Ranked: 10th 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.

”I know I can get better for sure. Maybe going forward a bit more, my tactical side of the game; when to drop in as a centre-half and when to push up. I’m still only 20 years old. I’m learning and I’m trying to get better.” - Declan Rice ... See moreSee less

You're a fantastic player Dec, and can only get better. We hope to see you for many years at West Ham.

You are playing quite well son. Some great defensive work against Newcastle and some defense piercing forward passes. However glad about your attitude to improve more. Now pass that attitude onto some of your team mates. Proud of you Declan. God bless.

Great player. Great vision and will be a top class player. Let's hope we can keep hold of him.

Maybe a few others need to do it and take your advice , you are good now let alone in the future love you Declan xx

Keep working hard Declan. You will be world class ⚒⚒ hopefully we can see you in Claret and Blue for a few years to come yet!

God love a Trier son and you are defo that ⚒⚒⚒

Newcastle showed us what to expect ahead ,I hope we bring in more attacking players

If rest of team had your quality and effort we would be a fine team

Agreed if he stays with us long enough the best is yet to come!!!

Love him. One of the hardest workers in the team week in, week out.

Just do what you’re doing and the rest will come with the right attitude. If they all had your work ethic, we’d be pushing top 6. ⚒💪💙

no doubt you'll be gone when the big clubs come calling like they all do!

you are a great player for the club and have serious potential, you are like a young Noble and look at him now

You need to coach some of the others I reckon.

Great attitude Declan, keep on going, do the best you can, give it all you can, that’s what being a Hammer is about. Looking forward to seeing you in action in the coming season. COYI

Declan has great teacher in tactics - Nobes, it s sure he learnt and is going to learn more and more

We pass the ball to each other to much instead of getting the ball through the channels

The future 👌

Sought the others out like Sanchez

A young man who is now one of the 1st on the team sheet, plays international football and knows and wants to improve, i like that 👍

Evan Rutland we stan! I can’t wait to watch him grow and become even more amazing 😩

Off to Chelsea next season mark my words. Terry's his idol..defo goin back there can see a lampard saga on the horizon. And yes my fortunes are always hiding.

And your facial expressions when you're dancing Dec, you need to work on those 🙈

all the fans are behind you deccers!

West Ham fans have a great sense of humour. I love reading the comments 😂

Eleven thousand miles and all we've got to show for it is a new wooden spoon for the catering staff. Oh well, fourth isn't bad I suppose.

Wonderful to see westham are as terrible as ever 🤣🤣🤣

I know it's only pre-season, getting games under the belt, improving fitness blah blah blah.... But wow!! Our ability to keep possession and pass a ball more than 3 times in a row was shocking in the 1st half 😱 This was our issue all last season in the prem. Wilshere made us look so much better in the second half... Just hope he can keep injury free 🙏

So much cynicism from my irons faithful, its preseason, they haven't played competitive football for a bit, it is basically a training match, still a long way to go before season so we lost so what move on look to the next game, look to the signings and look forward stop turning on the players and the manager after two pre season games

I hope this isn’t an indication of what is to come in the new season!!

That was awful , think that Chinese writing on our shirts said we are pony 😆😆⚒⚒⚒

All of the people who write on here, including me have learnt a lot from the last two games. Let’s hope the management team are seeing what we’ve seen. Namely that there’s a lot of players at the club who are just making up the numbers and have no capability of producing anything in the Premier League.

😂😩😂 I genuinely put a tennor on Newcastle to get relegated a couple of days ago.

Disgrace. Shocking performance. Yes it’s a preseason friendly, but surely we could at least try. Newcastle are a laughing stock and yet still better than us. Don’t see the point of going all that way and not turning up. Please keep Ogbonna away from the first team

Whoa calm down now! Christ it's like an episode of Eastenders on this site! I've supported West Ham for 47 years, would I like us to have won? Yes, however we have played 3 games now in pre season one against a top 5 side in the world, 2 matches in oppressive heat, and all three matches without our new signings and having players coming back into the squad from serious injury. And to be fair it is a mini mouse cup like the inter two bob cup. We all want our team to win but I would sooner we lost all our pre season games and started the PL on the front foot, than win all our pre season games and then take 5 matches to do something in the league, look in the mirror every day and try to smile, it works honestly it does.

Looking forward to getting Fornals and Haller in the side, we really lacked any attacking creativity today

Yet another lose. Wow. So easy to beat our bunch of lazy overpaid "professionals". And again WH supporters gotta swallow this. Only looked better when Jack W, Snoddy and Noble came on. And also what is difficult to swallow is the non shallont faces of Pelligrini and his coaches, giving no oomph whatsoever. Really man. Really, is this the early signs of a top six team ???? Then how come Wolves and Newcastle already look far better. Much, much work to do esp with player attitude. Come on West Ham. We deserve much better !!!!

To be fair, fourth isn’t bad. I’d have taken that before the competition started ⚒

Let’s put it in perspective. None of the starting back 4 today will start the first game of the season and only Rice, Anderson, Lanzini and Fabianski likely to start. That’s 4 of 11 players.. it’s about getting the players fit for 3 weeks time and avoiding injuries. Not the end of the world.

I know it’s Only pre season but you expect to create a lot more slightly better 2nd half but same old problem pass pass pass but no end product there is still some deadwood at this club I’d flog of Cresswell and Ogbonna for sure alongside Sanchez Let’s no get upset as this is a Nothing game looking forward to seeing Diop and Balbuena back also looking to see Fornals and Haller in action

And what did we learn from that? .....it’s a long way to travel to collect a wooden spoon, better off staying at home playing The Daggers, ⚒⚒⚒🤦‍♀️. Even Pellegrini looked cheesed off

All about getting the lads fit. Yeah a wins nice but more important we don’t get injuries

Pellegrini has got to go not good enough. Time for a change. We have one of the best stadiums in the world so can attract the worlds best players.

I know it’s pre season but they look like they’ve forgotten the basics! By all means get fitness up but at least play football! Might as well have just done a fitness training session

I don’t get the negativity! The results don’t matter win, lose or draw. This tournament is for a few reasons only mainly - getting players match fit, getting the pecking order sorted for the first team and promoting the West Ham Utd brand to help raise more income for the club. Let’s stop moaning and get behind the team! COYI’s!!!! Can’t wait for the new season ⚽️⚽️⚽️ ⚽️ ⚒⚒⚒⚒

Terrible performance by the team today 😡 beaten by a very poor Newcastle side that from the start wanted the win more

Well at least we now know we need to get rid of Sanchez. Worst player I've seen in many, many years

what is up with people, yes it may only be pre season, but there were 8 or 9 players out there that have been playing to impress Pellegrini, training is for fitness, games are to show what players can do, and after these two games, there are 3 or 4 that look worthy of wearing the shirt.

I didn't realise we were sending our walking football team plus Wilshire who was the only one who deserves any credit
