Results today pretty much went our way, the Southampton-Man city result apart.
It was pretty weird that one, but seems to concur with Ian’s assessment that Manchester city are indeed a poor side.
Let’s hope we can get a result against them when we meet them on the 4th.
Whatever, the point of this post is that we quite simply need a win tomorrow.
West Ham are not brilliant in defence and I’d expect us to score at least one goal.
In fact, I wonder what the odds are for us to score two?
I might even have a dabble on that one.
But as we all know, the problem is in defence.
Which is where I might have a few bob on us conceding two goals too.
We all know Allardyce’s teams are set up for set pieces and a bruising type of game, which is a bit scarey, but I reckon we can hold out.
The bookies seem to have this one down as a hard fought low scoring draw, but I very much doubt that will be the outcome.
It just won’t be good enough for us and I suspect we’ll see Villa going for it.
Rightly so, because nothing less than a win will do.
A win that we’re going to get.
Of that I have no doubt and I actually expect a cracking game tomorrow.
