West Ham barometer rises

Andy Dennis is back with his West Ham barometer produced exclusively for Claret and Hugh.

While West Ham currently sits in fifth place ahead of sixth-placed Spurs this West Ham barometer looks at corresponding games last season matching newly promoted teams against relegated teams in order of their final 2018/2019 league position.

After seven games West Ham are now two points better off in the corresponding games. The Man City defeat was no surprise although we conceded one extra goal compared to last season. We fared better against Brighton with an away point after losing one-nil last season. Wins against Watford away and a home win against Norwich City (matched with Cardiff City) with our Aston Villa point paired with Huddersfield from last season in which we drew 1-1 away from home.

A home win over Manchester United matched last season’s feat but an away draw over Bournemouth improved on a two-nil loss from last season moving the barometer up by one point.

  1. If we’re still on +2 after the next four games then we’ll have done very well.

  2. Goal difference will count for a lot this season , not just the odd point difference . Goal difference is already very apparent .
