Even this summer we have seen plenty of talk on the clubs usual social media outlets talking about top six and European football etc. It’s not just the move - there’s still a continued and clear amount of indirect pressure being put on Pellegrini by the club directly and indirectly. It’s Sullivan’s M.O....and part of the reason a lot of the fanbase don’t like the board whilst plenty like the manager.

As i’ve mentioned elsewhere - we’re bottom half in terms of wages and investment since the move to the LS so I would suggest they are ‘hopes’ not ‘expectations’.

Loving the style of football :thup:

I fully expect us to pick up points against Villa and Man U; it's Bournemouth away , three games down the line, that has the feel of a bell-wether game. Win that and we're cookin'.

You can't argue with that. Villa away, will be tough, but still very winnable. Man U, should be 3 points and its about time, we got another win at Bournemouth. Callum Wilson is the one we need to watch, will score, unless he picks up a knock, ruling him out against us. We can but hope

From quoting and agreeing with an Iain Dale diatribe on Pellegrini after just two matches you've got us winning 3 points from every team we play against . :)

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has never had the hunger and vision they need to save them in the Premier League…

After Liverpool and Manchester City, the other Champions League places are genuinely up for grabs.

Not just for Leicester, the most obvious candidates, but for West Ham, Everton and perhaps even Wolves.

For so long we have wanted attractive attacking and even winning football. We have been fobbed off with mediocrity with previous managers. Pell Boy is a breath of fresh air. Long may his reign continue.

I hope Manuel shows his players back to back videos of our game v Norwich and their game v Man City.

test for pelle boy to get a tune out of this west ham team consistently. he needs to get us starting games fast and not the usual slow 15 minutes it takes us to wake up.
hard and fast and we will deliver !

Was my best mate at school although we have lost touch since. I like to remind him of the fact he changed teams from supporting Chelsea to Fulham as a lad - cant really accuse him of gloryhunting :lol:

A very pro Sullivan piece that which makes one a little suspicious. :arry:
