Ok so this is it folks.
Final game. Game 38. Penultimate game of next season. The finish. Finale. End of the road.
Avoid defeat & we finish with the half century. A victory will see us 10th. 9th is possible with a win & a Leicester defeat.
Defeat, however, coupled with a loss for Bournemouth sees Ham’s worst fears come to fruition. Nobody wants that. Although I am sure one or two will claim clown karma.
Watford seem to have hit the buffer. All eyes on the cup final. So no reason to not go all out for the 3 points.
Predictions & tactical insight to follow...
Do we go for the win, full strength?
Do we give fringe players a chance to impress ahead of the close season?
Do Anderson & Rice come back in?
