How do you manage to get onto this site without access to the internet  ;) ?

When I was working in the area, one night I had to walk for a mile and a half just to get a sandwich, it really is a strange part of London.

It'd probably be quicker to walk.

I can appreciate your dislike of public transport, especially in London.

But:

1. It's approx' 6.5 miles from Camden High St to the City of London stadium
2. Saturdays weather forecast does not match that of a nice sunny day
3. You'd probably have to leave Camden at about 12:30hrs-13:00hrs to make kick off

Obviously your choice though, all of the best with whatever you decide  :) ......

Don't know how quick you walk mate but I've been told its about 20-25 minute walk

Google maps says 8 mins
The TFL leaflet attached below says 11 mins.

There will plenty of folks to follow, so doubt you could get lost.
Anyway up, enjoy and bring 3 points back please

Imagine this on Saturday Spam win the reporters will say Hammers on push for Europe we win the reporters will say Albion 3 points closer to safety yet we will still be 2 points in front of them hammers. So let`s go there and show the cockney supporters why we are above them and win

We could really cement our league position with a win. Everton have Middlesbrough away which isn't the easiest of places to get a result. Both Burnley and Watford have tough games where you wouldn't expect them to pick up 3 points. Stoke have Palace at home. If Stoke and us win it leaves us 7 points ahead of 9th

I can't see any reporter going with Albion closer to safety as a headline. We are almost safe anyway

Not overly confident about this one to be honest, I think they seem to have come together as a team after Payet was dropped and then sold. I'm not ruling us out by any means but I would be delighted with a point going into the game.

Lived in East London for twelve years, for those of you planning to drink in the west and then head to Stratford check the transport for London website site carefully. 1. London transport is good when it works but can go down quite quickly and you may need a plan B  2. It takes a surprisingly long time to get from North/West London to Stratford, particularly if you are cabbing it or far from a tube station.  My suggestion might be to pick somewhere like Leytonstone, a couple of stops down the central line (red one on your map) and drink there.  There is a good Weatherspoons and a couple of good real ale pubs on the high street and it is only ten mins back to Stratford.  Looking forward to this one, think it will be close with West Ham in good form as are we.

Let's hope for a far different performance than we put in on that day. I am still seething about it now.

also Cresswell and kouyate are doubtful, good news for us that Evans and Yacob available for selection. problem is do we play them or stick with the team that beat Stoke.
