Right lads action this time please – not words!

Morgan+Amalfitano+West+Ham+United+v+Liverpool+CswSINzPf6RlI remember laughing out loud when I was told by a Boleyn big hitter a few weeks ago: “Don’t worry about our finishing position – we have an easy run in and will end up in the top eight!”

I guess if we consider games against relegation threatened teams such as Leicester  City, QPR and Aston Villa ( all away) , Manchester City (away) and an end of season game at Newcastle as easy then all will be well.

Stoke City, Burnley and Everton at home aren’t the easiest either with the Clarets in particular fighting hard in every game to secure their Premier League future.

But there we are, it’s all in the eyes of the beholder although personally I can’t see any genuine gimmees on our run-in  although I find it hard to believe that QPR won’t be beaten and anything other that a win on Saturday would be hard to take.

Morgan Amalfitano – like most players before games – says the right things but we know all about words and actions.

He says:”We have a lot of games against the teams below us, but that’s not going to be easy. You have to be focused and we will be against Leicester.”

“We’ve had a week’s rest due to the international break and hopefully we will be able to follow the last game and build on the win we had against Sunderland at home, because we need that.

“Maybe it is not good to have that break straight away after a win, but we will see. The rest could do us good.”

As he says: “We’ll see” but after the mid-season slump the fans deserve a big finish. Let’s hope  it really is about the action this time and not all those well rehearsed words.

  1. What we do on the run-in depends entirely on whether it is our pre-Christmas team that shows up to play those games or our post Christmas team.
    If it turns out to be our pre-Christmas team, then the answer is yes, we’ll easily win most of those matches and easily finish 8th. Or even higher

  2. I really cant see a particularly easy away game there.Leicester are bottom but on there day can play some decent football.Villa have sherwood trying to fire them up & QPR as a derby could produce any result.It does appear Man.City away is our easiest game 😉

    • Yes Tyson, but maybe you forget we have Sam and he perfectly knows how to win every match thanks to his sophisticated and chameleon tactics. Don’t underestimate the power of his brain.

      • Sorry Matte,i cant talk to you tonight.Italy v England,all friendliness is put on hold for two hours,lol 😀

  3. Ahahahaha… Ok, if Sam was on your bench we would have any chance to win this game. We are lucky…

  4. If sam was our manager Nolan would be England captain 😀

  5. There are no gimme’s but that is why this run in will be a good test, we are playing without the pressure of a relegation battle, if the players have the right attitude then the teams such as QPR, Leicester and Burnley should be easy to keep under pressure and exert cracks but if the team isn’t focused like the Palace game then we will get what we deserve. No team more than West Ham should understand that the teams at the bottom will be 100% focused they have everything to play for and Leicester and Burnley have not gone down easilly in any matches, they epitomise their respective managers.
