West Ham safe from relegation


West Ham are now safe from relegation!

And they were joined this evening by Nottingham Forest who scored a hugely exciting 1-0 win over Arsenal at the City Ground.

All it comes down tomorrow is whether former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce can keep Leeds in the Premier League as he faces what he describes as a “do or die” clash at the London Stadium.

The day kicked off with Everton scoring a late goal at Wolves to snatch a 1-1 draw but allows them to only reach 36 points behind our current 37 and with a thorough awful goal difference of  minus 24.

Leicester too can only reach the same number of points by winning their last two games – one of which is against us whilst Leeds can manage 37 with two final wins.

They have a terrible goal difference of minus 25 whilst Forest escaped through their win but with the worst goal difference of all of minus 30 apart bottom of the table Saints with minus 35 .

    If Moyes stays then i fear next season could be one we go down.If we beat Florence&tina and are in the europa league then his system,in part,will work.But it will fail in the premiership and managers that are one trick ponys will not survive.We need a manager that can change and get his squad to adapt to the various styles they have to face.
