mean the ONE. The epic journey across the country, that everyone said I was mad to do. Frodo and Sam have nothing on this epic quest. Even some of the players told me it was ok to miss this one. Not…

Julia Simic Offical West Ham Ambassador

International Break.  Well, not an official one, but my personal one to South Africa. I know, such a hard life! To make up for my lack of insight into the Birmingham game, (Ellen White wasn't playing so how insightful could I truly…

Unintentionally Stalked by Siobhan Chamberlain

Chelsea was going to be a big one. With our goalkeeper, left back, and captain having all signed from Chelsea certain scores were bound to be settled. Additionally, with our number seven in a very serious relationship with their twenty-three,…

Middle Class control over Working Class Lesuire time : normal footbal banter

The International break was back upon us and thankfully only in Nottingham, so I had the more socially acceptable wake-up call of 07:30 on a Saturday morning. 'you do know that it's on TV right? You don't actually have to go.’ I glared…

Kate didn’t do that, did she? Part Two

I am going to try and keep this one shorter and sweeter than Part One. LIVERPOOL HOME We lost 1-0. The end. Not really, just my poor attempt at humour. Liverpool were an unknown entity this season. The biggest casualties in the season’s…

Mum was not a fan of the women’s game. For many reasons. It just didn’t have the excitement, the passion, the drama and the drive that the men’s game did for her.  She has tried (or more likely I had forced her to try). She’d…

You could have gone to Harry Potter World!! But you didn’t.

And now for something completely different. As mentioned, this is going to be a blog about the women’s game as a whole not just West Ham Women.   June 2019 is going to be a big month. The Women’s World Cup in France and England…

Aren't You Supposed To Ask Them For Photos?

It felt like an age since I had pulled on the Claret and Blue. Life and circumstances had conspired to keep me away: the enforced international break, a third 10k run I had convinced myself was a good idea, and the fact I had no holiday left…

Where The Hell is Borehamwood

I got the idea back in September, but it’s taken me to the New Year to get going with this. I’ve been called crazy ( Although for someone who moved out to Germany for football, you’d think Mary Earps would understand 😉 ). Others…
