Hammers are PL goners says pundit

Controversial former Leicester City midfielder Robbie Savage- turned – like so many  ex pros to punditry – reckons the Hammers are Premier League goners!

He was particularly scathing about the team in the recent defeat at Leicester and little has changed since then in his world and his verdict will come as no surprise as a result.

He’s definitely not impressed with what he has seen so far and giving his view on Twitter he’s tipping us to finish in the 18th place we now occupy.

He said: “In 18th will be West Ham on 34 points,they’ve still got to play six of the top 10.”

No doubt that will go down like a lead balloon with his former Birmingham City employers Gold and Sullivan with whom he went to war when trying to get a move to his mate Mark Hughes’ Blackburn Rovers amid much publicised uproar.

He finally got his wish but not before his boss Steve Bruce had made sure he had turned out in front of a seriously angry bunch of Blues fans in a reserve team match at St Andrews.

  1. We’ll finish 14th or 15th

  2. The cynic in me thinks these type of comments are aimed at encouraging punters /supporters to generate bets.You only have to look at which sports channel most of these pundits are employed by .

    • TOO cynical. If true we would offer odds. We dont Peter. MOT A BETTING SITE

    • Who cares what Savage thinks ?? Man has the Brain of a Rocking Horse.
      We all know relegation is staring us in the face – up to the team to start performing and get some points on the board.
      Hopefully, we can survive and Moyes can have a clear out and get some of his own players in.

  3. We have a tough run in, we are playing top 6 or bottom 6 teams which means the players have to pick up their game. Hopefully they will recharge the batteries while they are on break and come back with that spark they need to fight for the points we need.

  4. Whether or not we avoid relegation is now down to the players and the manager and his team. It will still be a roller coaster but fortunately Robbie Savage will not be able to have any impact


  5. All this doom & gloom, has anyone looked at the remaining fixtures of the teams around us, as no one even mentions the really tough matches they have to play too and believe me they are tougher than ours.
    Not enough room to list them all I think so just go and have a look, Norwich are doomed in my opinion but as for the rest , well, I don’t think they relish their matches to come.

  6. There is a facility on world football.net to create league position by predicting results.
    Give it a try using sensible guesstimate score lines and you may be pleasantly surprised by what you see.
    I have us finishing 17th, 4 points clear of Bournemouth in the last relegation spot.

  7. Pundits eh? Don’t you just love them….At the start of the season it is all ‘well I can’t see beyond Man C & Liverpool to win it’. Then they usually go on to predict the new promoted sides will go back down. Did any predict Sheffield challenging for Europe? After our freaky first 6 games several were saying it was the strongest Hammers side ever & Haller was a bargain. Some of the same people were by November predicting relegation. Overpaid to spout a load of rubbish.
