Saturday 26th November KO 5.20PM, Boleyn Ground, Green Street, E13
(Last 8, H&A)
West Ham United: DWLWWDWW
Derby County: LDDLWLLL
West Ham United have taken 10 points from their last 5 home games. This is bang on course for Allardyce's 2 points per game target where as Derby County have only taken 4 points from their last 5 away games. West Ham currently sit top half in 8th in the 'Home' table for the whole season, securing 14 points in their 8 games at The Boleyn Ground, just under the manager's target.
Derby are sitting a mid-table 12th in the 'Away' table for the season, after amassing 10 points from their 8 games on their travels.
Men To Watch
Carlton Cole and Sam Baldock. Our two top scorers are hitting form, and look a threat to any defence in the league. Big Sam would be crazy not starting Cole, who has put in two consecutive game changing appearances after coming on from the subs bench.
I don't have a clue.
There could be friction in the Brady/Peschisolido household, as our vice-chair's husband made 91 appearances for The Rams between 2004 and 2007, scoring 20 goals.
My match-thread winning run will come to an end, and we will share the spoils with a point a piece.

Derby at home is usually a comfortable win.
Can anyone remember losing to them?
And Marc Keller for the great away goals thread.
They seem to be losing monotonously lately. Something like 2 or 3 one to us IMO, setting us up for the big one away at Boro.
Yes mate on Sky, can't see a huge attendance for this, trying to get to it but it's the missus godchilds 1st birthday on that day and she's having a party so I've got to try and worm my way out of it!
Looking forward to this game. Should be about 30 of the stockholm hammers meeting up to have a few beers and watch the match
I don't. This will be a tough game, make no mistake about it. Nigel Clough will have his troups set out to contain us and and we are not playing well enough to trounce anyone at the moment. BFS is not a gambler, so he won't drop Faubert and bring in Demel which would give us a completely different dimension and which would provide us with much needed width and an out ball on the right, so we can expect much of the same stifdled play. If we win, I reckon it will only be by the odd goal and 1-0 is the most likely result.
If you've got Demel in, you don't need Faubert as well.
BFS is not a gambler no. However, we are at home, Cole and Baldock up front hopefully, which is proving to be an effective partnership. I don't see the need to change the team by bringing in Demel as the team is winning (just about but on a good run nonetheless).
Derby started the season well but they have now lost the last 3, conceding 8 goals in those 3 games. It's there for the taking I think mate
I'm sure we lost 2-1 at home in the last time we were down. Didn't Gavin Williams score? I remember watching it Lunchtime in the pub as it was on Sky. A true West Ham performance
