Usually I like to have a little bit of a joke with my predictions on a match thread, have a bit of fun. But I'm afraid I'm just feeling very negative and deflated about everything West Ham related at the moment, here's my honest opinion.

I think we will get played off the park at times. We'll sit back deep and let Leicester have the ball, then cheaply give away possession when we have it. We'll create nothing from set pieces, won't beat the first man once and will almost concede from a counter attack on a couple of occasions. Joe Hart will make a couple of excellent saves but we'll be 2-0 down at half time after his 5th and 6th 1 on 1. We'll create a couple of chances in the second half but end up losing 3-1.

Moyes will come out after the game and say something like "If we play like that we're going down, we have no togetherness and no confident. I can't believe how badly we pass the ball and we have to be much better at both ends of the pitch."

Sorry, I don't want us to do this badly. I want us to perform well & pick up points, but I'm struggling to see anything positive at the moment.

Hope I'm proven wrong.

Before and after match protests I can understand but vocal protests during the game, especially when it's 0-0 or a tight game is inexcusable. That's just kicking our own when we are down.

How good would it be if we all sung one of our players name from the off like lanzini, Antonio etc (anyone you like) even though they may not deserve it. Be brilliant and I'm sure they'd be buzzing. That's true support! It's only 12 games in so we aren't exactly down and out but I just hope our own fans don't contribute to potential relegation.

I start by accepting 'hands up' that I don't go to games anymore, so perhaps what follows needs reading with that in mind.

I'd say that whenever we gave pelters to an opposing player (Terry, Lampard etc), they always seemed to raise their games, not shrink away from it all.

Expanding that, if our support is miserable, do all opposing players take that as a little lift to their efforts?

Is it, in effect, anti-support, even if the reasons behind protest are perfectly understandable (as they are to me)?

“Andy Andy, you’re the best, punch their player in the chest” that sort of song?

It should be aimed at the board from the 1st to the 90th minute. They need to go.

12 against 11 - nice idea if you think we'll get away with it.
Probably still struggle with those odds

1-8 (inc one for Schmeichel playing rush goalie)

Moyes sacked and D.Sullivan to take over as player manager until xmas when they appoint Stuart Pearce full time as he's ex west ham, former manager with PL experience and most importantly cheap.

1-1 draw

Both Teams scrapping for points down the bottom and can see us getting a result at least. A result we can hopefully build on. No excuses.

Decision made I will go still with blind faith that we must get better. Not sure we can get any worse, famous last words.
Worried how we handle them on the break. We seem at our weakest on attacking corners which is bizarre.
A draw likely at best but hey ho will go for a 2-1 win in the belief that Moyes and co have worked their magic this week. As to a line up honestly no idea ( I'm not David Moyes honest).
An excuse to finish work early and enjoy a quiet M25 M23 home. Rock and roll.

Quoted from the Carroll thread...

DDHammer wrote:Our top 5 (passers) - Masuaku 91%, Rice 86%, Reid 86%, Lanzini 86%, Noble 84%.


So our best two passers aren't in the first team. Typical.

Considering that actually keeping the ball is one of our major weaknesses, and stupidly losing the ball has got us into so much trouble time and time again, I'd be looking at including these two in the team for the next match.

Masuaku, Noble, Lanzini, Rice, Arnie should hopefully help us hold on to the ball a little better. Having Lanzini in the centre, Ayew up front instead of Carroll, and Masuaku attacking down the left should hopefully improve movement when attacking.

--------------------------Hart

------------Kouyate---Reid---Ogbonna------

Zabaleta--------------Rice------------Masuaku

-------------Arnie-----Lanzini-----Noble

-------------------------Ayew

Fernandes to come on instead of whoever is struggling the most out of Noble and Arnie. Noble is actually quite useful in and around the box, and capable of putting in a good delivery. I would try him in a more advanced role.

I can guarantee you that we'll line up absolutely nothing like this :)

I haven't received the club email so I'm guessing that Ticket Exchange isn't active for this one yet? I think it only becomes active when all tickets the club still holds are sold.

If you know someone that wants it or can sell it on the matchday ticket forum here, you could use Ticket Forwarding instead - might be an option ?
