Rested Hammers ready as Pardew admits anxieties

alan-pardew_2442206bWest Ham go into action against a West Brom team tomorrow (Tues) that can probably consider themselves very fortunate to have taken a point against Arsenal at the Hawthorns yesterday (Sun).

The Hammers  have had a week’s break since the Bournemouth game and will be entirely rested for a game which is of critical importance.

It gives them a big advantage over West Brom hopefully who came through a bruising encounter with Arsenal yesterday grabbing a point via a very fortunate penalty award.

Michail Antonio will miss the game for the Hammers but Mark Noble may be available as the team again look to escape the bottom three.

Meanwhile Baggies and former Hammers boss Alan Pardew – despite being pleased with his team’s display – admits it’s tough keeping negative thoughts at bay.

He said afterwards:  “We have two days before we go to West Ham. I’ve got to turn this team around and mentally it’s a battle because I think it’s easier to tell yourself ‘I can’t do it’.”

  1. Dare i say.This is our biggest game of the season.Only 3 points will do because of the way the league is panning out.Cannot remember so many teams from the bottom to the top 8 covered by so few points.

  2. If we can’t beat teams like WBA then we are in for a really tough run, WBA under Palace are very organised ironically more so than they had been under Pullis this season, so it will probably be tough and we are going to have to find a way to turn superior possession into 3 points something we have struggled to do for the last two years.
