Fridays nights game

What are our chances realistically, unless we up our game we could be lookin at a drumming our lack of a threat up front might be our undoing, we'll be lucky to get 0-0 ,i'd love it to be us that puts the final nail in their coffin ,be like winning the cup

we can't score. best we can hope for is 1-0 to us….they score an own goal.

Can't see another 0-0 draw, as has been said we offer very little threat upfront. My initial thoughts are that we will get easily beaten. It just there is some unnerving feeling that they have got to lose sometime. They won't fear us at all and that may give us what we need, as long as we stay as solid as we have the last 2 games. Team should be the same as what started the last 2 bar calleri. If bilic puts cresswell, noble, snodgrass and feghouli in from the start, then I expect to lose easily. We have been tougher to get thro and we need to keep that to have a chance of even 1 point.

you've always had this thing about him having to be a CB. the proof however has been his great recent performances in midfield. offers a lot more going forward than noble does.

Because he is a center back. 'His recent great performances' Was our worst player against everton and has been one of our worst players all season.

I heard gold thinks Carroll will miss Friday's game., as it's come too soon! About 48 months too soon!

Disappointing season again for Andy, especially as the injuries seem so minor initially. Who else is out for so long with pulls and strains? The board need to be very smart with their purchases in the summer as without European football and playing like we're a million miles away from that we're not going to attract the best. Lacazette has already stated he must have CL football next season and the players we're linked with like Sturridge seem to be more about keeping Carroll company in the treatment room rather than giving us the goals we so desperately need! Defoe would be a good addition, but we need the scouts to have done an outstanding job to ensure he gets adequate backup. The creativity is also a must in midfield and the sums spent on Snodgrass and Ayew look like great business - for Hull and Swansea! Smart money needs to be spent otherwise many predictions that will likely state us as a relegation favourite could well come true!

When it matters, we usually beat Spurs. remember Lasagnagate 2-1 last season 1-0. So I think that we will win on Friday maybe 2-1 and put an end to Spurs title dreams.

It's one thing to play Stoke and hold them (I mean, was Berahino really going to score?). It's another to hold Tottenham. We have been absolutely miserable against top teams all season, and I don't expect it to change Friday. That said, I don't think we'll be played off the pitch. West Ham will put in a solid effort, I think, but still lose 2-0.

Why do you support West Ham? We are not the best, never have been but they are our club. We are not going to win the Premiership but each season we just find the odd result and Friday COULD be that odd result. The easy option is for me to stay at home on Friday and watch it on the box, I dont need the hassle of a 2 hour journey to Stratford, I dont need the expensive beer in the Bat n Ball and I sure dont need the p*** take from the Spudz on the way home BUT... maybe, just maybe we might get that odd result and oh boy what a night that will be that my glorious hammers nail the coffin that stops the Spudz from winning the title... KEEP THE FAITH!!!!

From Pardew to Curbishley to Zola to Grant to Allardyce to Bilic. I've seen times when West Ham had far less talent than they have now when I thought on the day they might beat anyone. But this season is different, and really has been different since the European qualifier fiasco at the start. There just is no TEAM (in my opinion). I'd love to see them go out and graft and maybe nick a point or all three from Tottenham, but I just can't see it happening with the morale, motivation, tactics and personnel we have right now. So I'm not being a fair-weather supporter. I love West Ham and always will. I'm just being honest about this match and this team. I don't even hate 'em -- I'd love to see Bilic be successful. I'd love to see the team win. But this season, with this team, I just don't see it.

Lovely post Ashes, from the heart! Totally agree this season has been very different and it just feels like we need to fall over the line and stay in the Prem starting a new season, yet again, with optimism :o)

And you see, you were right! I should have kept the faith. What an incredible victory. The sign in the Black Lion says, "Take Courage" -- I'll try to do that more often now. ;)

Dartford Bhoy said it all, I'll keep the faith, I'll put me football bet on and I'll be on my own in my local with my colours with about 1/2 dozen Spuds taking the piss for most of the night. The team's on form and I just hope we can upset there run with Chelski, even though I'm still not looking forward to the game .....COYI's

Ashes is right this year hasn't been a year we can live in hope. We have also been so far away from ALL the big boys there is nothing whatsoever to suggest we will take anything from Spurs and Liverpool. Having said that, lots of things are typical West Ham and one is that we will upset the applecart when things are bleak. It's also typical West Ham that the fans won't make it easy for Spurs. I'm not predicting a win but it would be so West Ham to do it with someone like nortveldt to score the winner.

Dartford, coming from a little village in Bedfordshire I had no local teem, watch them play in 65 and been a supporter since, through the good and bad (not much good). always supported the underdogs. This season has been a fiasco which seem to start at Watford when we were 2 up. I will be watching on Friday and as you say I dont need the agony, and believe me it will be agony with a capital A.

La Vida we are West Ham, as my son says (27 years old) he supported them through thin and thin! You are right about the Watford game, I remember high fiving the guy that sits behind me in the TB stand when we went 2 up thinking this was the turning point of our season, how wrong was that! I think that loss was much worse than the drubbing by Arse and Manc City.

I think if we're to get anything out of this it will come through pressure by keeping them out, they need to win a draw is a loss to them. Late on they may just make a mistake (which has been us on so many occasions this season) that we can capitalise on. Other than that we won't be able to build pressure because of a lack of options up front, well no options really.
