If we can’t manage to beat Southampton then we’re as good as down. It’s that simple.

And when Moyes runs up the white flag again on monday just how does he think he’s going to re-motivate a demoralised squad a few days later.
The mans a fucking moron

Joe Cole is right but he did bugger off to Chelsea!!! The problem is there are "characters" at the Club but they are too old and slow. The likes of Noble, Cresswell and Snodgrass have the right attitude along with Rice obviously but you can see that the confidence is draining out of them with regard to others not trying probably. To be fair I'd put Ogbonna and Fabianski in the above group. I think Oggy is actually a good pro and has bad games but I've never seen him not try.

I can actually see that happening.

West Ham United Football Club is rotten to the core.

Good. Hope we end up in L2 and fold and then start again properly in non league

Totally agree Jaan, we're going to do a Coventry.

Can't see us coming back from relegation. The club is absolutely rotten. More likely to end up third tier than come straight back up.

Interesting from Cole, was listening to some of the new Peter Crouch podcast earlier and they read out an email from a West Ham fan saying he'd seen Yossi Bennayoun at a bowling ally and asked him if we would win at Bolton that weekend "no" was the reply he got.

We're shit and we're going down.

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
I think it’ll be 40+ this year yeah,

It will be lower.

Only time it's ever been above 40 points (20 team league), was when we went down with 42, when West Brom and Sunderland, only got 45 points between them.

Will be higher than the last three years, when 34 points, 33 points and 34 points and a better goal difference would have kept a team up.

Spread betting firms offering 36.5 to 38 points for 18th place, which feels about right.

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
Interesting discussion, this, involving Joe Cole. Again, he makes some surprisingly astute comments about the kind of players that West Ham have tended to sign down the years.

The point he makes at 6.12 is particularly pertinent.

"Certainly types of players sign for a club in London - and they [feel] they can have a six-month holiday in London, a year's holiday. They don't commit to the club - and I'm going on a bit of a rant here, because I've seen it happen during my time there [at West Ham] . They down tools and they are enjoying their time in London on a Tuesday night in a lovely wine bar. They know they are getting paid their wages no matter what. You talk about "characters" - West Ham need to get the right characters in."

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
I think it’ll be 40+ this year yeah, I think the league is so piss poor that a couple of teams down there will have decent runs. I think I saw Noble say before the Brighton game he thinks we need to win 5 to have enough, maybe that and a draw will do. But seeing people saying 3 wins and some draws I can’t see that being nowhere near enough.

You think 42 points would be just enough to 'give us a chance'?

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
Talksport's "famous supercomputer" (me neither) has been crunching the numbers again!

20. Norwich (relegated)

19. Aston Villa (relegated)

18. Bournemouth (relegated)

17. West Ham

16. Watford

15. Brighton

14. Newcastle

So, that's all right then. I particularly like the detailed methodology.

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
15 points won’t be enough, think we need to win 6 games to even have a chance.

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
City haven’t scored in their last two games from about 40 shots ! You know the rest of the story !!!

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
We need to be in the hunt after the next two defeats and when we play Southampton. Lose that and it’s all over.

If we win that however and then our other home games against Watford, Burnley, Villa and get something (draws) out of Wolves Home and Norwich away we’d have 15 points. Assuming also we lose the others.

It may be enough but we could also be dependent on others doing poorer than us and right now they are not.

Re: 2019/20 Relegation thread
We are more likely to go down than stay up is how I see it ( albeit I see "black" even on a sunny day).

Moyes was not the answer although I would say he has not made us worse than under Pellegrini. We are basically where we were. Too slow, injury prone, reliant on indivduals.

I still hold on to my obsession that its midfield where we needed to strengthen more than anywhere else. 2 or 3 quality players for the central spots that are the engine of the team. Nobes is gifted technical footballer but his lack of pace he has always had is a huge problem now but worse still he cannot play 3 games in 6 days at almost 33.

We are down barring some miraculous run of results starting with the next few games where we have to get a few draws or an unexpected win. But I cant see it happening. We needed to bring in 4 or 5 quality players to address the problems.

Maybe Anderson returning and Bowen being able to score / be a force at the highest level might surprise me yet but the odds are truly stacked against us.
