Saturday football
There was a time when older West Ham players prepared for retirement with a spell at Orient. The orient retains the capacity to attract, it seems – albeit for different reasons – and as many concerned eyes focus on Marco Arnautovic’s future they risk overlooking the firepower still in the claret and blue ranks. Samir Nasri made a promising start to life at West Ham and his influence, along with that of Felipe Anderson, could be just what our forwards need to consummate home advantage. We’ve shown that we’re up for the big games – Man U and Chelsea demonstrate that – and today should be an opportunity to gain a second home win of the century in this fixture and climb towards seventh spot. It’s all set up for a cracking game of football. Home win.

Brighton have never beaten Liverpool at home in the Premier League. Their more optimistic fans may believe they can change that against a side that has stuttered of late. The more realistic will understand that the Reds are league leaders for a reason. The Seagulls will put up a fight, because they always do, but class will emerge triumphant. Away win.

Not one that automatically gets the anticipatory juices flowing, but Burnley look to have turned a corner and will look to this as a perfect opportunity to build on their escape from the drop zone. Fulham have demonstrated recently that there is still life in their club, but would be very satisfied with a point. Footballing purists should look away. Home win.

The second of the day’s genuine relegation six-pointers. There’s a sense of the inevitable about the Terriers this season. They’ve already exceeded expectations by staying up last season. Survival this year will be one expectation too far. Boring home win.

Watford are still flying, while Palace have climbed out of the bottom three and have the luxury of sitting atop the mini-league concerned with relegation. Form and home advantage will be key here, but the visitors are always capable of a disturbance. If Palace can keep a clean sheet, Wayne Hennessey will want to salute his defensive ranks. Draw.

Claude Puel hosts his former employers on the back of an FA Cup defeat to Newport County. Southampton have shown the spirit of the re-born since the arrival of their new manager, but go into this game with a severely depleted first team. It won’t be easy for the visitors, particularly on a day when their relegation rivals could all add points to their escape plans. Home win.

The early headline writers have plenty of fodder in the backgrounds of the two managers. There is less to say about Newcastle’s prospects in this game. The barcodes have key players out injured and will be forgiven for adopting a disaster mitigation approach today. Chelsea fans will doubtless offer their traditional welcome to Rafa Benitez, but may leave wondering where their goals will come from in the rest of the season. Gone to China, perhaps? Home win.

Re: Saturday football
I still cannot fathom why the Arabs went for Man City. Maybe it was the free new stadium? They've got a good core fanbase, but never gonna be the sort of team that gets a 'big' following, especially when the biggest English team is in the same city.

If we had that team, and that manager, we could sell out 80k every week. Easy.

Another of those would be nice.

We get a look at the famous Dendocker again at centre back.

Re: Saturday football
Interesting stat there.

Even with our early struggles we are second in the league (7 points) in taking points off the top 6 (excluding the top 6).

Re: Saturday football
It was miles away from the ball.
Bollocks to say he was stepping over it to protect it.
Went over it to do him.

It was dangerous and reckless and an obvious red to me.
