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.

Third of the way through, 3 wins, only 1 goal conceded.

Diaz out of the Liverpool game.

We couldn't win them all, could we?

Looks like both Trent & Matip will be missing as well..
Good time for us to hopefully be hitting a bit of form

Won't be a better time to play Liverpool. Out of form and missing many players.

But I am worried that Moyes will as usual give top 6 teams far too much respect and be very defensive and let Liverpool do their thing. You'd hope our new players would change that. We'll see.

11 points from next 21 this month would be very good.

My only concern with the Liverpool game. They don’t deserve the respect atm and if we go at them I think we can win it.

We do seem to have turned a corner. A lot earlier than I expected too .

Both of these statements are spot on.

As impressive as it is to score that many goals in a game it is a Rangers side who are Championship level at best, and with respect to Bournemouth they are no Man City.

I think we'll know by the end of the Bournemouth game where we wil be competing come the March/April time. 6 or more points and I reckon we are looking top 8, 4-6 I think 8-14th and 3 or less 14th and below. Big week for us. I think we'll take 6 myself
