Ok, in an attempt to end the season unbeaten & with some pride going into the summer, I have started the match thread again following my efforts last week.
4 points from the last two would see us end with 50 points. So, really, victory here would be most welcome. A nice way to say thanks to the Hammers faithful & an opportunity to crown the newly renovated London Stadium with our first win...since the carpet changed.
Going to be hard changing the side, so I wouldn’t. Seems there are going to be a load of options on the bench. Lanzini, Cresswell, Nasri all back in contention. They seem to have spent the last few weeks dipping in & out of the contention zone, but Pelle insists they are now in it for good.
Saints have hit some scoring form, led in the main by 2012 transfer target Shane Long. The Irishman has quadrupled his entire goal tally over the past 23 years in the last fortnight.
Thoughts & pessimism to follow...
