No West Ham Bob post today, the chap has gone underground (or to the Caribbean!).
I have never been to the London Olympic stadium, I understand it is a soulless bowl unless inhabited by the Great Gooner, Mo Farah. Our record at the ground is good, with only one loss, a draw and a few wins. WHU have only won one out of the last 21 fixtures with AFC. This may explain why they keep buying our ex-players – Little Jack, $amir Nasri, Flapianski etc
Do you recall the days when if Wrighty didn’t score we were screwed? It is much the same at WHU. Take out that unpleasant devil, Arnautovic and they are toothless. That said, on the rare occasion Andy Carroll plays they can lump the ball into the Big Man and WHU have another attacking weapon.
I like the look of Anderson, who could do well at a better club, one which isn’t being ruined by rapacious owners. He is a more direct Iwobi.
The Hammers manager, Manuel Pellegrini, is doing a good job after the club was damaged by the tactics of Fat Sam and Moyes. He seems a likeable chap and at least is trying to get WH back to playing decent football.
Back to Arnautovic. I can never forgive the swine for his cowardly attack on Debuchy which effectively ended his Arsenal career (allowing Catwalk to take his place). West Ham understandably are refusing to sell him. The bloke is highly likely to score this afternoon against our porous defence.
Awful Music Alert. Turn off Sound
Of which … Could Hector start this afternoon? Please, pretty please.
And Mesut. No more of this knee knack, back pain, headache, flu, dog’s eaten my homework bolleaux. Let him play, and let him dazzle.
And Catwalk. Stop him looking like a bright red blimp up int the stands and get him up that wing in order to give the team some balance.
Getting the injured back into the team will make a huge difference.
I expect this afternoon to be frustrating, we are not playing particularly well, even when winning, and the Hammers are very inconsistent. And we know Fabianski will have one his best performances.
We need 3 points.
Let it be So.
