Another point on the way for Irons ….apparently!

Another point is on the way tomorrow if we believe Mark Lawrenson.

He’s tipping the Hammers to grab a point from Newcastle following their fabulous victory over Chelsea in midweek.

We can only hope this wasn’t one of those special Hammers moments when they choose to beat all the odds before  slipping up in the next game.

However, with a few injuries with which to cope Newcastle could be ready for a beating – fingers firmly crossed as we go into those games which apparently are among the easier clashes we face before the end of the season.

Lawrenson seems to be taking a somewhat kinder attitude towards the Irons since we restarted after the campaign and hopes remain high that with the other relegation threatened clubs facing a tough series of fixtures we are now well placed to escape

Predicting the match on the BBc website the former Liverpool player says: “West Ham are finally up and running again too, and they will be full of confidence after their win over Chelsea – despite a big VAR decision going against them again.

Form-wise, Newcastle would still have to be favourites – but it doesn’t always work out that way in the Premier League.

Lawro’s prediction: 1-1

  1. Well, I would settle for 1-1. Respect the point as a certain person would say.
    As for VAR, why can’t they use it like in rugby?
    I.e. The referee should ask “Is there any reason I can’t award a goal/penalty?”
    The decisions should be made on the field and VAR should only be used when the ref isn’t sure about what he has seen.
