Welcome to our Christmas issue. This is always my favourite time of year with so many games played over the festive period.
The Christmas period can make or break a season and I sincerely hope we are able to kick on from our impressive first half of the season and get to the end of January still in the hunt for an European place.
Our thanks to Bianca Westwood for her brilliant interview with Carl Jenkinson. It’s another fantastic read. Our thanks to Carl too for speaking so honestly about his time at West Ham so far.
We’ve also got two brilliant interviews with Tony Cottee and Matt Dickinson. The former talks to Julian Shea about his striking partnership with Frank McAvennie, while the latter tells Simon Osborn about his ‘warts and all’ biography on Bobby Moore.
I also loved Emily Pulham’s piece on Keira Knightley’s recent interview on the Late Night show Seth Meyers and how it might help to attract more West Ham fans from across the Pond. I hope you enjoy reading what I feel is another cracker. As always, if you want to comment on any of the pieces, send us your views to firstname.lastname@example.org .
