There’s been much discussion over recent weeks about West Ham’s ability to beat the “big teams” whilst struggling against the smaller outfits.
One question: Which smaller outfits are they exactly?
The first big disappointment was our inability to beat Leicester City at home and conceding all three points. Since then the Foxes have gone on to win nine, draw five and lose one to go two points clear at the top.
Then came the Bournemouth result – disappointing but The Cherries yesterday managed to secure a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
Norwich and Sunderland were annoying but the defeat at Watford has been put into more perspective by the rise of that team to ninth with 22 points to their name.
West Brom had beaten Arsenal before they met us and yesterday drew at home to Spurs 1-1 and of course we all know how difficult Pulis teams can be.
Everybody is beating everybody else. It’s that kind of season.
Under a new manager who is introducing a different brand of football we are doing incredibly well and as his ways bed in among the players it’s gonna get a whole lot better.
I’m sure Slav has already identified his summer targets and I take no convincing that they will be of superior quality to what we became tediously accustomed to over the previous four years.
In the meantime let’s enjoy this crazy roller coaster season! It truly is very West Ham!
