As an optimist I have the better time. Things will always turn out great eventually :grin:
Always take the optimism outta the realism,and you'll always get there mate.

Oh and F**k pessimism right off...gets yer nowhere.

I hope and intend on going to all of them 🤞 The only one I might not get a ticket for is Anderlecht, I’m on 46 points. All travel booked too except for Manchester train home on the Monday morning.

My boy who's 18 is playing semi pro football and I think he prefers the two games and no training. The games are thick and fast at the moment but they had a mini run in the fa cup.

I think the game has moved on ,and is just a bit quicker and faster than Alan Brazil days. No comparison.

You won't find a professional footballer who prefers training to playing a proper game
They would play a match every day if they could

Im in the fortunate position to do all of them.

Liverpool away is the awkward one.

And you wont find a professional team Manager who prefers playing twice a week.

Wolves - 2-1 win
Fulham - 2-0 win
Soton - 1-1 draw
Liverpool - 1-1 draw
Bournemouth - 4-3 win
Man Utd - 1-2 win

Four wins & two draws for the Mighty Hammers next month :coolas:
You’ve forgotten to take your medication again haven’t you :lol:

Realistically can see 8-9 points from that lot. Defeats to Liverpool and man United for sure. Win against Bournemouth. Could be anything from Wolves, Fulham and Soton.
