Toon decimated by injury ahead of Irons clash

Toon decimated by injury gives Hammers a boost 

West Ham have received a massive boost ahead of their crucial clash with Newcastle United this weekend. The Magpies are battling a severe injury crisis, potentially handing the Hammers a golden opportunity to grab all three points.

With both David Moyes and Edddie Howe under pressure for differing reasons, the crunch clash could go a long way to deciding who keeps their job.

Both teams are vying for a Euro spot next season, making this a pivotal match. A win for Newcastle would see them breathing down our neck in the standings, whilst a West Ham victory would create a comfortable seven-point cushion.

Whilst West Ham have a mostly fit squad, Newcastle are in dire straits. Up to eight first-team players are unavailable, including their top scorer Callum Wilson, who has a history of tormenting the Hammers.  Other key players like goalkeeper Nick Pope, defender Sven Botman, and midfielder Tonali are also out.

With key players missing for Newcastle, David Moyes will hopefully smell blood and go on the front foot.  If the Hammers can play to their potential, they have a strong chance of securing something at St. James’ Park.

  1. On the face of it, I would agree with you. But, this is West Ham that we are talking about! 66 years I have been a supporter, & I am well accustomed to seeing The Hammers squander such opportunities ! Nevertheless, hope springs eternal. Commiserations about Hugh; please pass on my sympathies to his family & convey my thanks for all his efforts on Claret & Hugh.
