Fixture nightmare looms

A fixture nightmare is looming large for the Hammers.

We are heading into December well aware of just how crazy the calendar looks over the next month.

Of course, the festive period is always absolutely bonkers when it comes to cramming the games in, and this year is no different.

The Irons go into it with a small squad already, and with the first big injury ( let’s pray there are no more) starting to have an effect; Angelo Ogbonna could be out for the rest of the season.

So we really have to consider just how much rotation is going to be needed by David Moyes.

The run kicks off this Sunday, with the clash with Manchester City in the Premier League.

The subsequent games and their dates are as follows: Brighton at home, Wednesday December 1st. Chelsea at home, Saturday December 4th. Dinamo Zagreb at home, Thursday December 9th. Burnley away, Sunday December 12th. Arsenal away, Wednesday December 15th. Norwich home, Saturday December 18th. Spurs away, Wednesday December 22nd. Southampton home, Sunday December 26th. Watford away, Tuesday December 28th.

That’s nine games in a month, and there’s barely any rest between the games, either.

Moyes faces a major headache when it comes to managing his squad and ensuring we don’t pick up too many injuries. Staying competitive throughout the Christmas period in three competitions – the Spurs game is the Carabao Cup quarter final – would be something approaching a masterstroke.
