Tranter joined Chatham in the 1899-1900 season. Thames Iron Works struggled without Tranter and finished second from bottom that season. Tranter briefly returned to the renamed West Ham United in 1900. However, he only played in four games before leaving to play in Northern Ireland.


Walter Tranter: West Ham United - History


History

History

West Ham United Football Club is an English football club based in Upton Park, London Borough of Newham, East London. They have played their home matches at the Boleyn Ground stadium since 1904. The club was founded in 1895 as Thames Ironworks F.C.. In 1900 the club reformed as West Ham United. They initially competed in the Southern League and Western League before eventually joining the full Football League in 1919 and subsequently enjoyed promotion to the top flight for the 1923 season. 1923 also saw the club feature in the first FA Cup Final to be held at Wembley against Bolton Wanderers.
In 1940 the team won the inaugural Football League War Cup. Subsequently the club has won the FA Cup three times: in 1964, 1975 and 1980 as well as being runners-up twice, in 1923 and 2006. In 1965, they won the European Cup Winners Cup, and in 1999 they won the Intertoto Cup. The club's best final league position is third place in the 1985󈟂 (old) First Division.
Three West Ham players were considered an important factor behind England's triumph in the 1966 World Cup, as England's captain at the time was West Ham's Bobby Moore, and both goalscorers in the final were the West Ham players Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.
West Ham currently compete in the Premier League, and finished in 9th position in the 2008󈝵 season. They have been members of the Premier League for all but three seasons since its creation in 1992, and their highest finish in the Premier League was 5th in 1998󈟏.
Their current manager is former International Italian Forward Gianfranco Zola, who replaced former player Alan Curbishley in September 2008 after his resignation was accepted.

The earliest generally accepted incarnation of West Ham United was founded in 1895 as the Thames Ironworks team by foreman and local league referee Dave Taylor and owner Arnold Hills and was announced in the Thames Ironworks Gazette of June 1895.
The team played on a strictly amateur basis for 1895 at least, with a team featuring a number of works employees including Thomas Freeman (ships fireman), Walter Parks (clerk), Tom Mundy, Walter Tranter and James Lindsay (all boilermakers), William Chapman, George Sage, and William Chamberlain and apprentice riveter Charlie Dove.
The club, Thames Ironworks were the first ever winners of the West Ham Charity Cup in 1895 contested by clubs in the locality, then won the London League in 1897. They turned professional in 1898 upon entering the Southern League Second Division, and were promoted to the First Division at the first attempt.[5] The following year they came second from bottom, but had established themselves as a fully fledged competitive team. They comfortably fended off the challenge of local rivals Fulham in a relegation play-off, 5𔂿 in late April 1900 and retained their First Division status.
The team initially played in full dark blue kits, as inspired by Mr. Hills, who had been an Oxford University "Blue", but changed the following season by adopting the sky blue shirts and white shorts combination worn through 1897 to 1899. In 1899 they acquired their now traditional home kit combination of claret shirts and sky blue sleeves in a wager involving Aston Villa players, who were League Champions at the time.
Following growing disputes over the running and financing of the club in June 1900 Thames Ironworks F.C. was disbanded,then almost immediately relaunched on 5 July 1900 as West Ham United F.C. with Syd Kingas their manager and future manager Charlie Paynter as his assistant. Because of the original "works team" roots and links (still represented upon the club badge), they are still known to this day as 'the Irons' or 'the Hammers' amongst fans and the media.

Birth of West Ham United
The reborn club continued to play their games at the Memorial Ground in Plaistow (funded by Arnold Hills) but moved to a pitch in the Upton Park area when the team officially severed ties with the company (losing their works provisioned offices in the process). After being made groundless in 1901 the team became transient, playing their home games on a number of local teams' grounds until moving to its current home, Upton Park (in the guise of the Boleyn Ground stadium), in 1904.
West Ham's first game in their new home was against local rivals Millwall (themselves an Ironworks team, albeit for a rival company) drawing a crowd of 10,000 and with West Ham running out 3𔂾 winners, and as the Daily Mirror wrote on 2 September 1904:
West Ham Utd had joined the Western League for the 1901 season in addition to continuing playing in the Southern Division 1. In 1907 West Ham were crowned the Western League Division 1B Champions, and then defeated 1A champions Fulham 1𔂾 to become the Western Leagues Overall Champions.

In 1919, still under King's leadership, West Ham gained entrance to the Football League Second Division, the first game being a 1-1 draw with Lincoln City, and were promoted to Division One in 1923, also making the first ever FA Cup Final to be held at the old Wembley stadium. Their opponents were Bolton Wanderers. This was also known as the White Horse Final. This is because so many people turned up to the game, (estimated at 200,000), that they spilled out on to the pitch. The pitch had to be cleared prior to kick-off, by Billie, a giant white horse (actually grey) being ridden by PC George Scorey. The Cup Final match itself ended 2𔂾 to Bolton Wanderers. The team enjoyed mixed success in Division 1 but retained their status for 10 years and reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1927.
In 1932 the club was relegated to Division Two and long term custodian Syd King was sacked after serving the club in the role of Manager for 32 years, and as a player from 1899 to 1903. He was replaced with his assistant manager Charlie Paynter who himself had been with West Ham in a number of roles since 1897 and who went on to serve the team in this role until 1950 for a total of 480 games.
The club spent most of the next 30 years in this division, first under Paynter and then later under the leadership of former player Ted Fenton. Fenton succeeded in getting the club once again promoted to the top level of English football in 1958 and in helping develop both the initial batch of future West Ham stars and West Ham's approach to the game.

The Glory Years Ron Greenwood was appointed as Fenton's successor in 1961 and he soon led the club to two major trophies, winning the FA Cup in 1964 and the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1965.
During the 1966 World Cup, key members of the tournament winners England were West Ham players, including the captain, Bobby Moore Martin Peters (who scored in the final) and Geoff Hurst, who scored the only hat-trick (to date) in a World Cup final.
There is a "Champions" statue in Barking Road, opposite The Boleyn pub, commemorating West Ham's three sons who helped win the 1966 World Cup: Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters. Also included on the statue is Everton's Ray Wilson.
After a difficult start to the 1974󈞷 season, Greenwood moved himself "upstairs" to become General Manager and without informing the board, appointed his assistant John Lyall as team manager. The result was instant success – the team scored 20 goals in the their first four games combined and won the FA Cup, becoming the last team to win the FA Cup with an all English side when they beat Fulham 2𔂾 in the 1975 final.
Lyall then guided West Ham to another European Cup Winners' Cup final in 1976, though the team lost the match 4𔃀 to Anderlecht. Greenwood's tenure as General Manager lasted less than three years, as he was appointed to manage England in the wake of Don Revie's resignation in 1977.

Ups and Downs
In 1978, West Ham were again relegated to Division Two, but Lyall was retained as manager and led the team to an FA Cup Final win against Arsenal in 1980. This was notable because no team outside the top division has won the trophy since that time. West Ham were promoted to Division One in 1981, but were relegated again in 1989. This second relegation resulted in John Lyall's sacking, despite the fact that that stay in Division One saw West Ham achieve their highest-ever placing in the top division, finishing 3rd in 1986.
After Lyall, Lou Macari briefly led the team, though he resigned after less than a single season in order to clear his name of allegations of illegal betting whilst manager of Swindon Town. He was replaced by former player Billy Bonds. In Bonds' first full season (1990󈟇), West Ham again secured promotion to Division One. The following season they were again relegated to Division 2, which had been renamed Division One as part of the league realignments surrounding the creation of the English Premier League in 1992. West Ham spent the 1992󈟉 season in Division One. finishing second and returning to the Premier League in May 1993.
After the 1993󈟊 season, Bonds quit and was replaced by Harry Redknapp in August 1994. Redknapp was active in the transfer market, and gained a reputation as a "wheeler-dealer" especially with foreign players being more available following the Bosman ruling. He led West Ham to fifth place in the 1998󈟏 season, but missed automatic qualification for the UEFA Cup, and instead qualified as winners of the Intertoto Cup. Despite consolidating the league placings for a handful of seasons, a disagreement with the board of directors during the close of the 2000󈝭 season, found Redknapp replaced with Glenn Roeder, promoted from youth team coach.
In Roeder's first season the team finished seventh, but West Ham lost by wide margins in several matches (7𔂿 to Blackburn, 5𔂾 to Everton and 5𔂿 to Chelsea) The subsequent season started badly and eventually resulted in relegation. Roeder, who had missed some of the season after being diagnosed with a brain tumour that was treated) was sacked on 24 August 2003, three games into the Championship campaign.
Trevor Brooking (who served as manager during Glenn's ill health the previous season) stepped in as interim manager before being replaced by Alan Pardew in October 2003, headhunted from fellow promotion contenders Reading. Pardew led the team to a playoff final, though they were beaten by Crystal Palace. The club stayed in Division One (which at this time became the Championship) for another season, when they again reached the playoff final, but this time won, beating Preston North End 1𔂾, gaining re-entry to the Premier League.

Recent seasonsOn their return to the top division, West Ham finished in 9th place,The highlight of the 2005󈝲 season, however, was reaching the FA Cup final, and taking favourites Liverpool to a penalty shootout, after a thrilling three-all draw. Although West Ham lost the shootout, they gained entry to the UEFA Cup as Liverpool had already qualified for the Champions League through league position.
In August 2006, West Ham completed a major coup on the last day of the transfer window, after completing the signings of Carlos Tévez and Javier Mascherano. The club was eventually bought by an Icelandic consortium, led by Eggert Magnússon in November 2006.Manager Alan Pardew was sacked after poor form during the season and was replaced by former Charlton manager Alan Curbishley.
The signings of Mascherano and Tévez were investigated by the Premier League, who were concerned that details of the transfers had been omitted from official records. The club was found guilty and fined 5.5 million pounds in April 2007. However, West Ham avoided a points deduction which ultimately became critical in their avoidance of relegation at the end of the 2006󈝳 season. Following on from this event, Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan, supported by other sides facing possible relegation, including Fulham and Sheffield United, threatened legal action.
West Ham escaped relegation by winning seven of their last nine games, including a 1𔂾 win over Arsenal, and on the last day of the season defeated newly crowned League Champions Manchester United 1𔂾 with a goal by Tévez to finish 15th, above the relegation zone. Tévez' contributions were arguably important to the survival of the club in the Premier League as he scored seven goals, five of them crucial, in the last couple of months of the season to enable the team to stay up, notwithstanding his ineffectiveness throughout the early part of the season.
In the 2007󈝴 season, West Ham had a reasonably consistent place in the top half of the league table despite a slew of injuries new signings Craig Bellamy and Kieron Dyer missed most of the campaign. The last game of the season, at the Boleyn Ground, saw West Ham draw 2𔃀 against Aston Villa ensuring 10th place, finishing three points ahead of rivals Tottenham Hotspur. It was a five-place improvement on the previous season, and most importantly West Ham were never under any realistic threat of relegation.
After a row with the board over the sale of defenders Anton Ferdinand and George McCartney to Sunderland, manager Alan Curbishley resigned on 3 September 2008. His successor, the former Chelsea striker Gianfranco Zola took over on 11 September 2008 and in so doing became the club's first foreign manager (The Scottish manager Lou Macari was the only other manager not from England), to coach the club and became West Ham's 12th manager.[17]
In the 2008󈝵 season, under Zola's stewardship West Ham finished 9th. Zola's team had an impressive second half of the season just missing out on European qualification after being one point above the relegation zone on Christmas Day.
In the 2009󈝶 season, West Ham started strongly with a 2𔂾 win over newly promoted Wolves with goals from Mark Noble and newly appointed captain Matthew Upson. However the victory was soon overshadowed as the club were once again in the media spotlight for the wrong reasons. A League Cup match against old rivals Millwall brought about violent riots outside the ground as well as pitch invasions and crowd trouble inside Upton Park.[18][19]
In August 2009 finanicial worries continued at the club with the current owners unable to provide any funds until a new owner was found. Shirt sponsor SBOBET provided the club with support to help purchase a much needed a striker with the Hammers having Carlton Cole as the only fit, experienced striker on the books. SBOBET's backing enabled the purchase of Alessandro Diamanti for an undisclosed amount.

