Hiddink tips the Hammers

Chelsea-Chelsea-News-Chelsea-Team-News-Jose-Mourinho-Jose-Mourinho-Sacked-Mourinho-Sacked-Guus-Hiddink-Guus-Hiddink-627609Chelsea boss Gus Hiddink is backing the Irons to clinch a Champions League place this season.

The Hammers have to defy the weight of history tomorrow as they haven’t lost to us since 2002 t Stamford Bridge but Hiddink admits we look a different side this time.

He said:  “They are in the mood being in fifth position. They are dreaming of making a dream come true to make fourth position.

“Can they? Yes. This is a team that have not just shown a lot of character, but they’ve also shown they can play. They have players who can score and be decisive at any minute.

“I expect a tough match because they are doing very well. If you see them play at home and away, they are a courageous team, who can be very fast on the counter attack.

“They have very skilful players who can make decisions in a second. It’s a nice and adventurous team to watch.”

  1. At last a real pundit that knows we are going to win this week
    Or is this trying to make us feel comfortable before the storm
    He seems genuine when he speaks and knows his time is short, I believe him

  2. Every thing he said is true. Why would you not believe him?

  3. Its just tactics. Make us complacent. Don’t listen. I expect Bilic to dismiss it straight off the bat!

  4. Well clearly minds games play a part in it but it is possible for a manager to give an honest assessment of the opposition as well.You don’t always have to go looking for a trip wire.

  5. Watched to many silly whined ups between Wenger,Ferguson,Marinio and co to believe anything any manager says until the new breed arrived Slav Howe and co
    Just like the old days when a manager with respect Greenwood,Ramsey,Clough and co told the truth and no agenda,
    Maybe Hiddink is old school and we can believe him
    We will see

  6. Spot on Gus set! We’re comin’ ta get yer.

  7. All the guy has done is talk about us as a team.What he says is exactly what 99% of us think ourselves.He is just stating facts.No Bobby traps that I can see,lol
