Where could we finish?
Half way through the season at 32 points. If we match the first half and finish on 64 that would have been enough for Champions League football last season ( finish would be fifth).

Where can West Ham hope to end the season?

Re: Where could we finish?
Hardest league in the world but it is a very interesting season. I think one of the chasing pack will upset the top four. The key thing is we have a team that will battle for points. So I think we will continue to progress. Just nice to be up there and feel like we deserve to be

Re: Where could we finish?
The board can't afford a 5th or 6th place finish as they'd be expected to deliver the same or better next season.

I suspect they've got a gentleman's agreement with Moyes for a 12th or 13th placement. That gives them a leeway of 8th to 16th next season.

Re: Where could we finish?
Five years ago, people would have said that Leicester would run out of puff and be swallowed up by the big guns. I love Moyes' attitude; he is promoting exactly the mindset that we need from the players.

Of course, a top seven / eight / nine finish would represent huge progress, but why not aim as high as we can in these strange times. Nobody will ever convince me that 2015-16 was not a missed opportunity to qualify for the Champions' League; similarly, had we beaten Man United in that year's FA Cup QF, I firmly believe that we'd have gone on to win it.

Let's make new memories on both fronts this season!

Re: Where could we finish?
Yes, obviously it all depends on injuries. But looking at it this way -

There's no way we're going to finish above:
Liverpool
Man City
Tottenham
Man Utd

We would have to do exceedingly well to finish above:
Chelsea
Leicester

Which leaves us scrapping with the likes of:
Arsenal (currently 5 points ahead of them)
Everton (wouldn't it be good to finish above those c*nts!)
Southampton (can't see them staying where they are now)
Villa (currently 6 points behind but 4 games in hand).

So to sum it up, 5th or 6th would be absolutely exceptional. 7th to 10th is definitely achievable, most likely 8th behind Arsenal or 9th behind Everton.

Re: Where could we finish?
Even though we are 7 points off top, I'll be happy to speculate when we have 40 points on the board

Yep.
A POSITIVE goal difference would also be a bonus.

Re: Where could we finish?
Lets not get too excited. An injury to Soucek, Ogbonna or another one for Antonio and we're going to fucking plummet.

Next level (up or down, unspecified)

Promise delivered.

Brando

Isn't the mean a single figure not a range?

Current position seems too good to be true and would require investment to maintain never mind improve upon
11th for me.

BRANDED 3:29 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
I think we’ll regress your the mean. 7th to 12th.

Rossal 3:26 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
depends on injuries.....fully fit squad then best of the rest in 7th. Finishing above Everton Villa Chelsea and Arsenal would be very impressive

few injuries and 10-12th

Re: Where could we finish?

My thoughts exactly... 60 points should be the target

Westside 3:20 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
With the uneven distribution of matches played, a little harder to determine our current true position, by just looking at the league table.

Everybody above us, bar Leicester have games in hand on us. Below us Southampton and Villa (4 in Villa's case). Also Arsenal below us, have hit form.

8th - 10th finish.

Mind you, I predicted 19th, before a ball was kicked.

Mr Kenzo 2:57 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
I think the season and the amount of games being played in a shorter period of time will take its toll on our squad. If our owners sanctioned a few signings i would be more optimistic. End of Feb and March fixtures are going to be tough, i reckon 8th place finish which is great progress from last season.

Come On You Irons 2:56 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
I'd like us to reach 60 points this season, but it won't be easy. Surpassing our Premier League points record of 64 would be an unbelievable season.

At this stage I think we will get between 55-60 points and will finish 7th-11th.

Top half should be a minimal target from here.

pdbis 2:52 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
Anything is possible at this stage of the season. What will happen is hard to guess due to this being West Ham.

Re: Where could we finish?
20 points might be a bit harsh 😄

Fifth Column 12:24 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
If we had a decent squad to cover for injuries we could be top 6. But there's no way rice soucek antonio Cresswell are all going to be fit all season. We don't have cover for them and when we pick up injuries we'll struggle.

Plus a twenty point penalty for the snodgrass fiasco tonight

Jasnik 12:21 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
Not top , not bottom so somewhere in between

twoleftfeet 12:10 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
I won’t relax until we get to that magic 37 points. This is West Ham, anything could happen?

bruuuno 12:08 Wed Jan 20
Re: Where could we finish?
With the beast - 6th
Without him - 10th
