Confidence Breeds Success

West Ham go into the Ipswich game tomorrow on a seven game unbeaten run in the league. Sam Allardyce, in his Manager on Monday post on the official West Ham website, says that the squad is now full of confidence,

"Results breed confidence such as going away to Doncaster and then drawing with Leeds and beating Forest with four goals and beating Watford by four.

"The players have built a very good dressing room very quickly, down to firstly the captain and then the rest of the players joining in and building a unity between them that's a good bond, so that they can communicate with each other on a day to day basis and enjoy their own company.

"And also enjoy criticising each other for the benefit of the team because it's no good seeing somebody doing wrong and saying nothing. That's not a good dressing room. If somebody's doing something wrong, you tell then and that's a good dressing room.

"I think that's what we're building and that's helped us get good results on the field."

Major test. bullard,bowyer,chopra,scotland,edwards- these guys can play,which will be the acid test of where we are. Ipswich's position in the table is too low.

Another thing to remember is that despite our decent position, we have played weaker teams. One could easily make the argument that with our talent and proven Manager, we should be on top. We dont look good offensively. I believe we will improve and wine the league, but not based on our opening games. Ipswich had a good win the other day and Bullard and Bowyer will be sky high.

cardiff, forestt, leeds and a millwall away game is not an easy start, and they are not easy games against lesser teams. I think we have grown in confidence lately, and personally think that we just need to work on the finishing and we will be ok. We are not going to win every game, however, if we dont start scoring, and taking our chances, then the league will be alot harder. We should have had at least 3 against Posh, but failed to put them away! lets just hope it was an off day, but I am looking forward to seeing Baldcock and coley up front together.... who Baldock replaces, i have no idea!!!!!!

Cole should be scoring goals for fun and he isn't and John Carew is a stocking of shite, new strikers needed in january if Cole doesn't improve I reckon.
