Burnley opportunity must be taken

West Ham head for Burnley with Manuel Pellegrini readily admitting we are in – to use one of his favourite words ” a bad moment and desperate to end a terrible run of form.

But we’ve been here before many times and this really is the moment to start believing.

Last season’s start was worse and yes we expected better but let’s put the hobnail boots away and get behind the lads and manager AGAIN as we always do!

The reality is that when you enter November without a win since September and earning only two points from five games there’s more than a problem.

But even the most desperate pessimist would surely admit that somewhere down the line this will come to an end and there can be no better place than Turf  Moor – where the Clarets are a  team on a pretty desperate run themselves. This is an opportunity

Pellegrini – questioned about the situation – could hardly be anything less than entirely honest and said: was asked about the team’s form saying: “It’s a very bad moment without any doubt.”

“I always try to be optimistic, put my target as high as I can. West Ham must fight to be in the upper part of the table.”

“The Premier League is very tight this season. You have three points between eight or nine teams. But of course we need to improve and we want to be in another position.”

With Fabianski being out for at least another month, sat on the sidelines, we have to continue on with Roberto who who has come in for much stick.

Jack Wilshere again may sit this one out and will be assessed during training and of course Michail Antonio won’t be back until after the international break.

  1. It’s a “bad moment” when, despite Pellegrini saying he has the squad he wants, we are continually bemoaning the loss of 2 players!
    Hardly the “big team” he keeps preaching about and I’m sure not the “project “ he envisaged.
    I sincerely hope that everyone turns up to Turf Moor and puts in a proper shift.

    • And don’t forget Pellegrini was often picking Yarmalenko in preference to Antonio. What happens if Heller or Diop get injured. The much heralded best squad ever looks wafer thin and decidedly short on quality. Don’t see many worse teams in the PL. At least others put in a shift most weeks.

  2. I’m a lifelong fan I know for sure this is a really tough game . We need to be on it from start to finish with the right desire and mentality. However that alone will not get us a win we need to match their energy & let them know their in a game. We need to play as a united team , including Pelle and believe in yourselves. All I want is that desire and team spirit back with the manager & players together let’s face it Pelle is a good manager . Come on lads you can win with team spirit and hard work & Burnley will definitely be about hard work. COYI ⚒⚒⚒
