Rule Change: 

VAR, thicker lines, armpits and handball rule changes for new season

 

VARs

Premier League set to use 'thicker lines' in games this season to determine marginal decisions. This should rule out instances where a player's toe has led to a goal being ruled out, cases which many fans, players and pundits felt were ruining the game.

 

Armpits and offsides

A brief clarification from FIFA about where offside lines start and stop: they say the bottom of the armpit is now being classed as the part of the body where offsides will be measured from.

 

Handball language changing

Accidental handball in the build-up to a goal will no longer be deemed an offence. The crucial word here is 'build-up'. It will still be an offence if an accidental handball directly creates the chance that scores the goal, or scores the goal itself.

 

New approach to penalties

There will also be a tweak in the approach toward penalties after a record high of 125 were awarded last season. This season, referees should not only establish whether there is clear contact but whether it had enough of a consequence in order to award a penalty and whether the player used the contact to try to win a foul or a penalty.

UEFA abolishes away goals rule in Champions League and Europa League

The governing body has announced that, as is common in many elite level football competitions across the world, if the scores are still level over a two-legged knockout tie there will be two 15-minute periods of extra time. Should the teams score the same number of goals, or if no further goals are scored, during extra time, a penalty shootout will take place to determine which team will go through to the next round.

DAVE DUNMORE (1960-1961) Passed away aged 87

 

Dunmore spent a prolific year with the Hammers between March 1960 and March 1961, scoring 18 goals in 41 appearances, including a memorable hat-trick in a 6-0 First Division win over Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground in November 1960. The 1960-61 season proved to be Dunmore’s only full campaign for the Irons, but he made sure it was a memorable one by netting 16 goals in 30 games, including 14 in the league and one each in the FA Cup and Football League Cup.

EDDIE PRESLAND (1965) Passed away aged 78

 

Born in Loughton in Essex in March 1943, defender Presland joined the Academy of Football as a schoolboy in the 1950s and signed his first professional contract in October 1960. However, with the likes of John Bond and then Jack Burkett holding down the left-back position, Presland had to wait patiently for his chance to play for the first team. When his debut did arrive, though, the 21-year-old marked it in style, scoring the equaliser as West Ham came from behind to defeat Liverpool 2-1 in the First Division in front of 25,780 fans at the Boleyn Ground in February 1965.

West Ham United roared back in the second half to overwhelm Newcastle United and triumph 4-2 in their Premier League opener at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon. Twice the east Londoners trailed to Newcastle headers in a see-saw first half, first to Callum Wilson and then to Jacob Murphy, but they kept going and ensured Aaron Cresswell’s equaliser in between would be built on. David Moyes’ men emerged for the second half at real pace and had the game won before its mid-point. First Saïd Benrahma nodded home to level up for the second time of the contest, before quickfire goals from Tomáš Souček and Michail Antonio left a stunned Magpies side on the ropes. It was a truly thrilling start to the campaign, as 3,000 Hammers high in the St James’ Park stands more than enjoyed their return to full houses in the Premier League.

West Ham United celebrated the return of a capacity crowd to London Stadium by storming to the top of the Premier League with a sensational 4-1 win over Leicester City. The Hammers were at their very best on a celebratory night in east London, as 59,901 supporters returned home for the first time in 541 days. Pablo Fornals sent the West Ham fans wild by opening the scoring midway through the first half, before Saïd Benrahma made it two after Ayoze Pérez had been sent-off. And, after Youri Tielemans had pulled one back for the Foxes, Michail Antonio ensured he would make history on this memorable evening, netting two second-half goals to break the Club’s all-time Premier League scoring record.

West Ham United maintained their unbeaten start to the season but were twice pegged back in a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace at London Stadium. The Hammers struck first through Pablo Fornals shortly before the break, and although Conor Gallagher levelled for the visitors on 58 minutes, Michail Antonio’s fourth goal of the season ten minutes later had home fans dreaming of a third straight win. However, Gallagher had other ideas, scoring his second goal of the afternoon just two minutes later and ensuring the spoils would be shared in East London.

