Hammers getting free of fear factor

There’s little doubt Jarrod Bowen’s arrival has provided a much needed spark for the Hammers.

With Wolves, Spurs and Chelsea the next three games facing us I’m feeling a lot more confident and that has much to do with the Bowen factor.

This is a guy with quick feet and a spot on attitude which I want to think is rubbing off on the lads.

Wolves and Spurs are tough tests but the midlanders – despite having not lost in the Premier League in London – have matches against Olympiacos ether side of their game with us whilst Spurs have taken just two points from a possible last 12 and frankly are a bit of a mess.

David Moyes – with the likes of Bowen and Antonio leading the way –  is seeing some good performances from the team and there is far less reason to fear now than a few weeks ago thank God.

Bowen had this to say about the situation: “Losing to Arsenal was  so frustrating as we had many clear-cut chances,” said the January signing.

“The display and the work ethic were there, though we need to be more ruthless in front of goal. It’s so tight in the bottom half — but we can’t worry about what other teams are doing.

“We know the quality we have, so we need to keep performing like we have done in recent weeks.

“But we also must take our chances to drag ourselves away from where we are at the minute.”

If Antonio and Haller – so dangerous on their day – can recapture the Southampton goal scoring form we are gonna be a tough side to beat.

  1. Being a supporter since the early 1950s I’ve seen some good and bad times.
    My whole family are supporters some being season ticket holders and we are are fully behind the Manager,his staff and of course the team,hopefully we can help get the club
    out of this precarious position that we find ourselves in by giving our full support.
    There have been better performances over the past few games so,keep playing as you have,please give your all so,”come on you Irons”!

  2. Yep Agreed the performances of late have been a vast improvement but the lack of points from these games equals the real.fear factor..we desperately need to beat Wolves and that is going to be tough IMO..hope I wrong!!COYI

  3. The vastly improved performances shows that David Moyes has done again what he did last time he came and saved us from relegation, if the team keeps playing with this intensity (and puts away their chances) we should be fine. And don’t let him go when he keeps us up!
    With the quality we have in the side we should be nowhere near where we currently sit in the table, but in the Premiership names count for nothing and reputation doesn’t win you games.
    Oddly though as the table stands today, there is not one team from 10th place down I will be glad to see go down. As for those above 10th place… Well…

  4. The improvement is there for all to see , unfortunately it’s a game where you need to score more goals than the opposition to win . But we are creating chances and all it takes is a few of those chances to cross the goal line . It does feel though that we are coming good just at the right time ;; Hope I’m right , before it’s too late .

  5. Neil down under…totally agree it’s down to Moyes and he has “inherited “a far better squad than before IMO .should we avoid the drop to the dreaded let Mr Moyes stamp his own agenda and transfer in and outs which IMO he should have been allowed to do the last time..just hope “lightning does strick TWICE..
