Hammers fans should stay close to whufc.com over the coming days for all best news and views around the club's 12 summer signings.
A dozen new names have arrived to bolster the 2011/12 npower Championship challenge, along with the important retention of homegrown Hammers trio Mark Noble, Jack Collison and James Tomkins, and established internationals Robert Green and Carlton Cole.
The new-look Hammers squad will next be in action for the Kids for a Quid home match against Portsmouth on Saturday week. Along with Kevin Nolan, Matt Taylor and Co, there could be a number of debutants with Guy Demel, Henri Lansbury, David Bentley, Sam Baldock and Papa Bouba Diop all hoping to make their Boleyn bows.
It is the start of what could be a pivotal month for the club. Millwall away follows on 17 September before the month concludes with back to back home games against Peterborough United and Ipswich Town. whufc.com will also continue to keep tabs on the Academy aces out on loan with Ahmed Abdulla, Jordan Brown, Olly Lee, Jordan Spence and Cristian Montano all eager to impress.
The official website will confirm the new squad numbers later on Thursday, while West Ham TV will be on hand to capture the first interviews. As well as the new signings, the club's cameras already have plenty of special features coming up to keep you going - even without a first-team game taking place this weekend.
Coming up on West Ham TV are the latest U18 highlights plus a special Elliot Lee interview and package featuring his first two hat-tricks this season. Then there is Carlton Cole on his bid to keep on scoring, the best of the development squad action including Papa Bouba Diop and a Martin Allen catch-up with his thoughts on Sam Baldock and Cristian Montano. That's not all though, as there is also a David Gold sit-down and, of course, every single first team match from pre-season and the campaign so far to savour.
The live action - with full audio commentary on West Ham TV of course - returns with the visit of Portsmouth on 10 September, the first 3pm home kick-off of the season. Make sure you are there to see how Sam Allardyce copes with the welcome headache of a selection dilemma, with the Hammers having gone to Nottingham Forest and won 4-1 in their last outing.