CrestThe original club crest was a crossed pair of rivet hammers tools commonly used in the iron and shipbuilding industry. A castle was later (circa 1903/4) added to the crest and represents a prominent local building, Green Street House, which was known as "Boleyn Castle" through an association with Anne Boleyn. The manor was reportedly one of the sites at which Henry VIII courted his second queen, though in truth there is no factual evidence other than the tradition of rumour.
The castle may have also been added as a result of the contribution made to the club by players of Old Castle Swifts, or even the adoption (in 1904) of Boleyn Castle FC as their reserve side when they took over their grounds on the site.
The crest was redesigned and updated by London design agency Springett Associates in the late 1990s, featuring a wider yellow castle with fewer cruciform "windows" along with the peaked roofs being removed the tops of the towers had previously made the castle appear more akin to Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty's Castle than a functioning fortress. The designer also altered other details to give a more substantial feel to the iconography.
When the club redesigned the facade of the stadium (construction finished 2001/02) the 'castle' from the later badge was incorporated into the structure at the main entrance to the ground. A pair of towers are now prominent features of the ground's appearance, both bearing the club's modern insignia (which is also located in the foyer and other strategic locations).

Colours
The original colours of the team were dark blue, due to Thames Ironworks chairman Arnold Hills being a former student of Oxford University. However the team used a variety of kits including the claret and sky blue house colours of Thames Ironworks, as well as sky blue or white uniforms.
The Irons permanently adopted claret and blue for home colours in the summer of 1899. Thames Ironworks right-half Charlie Dove received the Aston Villa kit from his father William Dove, who was a professional sprinter of national repute, as well as being involved with the coaching at Thames Ironworks. Bill Dove had been at a fair in Birmingham, close to Villa Park, the home ground of Aston Villa and was challenged to a race against four Villa players, who wagered money that one of them would win.
Bill Dove defeated them and, when they were unable to pay the bet, one of the Villa players who was responsible for washing the team's kit offered a complete side's 'uniforms' to Dove in payment. The Aston Villa player subsequently reported to his club that the kit was 'missing'.
Thames Ironworks, and later West Ham United, retained the claret yoke/blue sleeves design, but also continued to use their previously favoured colours for their away kits, and indeed, in recent years the club have committed to a dark blue-white-sky blue rotation for the away colours. For instance, the 2008󈝵 squad will wear sky blue away kits, while last year's campaign saw white away kits, the year before saw navy blue, etc. However, last year's away kit will be the Hammers' third kit for the coming season. Interestingly enough, the 2009󈝶 version of West Ham's claret home kits do not feature the traditional sky blue sleeves. Instead the sleeves are also claret, with some sky blue trim added to the shoulders.

NicknamesThe fans and club alike are known as "The Hammers" by the media, partly because of the club's origins as Thames Ironworks company football team (see club crest) and also (incorrectly) due to the club's name. However, they are also known as "The Irons" by their own supporters. They are also known as "The Cockney Boys" from their history of being a Cockney team. Yet another nickname is "The Academy of Football", or just "The Academy", a nickname given, then adopted by West Ham United, by the London media.

"The Academy of Football"
The club promotes the popular idea of West Ham being "The Academy of Football", with the moniker adorning the ground's new stadium façade. The comment predominantly refers to the club's youth development system which was established by manager Ted Fenton during the 1950s, that has seen a number of international players emerge through the ranks. Most notably the club contributed three players to the World Cup winning England side of 1966 including club icon Bobby Moore, as well as Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst who between them scored all of England's goals in the eventual 4𔃀 victory. Other academy players that have gone on to play for England have included Trevor Brooking, Alvin Martin, Tony Cottee and Paul Ince. During the late 1990s Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick and Glen Johnson have begun their careers at the club and all are playing for one of the "Big Four" clubs. Most recently the likes of first team midfield regulars Mark Noble and Jack Collison and younger stars Freddie Sears, Junior Stanislas, James Tomkins, Josh Payne and Zavon Hines have emerged through the Academy. Frustratingly, for the fans and managers alike,the club has struggled to retain many of these players due to (predominantly) financial reasons. West Ham, during the 2007/08 season, had an average of 6.61 English players in the starting line up, higher than any other Premiership club, which cemented their status as one of the few Premier League clubs left that were recognised to be bringing through young English talent and were recognised as having 'homegrown players'. Much of the success of The Academy has been attributed to Tony Carr who has been West Ham youth coach since 1973.
A sign of the success of the academy was shown in an England International Friendly against Holland (finished 2 v 2) where no less than seven of the players on the field had some affiliation with the club, a large proportion from the academy itself.

The team played on a strictly amateur basis for 1895 at least, with a team featuring a number of works employees including Thomas Freeman (ships fireman), Walter Parks (clerk), Tom Mundy, Walter Tranter and James Lindsay (all boilermakers), William Chapman, George Sage, and William Chamberlain and apprentice riveter Charlie Dove]
1895󈟌: First kit

The team initially played in full dark blue kits, as inspired by Mr. Hills, who had been an Oxford University "Blue", but changed the following season by adopting the sky blue shirts and white shorts combination worn through 1897 to 1899. In 1899 they acquired their now-traditional home kit combination of claret shirts and sky blue sleeves in a wager involving Aston Villa players, who were League Champions at the time.[

Because of the original "works team" roots and links (still represented upon the club badge), they are still known as 'the Irons' or 'the Hammers' amongst fans and the media.
Birth of West Ham United

West Ham Utd had joined the Western League for the 1901 season in addition to continuing playing in the Southern Division 1. In 1907 West Ham were crowned the Western League Division 1B Champions, and then defeated 1A champions Fulham 1𔂾 to become the Western League Overall Champions. The reborn club continued to play their games at the Memorial Grounds in Plaistow (funded by Arnold Hills) but moved to a pitch in the Upton Park area in the guise of the Boleyn Ground stadium in 1904. West Ham's first game in their new home was against fierce rivals Millwall[7] (themselves an Ironworks team, albeit for a rival company) drawing a crowd of 10,000 and with West Ham running out 3𔂾 winners, and as the Daily Mirror wrote on 2 September 1904:
“ "Favoured by the weather turning fine after heavy rains of the morning, West Ham United began their season most auspiciously yesterday evening when they beat Millwall by 3 goals to 0 on their new enclosure at Upton Park." ”
Billie the White Horse, saviour of the 1923 FA Cup Final

In 1919, still under King's leadership, West Ham gained entrance to the Football League Second Division, the first game being a 1𔂿 draw with Lincoln City, and were promoted to Division One in 1923, also making the first ever FA Cup Final to be held at the old Wembley stadium. Their opponents were Bolton Wanderers. This was also known as the White Horse Final. This is because so many people turned up to the game, (estimated at 200,000), that they spilled out on to the pitch. The pitch had to be cleared prior to kick-off, by Billie, a giant white horse (actually grey) being ridden by PC George Scorey. The Cup Final match itself ended 2𔂾 to Bolton Wanderers. The team enjoyed mixed success in Division 1 but retained their status for 10 years and reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1933.

In 1932 the club was relegated to Division Two[16] and long term custodian Syd King was sacked after serving the club in the role of Manager for 32 years, and as a player from 1899 to 1903. Following relegation King had mental health problems. He appeared drunk at a board meeting and soon after committed suicide.He was replaced with his assistant manager Charlie Paynter who himself had been with West Ham in a number of roles since 1897 and who went on to serve the team in this role until 1950 for a total of 480 games. The club spent most of the next 30 years in this division, first under Paynter and then later under the leadership of former player Ted Fenton. Fenton succeeded in getting the club once again promoted to the top level of English football in 1958, and, with the considerable input of player Malcolm Allison, helped develop both the initial batch of future West Ham stars and West Ham's approach to the game.


West Ham Utd Ted Fenton irányításával

1950–1962

Ted Fentont 1948-ban visszahozták a klubba, hogy segítse Payntert a csapat háború utáni újjáépítésében. Korábban Fenton 1934-től 1946-ig a West Ham csapatában játszott (akkor volt a pályán, amikor a klub diadalmaskodott a Blackburn elleni háborús kupában), 201 meccsen lépett pályára, 44 gólt szerzett és öt sapkát szerzett a szélső félidő alatt. Anglia. 1950-ben teljesen átvette a gyeplőt, miközben Paynter visszavonult, és megszakította az utolsó kapcsolatot a klub öntöde származásával.

Fentont előremutató vezetőként dicsérték. Az "Akadémia" létrehozását szorgalmazta, amely fiatal játékosok sorozatát hozta magával egy olyan oldal növelése érdekében, amelyet a rendelkezésre álló korlátozott pénzeszközökkel nem lehetne javítani. John Dick és Malcolm Allison közül két aláírást sikerült végrehajtania . A nap további játékosai között volt John Bond , Dave Sexton , Jimmy Andrews és Frank O'Farrell (később Eddie Lewisra cserélték ) és Tommy Moroney, akik mind egy eredeti "Cafe Cassettari" klub részét képezik, amelyet a Fenton indított a korlátozó költségvetés eredményeként. Hosszú őrző volt a kapuban Ernie Gregory .

