....and almost certainly "down to" 18th place, by a quarter past seven on Saturday.

Think we will win this one, but one thing I do know is that Carlos Sanchez needs to play. We have to stiffen our midfield. It is essential

nice to have something on the line for this one. manager's job hanging by a thread (if he's not already gone), loser ends the weekend in the bottom three. gives us something to chat about on the train down.

It's pretty clear we need to go five at the back - we won't. I think Snodgrass and Noble both need a rest. I'd bring Diop and Haller in for them, let Antonio and Anderson play wide of Haller and have Fornals working his nuts off in the middle with Rice.

We've done them on the counter before. Antonio needs Haller to occupy players for him. Wouldn't be against them two up top and Anderson playing centrally in behind

Going into this match with Pellegrini in charge, is effectively forfeiting the game.

You can divine quite a bit about our current state that David Martin and Carlos Sanchez are considered utterly essential cogs.

I can’t back these players or manager to turn up and play with the required hunger and desire to get anything from this game.
I feel sad thinking this way about the team I support.
Please prove me wrong West Ham.

The turning point in our season , Antonio to score off his back and go on a scoring run that sees him pick up the Golden Boot and helps West Ham qualify for Europe [ maybe ] .

I'm starting to worry that we're going down. I don't think there's a worse team than us. Even Southampton, Norwich, Villa, Newcastle etc... Show a little bit of fight. We're a nothing team with no identity and no work ethic.

We need a change of tactics, we have to try something different, he has changed players but never changes the formation, it really does feel like Groundhog Day.

3-5-2

Martin,
Diop Balbuena Ogbonna
Fredricks Rice Sanchez Fornals Snodgrass
Antonio Haller

Subs, Roberto Anderson Noble Holland Yarmolenko Ajeti Masuaku

Still think we will get beat. 2-1 Saints

Che Adams yet to score a league goal after a big-money move, you know the script...
