Supporters’ split on relegation question

Over 54% of 1,563 Claret and Hugh readers taking part in yesterday’s poll believe that West Ham will survive the drop this season with the remaining 46% saying we will be relegated.

West Ham have 23 points from 23 games with 15 games remaining. If they carry on a point average per game they will not reach the magic 40 points which usually guarantees safety in the Premier League.

The Hammers have been relegated twice since the Premier League was formed in 1992. Once in the 2002/2003 season they they famously finished 18th on 42 points with a good team when 44 points was need for safety that year and more recently in the 2010/2011 under Avram Grant when West Ham finished 20th on 33 points when 40 points was needed to be safe.

Outside the Premier League West Ham have been relegated a further four times from the top flight division.
1931/1932 finished 22nd in Division 1 (31 points) 1977/1978 finished 20th in Division 1 (32 points) 1988/1989 finished 19th in Division 1 (38 points) 1991/1992 finished 22nd in Division 1 (38 points)

  1. No pace in the team trying to keep it 0-0 or win 0-1 away.That is okay but not when you can’t keep a clean sheet. Very frustrating not all playing for the team. Also who is going to come to a team in a relegation fight.

  2. Reality will sink in if Antonio does not keep fit.
    Championship a very real scenario now.
    Started d by Biilic, continued by MP…
    I’m so sick and tired of hearing how good a pro Zabaletta is, how hard Snodgrass works, how much MR WEST HAM Mark Noble means to West Ham, how good a wingback Masuaka could be,
    That we shouldn’t sell Diop for less than 50m (LOL) AVERAGE CENTRE HALF…
    PLUS crap Sanchez, Yarmelenko no hart, how Mr sick note Reid can help us… How Cresswell is doing etc… Ball watches cannot be relied upon to defend properly.. Etc…
    Fredericks flatters to deceive.
    No Fornals…
    Rice has gone backwards massively I’m afraid,sick of the excuses being made for him
    He is pedestrian like 90% of our team, tries hard but unable to read game properly. Work load too much…
    Otherwise all OK… Stay positive OMW… What a average bunch we have are.. I do believe in miracles but the trap door to the championship is starting to open…
    Gold and Sullivan till 2023…that sums it up…

    Good luck… For Flip sake we need 11 more players to become a top 15 side…

  3. Del.PE a very good observation Imho ish.but do you have the answer to this DIRE situation if so tell SGB And DM so it will.all be hunky dorry come May
