Many punters here at the Transfer Tavern are all in dispute over whether West Ham could achieve an unbelievable feat, and finish in the Champions League positions this season.
The Hammers currently sit fifth in the table, one point behind Manchester United, having achieved some incredible results already this season.
Most notably, away victories against Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as a great home victory against Champions, Chelsea.
However, in spite of this, West Ham have spoiled some of this great work by losing games which would appear far more winnable than the ones above.
Indeed, disappointing home losses to Bournemouth and Leicester, as well as draws to relegation candidates Norwich and Sunderland, means that their wins against the big teams ultimately could count for nothing if they do not turn this confusing form around.
Last weekend, the Hammers suffered another set back after being defeated 2-0 by newly promoted Watford, a team who have of course impressed many this season.
Nevertheless, if West Ham are going to achieve their dream of playing in the Champions League, they really will have to start winning those sort of games.
Below are FIVE ideal signings who could provide a solution to the problem, and in turn bolster their European chances.