Ott [Cafe Cassateri] Allison udvart tartott, a játékosok véleményt cseréltek a játékról, és taktikai terveket készítettek az ebédlőasztal körül, só és bors edények használatával illusztrálva elképzeléseiket. A kemény munka csúcspontja volt a pályán és a pályán kívül 1958-ban a másodosztályú bajnokság - a 60-as évek közepén jóval magasabb szintű kupasikerek ugródeszkája . senki sem becsülheti alá a Malcolm Allison korábbi szerepe Hammers történetében.

A Cafe Cassettari a Boleyn-területtel szemben ült, és Fenton olyan üzletet szervezett, amely étkezést és meleg fogadtatást jelentett a klub játékosai számára olyan áron, amelyet a klub képes kezelni. Ez a csapat rutinbeszélgetésének helyszíne lett, és az ötletek és a bölcsesség szabadon haladt előre-hátra. A hagyomány sokáig tartott az 1960-as években, még azután is, hogy Fenton továbbment, és látta, hogy John Lyall és Harry Redknapp átjutottak.

Dick a nemzeti szolgálatában állt, amikor Fenton észrevette, és bekerült a csapatba. Eközben Allison a helyi rivális, a Charlton Athletic csapatában játszott, de csak két bajnokin lépett pályára, és közel 24 éves volt. A Fenton úgy szerezte meg Allisont, hogy eladta a rendszeren keresztül érkező egyik fiatal játékost. A páros Fenton csapatával töltött fennmaradó idejére a klub tagjaként lépett pályára, bár Allisonnak betegség miatt kellett visszavonulnia, és ehelyett Bobby Moore mentora lett az ír válogatott hátvéd, Noel Cantwell és a csapat összes többi fiatal játékosa mellett. Moore-t eredetileg 1955-ben kutatták fel, miután Fentont állítólag az East Ham oldalán látták el jelenlétében, ám Jack Turner (akkori West Ham-felderítő) két falatnyi cseresznye kellett ahhoz, hogy ösztönözze aláírását. Végül Fenton havi 7 fontért tegye fel a legényt a könyvekre.

O'Farrellt és Moroney-t 1949-ben szerezték meg Írországból, mielőtt a Fenton menedzsere lett, de a pár olyan ír válogatott volt, amely még az angliai csapat 2–0-s vereségében is szerepelt 1949-ben a Goodison Parkban . John Bondot behozták Fenton első szerződéseként 1950-ben, és az elkövetkező 15 évben együtt kellett lennie a csapattal, mint népszerű góllövő játék, közvetlenül Cantwell kapitánnyal szemben. Jimmy Andrews-t 1951- ben hozták be Dundee -ból, hogy baloldalt játszhasson, de végül elvesztette pozícióját Malcolm Musgrove-tól .

A Fenton kontinentális ötleteket mutatott be a csapatnak, átalakítva az edzésmódszereket és inspirációt merítve a magasabb rangú csapatoktól, sőt, néhányat inspirálva is. Fentont nagyon lenyűgözték az ötvenes évek mindent meghódító magyarjai Puskás Ferenc vezetésével , és a Casseteri program és az akadémia fejlesztése állt a középpontban. Ernie Gregory azt mondta (az 1950-es évek diétájáról): "Azelőtt általában halat vagy csirkét ettünk, és pirítottunk, de Dr. Thomas azt tanácsolta, hogy steaket és rizst együnk két órával a rajt előtt. Az összes többi klub lemásolt minket hogy." Azonban nem minden változás szigorúan a Fentonra vonatkozott Musgrove az edzésrendszer nagy részét Allisonnak tulajdonította, eljutva odáig, hogy kijelentette, hogy miután a játékosok a klubban voltak (Fenton aláírásával), nagyjából Allison tulajdonát képezték. Amellett, hogy maga a játék tanulója volt, Fenton arra buzdította az összes játékost, hogy vegyenek edzői jelvényeket, és sok korábbi játékosa visszavonulása után edzői és irányító szerepet töltött be. Az Akadémia az ifjúság és a csapat rutinszerű edzésén és fejlesztésén túl tényleges taktikai megbeszéléseket is folytatott a játékosok között.

Az 1950-es évek során a West Ham lassan javult, és ennek eredményeként 1958-ban ismét a legfelsõbb osztályba jutottak, elsõsorban John Dick céljainak köszönhetõen . A West Ham azóta kijelentette, hogy sokat köszönhet az Allison által létrehozott struktúrának.

Eredet

A legkorábbi általánosan elfogadott megtestesülése West Ham United 1895-ben alapították, mint Thames Ironworks FC , a gyári csapat , a legnagyobb és utolsó túlélő hajógyár a Thames, Thames Vasmű és hajóépítő cég képviseletében művezető és a helyi liga játékvezető Dave Taylor és tulajdonosa Arnold Hills és jelentette be a Thames Vasmű Közlöny június 1895 Thames Ironworks vették alapul Leamouth Wharf a Blackwall és Canning Town mindkét partján a folyó Lea , ahol a Lea megfelel a Temze . A Temze Vasgyár sok hajót és egyéb szerkezetet épített, a leghíresebb a HMS Warrior . Az utolsó ott épített hajó a rettegett HMS Thunderer volt 1912-ben, és az udvar nem sokkal később bezárt.

A kastélyszállító javító udvara nagyon közeli szomszéd volt, és munkacsoportjuk, amelyet kezdetben a Castle Swifts néven ismertek , informálisan összeolvad a Temze Vasgyár saját csapatával.

A csapat szigorúan amatőr alapon játszott legalább 1895-ig, egy csapatban számos műhely alkalmazottja volt. Thomas Freeman hajótűzoltó és Walter Parks hivatalnok volt. Johnny Stewart , Walter Tranter és James Lindsay mind kazángyártók voltak. További alkalmazottak között volt William Chapman, George Sage és Fred Chamberlain, valamint a tanonc rivátor, Charlie Dove , akinek később nagy hatással kellett lennie a klub jövőjére.

A Thames Ironworks 1895-ben megnyerte a West Ham jótékonysági kupát , amelyet a West Ham-i klub klubjai vetélkedtek, majd 1897- ben megnyerte a Londoni Ligát . 1898-ban profivá váltak, amikor bejutottak a Déli Liga másodosztályába, és felkerültek az első osztályba az első kísérlet. A következő évben alulról a második helyre kerültek, de teljes jogú versenyképes csapattá váltak. Kényelmesen elhárították a helyi rivális Fulham kihívását egy kieséses rájátszásban, 1900. április végén 5–1-ig, és megőrizték első osztályú státuszukat.

A csapat eredetileg teljesen sötétkék színben játszott, Mr. Hills ihlette inspirációt, aki korábban az Oxfordi Egyetem " Blue " volt, de a következő szezont megváltoztatta azáltal, hogy átvette az égkék ingeket és a fehér rövidnadrágokat, amelyeket 1897 és 1899 között viseltek.

A klub működtetésével és finanszírozásával kapcsolatos növekvő viták után 1900 júniusában a Thames Ironworks FC feloszlott, majd szinte azonnal újraindult, amikor a West Ham United FC - tükrözve a londoni West Ham körzetet, ahol játszottak - 1900. július 5-én Syd Kingrel, mint menedzserük és leendő menedzserük, Charlie Paynter asszisztenseként. Az eredeti "munkacsapat" gyökerek és kapcsolatok (amelyek még mindig szerepelnek a klub jelvényén) miatt a rajongók és a média körében ezeket továbbra is "Vasaknak" vagy "Kalapácsoknak" nevezik.

West Ham United születése (1901–1961)

A West Ham United az 1901-es szezonban csatlakozott a Nyugati Ligához, miközben továbbra is a Déli 1. divízióban játszott. 1907-ben a West Hamet megkoronázták a Nyugati Liga 1B divízió bajnokává, majd 1–0-ra legyőzte az 1A bajnok Fulham csapatát, és ezzel a Nyugati Ligává vált. Összességében Bajnokok. Az újjászületett csapat továbbra is játszani a játékot a Memorial Grounds A Plaistow (amelyet az Arnold Hills), de költözött egy pályán az Upton Park területén képében a Boleyn Ground stadion 1904-ben a West Ham az első játék az új hazájukban volt a heves riválisok ellen Millwall (ők maguk egy Vasmű csapata, bár egy rivális társaságnak) 10 000 fős tömeget vonz és a West Ham 3–0 győztesével fogy, és ahogy a Daily Mirror 1904. szeptember 2-án írta: „Az időjárás remekül fordul elő a reggeli heves esőzések után a West Ham United tegnap este kezdte a legkedvezőbb szezont amikor az Upton Park új házában 3 góllal 0-ra verték a Millwallt. "

1919-ben még mindig király vezetésével, West Ham bejutott a Football League Second Division , az első játék, hogy egy 1-1-es döntetlent a Lincoln City , és Előresoroltak Division One 1923 is ezzel az első FA-kupa A döntőt a régi Wembley stadionban rendezik . Ellenfeleik a Bolton Wanderers voltak . Ezt White Horse Final néven is ismerték , így nevezték el, mert becslések szerint 200 000 ember jött megnézni a mérkőzést "Billie", egy óriási fehér ló (valójában szürke), akit a PC George Scorey lovagolt meg, a pályára ömlött, amelyet a kirúgás előtt meg kellett tisztítani . Maga a kupadöntő mérkőzése 2–0-ra végződött a Bolton ellen. A csapat felemás sikert aratott az 1. osztályban, de tíz évig megőrizte státuszát, és 1933-ban bejutott az FA-kupa elődöntőjébe.

1932-ben a klub a második osztályba került, és Syd King hosszú távú letétkezelőt menesztették, miután 32 évig menedzser szerepben, 1899 és 1903 között pedig játékosként szolgált. A kiesést követően King mentális egészségi problémákkal küzdött. A testületi ülésen részegen jelent meg, és nem sokkal azután öngyilkos lett. Helyére az irányító asszisztense, Charlie Paynter került , aki 1897 óta számos szerepet töltött be a West Hamnél, és 1950-ig 480 meccsen szolgálta ezt a szerepet. A klub a következő 30 év nagy részét ebben a divízióban töltötte, először Paynter, majd később a korábbi játékos, Ted Fenton vezetésével .

Fentonnak sikerült elérnie, hogy a klub 1958-ban ismét az angol futball legfelsõbb szintjére kerüljön. Malcolm Allison játékos jelentõs közremûködésével Fenton mind a jövõbeli West Ham sztárok kezdeti tételének, mind a West Ham játékszemléletének fejlesztésében segített.

