Fearless Moysie ready for points from big boys

David Moyes will be keeping one thing in his mind should the Hammers fail to grab the points against Stoke – how well they have performed against top opposition this season.

The manager is expecting a top performance on Monday evening against a team we have already beaten comfortably on their own manor.

But with ‘doubles’ always tough to achieve in PL football he understands the task in front of the team should they fail to grab a victory and vitrually end all fears of relegation.

We are currently 22/1 with various High Street bookies to go down and  they are comforting odds as we enter the finishing straight.

And positive Moysie is remaining upbeat about all possible outcomes on Monday saying: “I look back at our games against Chelsea, Arsenal, certainly Man City, and we played some of our best stuff and got points.

“If we don’t win against Stoke then I’ll go into the game with that mindset. The points have helped us recently, and I know if we can beat Stoke it’ll give us a good chance of finishing in a good position.”

Hammers remaining games:

Stoke (h)

Arsenal (a)

Man City (h)

Leicester City (a)

Manchester United (h)

Everton (h)

  1. Chelsea got lucky , luckily for us . A free kick from a few yards either way needs to be defended . If you don’t defend it you can’t blame the ref . A maybe red card isn’t going to change your season . It’s a 38 game program,,, not a 2 or 3 game program .
    Anyway never the less ,we must get something from the Stoke game . Some results have been going our way but , we need to earn our own points to take advantage .

  2. Fearless? Why are you talking up this negative dinosaur of a manager.
    You would of thought we were in Man City’s position not still fighting against relegation.
    Countless games already of Moyes dullness.

  3. This time of the season anybody can beat anybody, Stoke can certainly beat us if we are too cocky, look at last season against Watford as a prime example, we were playing like Brazil for 25 minutes, rabona passes for goals etc, I hope the players don’t go out there expecting Marko to trounce them on his own, Stoke are like a cat with its back against the wall, if they lose there is every chance they will be relegated, we should start on the front foot and try to kill them off yes but be prepared to change gears and absorb pressure if we have too a draw is not a bad result for us the way results went today, if we get above Huddersfield even on goal difference that could be decisive at the end of the season.
