Feeling Pessimistic About West Ham
West Ham Till I Die and KUMB both have positive stories out today. Both websites seem impressed with West Ham's business during the January transfer window.
Keeping hold of Parker has obviously pleased everyone and in the signings of Keane and Bridge West Ham have secured two established Premier League players.
However to avoid relegation I think West Ham are going to have to win nearly half of their remaining 14 games. The last time West Ham were relegated we went down with 42 points and the way the league is panning out this year I think we will probably need around 42 points to stay up.
To win 7 games is going to be a massive undertaking (we have won 4 out of 24 so far). So despite the improved squad I'm still pretty pessimistic about our chances of avoiding relegation.
I admit it's been an OK transfer window for West Ham but the investment in established Premier League players should have been made in the summer.
