Hammers high to go on and on!


West Ham face five games over the next 15 days as the quickfire timetable of their Premier League and Cup matches really kicks in.

Manchester City arrive on Saturday afternoon and I honestly believe that we can beat them with the form we are in for the first time in what will be 16 games.

Yes, it gets no tougher but if we are to bet them it is now given the form we have been in since the start of the season.

That is followed on the 21st by our first Europa League clash against TSC and we have to believe that’s another one we will com out on top in.

Liverpool next at AnfieldĀ  on the 24th and we have shown ourselves more than capable up there in recent seasons and this time – assuming no injuries – I can see a draw on the Merseyside horizon.

Once upon a time a trip to Lincoln City in the League Cup would have a banana skin appearance but not this time around and the final Premier League game of September against Sheffield United is hopefully gonna see us end the month still unbeaten

    Love your optimism, Hugh! I wish I could share it 100% but I can’t help feeling our bubbles may be about to burst. However, it’s still Come On You Irons!