Dicsőségévek (1961–1978)

Ron Greenwoodot 1961-ben nevezték ki Fenton utódjának, aki hamarosan két nagy trófeához vezetett, megnyerve az 1964-es FA-kupa döntőjét . A csapatot a fiatal Bobby Moore vezette . A West Ham megnyerte az Európa Kupagyőztesek Kupáját is . Az 1966-os FIFA-világbajnokság alatt a torna győztes angliai kulcsfontosságú tagjai a West Ham játékosai voltak, köztük a kapitány, Bobby Moore Martin Peters (aki a döntőben gólt szerzett) és Geoff Hurst , aki megszerezte az első és egyetlen mesterhármast a férfi világbajnokság döntőjében. Mindhárom játékos a West Ham ifjúsági csapatán keresztül érkezett.

Van egy "Bajnokok" szobor a Barking Roadon , szemben a The Boleyn Tavernal , emléket állítva West Ham "három fiának", akik segítettek megnyerni az 1966-os világkupát: Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst és Martin Peters. Szintén szerepel a szobor Everton „s Ray Wilson . 1975-ben FA-kupát
is nyertek a Fulham 2–0-s legyőzésével . A Fulham csapatának volt angol kapitánya, Alan Mullery és a West Ham legendája, Bobby Moore volt .

Az 1974–75-ös szezon nehéz kezdete után Greenwood „feljebb lépett”, hogy vezérigazgatóvá váljon, és az igazgatóság tájékoztatása nélkül asszisztensét, John Lyall- t nevezte ki csapatmenedzsernek. Az eredmény azonnali siker volt - a csapat az első négy meccsén összesen 20 gólt szerzett, és megnyerte az FA-kupát, és ez lett az utolsó csapat, amely egy teljes angol csapattal megnyerte az FA-kupát, amikor az 1975-ös döntőben 2–0-ra legyőzte a Fulham csapatát. Ezután Lyall 1976-ban egy másik európai kupagyőztes döntőbe kalauzolta a West Ham-t , bár a csapat 4–2-re elveszítette a mérkőzést a belga Anderlecht ellen . Greenwood vezérigazgatói tisztsége kevesebb mint három évig tartott, mivel Don Revie 1977-es lemondása nyomán Angliát irányították .

Hullámvölgyek (1978–2005)

1978-ban a West Ham ismét a másodosztályba került, de Lyallt megtartották vezetőként, és 1980-ban az utolsó nagy megtiszteltetésnek számító FA-kupa döntő győzelméhez vezetett az Arsenal ellen . Az elődöntőben az Evertont legyőzve jutottak a döntőbe. A Kalapácsok 1–0-ra nyertek, Trevor Brooking fejesből szerzett góljával a 13. percben. Ez figyelemre méltó, mivel a legfelső osztályon kívül egyetlen csapat sem nyerte el a trófeát azóta. A West Ham-et 1981-ben feljutották az első osztályba, és a következő három szezonban az első osztály legjobb tízében végzett, mielőtt 1985–86-ban elérte volna valaha volt bajnoki harmadik helyét a játékosok egy csoportja, amely a The Boys of 86 néven vált ismertté . 1989-ben azonban ismét kiesést szenvedtek, ami Lyall elbocsátását eredményezte. Ő kapta az ex gratia kifizetés £ 100,000, de elhagyta a klubot, amit Lyall mint „nyugtalanító” körülmények között, megérdemli csak 73 szót egy tömör elismeréseként szolgáltatás a klub programban. Lyall 34 év szolgálat után távozott a West Ham-től.

Lyall után Lou Macari röviden vezette a csapatot, bár kevesebb, mint egyetlen szezon után lemondott, hogy tisztázza a nevét az illegális fogadásokkal kapcsolatos állításokról, miközben a Swindon Town menedzsere volt . Helyére a korábbi játékos, Billy Bonds került . Bonds első teljes, 1990–1991-es szezonjában a West Ham ismét bejutott a divízióba. Most visszatérve az élvonalba, a Bonds az egyik legvitatottabb évadban látta a West Ham-et. Mivel a klub kötvényrendszer bevezetését tervezte, tömeges zavargások voltak. A West Ham az utolsó helyen végzett, és csak egy szezon után került vissza a Divízió második osztályába. 1992–93-ban azonban erősen visszapattantak. A Trevor Morley és Clive Allen pontozási 40 gól, akkor garantált magukat a második helyen az utolsó napon a szezon egy 2-0 hazai győzelem ellen Cambridge United , és vele együtt feljutottak a Premier League .

A Premier League csapatában szükség volt a csapat újjáépítésére. Joey Beauchampot, az Oxford United játékosát 1,2 millió fontért fizették be. Röviddel azután, hogy megérkezett a klubba, azonban boldogtalan lett, okaként a szülőhaza oxfordi honvágyát említette. Különösen Bonds nehéznek találta ezt a hozzáállást a saját elkötelezett, soha meg nem halni-megközelítéséhez képest biztosítva Bonds további bizonyítékait a modern játék és a modern játékos bomlásáról. Ötvennyolc nappal később a Swindon Town szerződtette Beauchampot a klubrekord együttes díjaként, 800 000 fontért, amely magában foglalta Adrian Whitbread védő ellenkező irányba haladását is . A Whitbreadet 750 000 fontra becsülték az üzletben.

Asszisztens menedzser Harry Redknapp is most vesz egy nagyobb szerepet átadása játékosok, a klub jóváhagyását. Azzal, hogy régi klubja, az AFC Bournemouth felkészült arra, hogy posztot kínáljon neki, a West Ham igazgatósága és ügyvezetőjük, Peter Storrie vitatott lépést tett. Az igazgatóság alig várta, hogy ne veszítse el Redknapp szolgáltatásait, és felajánlotta Bondsnek, hogy a klub mindennapi ügyeitől távol legyen - a West Ham táblán. Ez lehetővé tette volna számukra Redknapp kinevezését menedzserként. Bonds visszautasította a felajánlott posztot, és elsétált a klubtól. A testület és Redknapp általi csalással és manipulációval kapcsolatos vádjai továbbra is rossz érzéseket okoznak. Peter Storrie azt állította, hogy helyesen kezelték a helyzetet, mondván: "Ha Harry Bournemouthba ment volna, akkor nagy eséllyel Bill mindenképpen lemondott volna, ezért nyeretlen helyzetbe kerültünk. Szomorúak vagyunk, hogy Bill nagy ütés, de itt az ideje továbblépni, és nagyszerű menedzsert neveztünk ki. " Redknapp 1994. augusztus 10-én lett a menedzser.

Redknapp ideje a West Hamnél figyelemre méltó volt a játékosok cseréjével a hivatali ideje alatt, valamint a vonzó futball és siker szintjével, amelyre John Lyall irányítása óta nem volt példa. Több mint 134 játékos áthalad a csapat, miközben ő volt vezetője, ami egy nettó átutalás díja hiány £ 16 millió, annak ellenére, hogy a £ 18 millió eladása Rio Ferdinand a Leeds United . Egyesek kiemelkedően sikeresek voltak, például Stuart Pearce , Trevor Sinclair , Paolo Di Canio , John Hartson , Eyal Berkovic és Ian Wright szerződtetése . Eközben néhány drága, nemzetközi játékos volt, aki megbukott a West Hamnél, például Florin Raducioiu Davor Šuker , aki annyi keresetet keresett, mint egy teljes standból származó bevétel, és mégis csak nyolc alkalommal lépett pályára Christian Bassila , aki 720 000 fontba került, és csak 86 perc focit játszott Titi Camara Gary Charles , akinek a bére 4,4 millió fontot tett ki, de csak három indulást indított a klubnál Rigobert Song Paulo Futre és Marco Boogers játékost gyakran emlegetik a Premier League egyik legnagyobb kudarcaként . Első vezető szezonja során a West Ham az elmúlt hetekig küzdött a kiesés veszélyével, míg harmadik szezonja egy másik kiesési csatát is folytat. Mindig hajlandó belépni az átigazolási piacra, Redknapp megvette a téli átigazolási időszakot John Hartson és Paul Kitson, akik megadták a szükséges lendületet a szezon végén.

1999-ben a West Ham az ötödik helyen végzett, 1986 óta a legmagasabb helyezés az élvonalban. Az Intertoto-kupát is megnyerve a francia Metz klubot legyőzve kvalifikálta magát az 1999–2000-es UEFA-kupára . A dolgok kezdtek akadozni Redknapp számára, mivel 18 millió fontot értékesítettek a Rio Ferdinandi Leedsnek. Redknapp rosszul használta fel az átutalási pénzt olyan vásárlásokkal, mint Ragnvald Soma , aki 800 000 fontba került, és csak hét bajnokit játszott, a Camara és a Song . Redknapp úgy érezte, hogy több pénzre van szüksége ahhoz, hogy üzleteljen a transzferpiacon. Brown elnök elvesztette türelmét Redknapp iránt, mivel további átutalási igényeket követelt. 2001 júniusában, miután találkozóra hívta Brownt, és a szerződések megvitatására számított, elbocsátották. Segédje, Frank Lampard is távozott , elkerülhetetlenné téve fia, Frank Lampard ifjabb eladását 2001 nyarán 11 millió fontért csatlakozott a Chelsea- hez.

Számos névvel, például Alan Curbishley volt játékossal , aki most a munkához kapcsolódik, Brown elnök a klubból toborzott, és 2001. május 9-én kinevezte menedzserként Glenn Roedert , a tartalékcsapat edzőjét . Ő már kudarcot vallott Gillinghamnél , ahol elvesztette Az általa irányított 35 meccsből 22 és Watford . Első nagy aláírása Don Hutchison visszatérése 5 millió fontért és a cseh középhátvéd Tomáš Řepka volt . Az első idényében a hetedik helyen végzett Roeder, az Upton Park irodájában, elzáródott eret kapott az agyában. Mivel Roedernek orvosi segítségre és gyógyulásra volt szüksége, Trevor Brooking volt ügyvivő ügyvezetőként állt be. Annak ellenére, hogy nem veszített újabb mérkőzést, a Kalapácsok a szezon utolsó napján kiestek a Birmingham City-be, és egy 38 meccses idényből 42 ponttal rendelkező klub rekordja volt. A csúcsfutball tíz évada lejárt. Számos legjobb játékos, köztük Joe Cole , Di Canio és Kanouté, mind elhagyta a klubot.

A következő szezonban, immár a második rangban, Roeder folytatta menedzser posztját. Az eredmények azonban továbbra is gyengék voltak, és a Rotherham United idegenbeli veresége után 2003. augusztus 24-én elbocsátották. Brooking ismét gondnok lett. Csak egy meccset veszített el, 2–0-s idegenbeli vereséget szenvedett Gillingham ellen, és úgy hívják, hogy „a legjobb irányító West Ham soha nem volt”.

