  1. Some low expectations 8-10 wow,
    Personally I went for 5th which did not show at all,
    Wonder who thinks we will be relegated is Lawersucks allowed to vote ?
    Wonder how they will feel in 3 weeks time when we get results against Chelski,City and Bournemouth ?

  2. i went for 8-10, based on that other teams will come back stronger and im hoping that we go further in Europe which i would imagine would have an affect on the league place.
    If every club finished in what would be deemed its rightful position in size i would have us in 8th.
    Also Historically its very rare for west ham to have two strong seasons in a row, and we have only ever finshed top 10 in three seasons running just once in our entire history.
    ill book 4 points from those first 3 games.

  3. Sorry General I went 8th.If we have a good Europa League run I think it will take its toll in the league.But just for you I will say we will finish 6th if we go out of the EL in the next round 🙂

  4. I went 6th I think it will be another season of mixed results all round and I am basing that on getting a better crack of the whip from ref’s and also performing better against the so called lesser teams. I don’t have a clue though to be honest and am voting with my heart over my head 😉

  5. I would take 6th Rad but now we have Ayew and Calleri on board and Slav does not stick itch his experiment of Antonio at RB I still think we can reach top 4,
    It’s all going to come down to finding the 11 that works best for most games,
    Leicester hardly changed their best side last term and most teams that win the league don’t keep changing their best side plenty of cup games and Europe to give others a run,

  6. As long as we are above the spuds & gooners.

  7. I think our squad is stronger than people think…
    I’m being optimistic and hoping for top 4…
    Perhaps if we don’t get injuries, referee decisions don’t screw us over so often..
    And we turn our draws into wins. Even with Europa league… I reckon top 4, if we play to our full potential. If not.. If all fails.. And none of those things go in our favour. Then finishing 6th 7th would be an another amazing season.
