2013-14 Barclays Premier League

Manager : Sam Allardyce

West Ham have bolstered their goalkeeping options by signing Spanish stopper Adrian but failed in another raid on La Liga after it emerged Sevilla rejected their interest in striker Alvaro Negredo. Adrian, who is likely to serve as an understudy to first-choice Hammers stopper Jussi Jaaskelainen, completed his free transfer yesterday after flying to England for a medical earlier this week. The 26-year-old only cemented his position in the Primera Division side last season, but went on to play 32 games, conceding 46 times. Negredo, meanwhile, will not be following his countryman from Andalucia to east London after Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido said he had rejected a £14.5m bid from West Ham for the Spain international.

The 27-year-old scored 31 goals last season but Del Nido insisted they did not need to sell their top marksman, having struck a £17m deal to sell winger Jesus Navas to Manchester City.

"He has four years left on his contract. He is at home here. He has scored a lot of goals and delighted us with his football," Del Nido said of Negredo.

Hammers seal Rat signing

West Ham United are delighted to announce the signing of Romania captain Razvan Rat on a free transfer. The experienced left-back, who has 88 caps to his name, will join the Hammers on a one-year deal, with the Club having an option to extend to two or three years, on 1 July following the expiry of his contract with Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk. Rat, 31, has spent the past decade with Shakhtar, winning seven Ukrainian Premier League titles, four Ukrainian Cups and lifting the UEFA Cup in 2009. He has made 248 appearances for the club, including 57 in the UEFA Champions League. The Piatra-Olt-born defender played eight times in the UEFA Champions League in 2012/13

Hammers capture Downing

West Ham United are delighted to announce the capture of England international winger Stewart Downing. The 29-year-old has moved to the Boleyn Ground from Barclays Premier League rivals Liverpool on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee. Capped 34 times, Downing became the Hammers' fifth summer signing following the arrivals of fellow England star and Reds team-mate Andy Carroll, Romania captain Razvan Rat, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian and promising midfielder Danny Whitehead.

Carroll, 24, cost Liverpool £35m but was loaned to West Ham in August, scoring seven goals in 24 games. The former Newcastle United forward has signed a six-year contract, with an option for a further two years. "It's fantastic for me to be here. I really enjoyed last season, and that shows in me coming back and making it permanent," Carroll said. The transfer fee was agreed in May, but the England international was said to be unsure about a move before a World Cup year. Carroll added: "The fans, the lads and the club itself have been great to me, and what I wanted to do was come back here and play football.

West Ham United got the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League campaign off to a winning start as goals in each half from Joe Cole and Kevin Nolan saw off the challenge of newly-promoted Cardiff City at the Boleyn Ground. Any momentum the Championship winners may have carried into the opening game of the new season was quashed by Joe Cole's 13th minute opener, as he produced an accurate finish following a Matt Jarvis burst down the left. A Kevin Nolan strike 14 minutes from the end confirmed victory, as he matched his first day goal from last year with a right-footed shot from 15 yards.

West Ham United kept their second clean sheet in succession as they collected a useful point at Newcastle United. Genuine chances were few and far between on a wet afternoon on Tyneside as the Hammers kept their hosts at arm's length. Their best effort came right at the death as Sammy Ameobi's attempted cross came back off a post and Yoan Gouffran knocked over the top, but had that gone in it would have been very harsh on Sam Allardyce's men.

West Ham United booked their place in the Capital One Cup Third Round with a 2-1 victory over League Two side Cheltenham Town. The Hammers were made to work for their win by the Robins, who were looking to progress beyond Round Two for the first time in their history. Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison notched for West Ham either side of the break before Matt Richards halved the deficit from the spot. It gave Cheltenham a lifeline just as the Hammers looked to be moving away from them, and despite the setback Sam Allardyce's men still had enough to ease through.

13_09_15 Southampton v. WHU

West Ham United's solid start to the new Barclays Premier League campaign continued with a 0-0 draw at St. Mary’s Stadium. The clean sheet was the Hammers' third from four league games this term and was the second in succession on the road. They did need the woodwork to prevent Rickie Lambert's header from finding the net on a miserable afternoon on the south coast, while Jussi Jaaskelainen made fine saves from Morgan Schneiderlin and Lambert in the second period. The visitors' best chance fell to James Collins six minutes from the end, but he could not keep his shot down from inside the box and the points were destined to be shared.

