Three away games on trot holds no fears

bilic_main_3437996b-large_transpjliwavx4cowfcaekesb3kvxit-lggwcwqwla_rxju8West Ham’s programme of three away games to open their new season will hold no fears for the players and manager.

For  the team  showed last season they were a different proposition on the road than they were at the London Stadium where they will be hoping the season of adjustment translates into much better form this time around.

Based on last season the Irons would  have finished 11th  in a league based on away points only  and would have finished ninth, above Everton, Stoke and West Brom.

They collected just  25 points  at the London Stadium but even in an injury-plagued season managed to produce a series of results..

They managed wins over Palace, Swansea, Middlesbrough and Burnley with draws coming against Manchester United, Liverpool, Stoke, Sunderland and Watford.

  1. I’ve just done a quick check and during the past 10 seasons we have always played each side at home once and away once and this season coming is no different. We should be comforted by this. I really couldn’t care less who we play and in what order as the secret is to have the maximum number of our best players available when we do.

  2. I think if we get 3 or 4 points from the opening 3 fixtures we will have put ourselves in a decent position no reason to think we can’t achieve that, overall probably best to meet Man U away first game of the season they might be a bit rusty and we may spring a surprise, the fixture list before a game has been played looks pretty good in the first half of the season but results and form can make a mockery of that 🙂

  3. I’m looking for 7 points from first 3 fixtures

  4. Outbreak of optimism on C&H! 7 points from three away games, starting with Man U side which has handed Jose a stash of cash? It could happen…pigs might fly….
