Hammers drop out of top six

West Ham have dropped out of the top six of the Premier League table after Spurs 2-2 draw with Newcastle this afternoon.

The Magpies rescued a vital point five minutes before the end meaning go fifth on goal difference only.

Liverpool drop down to sixth after their three-nil win over Arsenal also put them on 49 points.

Spurs have a positive goal difference of nineteen, four more than Liverpool on fifteen

The Hammers are now seventh on 49 points on a positive goal difference of ten five behind Liverpool but a game in hand over both Spurs and Liverpool.

Everton remains eight on 46 points but have two games in hand on Spurs and Liverpool and one on the Hammers.

West Ham only needs a point against Wolves to regain a top-six place and leapfrog them back to fifth place but a win would put them fourth above Chelsea and in a Champions League spot.

  1. And moyes says we would consider offers for Rice and soucek ! Gets better doesnt it .

    • Got to look at all offers unfortunately! But as much as i feel rice and soucek are so solid and we would suffer immensely, if either were to go. But your talking 100 mil + for both! And the way moyes spends his funds is nothing short of class so far! That sort of money with moyes is potentially 5 or 6 players. As for top 6 its in our hands! other results help we do our bit pick up points and maybe our dreams wont fade and die.

    • I’m afraid it’s the message it sends out. We can be persuaded to sell our best players. If that is true please tell me what is the point. We have it all going for us and a statement like that. Were I R ice or Soucek I would think ok. When where and how soon.Get me out of here. Not a lot of point being here.Ambition zilch. Accept we are West Ham and with that attitude always will be second best. Appalling.

  2. This is our true position this season imho if we finish there I would take that but let’s aim as high as possible. We win on Monday and are back in the top 4, we definitely need results to continue to go our way but Leicester, Chelsea, Liverpool, Utd all look average so let’s maximise whatever we can from this unusual season COYI!!!

    • Hugh could you please let me know how what Moyes said re offers for Rice and Soucek ties up with your not for sale comments you have been told. Beats me.

  3. Hi mojen
    Where dose it say we would sell rice or soucek ?

  6. Funny my comments seem to have gone missing. Cant think why .

  7. Now they’re back.

  8. If someone makes an offer money you have to consider it before either turning it down or accepting it. There is no other way. What Moyes has said is that if an offer came in for rice it would have to be all the money in the Bank of England plus all the money in the bank of Scotland and with Souchek they would also have to add the bank of the Czech Republic. On another occasion when our owners said rice was worth 100 million moyes said he was not for sale but if he was it would cost far more than 100 million.
