17th & 1 win in 17. No surprise. Marco Silva? Fixtures are horrific, so they might struggle getting anyone decent.

West Ham have five home games, three are winnable and their survival depends on those home games.  If the West Ham fans create a tense, angry atmosphere which causes nervousness amongst the players that would make relegation more likely.

Remaining Games
West Ham v Manchester United
West Ham v Southampton
Chelsea v West Ham
West Ham v Stoke
Arsenal v West Ham
West Ham v Manchester City
Leicester v West Ham
West Ham v Everton

The games in bold are winnable and critical to West Ham's survival especially as two of them are against direct relegation rivals.  

At the moment I still have WBA (certainties), Southampton, Stoke as favorites to go down followed by Crystal Palace and then West Ham, but there is not much in it (apart from WBA).  Southampton might get a bounce depending on who they bring in as new manager - they need to find a Carlos Carvalhal type manager - who transformed Swansea more or less over night.

Southampton far too many draws.

A league leading 13. Lost a many as eg Brighton who are 6 points better off.

Southampton sell their best players every year, was always going to end in tears

Went up to see Huddersfield today, in the driving snow.

They had plenty of possession, but looked tired, ineffectual and far from inventive. Palace soaked the pressure up brilliantly, had Benteke dominate the Town defence, and took their sparse chances. Great game plan from Roy Hodgson.

Worrying times for Huddersfield. Don't want to be playing bloody Plymouth next season.

Huddersfield seem to have trouble scoring. They're on a bit of a poor run at the moment and need some of their famed spirit. There is an international break next so all teams have a bit of time to recover injured players.

Looks like my Over 9.5 seats being ripped off their hinges at the London Stadium bet hasn't come in.

They're probably a couple of wins away from being sure. I wonder if Moyes stays on?

Probably rather he didn't. Bit too safety first.

Two wins and we're definitely safe (Stoke and Everton at home is where you'd target), but could get away with 4 points I reckon.

It wasn't just that we were good, Southampton were horrendous. They look dead. And Stoke, with Shaqiri saying that even a Ronaldinho couldn't save this side, are not showing the best attitude either.

Pards has finally gone.

Imagine it'll be a caretaker to years end while they find a manager for the championship.

WBA should have stuck with Gary Megson.  He was brought in as Assistant Head Coach to Tony Pulis in July 2017.  Then when Pullis was sacked was caretaker manager for two matches (drawing both games) and when Alan Pardew arrived he was let go.  WBA are all but relegated - so they will have to prepare for championship football next season.

Last season Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland were relegated.  Sunderland might be relegated again this season to Division One.  Hull look to be finishing in the lower reaches of the Championship.  While Middlesbrough are fighting for a play-off place (under the helm of Pullis).  WBA currently look to be in somewhat of a mess, so unless they sort themselves out they could be spending a long time outside of the Premiership.

I seem to recall in very recent years only Newcastle and Burnley bouncing back the following year - and both clubs kept their respective managers (Benitez and Dyche)

Sunderland and Hull are two very poorly ran clubs from the top down though. Not sure about the new owners but West Brom have generally been a well ran, stable club

In all seriousness, no one sensible wanted Megson after Pulis, and hindsight is 20/20. I thought Pards would get a short-term rise out of them, that's what he's good for. I don't think he's tactically astute or anything else that major, but he usually builds a rapport with his players initially and comes in with positivity. He found a squad that is complete unsuitable for his style of play, but that is because they let Pulis build a Pulis side and that has drawbacks.

Would Pulis have kept them up? Who cares, really? They'd have been stuck in that perpetual state of barely surviving in a league and expecting to be grateful for it, whilst never making a fist of a cup or trying to play good football.

Goalless first 45 minutes in the derby at Goodison.

I've never been very taken by Pickford in the past as too often when he parries a shot he fails to get the ball away from the danger area and generally seems to lack a commanding presence. However, to be fair, he's had a very decent first half with clean handling in difficult conditions and the odd good to extremely good save. Will it continue? I still fancy Liverpool to get one past him ....

.... Credit to Pickford for keeping a clean sheet throughout as a pretty ordinary game ends 0-0. He did though have some good fortune in being up against the endeavour and bustle of Ings rather than the skill and cutting edge of Salah.

Hope city thrash united fed up with the complete and utter incompetence united display.

Sanchez falls over, Valencia messes up a simple clearance, smalling lets kompany get goal side.

Love how Herrera has the ball under minimal pressure facing forward and ends up playing it back to de gea just before the second goal.

Can't win football matches if you refuse to do the right things.
