Optimistic fan sends timely reminder

The programme for the game against the Foxes which we lost 2-5

The programme for the game against the Foxes which we lost 2-5

A ClaretandHugh follower has sent a message to fans telling them how things turned out when we had the sort of disastrous run of results we are currently experiencing.

We lost four on the trot and shipped a shed load of goals as things went from bad to worse but everything of course turned out fine!

It was 51 years ago when from the start of September when we shipped 17 goals in four games and things looked as bleak as they do today.

The CandH follower – OldIron – said: “Slav is the man and as a defender of note he will sort out this problem.

God help Southampton if he sorts it out this week. The same thing happened in 65-66 when we shipped 17 goals in four games and what happened that season?

We reached the semi final of the League Cup , the quarter finals of the European Vup Winners Cup and came 12th in the league.

The four matches where it went completely wrong were aganst Sunderland (1 -2 ), Sheffield United (3 – 5), Liverpool 1 – 5 and Leicester 2 – 5 .

It was sorted then and it will be sorted now.”

  1. I’ll have a pint of whatever this guy’s drinking!

  2. It’s called positivity Michael,something that seems lost on most of our fans 🙂

    • Well, I’m positive that we are in deep doo-doo!

      Apart from the Accrington Stanley game we’ve got games coming up against Southampton, Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and Sunderland. You’d really expect West Ham to get the majority of the points in these four games, but with our defensive woes and the Teams seemingly total lack of confidence the outcome of these games will determine our Season.

      I’d like to be positive but reality keeps gnawing at my confidence – it’s going to be a long, hard winter!
