Play-off dates: confirmed

Barring a major collapse by Southampton, West Ham will play the first leg of their play-off semi final away from home on Thursday, 3rd May.

Tonight's 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate secured third place in the Championship for the Hammers - although the Saints' 3-1 win at Peterborough means that only two defeats for the Hampshire club, combined with two wins for West Ham in their remaining league games, can prevent United from going into the play-offs.

The return leg for the semi-final would take place at the Boleyn Ground the following Monday afternoon, 7th May - with the final taking place at Wembley 12 days later on Saturday, 19th May.

Full details of all dates and times as follows:

Play off semi final, first leg

Thursday, 3rd May 2012: 6th place v West Ham/Soton (7.45pm)
Friday, 4th May 2012: 5th place v 4th place (7.45pm)

Monday, 7th May 20122: West Ham/Soton v 6th place (4.30pm)
Wednesday, 9th May 20122: 4th place v 5th place (7.45pm)

''Allardyce's true unforgivable act was too give in. He had his way of football and it worked and the results were coming, albeit unimpressively. But he wanted more. What followed was a sort of distorted brand of silky/kick and rush park football that as good as handed teams the upper hand in midfield throughout the season.

He should've kept what he knew, or banished it all together.''

''I just hope Boro do us a favour Saturday and we beat Leicester away on Monday. Don't want the Brummies in the play-off final. UP THE HAMMERS.''

''Allardyce lost it for West Ham. In the home games they could only draw, he played Tomkins in midfield and right back. Playing Faubert at right back was also a big mistake. He should have played 4-4-2 in all home games.''

''Anyone know what this mean for season ticket holders? Do we get the home fixture included or will it be like any other Cup game where we get priority before general sale?''
