Background / History

Known for years as `The Academy' after the club's ability to educate youngsters in the ways of the game, the Hammers have in the past couple of seasons augmented the home grown approach with a big infusion of expensive talent. The resulting mixture has often been explosive with striker Paulo Di Canio the main foreign hero and home grown stars Joe Cole, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard all tipped for future international stardom.