West Ham United's unbeaten start to the Barclays Premier League season went up in smoke at home to Stoke City. The Hammers were subdued as they tried to make it back-to-back home wins at the start of the new campaign, and Mark Hughes' Stoke side took advantage. Jermaine Pennant's free kick eight minutes from the end made the difference, as Stoke became the first side to score past the Hammers in the league this term. West Ham rarely offered a serious threat at the other end and could have few complaints over the result at the end.

The Hammers twice had the lead wrestled away from them along the way to a 3-2 defeat to Everton at the Boleyn Ground. Ravel Morrison and Mark Noble were on target for the hosts, but their efforts were cancelled out by two stunning free-kicks from Leighton Baines. Noble collected a second booking for the offence which led to the second equaliser just seven minutes from the end, and the Toffees made use of their extra man two minutes later when Romelu Lukaku headed home.

Ricardo Vaz Te headed West Ham United into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup, sealing a 3-2 win over Cardiff City with just two minutes left to play. Sam Allardyce's men made a lightning-fast start, moving into a 2-0 lead with only eight minutes on the clock thanks to Ravel Morrison and Matt Jarvis. But a fine strike out of nothing by Craig Noone on the stroke of half-time gave the visitors hope, and they had the Hammers rocking when Peter Odemwingie levelled things up 15 minutes from the end. West Ham ensured their manager's 100th game in charge would end as a happy occassion.

A Robbie Brady's early penalty sent West Ham United to a 1-0 defeat at Hull City in the Barclays Premier League. Brady converted from the spot with just 12 minutes on the clock after Joey O'Brien was harshly punished for a push on the Irishman. It proved enough to secure a second successive win for the newly-promoted Tigers, who soaked up plenty of West Ham possession as they held on to their lead.

The Hammers had not won at their north London rivals for 14 years prior to this fixture, but they put that record to rest in some style. Winston Reid opened the scoring from a Stewart Downing corner on 66 minutes, before West Ham added another double in quick time. Ricardo Vaz Te made it two on 72 minutes before Ravel Morrison netted a fine solo goal to complete the scoring.

West Ham United notched a brace of penalties to move into the Capital One Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 win at Burnley. Coming just 52 hours after Sunday's draw at Swansea, the Hammers made nine changes to their starting line-up for the Turf Moor tie and had to withstand a strong first half from the hosts. The Hammers improved after the break and eventually saw off the Championship leaders with two spot kicks in the final 14 minutes. Matt Taylor scored the first before Jack Collison, just back from his loan at AFC Bournemouth, made the game safe in stoppage time.

IN THE NEWS : 5 September 2013

West Ham have announced their 25-man squad for the Premier League, including new signings Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing from Liverpool. Sam Allardyce has also named fellow new signings Adrian, Razvan Rat and Danny Whitehead have also been included as the Hammers look to build on their tenth place finish from last season. All Barclays Premier League managers had to submit names to the authorities yesterday following the closure of the summer transfer window. Rules state that clubs can have no more than 17 players who are not deemed to be 'home grown', but may have as many U-21 stars as they like. The Premier League says: "A Home Grown player will be defined as one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21)."

 

Changes can be made, however, when the window reopens again on January 1 2014.

West Ham United failed to take advantage of a dominant first half at Norwich City as the Canaries recovered from a one-goal deficit to triumph 3-1. The Hammers were the only team in the opening period as they bossed proceedings and took the lead through Ravel Morrison. But after handing Gary Hooper a gift-wrapped leveller from the spot after the break, Norwich grew in strength and won the game with two goals inside the final 18 minutes. Robert Snodgrass notched the first, curving a free-kick into the West Ham net before Leroy Fer clinched the points at the death.

West Ham United returned to winning ways with a crucial 3-0 London derby victory over Fulham. The Hammers were without a home success since the opening day of the season, but they put that run to bed in style with three second half goals. Mohamed Diame's deflected 47th minute strike set them on their way before the two Coles made the points safe in the final eight minutes. Carlton tapped home from a Stewart Downing to notch his first goal since rejoining the club, then Joe fired home from inside the box to make it 3-0.

West Ham United were unable to build on Saturday's victory over Fulham as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace. Marouane Chamakh's 42nd minute header split the sides and means the Hammers are still without back-to-back wins since returning to the Barclays Premier League. The east Londoners could not create chances as readily as they managed against the Cottagers as Tony Pulis was able to celebrate his first home match in charge of the Eagles with all three points.
