This week it’s West Ham’s turn! The team from Newham in the Eastern parts of London plays their home matches at Boleyn Ground in Upton Park. West Ham United is also known as the Hammers and the Irons. Robert Green, their keeper, has been an important player at West Ham for the last three years and this man is also very good at saving penalty kicks.
Last season, West Ham came 9th on the table. For the 2009/2010 season, the Hammers haven’t been off to a very good start and are now in 17th place. This season, West Ham has bought these new players: Jimenez, Kurucz, Ilunga, Faubert and Davenport. Do you think the team’s new members will get the team higher up the table?
Gianfranco Zola is their manager and he came to the club September last year. Zola was a legendary football player at Chelsea between 1996 and 2003. In 2003, Zola was voted as the best Chelsea player ever, by Chelsea fans.
West Ham is playing Burnley tomorrow at Boleyn Ground in Upton Park. Who do you think will score the first goal?
