Hammers slip dangerously close to relegation zone

Results have not gone West Ham’s way this afternoon. A defeat for Stoke against Liverpool would have relegated them but they pulled off a miraculous point at Anfield against all the odds and can still overtake West Ham by winning their last two games against Palace and Swansea.

Both West Brom and Southampton both won earning 3 valuable points which in the case of the Saints puts them one point from safety and 3 points from West Ham.  Crystal Palace guaranteed their Premier League status by beating Leicester City 5-0 today as they jump into 11th spot.

The only good news for West Ham was defeats by Huddersfield and Swansea this afternoon. The Hammers sit in 15th place just three points from the relegation zone with a worst goal difference than Southampton.  The Saints have three more games with Everton, Swansea and Man City yet to play.   Huddersfield face Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal.   Swansea faces Bournemouth, Southampton and Stoke.

Whatever happens, West Ham are not safe yet and the relegation drama still has a few twists and turns.

  1. We should not be relying on other teams around us doing us any favours.4 matches left 3 at home and about time we put one over on Leicester too next week.Not worried at all for a change.West Brom and Stoke just about gone Hard to see Huddersfield picking up another point.The team that will have the biggest say is Swansea as they play Southampton and Stoke at home.Low points total needed to stay up this season the way things are panning out.Have some faith and belief and lets say goodbye on a high to a quite dreadful season.

  2. Pretty sure we’re safe already.

    If Moyes wants to stay he needs to try something different to interest the fans. If he can keep Carroll fit and motivate him as he has done with Arnie, we will score goals (which always helps).

    The summer window must include excitement, NOT mundane “security for next year.”

  3. ‘Hammers slip dangerously close to relegation zone’. Oh dear, panic!!! So I look at the table- where have we slipped to? Fifteenth!!! Hang on…weren’t we there this morning. Read on to see how bad it is. Yes CP -always going to finish above us- have won. Hammering Leicester- who we play next week. Southampton – ditto for CP (imo). Brighton draw again. WBA win & could catch us- if they win both games, we lose all our games AND they close a difference in GD of 12. On the other hand two sides below us lose, nearly as many who won.

    Come on Sean. It is bad enough supporting this ruddy club as it is without actually trying to make it worse 😡😡😡😡

    Nothing much has changed & most sides have played more games than us. I know we are likely to lose to City but after tomorrow we will have played 3 of the top six in the last four games without losing much ground. During that time there has been a lot of ‘West Ham are all but safe’ which I thought was very premature. i think the bookies have had us at about 14-1 against. Unless we get absolutely slaughtered tomorrow I doubt whether those odds will go down much below 10-1 or therebouts. So it is still quite possible but nothing much has changed in our case in the last month.

  4. Just to cheer you up a bit more 64.West Brom cannot mathematically catch us even if they win their last 2 they can only accumulate 34 points.

  5. erm, it is quite possible that by the time we play Everton we won’t have picked up any more points! Man City going for 100 wins 100+ goals, Leicester with a rocket up their arse after being hammered 5-0, Man Utd will want to finish above Liverpool. This could go to the wire!!

  6. If we happen to avoid relegation it should be a wake up call to the owners and board.The times of penny pinching is over or we go down the Birmingham road.