West Ham United’s unbeaten start to the 2021-22 season continued with a 0-0 draw at St Mary's Stadium. Neither team could find a way through on the South Coast, with both enjoying spells when they were on the front foot, but a point was probably fair in the end. After Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen brought second half saves from Alex McCarthy, the Saints did end the stronger though with substitute Armando Broja twice going desperately close. He first hit the post from outside the box, then had a header cleared off the line by Declan Rice, while Antonio was dismissed for picking up his second yellow card right at the end. David Moyes named an unchanged team for the fourth Premier League game in succession, with his trio of new signings Kurt Zouma, Alex Král and Nikola Vlašić named on the bench.

TONY SCOTT (1959-1965) Passed away aged 80

 

An orthodox right-winger with a penchant for scoring goals. North London born, he escaped the Tottenham scouting net to join the Upton Park ground-staff in 1957; quickly making his way through the junior ranks and 12 appearances for England Youth. Had his League debut against Chelsea at Upton Park along with John Lyall in a 4-2 victory on the 6 February 1960. Partnering Phil Woosnam on the right wing, Scott played 97 games for West Ham, scoring 19 goals, before moving to Aston Villa for £25,000 and renewing his partnership with Woosnam at Villa Park. He went on to make 57 appearances and score five goals for the Midlanders until his departure in September 1967. He then joined Torquay United, where he played under former Hammer Frank O'Farrell and linked up with his old teammate John Bond. Scott followed Bond, who went on to become manager of Bournemouth, in July 1970. Bournemouth, who also had ex-Hammer Ken Brown as coach, finished runners-up in Scott's first season. He made a total of 61 League appearances, scoring six goals. He moved to Exeter City in June 1972 and managed two goals in 51 League appearances before being forced to retire though injury in May 1974.

Goals from Michail Antonio and Declan Rice gave West Ham United the perfect start to their UEFA Europa League campaign at Dinamo Zagreb. West Ham may be relative novices when it comes to European competition – this was their first tie, excluding qualifiers, since 2006 – but they began the game in composed fashion.The Hammers claimed the points with a strike in each half, as Antonio took advantage of an error from home defender Kévin Théophile-Catherine to open the scoring, before Declan Rice’s solo run made the second. West Ham were well in control for much of the contest, quelling Dinamo’s threat as they searched for a route back into the contest in the second period and a second straight clean sheet ensured the three points would be theirs.

JIMMY GREAVES (1970-1971) Passed away aged 81

 

A member of England’s 1966 World Cup winning squad, the prolific goalscorer spent two seasons with the Hammers towards the end of his illustrious playing career, scoring 13 goals in 40 appearances, including two on a memorable debut at Manchester City in March 1970. In total he scored 438 goals in 652 senior appearances in English football, and will go down in the history of the game as one of the finest goalscorers ever seen. Jimmy began his career at Chelsea, progressing through the youth ranks and going on to score 132 goals in 169 matches between 1957 and 1961, before a short-lived spell in Italy with AC Milan. In December 1961, he returned to London to join Tottenham Hotspur, where he went on to firmly establish himself as one of the greatest strikers in the country, with 266 goals in 381 appearances across a nine-year period. In March 1970, Jimmy moved across London to Upton Park in the record-breaking deal that saw Martin Peters head in the opposite direction, and he quickly continued to live up to his reputation, hitting a brace on his debut in a 5-1 win over Manchester City at Maine Road. After retiring from the professional game at the end of the 1970-71 season, he went on to become a hugely respected and admired TV personality, and in 2020 was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours list.

West Ham United’s unbeaten start to the 2021-22 season came to a dramatic end against Manchester United at London Stadium. With Michail Antonio absent due to the red card he picked up at Southampton a week ago, the Hammers were forced into a reshuffle up front, with Jarrod Bowen moving into a central position, closely supported by Benrahma. Having led in the first half through Saïd Benrahma’s third goal of the season, the Hammers were then pegged back by Cristiano Ronaldo’s swift leveller. As time ticked away in the second half, it looked as though 1-1 would be how the contest would conclude, until Jesse Lingard struck the winner in the 89th minute on his return to east London. There could still have been a final twist in the tale, though, as West Ham were awarded a penalty in the final minute of added time, only for Mark Noble to suffer a rare miss from the spot.

