Hammers need four wins to qualify for Europe starting with Wolves

Hammers need four wins and it all starts NOW!

Tomorrow marks a significant day for West Ham and David Moyes’ pursuit of European qualification. Wolves recently played out a lacklustre 1-1 draw against Burnley, whilst West Ham secured a similar score-line against Tottenham on Tuesday.

Hammers need four wins and it all starts NOW!

Hammers need four wins to qualify for Europe next season starting with Wolverhampton Wanders

However, the single point earned against Spurs will only prove beneficial if Moyes’ men can follow it up with a victory against Gary O’Neil’s Wolves side. Though it’s not an exact science, accumulating 55 points could potentially secure Europa Conference League football this season, but aiming for four wins would be even better.

Much hinges on the performance of Premier League teams in European competitions, but finishing in 8th place in the EPL might still suffice for continental qualification. The Hammers must start winning now because out of our remaining seven games, the fixtures against Luton, Palace, Fulham, and Wolves seem the most winnable.

This means we need to secure a win tomorrow—no excuses, just three points.

    I think the loss to Newcastle has already cost us a European place. Newcastle Brighton Chelsea and Wolves all have at least a game in hand. All of them will leapfrog us if the win it. That puts us in 11th place.

    Total agree Mark,Chelsea have two games I hand and we have still to go there. Areal 6 pointer if we manage to get wins before hand.

    Agree there is a very real threat from both Newcastle and Chelsea who can both score goals and have games in hand, whilst we play in Europe. By the time we play Chelsea our team will be cream crackers without rotation. We will be weakening when we need to get stronger

    This is what Moyes is quoted as saying on the West Ham website before the Wolves game:

    “We’ve been in the top eight or nine for most of the season, and we’re going to do our best in every game to try and retain that”.

    This is the whole problem with Moyes. Total lack of ambition. It’s all about keeping things as they are and not trying to improve. It’s the same in microcosm in each game. I’d be really interested in how many points have been lost through trying to shut up shop at around 60 minutes and failing.
