New Year's Day football
Wakey, wakey, rise and shine. It’s a new year and a new West Ham. Or is it just a new year? Either way, may you and the club we all support navigate the coming waters safely, happily and healthily.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs CHELSEA (1230 ko)
A seasonal blip has affected Chelsea while Brighton have been showing the spirit of Albion and, arguably, are punching above their weight. An intriguing one to get 2020 under way, but Chelsea should be too strong. Frank may be in for some earache if they’re not. Away win.

BURNLEY vs ASTON VILLA (1230 ko)
The other claret and blues meet in a game that could send us into the bottom three. Unlikely, though, because Villa have bene useless in consecutive defeats and Burnley will be in no mood to extend their own recent miserable run. Home win.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs LEICESTER CITY
Leicester won’t be sending out their reserves to battle the Barcodes on their home patch. But this could be a good game if the Geordie fans really get behind their team today. Draw.

SOUTHAMPTON vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
The Saints have been impressive in their march up the table and will fancy themselves to get something from the travelling Spurs. Jose’s a wily old coot, though, and won’t want to give up more ground in the race for fifth. Away win.

WATFORD vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
It wasn’t so long ago (but a lifetime in footballing terms) that Wolves were languishing in Watford territory. The Hornets have done much to change that territory for themselves and a win today will see them level on points with us. Nigel Pearson is cementing a reputation as company doctor for teams in relegation trouble. Draw.

MANCHESTER CITY vs EVERTON (1730 ko)
The respective managers have been exchanging verbal kisses in recent days and Everton, a team high on confidence, could cause problems for Pep’s people. Hard fought with moments of inspired skill. Home win.

NORWICH CITY vs CRYSTAL PALACE (1730 ko)
There is a sense of general acceptance among those not of the green and yellow persuasion that Norwich will be relegated. But Norwich are still playing some good football and come up against a team that’s well-disciplined and, like eagles and canaries, flying far higher than their hosts. And yet. Draw.

WEST HAM UNITED vs BOURNEMOUTH (1730 ko)
Will there be a grand start to the second Moyes era? There had better be. Eddie Howe could have been speaking the words of a new West Ham manager when he said that his side was looking for a change of luck. So, two sides that started the season well but are now encamped in the division’s nether region and lacking confidence. Our record against the Cherries is ripe for improvement and a much-awaited win today would, at least for the moment, put a clamp on the tongues of our dear club’s more disaffected supporters. Home win.

ARSENAL vs MANCHESTER UNITED (2000 ko)
Arsenal in 12th and Man U in 5th. Who’d have thought that possible in the heyday of the Wenger-Fergie rivalry? Pogba could return for the visitors, but this remains a game of two fallen aristocrats of the English game and of two very fragile sides. That could make a nervous, mistake-ridden encounter or an open, attacking game of football. Tune in to find out. Draw.

Re: New Year's Day football
Moyes has indeed taken us into the bottom 3,for the first time this season!!!
Rubbish Moyes out !!
And they sacked Pellegrini just as he started to get a run of consistent results. 9 losses admittedly but consistent nonetheless

Re: New Year's Day football
If Moyesinho is bottom 3 New Year's Day, does it trigger his sacking? Cheers.

Re: New Year's Day football
One way or another reckon this will be Dyche’s last season there.
He’s gone stale and taken them as far as he ever is going to.
And Burnley fans will start kicking up a bit like Charlton fans with Curbishley.
Will probably end the same way with Burnley plummeting

Re: New Year's Day football
VAR is demanded by the media to create more controversy, therefore more attention and by implication more advertising reach - fuck all to actually do with (improving) the game itself.

Dyche could be the next one getting his P45

Who is that fucking awful woman covering the Burnley game?

Sven Roeder 2:46 Wed Jan 1
Re: New Year's Day football
Havent seen it but under the current regime of VAR offside is offside.
Even if its by a millimetre via their dodgy looking crayon lines that I dont believe.
Expect that is something that will change next season

Pagey 2:44 Wed Jan 1
Re: New Year's Day football
It’s got to be scrapped as soon as possible. Football is meant to be entertaining with as many goals as possible, not ruling loads out for shit like that! It was farcical!

If something is obvious then maybe it could work, but as soon as the coloured lines have to come out then just let it be.

What a fucking joke VAR referees are!! That is appalling (great for us though!) absolutely no appeals from Burnley at all!

VAR strikes again, Villa back to 0-0. The back of the blokes heel was offside.
