Hammers back in bottom three

By Hughie Southon

The Irons slipped back into the relegation zone today as Leicester drew 1-1 at Brentford and Leeds won 2-4 at Wolves.

And even Saints managed to score three against fourth placed Spurs with the bottom of the table managing a 3-3 draw.

The Hammers were forced to watch on given their game against Manchester City who meet Burnley later in an FA Cup clash.

That leaves us with a very tough game in hand but there’s a way to go and we keep fingers crossed for our lads who have a really serious job to do over the last games of the season.

Bournemouth – who had beaten a highly unpredictable Liverpool last weekend – were beaten 3-0 at Villa with whom we shared the points at the London Stadium.

But a top fantastically fighting Saints who came from behind three times against the north Londoners – the final equaliser coming in the 93rd minute via a penalty from James Ward-Prowse.

  1. Villa, Wolves, Leeds, Everton have all changed managers and they are all improving. Palace about to go down the same route. None of these will be relegated. Yet our clueless owners whose idea that Moyes will save us, when he is actually the problem is just mind boggling. We are now in the bottom 3 and all this will do is to make Moyes to go more defensive. I just dread to think the atmosphere if we lose to Southampton which there is a good chance with this clowning charge. If that happens and we are bottom of the PL then the board have to make a decision that had to be made months ago..

  2. Yes we are and it looks like we are sticking with Mr Moyes. Statistically and objectively we are very likely to end up bottom three and relegated. Our current set up does not win games. Ironically, the freedom employed in Europe has success, but is put straight back in the cupboard for the league. In contrast to our risk averse subs, today Everton brought on a young player and he won them a point. We have six wins this season. We must assume we need five more. We play five teams around us, three of those away in Bournemouth, Palace and Leicester. Must win at home are Leeds and Southampton. Meanwhile we have to face Newcastle, Arsenal, Liverpool, Man U and Man C. If we continue with two DCM and one up top, walking football with no pattern, subbing like for like swaps after 70 mins, then more swaps last 5 mins, no bravery, hand brake on football, we go down and we deserve it. We are playing like a blank page in a league full of literature. I am so truly disappointed and sad.