A Crystal Palace egykori játékosát és a Reading menedzserét Alan Pardew állította fel a következő padfőnöknek. Reading és elnökük , John Madejski azonban vonakodtak távozni. Miután felmondási időt és kertészeti szabadságot töltött le, és miután West Ham 380 000 font kártérítést fizetett Readingnek, 2003. október 18-án kinevezték igazgatónak, tizedik vezetőjüknek. Pardew újjáépíteni kezdte Nigel Reo-Cokert , Marlon Harewoodot és Brian Deane-t . Az első felelős idényében a rájátszás döntőjébe kerültek, hogy csak a Crystal Palace ellen szenvedjenek vereséget. Ő dedikálások a Bobby Zamora , Matthew Etherington és veteránok Chris Powell és Teddy Sheringham látta West Ham befejező hatodik, majd megverte a Preston North End 1-0 köszönhetően a Zamora célt a 2005 rájátszásban végleges , biztosítva a visszatérést a Premier League-ben. A továbbjutás biztosítása után Pardew azt mondta: "Ez egy csapatmunka. Jól védekeztünk, és visszatértünk oda, ahová tartozunk."

A Boleyn utolsó évei (2005–2016)

Hazatérve a felső osztály, a West Ham a kilencedik helyen, a csúcspontja a 2005-06 szezonban azonban az volt, elérte a FA-kupa döntőjét , és figyelembe kedvencek Liverpool a Penalty után 3-3. A West Ham elvesztette a szétlövéseket, de ennek ellenére bejutott a következő szezon UEFA-kupájába, mivel a Liverpool már bejutott a Bajnokok Ligájába . 2006 augusztusában a West Ham az átigazolási időszak utolsó napján jelentős puccsot hajtott végre, miután befejezte Carlos Tevez és Javier Mascherano aláírását . A klubot végül egy Eggert Magnússon vezette izlandi konzorcium vásárolta meg 2006 novemberében. Alan Pardew menedzsert a szezon rossz formája után menesztették, helyére Alan Curbishley, a Charlton Athletic korábbi vezetője került .

Mascherano és Tevez aláírását a Premier League vizsgálta, akik aggódtak amiatt, hogy az átigazolások részleteit kihagyták a hivatalos nyilvántartásból. A klubot bűnösnek találták, és 2007 áprilisában 5,5 millió fontra büntették. A West Ham azonban elkerülte a pontlevonást, amely végül kritikussá vált a kiesés elkerülésében a 2006–2007-es szezon végén . Ezt az eseményt követően a Wigan Athletic elnöke, Dave Whelan , akit az esetleges kiesés előtt álló többi fél támogatott, köztük a Fulham és a Sheffield United , jogi lépésekkel fenyegetett. A West Ham megúszta a kiesést azzal, hogy legutóbbi kilenc meccséből hetet megnyert, beleértve az Arsenal elleni 1–0-s győzelmet, és a szezon utolsó napján Tevez góljával 1–0-ra legyőzte az újonnan megkoronázott Ligabajnokok bajnokát, a Manchester Unitedet .

A 2007–08-as szezonban a West Ham meglehetősen következetesen a bajnokság első felében maradt, Freddie Ljungberg volt a csapatban, a rengeteg sérülés ellenére az új szerződő Craig Bellamy kihagyta a kampány nagy részét, míg Kieron Dyer 2007 augusztusától volt távol. A szezon utolsó meccsén, a Boleyn Groundon a West Ham 2–2-es döntetlent játszott az Aston Villa ellen , ezzel biztosítva a tizedik helyen végzett három pontot megelőzve a rivális Tottenham Hotspurt . Öt hely javulás volt az előző szezonhoz képest, és ami a legfontosabb: a West Hamet soha nem fenyegette reális kiesés veszélye.

Miután egy sor a testület felett értékesítése védők Anton Ferdinand és George McCartney a Sunderland , menedzser Alan Curbishley lemondott 2008. szeptember 3-Utóda egykori Chelsea csatára Gianfranco Zola , aki átvette 2008. szeptember 11 lesz a klub első nem -Brit menedzser. A 2008–2009-es szezonban a West Ham a kilencedik helyen végzett, egyetlen hely javítással.

A 2009–10-es szezonban a West Ham erősen kezdett, 2–0-s győzelemmel az újonnan feljutott Wolverhampton Wanderers ellen Mark Noble és újonnan kinevezett kapitány, Matthew Upson góljaival . A Liga Kupa mérkőzése a régi riválisok, a Millwall ellen erőszakos zavargásokat okozott a talajon kívül, valamint pályainváziókat és tömegproblémákat okozott az Upton Parkban . 2009 augusztusában az izlandi tulajdonosok anyavállalatainak pénzügyi aggályai miatt a jelenlegi tulajdonosok nem tudtak anyagi fedezetet biztosítani, amíg új tulajdonost nem találtak. A klub mezszponzora, az SBOBET segítséget nyújtott a klubnak egy nagyon szükséges csatár, az olasz Alessandro Diamanti megvásárlásához .

A West Hamnek rossz volt a szezonja, ami elhúzódó csatát jelentett a kiesés ellen. Végül két hátralévő játékkal biztosították túlélésüket a Wigan 3–2-es legyőzésével. A klubnak 38 meccsből 35 pontot sikerült megszereznie, héttel kevesebbet, mint a hét évvel ezelőtti kieséskor megszerzett összérték. 2010. május 11-én, két nappal a 2009–10-es szezon vége után a West Ham bejelentette Zola szerződésének azonnali hatályú felmondását. 2010. június 3-án Avram Grant négyéves szerződést írt alá a munkavállalási engedélyhez kötött West Ham következő vezetőjévé . A West Ham formája továbbra is gyenge volt, a csapat ritkán esett ki a kiesési zónán kívül, ami komoly kétségekbe vonta Grant menedzseri jövőjét. A Manchester United elleni 4–0 - s Labdarúgó Ligakupa negyeddöntő-győzelem egyébként fényes pont volt a kiábrándító szezonban. A West Ham Premier League-ben szereplő formája a két hazai kupában nem befolyásolta a formájukat. A kalapácsok eljutottak a Ligakupa elődöntőjébe, mielőtt a későbbi győztes Birmingham City kiesett , valamint az FA-kupa negyeddöntőjébe a Stoke City 2–1-es veresége előtt .

2011. május 15-én megerősítették a West Ham kiesését a bajnokságba, miután Wigan visszatért a DW Stadionban . Mivel a West Ham 0–2-re vezetett a félidőben két Demba Ba- gól révén, Wigan visszavágott a 3–2-es győzelemért Charles N'Zogbia hozzáadott idejű sztrájkjának köszönhetően . Miután a veszteség, a West Ham bejelentette zsákolás menedzser Avram Grant csak egy szezonban az ő hivatali ideje. 2011. június 1-jén Sam Allardyce- t nevezték ki igazgatónak Grant helyetteseként.

A klub 86 ponttal a harmadik helyen végzett a 2011–12-es labdarúgó-bajnokságban , és részt vett a rájátszásban. Összességében 5–0-ra legyőzték a Cardiff Cityt a rájátszás elődöntőjében, így bejutottak a Blackpool elleni döntőbe 2012. május 19-én, a Wembley -ben. Carlton Cole nyitotta a gólt, és bár a Blackpool a második félidő elején egyenlített, Ricardo Vaz Tê gólt szerzett a West Ham győztese a 87. percben.

A West Ham a Premier League-be visszatérve állandó szerződésekkel szerződtette a korábbi játékosokat, James Colllins-t és George McCartney -t, valamint kölcsönbe adta Matt Jarvis és Andy Carroll rekordját . A szezon első meccsét, 2012. augusztus 18-án, 1–0-ra nyerték az Aston Villa ellen Kevin Nolan góljának köszönhetően . A szezon első felének csúcspontja a 3–1-es hazai győzelem volt a regnáló Európa-bajnok Chelsea ellen 2012. december 1-jén, amely a nyolcadik, az év végén pedig a 12. helyet szerezte meg. 2013. március 22-én a West Ham 99 éves bérleti szerződést kötött az Olimpiai Stadionon , amelyet a tervek szerint a 2016–17-es szezontól fognak otthonaiként használni. A tizedik helyet a szezon végén kilenc hazai győzelemmel és csak három idegenben biztosították. Mindössze 11 idegenbeli gól született, ez a legalacsonyabb az egész bajnokságban.

Az 2013-14-es , West Ham kész 13. a Premier League-ben. Eljutottak a Ligakupa elődöntőjébe is, mielőtt összesített 9–0-s vereséget szenvedtek volna a későbbi kupagyőztes Manchester Citytől . A szezon egyik jellemzője Sam Allardyce menedzser kritikája volt a szurkolók részéről a vélt negatív játék taktikájával kapcsolatban. A West Ham a 2014–15-ös Premier League 12. helyén végzett , egy hellyel magasabb, mint az előző szezonban. Percekkel a szezon utolsó meccse után, 2015. május 24-én a klub bejelentette, hogy az Allardyce szerződését nem hosszabbítják meg, és új menedzsert keresnek. Azzal, hogy megnyerte a Premier League Fair Play 2014–15 közötti tabelláját , a West Ham bejutott a 2015–16-os UEFA Európa Ligába , és bejutott az első selejtezőkörbe.

2015. június 9-én Slaven Bilićet , a West Ham korábbi játékost nevezték ki irányítónak hároméves szerződéssel. Bilić negyedik játékában a csapat 52 év óta először nyert az Anfielden , 0–3-ra legyőzve a Liverpoolt Manuel Lanzini , Mark Noble és Diafra Sakho góljaival . A szezon végén a West Ham a 7. helyen végzett a Premier League-ben. A csapat több rekordot döntött a klubnál a Premier League korszakában, beleértve a legtöbb pontot (62), a legtöbb gólt egy szezonban (65), a legkevesebbet elvesztett meccseket (8) és a legkevesebbet idegenbeli vereségek (5). A szezon az elmúlt szezont is jelentette, amikor a csapat a Boleyn Groundon játszott, a következő szezontól a londoni stadionba költöztek - ezzel befejezték a stadionban töltött 112 éves tartózkodásukat.

Költözés a London Stadionba és az elmúlt évek (2016–)

A Manchester United 2016-os FA-kupa-döntőbeli győzelmét követően a West Ham megszerezte az Európa Liga-helyét, és bejutott a 2016–17-es kiadás harmadik selejtezőkörébe . A nehéz első szezon végén a londoni stadionban a csapat a 11. helyen végzett, valamint a sztárember, Dimitri Payet távozásával kellett megküzdenie . A csapat azonban gyengén kezdte a következő szezont, csak két győzelmet aratott a nyitó 11 meccsén. A Liverpool otthonában elszenvedett 4–1-es vereséget követően és a kieséstől fenyegetett csapattal Bilićet 2017. november 6-án menesztették. A szezon végéig szerződött David Moyes , a Sunderland egykori főnöke . A csapat a szezon hátralévő részében következetlen formával küzdött, de sikerült elkerülnie a kiesést és a 13. helyet szerezte meg. Moyes nem kapott új szerződést, és 2018. május 16-án lejárt a klubtól.

