Leroy lets loose on Leicester

LEROY (1)West Ham are in such a great place at the moment that anything other than a win is unthinkable against Leicester City tomorrow.

Nigel Pearson’s team are eleven games without a win but played very well against ¬†Manchester City last weekend before going down 1-0. However, another defeat meant they haven’t won since that crazy 5-3 against Manchester United in September.

Meanwhile, the Hammers have been outstanding  and their record against the Foxes at Upton Park shows only one defeat since the sixties.

Now whilst managers, coaches and players don’t look at stuff like that, the fans do and it creates an atmosphere not unlike the mood when we go to Everton.

When the match itself starts they will be thinking: “Oh, blimey there’s Sakho, then there’s Carroll oh and here comes Downing.”

Trust me, that’s not a great feeling and although they won’t be beaten before the start it’s a very daunting Irons line up and it can get to a team in City’s position.

I’m really glad we have this match before the Christmas games against Chelsea and Arsenal because three points will allow us to play with freedom and adventure in those two.

I’m going for Diafra Sakho and Alex Song to score in a 2-0 win.

  1. I hope this is not our banan skin,we will win 1-0 or it could be a goal rush 4-0 or more, if we take all 3 points I believe we can match Arsenal and take at least 1 point off Chelsea and that shoul take us into Jan in the top 4,then with 3 good signings we can get into Europe
    ( still a believer ) COYI

  2. You just know it’s one we should win but sod’s law we’ll end up drawing or losing. Don’t think we will get anything at Chelsea and Arsenal will be another hard game as Jenkinson won’t be able to play against parent club. COYI.
