Results go West Ham’s way

Losses for Bournemouth, Newcastle United and Aston Villa went West Ham’s way this afternoon, as well as the one all draw for Brighton this afternoon. The Hammers will be hoping that Manchester United do them a favor by beating Watford tomorrow and will be cheering on Wolves to beat Norwich on Sunday.

Although West Ham remains 18th on 24 points in the relegation zone a score draw against Liverpool would be enough to take the Hammers out the relegation zone above Aston Villa on goal difference while an unlikely win over the Premier League leaders would push them up to a lofty 16th place.

While no-one is expecting West Ham to beat Liverpool on Monday night nothing is fully predictable in the Premier League.

Liverpool have opened up a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League this season, having won 25 of their opening 26 fixtures.

If they beat West Ham at Anfield on Monday, Liverpool will equal Manchester City’s record of 18 successive top-flight wins, while extending their unbeaten record to 44 matches.

  1. That’s so wrong to rely on others to decide the Hammers future when Pellegrini and his joke of a signing Roberto got us in this mess? Pellegrini should have sorted it out back in October Talk about pride before a fall ?? Our squad are shot on confidence and it is something they need to get back and fast ? the clocks ticking and games are running out (winnable ones that is) and my confidence in Moyes ain’t that great since the Bournemouth game and his statements don’t bode well with me? Glass is half empty than half full for me on present results

  2. Its a sad fact that we are hoping other results go our way as I find it very very difficult to understand why we are in the position we are. Our players ( not the management team or the owners) are the only hope we have of staying up, and worryingly I think they are too fragile for a relegation battle.I hope and pray that they prove me wrong.

  3. The football gods have really looked after us as far as the others around us are concerned with most still having to play both liverpool and man city.Time to show some bravery and start giving it a go.If Moyes picks the same team as Weds we have lost before we kick off and the fans will be after another sacking.

  4. Results haven’t “gone our way”. What has happened is that only Brighton, so far, have picked up a point this weekend. With a bit of luck, Watford & Norwich will also lose – & then, we will be in exactly the same position as we were before (except Brighton will have gone one further point ahead of us). The only way results will “go our way” is if we get at least a point at Liverpool. It is totally misleading to contend that we are any better off this weekend than we were before. The only thing that has happened is that things, by and large, haven’t got any worse !

  5. West hams managements 1st mistake was signing pellegrini it’s 2nd was signing moyles, you don’t hire an old duffer at the end of their career with habitual failure if you want success for your team, yes pellegrini won the league once with man City but nothing with any team after that & yes moyles had one season with man u where they had a 50% win streak but nothing successful before or after that, if they couldn’t convince a manager with better pedigree to take on the hammers then they should have looked to sign someone younger looking for their 1st managerial role, both pellegrini & moyles have had their careers, both were & are out of ideas & falling back on past strategies that brought nothing but failure, not having a decent 2nd goal keeper to step up while fabianski was injured was proof pellegrini didn’t know what he was doing as was continously playing Antonio in the wrong position, moyles shows his ineptitude by setting the team up to defend instead of attack, the Brighton & man city game shows he hasn’t got a clue.
    with only 12 games left & only 6 of those games west ham have a chance on winning or drawing, so anything from 6 to 18 possible points, moyles has to set them up as an offensive team for each & every game for any chance of beating relegation

  6. Our predicament has less to do with the management and the owners and much more to do with the players!

    Mis-placed passes that gives away possession, failure to track opponents, standing still and being easy to mark, failure to get into space at receive a ball, no sign of a football brain to unlock the defence, taking the ball to the corner flag and lobbing in a speculative cross to a lone striker, failing to convert the few chances we create, the inability to deal with a ball cut back into our box from the by line, an inability to prevent crosses coming into our box……and so the list of basic lack of cababilities goes on. Blame the management all you like for recruitment and team selection, but it’s the very well paid players that kick the ball and deliver or not the performance needed.
