This will be a tough game given West Ham have played well lately against non big 6 teams. I'll take a draw but both teams seem evenly matched so anything can happen.

Just need to keep Olson preparing to come on as sub to scare the sh!te out of Carrol. Win here would be amazing though!

Will take a draw. A win would be amazing. I see WHU and Stoke as our rivals for 8th.

This will be a tough game, would take a draw to keep the points total ticking along. Carroll in good form, hope we can keep him quiet.

It's similar to the Stoke game in that win, lose or draw we will still be 8th come 5pm, so in that respect the players can be more relaxed about the outcome.
I'd be more concerned if it was at the Hawthorns to be honest as West Ham have been poor at home.

Can see us taking all 3 points. We are starting to put some of the missing pieces in place that will turn us into a genuine top 8 team.
Stop them putting  crosses into the box will be the winning factor in the game.

Looks like the lanky, pony tailed, didicoy has a groin strain and is only rated 75% for this one.

If he doesn't play, we win IMO. (I fancy us if he plays TBH)

read this on the Wet Spam kumb forum - it made me chuckle anyway in reference to their big ratepayers stadium pitch:-
 
"big pitch might help us out here.

god help us if they go 1-0 up though. pulis frothing at the mouth at the opportunities to punt the ball out of touch and not see it for another ten minutes."

We are on a roll.
We can win.
Forget the negativity.

This is what TP should be saying.
Too true as well.

Unfortunately I can't see us winning this one.

Expecting/hoping for a 1-1 but could easily see a defeat, we don't seem to have quite clicked yet away on the whole.

I think we will beat them.
We will go there with a confidence and will play with a swagger,we have very good footballers in our squad and I think that why are lightweight and not mentally strong.
I take our defence to control Carroll,he doesn't take to being pushed around and goes missing when bullied.
We will enjoy the new wide pitch with our widemen running at them with control and pace,im going for 0-2. Ronnie and Chad,no real worries they're not a good team,have faith in tone.

To be fair, I also read a few posts on their forum where they were quite complimentary. Stating that we were going to be a real test for them

You could take the quick train from St Pancras station (next door to King's Cross) to Stratford International station, which is also in the Olympic Park.
The high speed trains are big and spacious, just use a contactless card to get through the ticket gates.
