Hammers get Euro helping hand

Who would have believed at the start of this amazing season that had we been told at this stage of the campaign we would be above Liverpool with a couple of games in hand?

Jurgen Klopp’s outfit lost their sixth game on the trot at Anfield against relegation-threatened Fulham to leave the Irons in sixth place.

It was a fabulous result for Scott Parker’s outfit who whilst still third off bottom sees his team on equal points with Brighton who have a marginally better goal difference.

It would hardly¬† have been the number one priority on the former Hammers favourite’s agenda but he won’t have been displeased at giving the club a helping hand in their bid for European qualification

The Hammers will have been hugely encouraged by the result which gives them a real chance of consolidating their place in the top six as they head into the game against Leeds United at the London Stadium tomorrow evening.

  1. Now we need to do our bit and start winning, 6 or better out of the next 9 points available would be good, can’t believe the distinctly average Utd managed a result against City anyone with a suspicious mind might suspect foul play to keep at least two of the establishment in their positions…

  2. Following our win against Leeds, won’t it be lovely to look down the monkey tree of the Premier League and see all of those smiling faces looking up at us? So very different from the view looking up from our usual position near the bottom.
    PS Watch out Man City – The Irons are coming!!
