Ranked: 11th in Premier League

West Ham United Football Club is a professional football club based in Stratford, East London, England.

The club was founded in 1895 as Thames Ironworks and reformed in 1900 as West Ham United. They moved to the Boleyn Ground in 1904, which remained their home ground for more than a century. The team initially competed in the Southern League and Western League before joining the Football League in 1919. They were promoted to the top flight in 1923, when they were also losing finalists in the first FA Cup Final held at Wembley. In 1940, the club won the inaugural Football League War Cup.

West Ham have been winners of the FA Cup three times, in 1964, 1975, and 1980, and have also been runners-up twice, in 1923, and 2006. The club have reached two major European finals, winning the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1965 and finishing runners-up in the same competition in 1976. West Ham also won the Intertoto Cup in 1999. They are one of eight clubs never to have fallen below the second tier of English football, spending 59 of 91 league seasons in the top flight, up to and including the 2016–17 season. The club's highest league position to date came in 1985–86 when they achieved third place in the then First Division.

Three West Ham players were members of the 1966 World Cup final-winning England team: captain Bobby Moore and goalscorers Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.

Y jimenez cuando..

I need something new to improve this lot

Es el mejor jugador de la premier dentro del area

Still got the 87 flashback

It's a shame Fifa 19 sucks dick, by far the worst Fifa I've played, hopefully Fifa 20 will be better...


Here’s the stats. Not bad at all Min goal average

Outcast/old fashioned striker

Yet he didn't make BBC's team of the week, which coincidentally highlighted that 4 SUBSTITUTES were in the team. Don't worry though, Sergio Aguero was there with his offsides goal.

El mejor de la historia SIUUUUU XDXD

What a great player he is Hernandez scores a lot of goals inside of the box ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

My top player of the season so far is Chicarito the Great ever

Tom Warne what do you think reckon you’ll get him 😜

Swap pace and passing round

Hell yeah!!!!!

Falling over 100

Dean Ashton in this quarter-final... 😍 #OTD ... See moreSee less

13 years ago today....


Comment on Facebook

I honestly and truly believe that this guy would have been one of the West Ham greats if it wasn't for that injury.

He would’ve been up there with Beardsley, Shearer & Sheringham

Should of won it that year... Still hate Gerrard 😠😠

I rate him as my favourite ever West Ham striker! The season of the FA cup final is the reason I chose to support the mighty irons (also my dad made me 😂)

West Ham and England missed out when he had to retire. Pardew says Ashtons absence was a key factor in things going wrong for him at West Ham

That tackle by Reo-Coker in the build up to the second goal doesn’t get the credit it deserves

Last decent striker we ever had.

The reason I worry every time one of our better players is called up to international duty.

He scored a brilliant goal in Mark Noble's testimonial

When we used to try to win cup games......

And people rave about Arnautovic, Ashton was top quality, such a shame his career was cut short by injury. #Englandsnumberone

I am positive he would have gone on to be real legend and possible record goal scorer had he not been crocked by SWP.

always makes me sad when I think of Ashton. Although we would never have been able to hold on to him he would probably have been one of the best strikers of his generation.........

England national team always lost their championship because of miss this lad. #coyi

Such a shame he got injured and had to cut his career short. Was a great player and would have scored a lot of goals for us ⚒

Dean Ashton... probably would have went on to be a great for the Mighty Hammers...

He would have been so good

That was a looooong journey home. 5am

What a great player someone we miss today, we need to buy another deano

Dean Ashton was a massive loss to English football, I’m convinced he would have gone on to be an all time great.

I was there that night. Tv had made it a midweek game so they could have 4 qurter finals over 4 days. I remember crossing the road on the way to the ground and seeing the destination on a double decker bus was Ashton. I told everyone he would score. It was fate.

One of the best players I have ever seen, great shame he had to retire because of injury.

The last proper number 9 West Ham had

That first goal is still my all-time favourite. I don’t think anyone in the league but Deano could’ve pulled off that link-up play, skill and finish.

He was some player, flicking the ball for himself with his right foot and scoring with his left. That first goal was brilliant. The second was well-worked by all concerned.

Congratulations Ben and maybe pelligrine might put you in the first team or you could go on lone somewhere ⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒

Need to get played cresswell and masuaku ain’t good enough

Ben Hacker-Hughes legendary

You should really give him a rotational role or put him out on loan where he’s started every week as I saw the City game the other week and he seriously has potential.

give him more playing time

Wait.. Haven't seen Masuaku play haha totally forgot about the lad. Where is he?

If nothing else this lad should be bloody quick 🙂

OMG! Next best superstar. So excited!!!!!!! Wait? Put some real signing up like we’ve got payet back or something!

Just stay off the roids this time 😋🇨🇦

Congratulations Johnson ⚒⚒⚒

Nice 1 Ben Johnson, just love it when the youth stay committed to the club, would have been nice to keep Domingos Quina and maybe we can still persuade Edmilson Fernandes to stay, who knows...

So good they named a Road in Stepney after him.


Well done Ben welcome to the academy of life.

Good luck son soon ur b in the 1st team keep working hard COYI

thats good promising guy

No good if you don’t give him a game, played him against Man City, the lad does ok then don’t make the bench for the rest of the season 😡

Good Luck Ben

Well done Ben. Hope you start playing more and have a great career with us.
