Av we got any hope?

Premier League West Ham United

comment on the article

So Avram has to win one game in the next three to secure his tenure! We currently have 12 points. If we DO win just one out of three, we will have played 20 games and secured 15 points and STILL be bottom of the league!
We have four games to play over 15 days.

Wolves currently on 15 points have got 3 away games (including us) and one home game with Wigan. They could be good for six points and a total of 21 points.

Wigan currently on 16 points have got three home games and one away and should also be good for at least six points and a total of 22+ points.

Fulham, currently on 16 points, have 1 home game against WHUFC and 3 tough away games, Liverpool, Stoke and Spurs. Personally I can't see Fulham taking more than 4 points from these games but that still makes 20.

WHU are away to Blackburn, away to Fulham, home to Everton then home to Wolves. The way we are performing we would be very very lucky to take 6 points which would leave us with 18 points, still bottom of the table.

Villa, Birmingham and Everton all have some pretty tough games in the next fortnight and could well find themselves flirting with us around the bottom if results go against them.

Given that this is an absolutely perfect time for the Irons to strike, why is Grant being given further amnesty when its reasonably obvious that he cannot inspire or guide us to success, or even to safety, given his record so far.
Time is up for our Israeli friend, we need a firebrand to kickstart the club and get us back to regular winning ways.
How much longer do we have to suffer the incompetence of this owner/management team? We are not asking to become champions but we are asking that our place in the premiership is made secure and the longer it's left in the hands of the current regime, the less chance we have of surviving.
Grant/Sullivan/Gold/Brady OUT!!!!!

Sullivan,Gold,Grant Get Out!!!!!!!!!!

Sullivan and Gold are totally unprofessional and lacking in class. They look like a couple of cheap eastend market traders and act like them too, go back to what you do best, importing cheap porn dvd's and drop Avram at the nearest brothel on your way out.

Please answer the following:

Why have we signed the injury prone Benny Macarthy, Hitsperger, Ben Hiem?
Why have we signed Jacobsen and that New Zealand clown to shore up our defence?
Why did we sign Berrara and not his international team mate Salceido who is a good left back now playing in the prem?
Why is our defence still unorganised and incapable of defending basic Sunday league crosses?

Most of the above I think the blame lands at the managers door step minus the Macarthy signing. Why did we give this guy a four year contract?

Claret and Blue through and through.

Allardyce? Oh come on! I don't believe what I am reading.I would sooner they went down than play that sort of football. This pair have got to be a joke. Why not Chris Hughton? But to be fair to AG the players are rubbish no matter what formation he puts out.

If a club with the history of "playing football" behind them appoints a manager like big Sam then it shows how out of touch the owners are. I too would rather get relegated than have SA in charge. When will the players be picked up on for being hopeless, AG isn't a great manager but the players have their part to play in the current situation

Its a good start to realise that West Ham are not too good to go down.
Now you need to get it out of your heads that The Premiership needs West Ham, that is simply not true!


Sullivan and co have a long term plan and unfortunately relegation is part of that plan.
West Ham will be relegated by early March, quickly followed by Wolves and possibly my club, Birmingham (although I hope the latter can string together a few decent results)

You heard it here first!

Top six, if they were good enough they would be in the top six, fantasy world some supporters live in. I agree with "FOXMAN", should be gone & will be gone - ta -ra Hammers, this is 2010 not 1966 - Sheffield lost out to you, now go join em !
Big Sam, Chris H or the Special One ain't gonna save you now. Big London club my a##e.

An away win with a Home game next saves teams. You're looking in trouble but it can swing around
---------------------
Little pat on the back for myself winkeye

Bottom for Xmas is a barrier but you're off it already and have almost a guaranteed 3 points off Wolves who have lost 8 in a row soon to be 9 on the road
