“We’ll finish with 66 points” – the fans react

ClaretandHugh’s associate editor Sean Whetstone bravely put his head on the block by  forecasting the remainder of West Ham’s League games and coming up with a final points total of 66.

Here’s how members of the CandH Facebook forum at https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/ have reacted.

sakhoO A bit on the optimistic side I think! I reckon another 20 points.

O I like Sean’s optimism, and I think if we can keep everyone fit, this looks possible.

O That’s very optimistic! We’ve have four wins from our last 16 I think. Eight wins from our last 12 seems a bit of a stretch.

Anything is possible. We could really do with someone going on a bit of a scoring run too

O When was the last time we looked at the second half of the season so relaxed?

O Not many fully understand Sak’s influence and the fact that Payet needs Lanzini . Those two lift a good team into a super team if we can get them back and keep them fit

O Kouyate’s return will help run down the opposition too
O Hope Sean’s right but I could see us only getting between seen and 11 points more. Sorry, been supporting them too long. With this club either is possible.

O Bit generous on the points. Don’t think we’ll get any from Arsenal or Spurs. I do think we will beat Chelsea, sure we’ll finish stronger than we have done.

O Interesting. There’s always this feeling of closing Armageddon within most of the WHU fans, even when things look much better than previously predicted. I, on the other hand, am optimistic and I’m with Sean on this. There will be a lot of points won in the last 12 games.
O I went for 62 points at the start of the season but that include a win over Norwich at this stage of the season

O Depends on injuries.If AC could stay fit alongside Lanzini, Payet, Sacks and Kouyate would like to think 14-16pts. AC is key for m

  1. I have 5 wins (home to Sunderland, Palace, Man U, Swans and away to Brom) and 4 draws (away to Toffee’s, Chelski, Stoke and home to Watford) losses against Spuds (hate to say that) Arse and Leicester. 19 out of a possible 36 and a win in the FA Cup Final. Will that be enough for Europe?

  2. 60 points for me but would love us to pick up 66,
    I would settle for 50 if we win the cup,
    Just can’t say the word loose to the Spuds in the league unless we beat them in the cup final what a day that would be ( just another dream )

  3. I would tend to agree with Ssaunders that 18 – 20 is more likely or margingally above 1.5points per game. I certainly hope we get 26 as Sean has put his neck on the line but I am not quite as optimistic.

  4. No chance at all of reaching 60+ points, let alone 66. I think some people forget we are WEST HAM UNITED.

    We have 12 games left and despite all our wins against the top teams we have also struggled verses the so called lesser teams.

    Anything approaching our highest ever Premier points total (57) would be fantastic. Personally I feel we will end up between 53-58 points.

    Will be very happy with that as it is clear progress from last season. This season no matter what happens as already been one of our best in recent history. So many highs and very few lows.

    Just don’t get to carried away. Progress ah season is key and so far we are doing just that.

  5. P If Slaven gets us finishing with a plus goal difference then that alone would be massive. We have never done that in the (brief) Premier League history.

    +9 so far, looking very good.

  6. If we do finish on 66 points. What a fitting end, for The Boleyn & our World Cup Heroes.
