Hammers get PL survival backing

West Ham have been backed to remain in the Premier League by Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy.

The former Fulham player is one of the less hysterical commentators on the game and he seems convinced David Moyes will keep the Hammers in the big league.

Despite the 3-1 reverse at Brighton, Murphy believes that once the team has it’s best players back they will be fine.

Commenting on the defeat he said: “They are missing for me their two best players in Lanzini and Arnautovic, which is a big blow. They also have a couple of other injury problems.

“But when he went in they were in the bottom three, they are now out of that and shown that they can dig out results under David Moyes and he deserves credit for that and I still think they will be alright.”

  1. Halt…. no need to worry… nothing to see here… Danny Murphy says we’ll be
    Ok. Thank God for that, I thought our lack of spending in the transfer window had condemned us to Championship league mediocrity

  2. Danny Murphy is spot on imo .

  3. Spoken like a true pundit lol !! If and when and maybe go hand in hand when its all speculation and personal opinions? Its a lottery and were not getting enough points on the board because we ain’t good enough at present to compete ! Do we have time with injury’s coming back or could we be in big trouble before all our hopes are pinned on two players ?
    It ain’t over until waynetta sings lofl !!! 2 points from the next 3 games sees us in shyte street!! 😎

  4. We’re a mid level PL team, and we lose more than we win, once you understand that your blood pressure immediately lowers.

    • That’s been our situation for as long as I can remember , crewehammer . Sometimes even worse . But sense in harping on , best to just accept it , as you say it keeps the blood pressure down . But you can’t help but think what might happen if some big money was invested in the club . There are times when the team perform great only to follow it up with rubbish . Even a full squad of first team players . Some mentality issue I guess . Even our best Legendary Managers couldn’t shake us out of the habit .

      • Good point keV …personally I wouldn’t mind a foreigner throwing loafs of Mooney at us who cares were there from …or should we be happy that we are getting mugged of because our owners come to games to watch and that they are English ..I know what I would Rather ££££££

      • I always thought the Icelandic’s were our best chance of success, they certainly had many times the £££’s of even some of today’s owners, it’s was just our luck that the financial melt down happened when it did.

  5. And when you take omega 3 you’re IQ developes in conversation and views that are worthy of reply ! But the petty remarks and nobby digs which accompany most boardettes are there in all you’re posts ! Try some 03 instead of HARIBOS and post something we can comment on instead of youre normal bullshyte!

    • Spot on Lazarus: 2pts from 3 games = in the ****e. Bunching in the mid-table with a few points separating relegation zone from 11th position. The PL is so obviously ‘us and them’. Top 6 are tasty, and the rest are mediocre at best. Our mediocrity as a team on the park is down to a worse than mediocre transfer strategy and player recruitment policy (lack of), and a lack of serious intent to grow the club by our owners. Hence we get saddłed with second-rate managers, coaches and players. When social media platforms suggest we could pick up Alex Song you get the scale of the dis-ease in the club.

      Still love the Irons even if the club’s leadership is despicable. And ironically that’s part of the problem. That’s why these owners are getting away with this scam….too many fans who love the team and feed those record profits. Screwed if we do, stuffed if we don’t.

    • Three sentences and 5 errors – I suspect you’re taking 03 (ozone, a poison) instead of your omega 3. Notice how I use “you’re” and “your” correctly? You got it wrong THREE times! Shameful really, especially when you consider Hamburg Hammer speaks English as a second language and has impeccable (if you don’t know what this means, look it up) spelling and grammar.

  6. It’s just been one disaster after anoither for the last few seasons ..will it ever change …IMO. No not with these clowns in control …simple as that