2018. május 22-én a klub kinevezte a Manchester City korábbi főnökét, Manuel Pellegrinit új menedzserként hároméves szerződéssel. Első felelős idényében a kalapácsok a 10. helyen végeztek, ismét következetlen formában szenvedtek. A következő szezon gyenge első felét követően azonban Pellegrinit 2019 decemberében menesztették, és a csapat csak egy ponttal volt a kiesési zóna fölött. Utolsó meccse 2–1 volt a Leicester City elleni hazai vereség. Helyére David Moyes került, aki egy nappal később visszatért egy második varázslatért.

2020. július 22-én a klub újabb szezonra biztosította Premier League státuszát, miután a Manchester United idegenben 1–1-es döntetlent játszott. A 2020–21-es szezon előtt a West Ham tulajdonjoga kritikát váltott ki, többek között Mark Noble klubkapitány részéről is, aki nyilvánosan kritizálta az akadémiai végzettségű Grady Diangana eladását . Annak ellenére, hogy elvesztette a szezon nyitó két mérkőzését, a West Ham formája javult, és november végére a klub az ötödik helyre került. A klub a szezon hátralévő részében nem esett ki egy európai helyről, és továbbjutott a 2021–22-es UEFA Európa Liga csoportkörébe, miután a 6. helyen végzett - sok várakozást felülmúlva. Moyes új 3 éves szerződést írt alá 2021. június 12-én.

Origini

Cea mai veche încarnare general acceptată a West Ham United a fost fondată în 1895 sub numele de Thames Ironworks FC , echipa de lucrări a celui mai mare și ultimul constructor de nave din Tamisa, Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company , de către maistru și arbitru al ligii locale Dave Taylor și proprietarul Arnold Hills și a fost anunțat în Thames Ironworks Gazette din iunie 1895. Thames Ironworks își avea sediul în Leamouth Wharf din Blackwall și Canning Town de pe ambele maluri ale râului Lea , unde Lea se întâlnește cu Tamisa . Thames Ironworks a construit multe nave și alte structuri, cea mai faimoasă fiind HMS Warrior . Ultima navă construită acolo a fost dreadnought-ul HMS Thunderer în 1912 și curtea a fost închisă la scurt timp.

Curtea de reparații a Castle Shipping Line era un vecin foarte apropiat, iar echipa lor de lucru, cunoscută inițial sub numele de Castle Swift , s-ar contopi informal cu echipa proprie a Thames Ironworks.

Echipa a jucat pe o bază strict amatorică pentru cel puțin 1895, cu o echipă cu un număr de angajați. Thomas Freeman era pompier de nave și Walter Parks, funcționar. Johnny Stewart , Walter Tranter și James Lindsay erau toți fabricanți de cazane. Printre alți angajați se numărau William Chapman, George Sage și Fred Chamberlain, precum și ucenicul nituitor Charlie Dove , care avea să aibă o mare influență asupra viitorului clubului la o dată ulterioară.

Thames Ironworks a câștigat West Ham Charity Cup , disputată de cluburi din localitatea West Ham , în 1895, apoi a câștigat Liga Londra în 1897. Au devenit profesioniști în 1898 la intrarea în Divizia a doua a Ligii de Sud și au fost promovați în Prima Divizie la prima încercare. În anul următor au ajuns pe locul doi de jos, dar s-au stabilit ca o echipă competitivă cu drepturi depline. Au apărat confortabil provocarea rivalilor locali Fulham într-un play-off de retrogradare, 5-1 la sfârșitul lunii aprilie 1900 și și-au păstrat statutul de Primă Divizie.

Echipa a jucat inițial în kituri complet albastru închis, inspirat de domnul Hills, care fusese un „ Blue ” al Universității Oxford , dar s-a schimbat în sezonul următor adoptând combinația de cămăși albastre și pantaloni scurți albi, purtată în perioada 1897-1899.

După disputele tot mai mari cu privire la funcționarea și finanțarea clubului, în iunie 1900 Thames Ironworks FC a fost desființată, apoi aproape imediat relansată ca West Ham United FC - reflectând West Ham , districtul londonez unde au jucat - pe 5 iulie 1900 cu Syd King ca managerul lor și viitorul manager Charlie Paynter în calitate de asistent al acestuia. Datorită rădăcinilor și legăturilor originale ale „echipei de lucru” (încă reprezentate pe insigna clubului), acestea sunt încă cunoscute sub numele de „Fierile” sau „Ciocanele” printre fani și mass-media.

Nașterea West Ham United (1901-1961)

West Ham United s-a alăturat Ligii de Vest pentru sezonul 1901, în timp ce continua să joace în Divizia Sud 1. În 1907, West Ham a fost încoronat Campionii Ligii de Vest 1B, apoi a învins campionii 1A Fulham 1-0 pentru a deveni Liga de Vest Campioni de ansamblu. Clubul renăscut a continuat să-și joace jocurile la Memorial Grounds din Plaistow (finanțat de Arnold Hills), dar sa mutat într-un teren din zona Upton Park sub masca stadionului Boleyn Ground în 1904. Primul joc al West Ham în noua lor casă a fost împotriva rivalilor înverșunați Millwall (ei înșiși o echipă Ironworks, deși pentru o companie rivală) atrăgând o mulțime de 10.000 și cu West Ham alergând 3-0 câștigători și, așa cum a scris Daily Mirror la 2 septembrie 1904, „Favorizat de vremea care se întoarce bine după ploi abundente de dimineață, West Ham United și-a început sezonul cel mai favorabil ieri seară când l-au învins pe Millwall cu 3 goluri la 0 pe noua lor incintă de la Upton Park. "

În 1919, încă sub conducerea lui King, West Ham a câștigat intrarea în Divizia a doua a Ligii de fotbal , primul lor joc fiind egalul 1-1 cu Lincoln City și a fost promovat în Divizia 1 în 1923, ajungând, de asemenea, la prima FA Cup Finala va avea loc pe vechiul stadion Wembley . Adversarii lor erau Bolton Wanderers . Aceasta a fost cunoscută și sub denumirea de White Horse Final , numită astfel pentru că aproximativ 200.000 de oameni au venit să vadă meciul revărsându-se pe teren, care a trebuit să fie eliminat înainte de lansare, de către „Billie”, un cal alb uriaș (de fapt gri) fiind călărit de PC George Scorey . Meciul finalei Cupei în sine s-a încheiat cu 2-0 pentru Bolton. Echipa sa bucurat de un succes mixt în Divizia 1, dar și-a păstrat statutul timp de zece ani și a ajuns în semifinala Cupei FA în 1933.

În 1932, clubul a fost retrogradat în Divizia a II-a, iar custodele pe termen lung Syd King a fost demis după ce a servit clubul în rolul de manager timp de 32 de ani și ca jucător din 1899 până în 1903. După retrogradare, King a avut probleme de sănătate mintală. A apărut beat la o ședință a consiliului de administrație și, la scurt timp, sa sinucis. El a fost înlocuit cu asistentul său manager Charlie Paynter , care însuși fusese cu West Ham în mai multe roluri din 1897 și care a continuat să servească echipa în acest rol până în 1950 pentru un total de 480 de jocuri. Clubul a petrecut majoritatea următorilor 30 de ani în această divizie, mai întâi sub Paynter și apoi mai târziu sub conducerea fostului jucător Ted Fenton .

Fenton a reușit să promoveze clubul din nou la nivelul cel mai înalt al fotbalului englez în 1958. Cu aportul considerabil al jucătorului Malcolm Allison , Fenton a contribuit la dezvoltarea atât a lotului inițial al viitoarelor vedete din West Ham, cât și a abordării lui West Ham asupra jocului.

Ani de glorie (1961-1978)

Ron Greenwood a fost numit succesor al lui Fenton în 1961 și a condus în curând clubul la două trofee majore, câștigând finala Cupei FA din 1964 . Echipa a fost condusă de tânărul Bobby Moore . West Ham a câștigat și Cupa Europei . În timpul Cupei Mondiale FIFA din 1966 , membrii cheie ai câștigătorilor turneului Anglia au fost jucătorii West Ham, inclusiv căpitanul, Bobby Moore Martin Peters (care a marcat în finală) și Geoff Hurst , care a marcat primul și singurul hat-trick într-o finală a Cupei Mondiale masculine . Toți cei trei jucători au venit prin echipa de tineret de la West Ham.

Există o statuie „Campioni” în Barking Road , vizavi de Taverna Boleyn , care comemorează „cei trei fii” ai lui West Ham care au ajutat la câștigarea Cupei Mondiale din 1966: Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst și Martin Peters. De asemenea, inclus pe statuie este Ray Wilson al lui Everton . De asemenea, au câștigat Cupa FA în 1975, învingând Fulham cu 2-0. Echipa Fulham i-a avut pe foștii căpitani ai Angliei, Alan Mullery, și legenda West Ham, Bobby Moore .

După un început dificil al sezonului 1974–75, Greenwood s-a mutat „la etaj” pentru a deveni director general și, fără a informa consiliul, și-a numit asistentul John Lyall în funcția de manager de echipă. Rezultatul a fost un succes instantaneu - echipa a marcat 20 de goluri în primele patru meciuri combinate și a câștigat FA Cup, devenind ultima echipă care a câștigat Cupa FA cu o echipă complet engleză când a învins Fulham cu 2-0 în finala din 1975. Lyall l-a ghidat apoi pe West Ham spre o altă finală a Cupei Cupelor Europene din 1976, deși echipa a pierdut meciul cu 4-2 în fața echipei belgiene Anderlecht . Mandatul lui Greenwood ca director general a durat mai puțin de trei ani, deoarece a fost numit să conducă Anglia după demisia lui Don Revie în 1977.

