It's been a long, long season - and with the help of a small miracle down in Southampton it could come to an end this afternoon.
West Ham could avoid the play-offs and be promoted to the Premier League this afternoon should they beat Hull by a handsome margin and Coventry upset the form books down at Southampton - an unlikely scenario, yet still a tantalising possibility.
For those unable to attend in person, live updates from both Upton Park and Southampton will be provided throughout the afternoon on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=140065.
And for those supporters unable to attend the match of access TV in the UK, a number of sources will be streaming the game across the web as both matches are being televised live (West Ham v Hull by SkySports and Soton v Coventry by the BBC).
As usual, any available video - or audio - feeds will be listed in our streaming thread at www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=133293 (a number of which have been posted already).
KUMB.com will, as always, bringing you match summaries at both half time and the final whistle, with the thoughts of both managers to follow this evening/tomorrow morning and those of the opposition fans sometime tomorrow.
Meanwhile, if you've not already had the chance to take a look check out Preview Percy's unique look ahead to the game here: www.kumb.com/article.php?id=3034.
