Postecoglue will know West Ham’s team already


Spurs boss Ange Postecoglue will know West Ham‘s team already along with the formation unless David Moyes jumps entirely out of character and goes in a totally new direction for the game on Thursday evening. I am not holding my breath!

We have a first team and reserve team and are an easy outfit for opposition outfits to work out as was seen at the weekend during the desperately dull performance against Palace. We witnessed the usual backwards and sideways passing, misplaced passing and out of position players doing their best to make things work. They didn’t.

We go into the game again

David Moyes-West Ham-Contract

Postecoglue will know West Ham’s team already

st our deadly rivals unbeaten in our last five games but convincing nobody that we are anything other than a very average team. Things must change against the Spuds who, hard though it is to say it, looked a very decent and gutsy team at Manchester City and are sitting in fifth place as a result right now.

We are in ninth and six points behind them so a win would be the most welcome result one could imagine and it’s a game which should we manage it fits into that “Only West Ham” category. I want it to happen as desperately as imaginable but David Moyes will need to wind the squad up like never before. This is the SpudsĀ  and they have to be beaten. Bragging rights insist on that.

Having said all that I MUST add that I can’t see it happening because we are utterly and totally predictable!
