Lawro predicts back to back Hammers wins

MarkLawrenson1BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has done the unthinkable by predicting a second West Ham win in a row this Saturday but can’t help but wade in the Sam Allardyce debate by questioning why Hammers fans would boo him tomorrow.

Lawro told the BBC website: “I was at Ewood Park last weekend to see West Ham take Blackburn Rovers apart in the FA Cup.

The Hammers impressed me a lot with the way they responded when they went behind in the first half, and there was never any doubt that they would go on and win that tie.

Slaven Bilic’s side showed they are not just a good side, they can adapt their style depending on the opposition too – they can either out-play you or they can battle with you.

The return of former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce means this will be the latter, and it should be a close one.

Sunderland were already out of the FA Cup so they had the week off but, beforehand, they were just starting to show that they are beginning to find their feet a little bit.

They took four points from their last three games against Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United and were a bit unlucky not to pick up even more.

There is talk Allardyce might get a mixed reception from the home supporters on Saturday but, as a West Ham fan, why would you boo him?

He kept your team in the Premier League and made some good signings who are still there. Now they have improved and are playing really well, but he has played his part in that too.”

  1. Laura is a real dinosaur – I am sure he is bitter and twisted that we have royally thrashed Liverpool this season (for the record Lawro Played 4, Won 3 Drawn 1, Lost 0 For 7 Against 1) which has not helped matters for him – best to ignore the bloke and let him live in his own fantasy world

  2. Lawro is a Preston North End fan and has reasons to be anti west ham from his fa cup final memories as well as play off experiences. I f you look at his bbc prediction league he has us at the bottom based on his ludicrous consistent prediction that we would lose…

  3. Why predict a win for us if we are so poor and Sunderland so wonderful away from home
    4 out of 9 that’s very good for Hippo,
    I think we picked up 10 out of 12
    Boo Boo that’s the old way Lawerson I don’t think anyone will be doing that,but I would keep your kids along way from most fans because the sort of words coming from most won’t have a boo in them,
    You just don’t understand do you Dikc
    We want good football it’s not all about winning,I would sooner loose 4-5 and watch a great game of football then watch a terrible 0-0 and win a point,I also think a part from the 12% Hippo fans so would most loyal fans,
    Look at the face and then Hippo,s what have they in common,Trump Boris Putin Kim Saville
    Lawerson Hippo all deranged egotistical loosers WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO
    Luckily we have Slav the rocker with a brain

  4. Not sure who I loathe more, the hippo in a rain mac or Tootsie in football boots.

  5. All we need now is for Kevin Kilbane to complain that any booing on Saturday is a actually a sound made to purposefully mock those with Downs Syndrome and we’ll have a full set of “c u next Tuesdays”…

  6. Phew! I was worried that predicting a win for WHU, would neutralise the situation, but my fears were misplaced: he has again acted as touchpaper to a power keg: BOOM! Nice work Lawrenson: You set off the fans whatever you predict…clever sod!

  7. Was not his prediction it was the foot note why would we boo his mate,
    Take no notice of his prediction because shutting your eyes and sticking a pin in a board is not that accurate,
    Still can’t understand people employing him,is it his charisma ?his fashion sense ?
    His management quality ? His football knowledge ( like his geography knowledge )
    Is he cheap ? Beats me we just like to keep people around pass their sale by date,
    Saville,Forsyth,Blackburn,Hall,Blatter,Lawerson, ( I can see a pattern forming )
    How many shades of gray can you take
