I actually think we will make it three on the spin. 2-1 to the Hammers. :thup: We're beginning to look like a proper team.

If we have serious ambitions we need to continue beating teams like this, like we have last two weeks, going forward we should have too much for them,

We've got to hammer Neil Taylor, don't know how he is in this division

Same starting XI for me. Wrap them in a bit of cotton wool and train sensibly over the fortnight.

As much as I thought he’d be on the bench mostly this season, I think Noble has made a big difference since being back.

Hopefully an early goal by us to settle their crowd down. Confident, but obviously wary that our away form last season, and form in general against poor teams where you'd expect us to win, isn't great. Still, **** all that negativity, 3-1 away win :scarfer:

Yep! Instead of the 'wounded animal, they'll fight back' cliche I'll offer the 'we're looking good and it's all coming together' cliche. 'Cept it really looks that way. Another win on the road COYI

This is one of our most important games of the season for me, I despise Aston Villa and would like them to go straight down which is especially important because they got very rich owners who mean business like we saw in the summer transfer window.

3 points please West Ham !!! :crest: :clap: :scarfer:

Fond memories of Villa Park, Holte End is a beautiful old stand. We've a decent record up there and I am confident we can keep that up with a 2-1 away win.

I presume you're all aware of what normally happens when everyone predicts a comfortable west ham win on the match thread?

Snodgrass goes mental and eats Pellegrinis hair in a mental tribal ritual?

Tough away game after the break but we have a couple of extra days to prepare as do villa. apart from city villa are a step up on what we have played so far. That Wesley bloke looks good and is built like a £$%^ house! diop needs to be on his game for this one.

as usual we need to start well and quicker than the first 15 against Norwich.

fabianski
fredericks diop ogbonna masuaka
noble rice lanzini
yarmolenko haller Anderson

subs Roberto Johnson Balbuena wilshere fornals Snodgrass ajeti

2-0 hammers haller x 2
