West Ham really need to pull themselves together before they find themselves back in the relegation scrap that many of the punters here at the Transfer Tavern feared for them earlier in the season.
This weekend they face a tough Swansea City team who themselves are trying to steer away from the drop zone, and will see this fixture as a six pointer.
A defeat for the Hammers would see them very much in an area of concern alongside their opponents. The Irons, though, can be victorious in this fixture if they get their team selection right. However, what doesn’t help Slaven Bilic and his cause is the amount of players they currently have on the treatment table – some very key men – with the likes of Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid being the most notable.
It’s easy to make excuses but we know that with the type of man that Slaven Bilic is, that he will not let that be used and will fight for victory no matter what. This mentality has really helped the Croatian manager gain the backing of the owners and indeed the punters here at the bar which led to the chairmen stating they give him their full backing confidence earlier this week, as reported by whufc.com.
With the support of everyone at the club it is now important that they push on and if Bilic picks this XI then the Hammers will demolish the Swans for sure…
