Pundit can’t see a win for two threatened clubs

Former England international striker Emile Heskey  (left) clearly believes the Hammers are safe from the drop.

He has joined a growing lobby of opinion which appears to feel that Norwich City, Aston Villa and Bournemouth are the clubs looking at a slide into the Championship.

From a very gloomy restart against Wolves and Spuds the Irons have turned things round with four points from the  last two games.

And with a run-in which looks more comfortable than any of the threatened clubs around them, the Hammers are now seemingly on their way out of trouble according to Heskey.

Despite a natural anxiety until the job is finally done it’s hard to disagree with him given a four point gap between us  Villa and Bournemouth and the Irons having a near extra point via a far better goal difference.

Heskey now has little doubt it seems on who is going down and told BBC Radio 5 Live: “I can’t see either Aston Villa or Bournemouth winning another game.

“Villa and Bournemouth’s run-ins are much harder than West Ham and Watford’s. Watford manager Nigel Pearson has been in this position before with Leicester and got them out of it, so he knows what it takes and what his squad have to do.”

  1. Nothing is done yet, but current form certainly suggests the Chelsea win has boosted us into realising we need determination on top of our skills.

    This may also be what some effortless players needed to understand if you don’t put in the shift someone else will. I still hold hope that Anderson will realise his potential with a bit of hard work, but if he ever reached it I wouldn’t want him diving into tackles like many expect.

    However, I have supported West Ham all my life and am all too familiar with ‘the loss pulled out of a potentially great win’ scenario. Points safe is my safe and will be because we are not down there from being successful all season.

  2. Supported the hammers for over 50 years, as much as i love em, they are more than capable of blowing this season as the other clubs around them. I can’t see for the life of me why they cannot see a game out. The opposition seem to score at the end of the first half and at the end of the game why why why ?
