Hammers top FA Cup record against Toffees

So we’re off to Everton in the Third Round of the FA Cup which at first glance isn’t the best draw in the world!Everton

However, look a little bit deeper and you discover that The Toffees have failed to beat us in the competition since 1957.

The two sides last met in 1991 at the Boleyn when we won 2-1 and in 1980 at Goodison we came out 2-1 winners of a replay after drawing with The Toffeess 1-1 four days earlier.

In 1963 we scored a 1-0 win over them having suffered our last loss against them  57 years ago at Goodison 2-1.iRONS BADGE

Quite apart from that there are quite a few scores left up at Goodison to be sorted after the bad tempered League clash and James Tomkins in particular may feel he has a point to prove.

Holders Arsenal will host Hull City in a repeat of May’s Wembley final.

Their meeting is one of four all Premier League ties as Burnley host Tottenham, we are off to Goodison and Newcastle United visit Leicester City.

  1. I am looking a little deeper and I don’t think anything that happened in 1963, 1980 and 1991 is going to help us at all. This is not the sort of tie where we can expect to be able to rotate/rest a bunch of our first team regulars and come away with a result. This is a tough draw, away from home, against a team we seem to struggle against.

  2. It will be the 4th match in 8 days, the last of Chelski, Gooners, WBA and then Everton. It will be time to trust the manager, this is when we find out how good our squad is because I would say in terms of importance, starting with “absolutely must win” decending to just “really really must win” it’s Arsenal then WBA then Chelski then Everton. Does anyone disagree with that? I think 6 points from the 2 home matches is crucial, Chelski, I’d love to catch but let’s be realistic here, which leaves Everton least important I’m afraid. If we accept that now there will be less moaning.

    Dare I suggest of our 4 best strikers they will get a couple of matches each, plus a subs appearance, so limiting them to 2 and a half matches each, Carlton will chip in from the bench.

    Midfield we have loads and Poyet is now back so it’s 4 from Downing, Amalfitano, Noble, Jarvis, Poyet, Nolan, Kouyette, Song, so a couple of matches each.

    I worry about defence where I really only feel super comfortable with Ginge, Winston, Tonks and Jenks, Creswell. Clearly Demel and O’Brien will support those 5 so we have 7 into 4. We have young Burke too but I’d resist him.

    In goal I’d go all 4 matches Adrian.

    Trust in Sam guys!
