It's Make or Break Time
A win today and we still have a chance of staying up, lose and we are as good as down.
I haven't bothered looking at Lawro's predictions for a while but he actually has us down for a 2-1 win today. His prediction actually looks a bit perverse, as he praises Blackburn's performance last week and more or less writes off West Ham as a football team.
Blackburn's win last week was their first since January, so on paper this looks like West Ham's easiest game for a while. However for West Ham too much rests on the fitness of Scott Parker.
It really is a sad predicament that so much rests on one player. If Parker plays I think we are odds on today, if Parker is unavailable I think it is 50/50. It is time for the rest of the West Ham team (and yes we are looking at you Matthew Upson) to man up and take some pride in the shirts on their backs.
This really is make or break time. If we go behind today Avram has to finally go for broke and get the team to go all out in attack. I wish I believed he had it in him to spur the team on against all odds.
On a more positive note Blackburn are the only Premier League team yet to come from behind to win this season. It therefore looks like the first goal is all important today. I find it hard to believe that either Blackburn or West Ham will be able to get three points if they concede first. So West Ham really have to come out of the blocks running today .
Come on you Irons!
(and yes @anonymous I know I'm an effing bunt and that it is my fault we sold Zamora).