Sus și coborâșuri (1978-2005)

În 1978, West Ham a fost retrogradat în Divizia a Doua, dar Lyall a fost păstrat în calitate de manager și a condus echipa la victoria finalei Cupei FA împotriva Arsenalului în 1980, ultima lor onoare majoră. Au ajuns în finală învingându-l pe Everton în semifinală. Hammers a câștigat cu 1-0, cu un gol marcat dintr-o lovitură de cap a lui Trevor Brooking în minutul 13. Acest lucru este remarcabil, deoarece nici o echipă din afara diviziei de vârf nu a câștigat trofeul de atunci. West Ham a fost promovat în Divizia 1 în 1981 și a terminat în primii zece din prima divizie pentru următoarele trei sezoane, înainte de a obține cel mai înalt clasament al ligii de până la 3 în 1985-86 un grup de jucători care a devenit cunoscut sub numele de The Boys of 86 . Cu toate acestea, au suferit din nou retrogradarea în 1989, ceea ce a dus la demiterea lui Lyall. El a primit o plată ex gratia de 100.000 de lire sterline, dar a părăsit clubul în ceea ce Lyall a descris ca circumstanțe „supărătoare”, meritând doar 73 de cuvinte într-o recunoaștere concisă a serviciului său în programul clubului. Lyall a părăsit West Ham după 34 de ani de serviciu.

După Lyall, Lou Macari a condus pe scurt echipa, deși a demisionat după mai puțin de un sezon pentru a-și șterge numele de acuzațiile de pariuri ilegale în timp ce era managerul orașului Swindon Town . El a fost înlocuit de fostul jucător Billy Bonds . În primul sezon complet al lui Bonds, 1990–91 , West Ham și-a asigurat din nou promovarea în Divizia 1. Acum, înapoi în top, Bonds a văzut West Ham printr-unul dintre cele mai controversate sezoane ale lor. Întrucât clubul intenționa să introducă o schemă de obligațiuni , a existat neliniște de mulțime. West Ham a terminat ultimul și a retrogradat în Divizia Două după un singur sezon. Cu toate acestea, au revenit puternic în 1992-1993. Cu Trevor Morley și Clive Allen înscriind 40 de goluri, aceștia și-au garantat locul al doilea în ultima zi a sezonului, cu o victorie cu 2-0 pe teren propriu împotriva Cambridge United , și odată cu promovarea în Premier League .

Cu echipa din Premier League, a fost nevoie să se reconstruiască echipa. Jucătorul de la Oxford United , Joey Beauchamp, a fost recrutat pentru o taxă de 1,2 milioane de lire sterline. La scurt timp după ce a ajuns la club, el a devenit însă nemulțumit, motivând dorul de casă de la Oxfordul natal, drept motiv. În special, obligațiunile au găsit această atitudine greu de înțeles în comparație cu propria sa abordare angajată, care nu se spune niciodată oferind dovezi suplimentare ale lui Bonds despre decăderea jocului modern și a jucătorului modern. Cincizeci și opt de zile mai târziu, Beauchamp a fost semnat de Swindon Town pentru o taxă combinată record de club de 800.000 de lire sterline care îl includea pe fundașul Adrian Whitbread care mergea în direcția opusă. Whitbread a fost evaluat la 750.000 de lire sterline în tranzacție.

Adjunctul managerului Harry Redknapp a avut, de asemenea, un rol mai important în transferul de jucători, cu aprobarea clubului. Cu zvonurile despre faptul că vechiul său club AFC Bournemouth era pregătit să-i ofere o funcție, consiliul de administrație al West Ham și directorul lor general, Peter Storrie , au făcut o mișcare controversată. Consiliul de administrație a fost nerăbdător să nu piardă serviciile Redknapp și i-a oferit lui Bonds un loc departe de afacerile cotidiene ale clubului - în consiliul de administrație al West Ham. Acest lucru le-ar fi permis să numească Redknapp ca manager. Bonds a refuzat postul oferit și s-a îndepărtat de club. Acuzațiile sale de înșelăciune și manipulare de către consiliu și de către Redknapp au continuat să provoace rău sentiment. Peter Storrie a susținut că au gestionat situația corect, spunând: „Dacă Harry ar fi mers la Bournemouth, există șanse mari ca Bill să fi demisionat oricum, așa că ne-am aflat într-o situație fără câștig. Suntem tristi că Bill este merge, și este o lovitură mare, dar este timpul să mergem mai departe și am numit un mare manager. " Redknapp a devenit manager la 10 august 1994.

Timpul lui Redknapp la West Ham a fost remarcabil pentru cifra de afaceri a jucătorilor în timpul mandatului său și pentru nivelul de fotbal atractiv și succesul care nu se văzuse încă de la conducerea lui John Lyall. Peste 134 de jucători au trecut prin club în timp ce el era manager, producând un deficit net de comision de transfer de 16 milioane de lire sterline, în ciuda vânzării de 18 milioane de lire sterline a lui Rio Ferdinand către Leeds United . Unele au avut un succes deosebit, precum semnăturile lui Stuart Pearce , Trevor Sinclair , Paolo Di Canio , John Hartson , Eyal Berkovic și Ian Wright . Între timp, unii au fost jucători internaționali scumpi care au eșuat la West Ham, precum Florin Raducioiu Davor Šuker , care a câștigat la fel de mult din salarii, precum veniturile obținute dintr-un întreg stand și totuși a făcut doar opt apariții Christian Bassila , care a costat 720.000 de lire sterline și a jucat doar 86 de minute de fotbal Titi Camara Gary Charles , al cărui salariu s-a ridicat la 4,4 milioane de lire sterline, dar a făcut doar trei starturi pentru club Rigobert Song Paulo Futre și Marco Boogers , un jucător adesea citat drept unul dintre cele mai mari eșecuri din Premier League. Primul său sezon la conducere l-a văzut pe West Ham luptând împotriva amenințării retrogradării până în ultimele săptămâni, în timp ce al treilea sezon al său va vedea, de asemenea, o altă bătălie de retrogradare. Întotdeauna dispus să intre pe piața transferurilor, Redknapp i-a cumpărat în fereastra de transferuri de iarnă pe John Hartson și Paul Kitson, care au adăugat impulsul necesar la finalul sezonului.

În 1999, West Ham a terminat pe locul cinci, cea mai înaltă poziție din topul său din 1986. De asemenea, au câștigat Cupa Intertoto învingându-l pe clubul francez Metz pentru a se califica în Cupa UEFA 1999–2000 . Lucrurile au început să se clatine pentru Redknapp, cu vânzarea de 18 milioane de lire sterline către Leeds din Rio Ferdinand în noiembrie 2000. Redknapp a folosit prost transferul de bani cu achiziții precum Ragnvald Soma , care a costat 800.000 de lire sterline și a jucat doar șapte jocuri din ligă, Camara și Song . Redknapp a simțit că are nevoie de mai multe fonduri pentru a face față pieței transferurilor. Președintele Brown și-a pierdut răbdarea cu Redknapp din cauza cererilor sale de transfer de fonduri suplimentare. În iunie 2001, chemat la o întâlnire cu Brown care se aștepta să discute contracte, a fost concediat. Asistentul său Frank Lampard a plecat și el, făcând inevitabilă vânzarea fiului său Frank Lampard Jr. în vara anului 2001, s-a alăturat echipei Chelsea pentru 11 milioane de lire sterline.

Cu mai multe nume, cum ar fi fostul jucător Alan Curbishley , acum legat de acest post, președintele Brown a recrutat din cadrul clubului, numind antrenorul echipei de rezervă Glenn Roeder în funcția de manager la 9 mai 2001. El a eșuat deja în conducerea cu Gillingham , unde a pierdut 22 din cele 35 de jocuri pe care le-a reușit și Watford . Primele sale mari semnături au fost revenirea lui Don Hutchison pentru 5 milioane de lire sterline și fundașul central ceh Tomáš Řepka . Terminând pe locul șapte în primul său sezon, Roeder, în biroul său din Upton Park , a suferit un vas de sânge blocat în creier. Întrucât Roeder avea nevoie de ajutor medical și de recuperare, fostul stăpân Trevor Brooking a ocupat funcția de manager interimar. În ciuda faptului că nu a pierdut încă un joc, Hammers au fost retrogradate în ultima zi a sezonului la Birmingham City cu un record pentru un club retrogradat de 42 de puncte dintr-un sezon de 38 de jocuri. Zece sezoane de fotbal de top s-au încheiat. Mulți jucători de top, printre care Joe Cole , Di Canio și Kanouté, au părăsit clubul.

În sezonul următor, acum în al doilea nivel, Roeder și-a reluat stagiul de manager. Cu toate acestea, rezultatele au fost încă slabe și, după o înfrângere în deplasare cu Rotherham United , a fost demis la 24 august 2003. Brooking a preluat din nou funcția de îngrijitor. A pierdut doar un joc, o înfrângere cu 2-0 în fața lui Gillingham și este cunoscut drept „cel mai bun manager pe care West Ham nu l-a avut niciodată”.

Fostul jucător al Crystal Palace și manager al Reading Alan Pardew a fost aliniat pentru a fi următorul șef de bancă. Reading și președintele lor, John Madejski , au fost însă reticenți să-l lase să plece. După ce a îndeplinit o perioadă de preaviz și de concediu pentru grădinărit, iar West Ham a plătit compensației 380.000 GBP, a fost numit manager la 18 octombrie 2003, al zecelea manager al acestora. Pardew și-a propus să reconstruiască echipa aducându-i pe Nigel Reo-Coker , Marlon Harewood și Brian Deane . În primul său sezon la conducere, au făcut finala playoff-ului doar pentru a pierde în fața Crystal Palace. Înscrierile sale la Bobby Zamora , Matthew Etherington și veteranii Chris Powell și Teddy Sheringham l-au văzut pe West Ham terminând pe locul șase și ulterior învingându-l pe Preston North End cu 1-0 datorită unui gol al lui Zamora în finala playoff-ului din 2005 , asigurând revenirea în Premier League. După asigurarea promovării, Pardew a spus: „Este un efort de echipă. Ne-am apărat bine și ne-am întors acolo unde ne aparține”.

Anii finali la Boleyn (2005-2016)

La întoarcerea în divizia superioară, West Ham a terminat pe locul nouă, punctul culminant al sezonului 2005-06 , însă, a ajuns în finala Cupei FA și a dus favoritele Liverpool la o lovitură de pedeapsă după o remiză de 3-3. West Ham a pierdut împușcăturile, dar a câștigat totuși intrarea în Cupa UEFA din sezonul următor, deoarece Liverpool s-a calificat deja în Liga Campionilor . În august 2006, West Ham a finalizat o lovitură de stat majoră în ultima zi a perioadei de transfer după finalizarea semnăturilor lui Carlos Tevez și Javier Mascherano . Clubul a fost cumpărat în cele din urmă de un consorțiu islandez , condus de Eggert Magnússon , în noiembrie 2006. Managerul Alan Pardew a fost demis după o formă slabă în timpul sezonului și a fost înlocuit de fostul manager al echipei Charlton Athletic , Alan Curbishley .

