Foxes huge form upsurge threatens Irons

Qata selected Maddison available for Hammers clash

Let’s make no mistake about it, Leicester City represents as tough a game as we will have faced this season when the east midlands outfit come visiting tomorrow afternoon.

The final game of the PL season so far ahead of Qatastrophe is also as important as any we will have faced after the huge upsurge in the Foxes form.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has seen his squad won their last six games over all competitions after a woeful start to the season and they represent a real threat to hopes of a Hammers revival after Palace and Blackburn.

On top of that we face the midfield threat of James Maddison who has been called up for the Qata thing and his confrontation with Declan will be a big feature.

The Foxes also look certain to include the superb Youri Tielemans who has been a real threat along with the exciting Harvey Barnes down the left who will be a problem for whoever goes in at right back – hopefully Vladi Coufal.

We look to be in a position where we will need to be at our best – or even better – and the team selection will again be key although I fear it will be defensive.

Here’s the CandH team and result forecast: Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Rice, Lanzini; Benrahma, Fornals, Bowen, Scamacca,

Match forecast 1-1

  1. Finding the “Qatastrophe” wording bit a bit boring and childish now. I get that you wont be watching the WC and I understand why, largely I agree but some of us will be watching to cheer on England and players from WHU.

    • If you are bored and consider it childish, fine – we don’t believe a country in which there are beheaings, torture, women treated as third class, people building stadia while on slave labour and dying and where LGBT rights are ignored and mocked is anything less than a catastrophe . You may have missed that we have made it clear we will report on WHUFC players but that’s it

  2. No I agree with you 100% that it shouldnt be held there for all the reasons you have said. But where is your condemnation of Declan Rice? Or Alphonse Areola? Or Lucas Paqueta? Or any other player for West Ham who might be going?

  3. Hi Hugh, I may be a little out of touch with the lingo over in the UK since I’ve been Down Under for many years now. But can you please tell me what “abd ryje team selection” is?

    Oh, and I’m afraid to say that I agree with PB61 above, regarding this “Qatastrophe” thing.

    And apparently it’s now referred to as LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual and other sexually or gender diverse people). Maybe the Qataries can’t keep up with it all either. I certainly find it confusing but I am a Boomer so I have an excuse!