WINSTON REID Contract cancelled by mutual consent

 

Signed as a fresh-faced 23-year-old from Midtjylland in Denmark in August 2010 after impressing at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Reid understandably took a little time to settle into the rigours of English football. The uncompromising centre-back impressed in at the heart of the Irons side which secured promotion via the 2011-12 EFL Championship Play-Offs, and his excellent performances the following season saw him voted Hammer of the Year by West Ham United’s supporters as the Club finished tenth on its return to Premier League. Over the following five seasons, the New Zealand international was a consistent and key component of the sides which re-established the Hammers in the Premier League, quickly becoming a popular figure among the Claret and Blue Army.

Crucial goals against London rivals Millwall (in February 2012) and Tottenham Hotspur (in October 2013) certainly helped in that regard, with the centre-back forging strong partnerships with the likes of James Tomkins, James Collins and Angelo Ogbonna over the seasons. During the historic 2015/16 campaign – West Ham’s last at the Boleyn – the centre-back was outstanding, helping the Irons to unforgettable wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City before ensuring the Hammers would end life in Upton Park on the highest of notes, as he headed in that historic winner against Manchester United in May 2016.

West Ham United produced an outstanding counter-attacking display to progress to the Carabao Cup fourth round with a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. A much-changed Irons team were staunch in their defending, diligent in their shape and – when it ultimately mattered, in the ninth minute – decisive with their finishing, Manuel Lanzini firing home the winner after being picked out by Ryan Fredericks. The Red Devils attempted to mount the pressure in the second half but were largely restricted to efforts from range, with West Ham centre-backs Craig Dawson and Issa Diop particularly impressive in their consistent repelling of balls into the box. The Irons even had chances to close out the game on the counter-attack in injury time, but Andriy Yarmolenko struck the post from close range and Mark Noble saw an effort saved by Dean Henderson after running clean in on goal. Nevertheless, the result saw West Ham claim a measure of revenge for their Premier League loss to the same opponents three days prior, Lanzini's goal sealing the Irons' first win at Old Trafford since May 2007.

A late Michail Antonio goal propelled West Ham United to a 2-1 victory over Leeds United at Elland Road in the Premier League. Antonio returned to the Hammers starting line-up after missing last weekend's league game against Manchester United due to suspension, before being rested for the midweek cup game against the same opposition. David Moyes made ten changes in total from the team that won at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup, with only Jarrod Bowen retaining his place. Raphinha’s driven effort gave the hosts the lead after just twenty minutes, but the Hammers hit back through a deflected Jarrod Bowen effort – that was later awarded as an own goal by Junior Firpo - and a 90th minute Antonio winner to claim the three points. The victory sees David Moyes side climb to seventh in the Premier League table after just six games.

Goals from Declan Rice and Saïd Benrahma gave West Ham United a 2-0 victory over Rapid Vienna in their home UEFA Europa League Group H opener on Thursday night. The Hammers extended their perfect start to life in Europe with the victory, building on their win in Zagreb with a second straight 2-0 success, with Rice on target in both matches. It was Rice who opened the scoring in front of over 50,000 Hammers at London Stadium, touching home from close range after being teed up by Michail Antonio. Rapid asked more questions of the hosts, who had been comfortable in their lead, after the interval and saw VAR intervene to rule out a penalty award 20 minutes from time, before Benrahma wrapped up the points in injury time.

Brentford’s Yoane Wissa scored with virtually the last kick of the game to inflict an unfortunate 2-1 defeat on West Ham United at London Stadium. A fiercely contested London derby – the first-ever top-flight meeting between these two sides, and their first competitive fixture since April 1993 – saw the visitors start the brighter and open the scoring with a quarter of the game gone, Bryan Mbeumo sliding in after Lukasz Fabianski had tipped Sergi Canos’ initial effort away from goal. Although Mbeumo’s effort initially appeared to have also been saved by Fabianski, the Goal Decision System judged the whole of the ball to have crossed the whole of the line, and Brentford - at that point - deservedly led. West Ham grew into the game, however, and after missing a series of clear opportunities at the start of the second half, deservedly equalised when Jarrod Bowen slammed home a crisp low volley with ten minutes to go. There only looked to be one winner from thereon out, but a late lapse of concentration saw Wissa slam home a bouncing volley in the fourth minute of injury time after Fabianski saved a header from Pontus Jansson – the last kick of the game snatching all three points for Brentford.