Semnăturile lui Mascherano și Tevez au fost cercetate de Premier League, îngrijorat de faptul că detaliile transferurilor au fost omise din înregistrările oficiale. Clubul a fost găsit vinovat și amendat cu 5,5 milioane de lire sterline în aprilie 2007. Cu toate acestea, West Ham a evitat o deducere de puncte care a devenit în cele din urmă critică în evitarea retrogradării lor la sfârșitul sezonului 2006-2007 . În urma acestui eveniment, președintele Wigan Athletic , Dave Whelan , susținut de alte părți care se confruntă cu o posibilă retrogradare, inclusiv Fulham și Sheffield United , au amenințat că vor acționa în justiție. West Ham a scăpat de retrogradare câștigând șapte din ultimele nouă jocuri, inclusiv o victorie cu 1-0 asupra Arsenalului, iar în ultima zi a sezonului a învins nou-încoronat Campionii Ligii Manchester United cu 1-0, cu golul lui Tevez de a termina pe locul 15.

În sezonul 2007-08 , West Ham a rămas în mod rezonabil consecvent în jumătatea superioară a tabelei ligii, cu Freddie Ljungberg în echipă, în ciuda unei serii de accidentări noua semnătură Craig Bellamy a ratat cea mai mare parte a campaniei, în timp ce Kieron Dyer a ieșit din august 2007. Ultimul meci al sezonului, la Boleyn Ground , a văzut West Ham remizând 2-2 împotriva Aston Villa , asigurând un punct zecime trei puncte înaintea rivalilor Tottenham Hotspur . A fost o îmbunătățire de cinci locuri față de sezonul precedent și, cel mai important, West Ham nu a fost niciodată sub nici o amenințare realistă de retrogradare.

După un rând cu consiliul de administrație pentru vânzarea fundașilor Anton Ferdinand și George McCartney către Sunderland , managerul Alan Curbishley a demisionat la 3 septembrie 2008. Succesorul său a fost fostul atacant al Chelsea, Gianfranco Zola , care a preluat la 11 septembrie 2008 pentru a deveni primul non-club al clubului. -Manager britanic. În sezonul 2008-2009 , West Ham a terminat pe locul nouă, o îmbunătățire cu un singur loc.

În sezonul 2009-10 , West Ham a început puternic cu o victorie cu 2-0 asupra nou-promovatei Wolverhampton Wanderers cu goluri de la Mark Noble și nou-numit căpitan Matthew Upson . Un meci din Cupa Ligii împotriva vechilor rivali Millwall a provocat revolte violente în afara solului, precum și invazii de pitch și probleme de mulțime în interiorul Upton Park . În august 2009, preocupările financiare ale proprietarilor islandezi, societățile-mamă, au lăsat actualii proprietari în imposibilitatea de a furniza fonduri până la găsirea unui nou proprietar. Sponsorul de tricouri al clubului, SBOBET, a oferit clubului ajutor pentru achiziționarea unui atacant atât de necesar, italianul Alessandro Diamanti .

West Ham a avut un sezon slab care a implicat o bătălie prelungită împotriva retrogradării. În cele din urmă și-au asigurat supraviețuirea, rămânând două jocuri învingându-l pe Wigan cu 3–2. Clubul a reușit să ia 35 de puncte din 38 de jocuri, cu șapte mai puține decât totalul pe care îl aveau atunci când retrogradase cu șapte ani înainte. La 11 mai 2010, la două zile după sfârșitul sezonului 2009-2010, West Ham a anunțat rezilierea contractului Zola cu efect imediat. La 3 iunie 2010, Avram Grant a semnat un contract de patru ani pentru a deveni următorul manager al West Ham, sub rezerva unui permis de muncă . Forma lui West Ham a continuat să fie slabă, echipa rareori în afara zonei retrogradării, plasând viitorul lui Grant în calitate de manager sub serioase îndoieli. O victorie în sferturile de finală a Cupei Ligii de fotbal cu 4-0 asupra Manchester United a fost un punct luminos în alt sezon într-un sezon dezamăgitor. Forma lui West Ham în Premier League nu le-a afectat forma în cele două cupe interne. Hammers au ajuns în semifinala Cupei Ligii înainte de a fi eliminați de eventualii câștigători Birmingham City , precum și în sfertul de finală al cupei FA înainte de o înfrângere cu 2-1 la Stoke City .

La 15 mai 2011, retrogradarea West Ham în campionat a fost confirmată după revenirea de la Wigan la stadionul DW . Cu West Ham conducând 0-2 la pauză prin două goluri ale lui Demba Ba , Wigan s-a luptat înapoi pentru a câștiga cu 3-2 datorită unei greve suplimentare a lui Charles N'Zogbia . În urma pierderii, West Ham a anunțat demiterea managerului Avram Grant la doar un sezon din mandatul său. La 1 iunie 2011, Sam Allardyce a fost numit manager ca înlocuitor al lui Grant.

Clubul a terminat pe locul trei în Campionatul Ligii de Fotbal 2011–12 cu 86 de puncte și a participat la play-off. Au învins Cardiff City în semifinala play-off-ului cu 5-0, pentru a ajunge la finala împotriva lui Blackpool la Wembley pe 19 mai 2012. Carlton Cole a deschis scorul și, deși Blackpool a egalat la începutul reprizei a doua, Ricardo Vaz Tê a marcat câștigătorul pentru West Ham în minutul 87.

West Ham, la întoarcerea în Premier League, i-a semnat pe foștii jucători James Colllins și George McCartney în acorduri permanente, precum și semnarea recordurilor, Matt Jarvis și Andy Carroll, împrumutate. Au câștigat primul lor joc din sezon, pe 18 august 2012, 1-0 împotriva Aston Villa datorită unui gol al lui Kevin Nolan . Punctul culminant al primei jumătăți a sezonului a fost o victorie cu 3-1 pe teren propriu împotriva campioanei europene în exercițiu Chelsea, la 1 decembrie 2012, care i-a văzut pe poziția a opta și pe locul 12 la sfârșitul anului. La 22 martie 2013, West Ham a obținut un contract de închiriere de 99 de ani pe stadionul olimpic , planificându-l să fie folosit ca teren de acasă din sezonul 2016-17. Locul al zecelea a fost asigurat la sfârșitul sezonului cu nouă victorii pe teren propriu și doar trei în deplasare de acasă. Au fost marcate doar 11 goluri în deplasare, cel mai mic din întreaga ligă.

În 2013-14 , West Ham a terminat pe locul 13 în Premier League. De asemenea, au ajuns în semifinalele Cupei Ligii înainte de a pierde cu 9-0 în total împotriva eventualilor câștigători ai cupei Manchester City . O caracteristică a sezonului au fost criticile adresate de suporteri managerului Sam Allardyce cu privire la tactica sa de joc negativă percepută. West Ham a terminat pe locul 12 în Premier League 2014–15 , cu un loc mai mare decât sezonul precedent. La câteva minute după ultimul joc al sezonului, pe 24 mai 2015, clubul a anunțat că contractul lui Allardyce nu va fi reînnoit și că vor să caute un nou manager. Prin câștigarea mesei Premier League Fair Play pentru 2014–15, West Ham s-a calificat în UEFA Europa League 2015–16 , intrând în prima rundă de calificare.

La 9 iunie 2015, fostul jucător de la West Ham, Slaven Bilić, a fost numit manager pe un contract de trei ani. În cel de-al patrulea joc la conducere al lui Bilić, echipa a câștigat la Anfield pentru prima dată în 52 de ani, învingând Liverpool cu ​​0-3, cu goluri de Manuel Lanzini , Mark Noble și Diafra Sakho . La sfârșitul sezonului, West Ham a terminat pe locul 7 în Premier League. Echipa a doborât mai multe recorduri pentru club în epoca Premier League, inclusiv cel mai mare număr de puncte (62), cel mai mare număr de goluri dintr-un sezon (65), cele mai puține jocuri pierdute într-un sezon (8) și cel mai mic număr de înfrângeri în deplasare (5). Sezonul a marcat, de asemenea, ultimul sezon în care echipa a jucat la Boleyn Ground, iar aceștia s-au mutat pe stadionul din Londra din sezonul viitor - încheind șederea de 112 ani pe stadion.

Mutați-vă pe stadionul din Londra și ultimii ani (2016–)

După victoria lui Manchester United în finala Cupei FA 2016 , West Ham a ocupat locul Europa League și s-a calificat în cea de-a treia rundă de calificare a ediției 2016–17 . La sfârșitul primului sezon dur de pe stadionul din Londra , echipa a terminat pe locul 11, alături de nevoia de a face față plecării omului vedetă Dimitri Payet . Cu toate acestea, echipa a suferit un început slab de sezon următor, obținând doar două victorii în deschiderea celor 11 jocuri. După o înfrângere cu 4-1 împotriva lui Liverpool acasă și cu echipa amenințată de retrogradare, Bilić a fost demis la 6 noiembrie 2017. El a fost înlocuit de fostul șef al Sunderland David Moyes cu contract până la sfârșitul sezonului. Echipa s-a luptat cu o formă inconsistentă pentru restul sezonului, dar a reușit să evite retrogradarea și să termine pe locul 13. Moyes nu a primit un nou contract și a părăsit clubul la expirarea acestuia la 16 mai 2018.

La 22 mai 2018, clubul l-a numit pe fostul șef al Manchester City , Manuel Pellegrini, ca noul manager pe un contract de trei ani. În primul său sezon la conducere, Hammers a terminat pe locul 10, din nou suferind de o formă inconsistentă. Cu toate acestea, după o primă repriză slabă în sezonul următor, Pellegrini a fost demis în decembrie 2019, echipa fiind la doar un punct deasupra zonei retrogradării. Ultimul său joc la conducere a fost o pierdere cu 2-1 pe teren propriu, în fața Leicester City. El a fost înlocuit de David Moyes, care s-a întors pentru o a doua vrăjie la conducere o zi mai târziu.

La 22 iulie 2020, clubul și-a asigurat statutul de Premier League pentru un alt sezon, după o remiză cu 1-1 în deplasare la Manchester United. Înaintea sezonului 2020–21 , proprietatea West Ham a atras critici, inclusiv de la căpitanul clubului, Mark Noble, care a criticat public vânzarea absolventului academiei Grady Diangana . În ciuda pierderii primelor două jocuri ale sezonului, forma lui West Ham s-a îmbunătățit și, până la sfârșitul lunii noiembrie, clubul se afla pe locul cinci. Clubul nu a renunțat dintr-un loc european pentru restul sezonului și a continuat calificarea pentru fazele grupelor UEFA Europa League 2021–22 după ce a terminat pe locul 6 - depășind multe așteptări. Moyes a semnat un nou contract pe 3 ani pe 12 iunie 2021.
