Sam Allardyce will be hoping to put a miserable weekend behind him as he takes his team to the Amex stadium tonight to face recently promoted Brighton.
Allardyce has spent the past 72 hours being slammed by supporters for considering signing El Hadji Diouf. Fortunately there'll be no sign of the former Sengalese striker at the AmEx tonight, where West Ham will be playing for the first time.
Live updates from the American Express Community Stadium (to give it its full name) will be provided throughout the evening on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=135793.
A number of live (and illegal so use at your own risk) streams are expected to be available; any feeds found will be listed in our streaming thread at www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=133293 (a number have been posted already).
KUMB.com will, as always, bringing you match summaries at both half time and the final whistle, with the thoughts of both managers to follow later this evening.
