Hammers get a Foxes warning

Nigel-Pearson-is-to-leave-005Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has warned West Ham the Foxes “must make their move now”  if they are to esacape relegation from the Premier League.

The Irons arrive at the King Power Stadium tomorrow as City start bid to breach a seven-point gap within nine games.

Pearson said: “We have got to win games. Drawing games is not good enough now. It will be really important for us to remain positive.”

Victory could see the hosts move off the bottom of the Premier League for the first time since November and Pearson said: “I think it would be a big lift.

But we need to keep our focus on what we are doing and not get involved in the tug of war that people like to ramp up at this stage of the season.

“We are coming up against a West Ham side that is very underrated. Sam (Allardyce) has done a very good job there, I know him well, and I’ve worked with him.”

“It is always striking the balance between being positive in a game, and not setting yourself up to be caught out.

“We can talk about staying in touch, but we have got to make a move. We have got to keep our focus on the fact we cannot affect other results.

“It remains a huge challenge for us, but it is one that I know the players are looking forward t

“Is the pressure off us? Maybe a little bit. I think the teams we are up against have a healthy respect for us. I don’t think other teams expect an easy game just because of our league position. There is plenty of fight left in us.”

  1. Fighting talk wont worry Allardyce,hes a coward anyway.

  2. Come on you irons!!!
    Big Sams claret and blue army!!

  3. Really hope we lose, might shut up the BFS lovers and if we play like against Sunderland poor Sakho alone up front Downing on the wing its not far from truth. I wonder what happened with the diamond sophisticated one’s tactic of great downing on the tip where he’s the best. SAM RETIRE ALREADY!

    • really poor form Paul. I have supported WHU for nearly 60 years and have never wanted us to lose for any reason. You may want BS out and I respect your view, just as much as some who want him to stay. We have had bad managers before and we have played with crap players and teams before, we have been relegated many times before, we have played bad football before – but do we really want to ever see our team lose? Come On!

    • you want us to loose,****ER

    • Agree with Tony. You may not like the manager like many others, but to wish the team you have no doubt supported for many years to lose?

      Little story, I took my youngest to his first game against Sunderland, and yeah it was poor, but to see the joy on his face when signing bubbles, when we scored and won. That’s what I meant on the other thread, you don’t have like the manager, but get behind the team and support the players.

  4. yeah all true mates my comment was bit out of anger so i apologize. Every game sets my mood for the week never been to a game due to living abroad in US but i hope i can someday with even more joy then on a telly. COYI
