    West Ham United Football Club (nicknamed The Irons, The Hammers, and The Academy of Football) are a professional football club based in Upton Park, East London. They were founded in 1895 by foreman and local league referee Dave Taylor and owner Arnold Hills as Thames Ironworks F.C. - a strictly amateur football club with a team featuring a number of works employees. During the summer of 1898, Thames Ironworks F.C. became a professional outfit for the first time, to match their new status as members of the Southern League Second Division, and were promoted to the First Division at the first attempt following a decision to enlarge the top division of the Southern League to 19 teams. After growing disputes over the running and financing of the club in June 1900, Thames Ironworks F.C. resigned from the Southern League and were officially wound up. On 5 July 1900 they reformed under the new name of West Ham United and accepted an offer of the Southern League place left vacant by Thames Ironworks.

    West Ham's most successful period started with the appointment of Ron Greenwood in 1961 - leading to FA Cup, League Cup and Cup Winners' Cup titles - with youth team graduates Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters at the forefront. Their nickname The Academy of Football pays homage to the club's proud tradition in English football for playing entertaining, attacking football - and the success of the club in coaching future greats - which includes that aforementioned trio of World Cup winners, Trevor Brooking, Paul Ince, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Jermaine Defoe and Michael Carrick. West Ham's most prominent rivals are local clubs Millwall (Dockers derby - one of the longest-standing and most bitter in English football), Chelsea (East versus West London rivalry), and Tottenham Hotspur (East versus North London derby). They played their home games at the now demolished Boleyn Ground (often referred to as Upton Park) from 1904 to 2016, and moved to the London Olympic Stadium at the start of the 2016/ 2017 League season.

    We'll be wearing the pink, I assume. 100% record in that kit. That's about the only positive omen at the moment.

    Genuinely feel West Ham slap us 2nil.

    They had an awful start to the season and picked up a massive 3 points away at Everton and a nice organised performance against Chelsea.

    10% confidence at the moment.

    First United game I'll ever be seeing live. Excited. Despite us being poor, if Mou plays our best team with Pogba, and maybe drops Sanchez for Marttial I reckon we have a chance.

    The most important thing with this game is that Pogba is made captain to calm everyone down and convince everyone we don't have any problems atm.

    Emmm..

    Jose on Pogba: "I made the decision for Paul not to be the second captain anymore. There is no fallout or problems. As the manager, I can make these decisions."

    This will be tough, West Ham have started to get on their feet under Pellegrini and took a point of Chelsea at the weekend.

    I'd like to see the below line-up but it'll likely be Matic over Pereira or maybe Fred.

    De Gea, Dalot , Smalling, Bailly, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Fred, Pereira, Martial, Greenwood. Use Gomes and Rashford ad subs

    I guarantee that we were winning this one... I'm almost 100% sure of it in fact

    The cycle must continue.

    Chelsea had a very tough time there. Can anyone actually see us winning this? I sure can't, I don't feel confident about 3 points going up against any side in the league wether it's home or away. It's most likely going to be another miserable game to watch.

    Mou will go senior player heavy for this one - we re probably squeeze out a victory somehow and we re back to thinking we re going to win it all this season. Except for the Caribbean Cup I guess.

    My prediction is we'll win this and we all will start believing again that things are getting better. Threads like "we'll go on a run..." and "blessing in disguise" will pop up.

    Incredibly difficult to call. All the media will care about is if Pogba is in the squad, but I suppose this will finally put to bed the whole situation. If he starts then perhaps it's all bollocks, if not then you'd have to think he's leaving.

    de Gea
    Valencia Smalling Lindelof Shaw
    Fred Fellaini Matic
    Rashford Lukaku Martial
    ---
    Grant; Young, Bailly; Herrera, Mata, Lingard; Sanchez​

    Not a chance in hell. West Ham are hitting form and we're looking like a midtable Championship team.

    0-0 or a 1-0 loss.

    We will heroically snatch a draw from the jaws of defeat to maintain our amazing unbeaten run to midtable.

    The season is a right off already. I'd honestly take a loss if it meant replacing Jose the week after.

    At least then a new manager could bed in their ideas/tactics for a full season.

    We'll win this. I expect the following:

    De Gea

    Valencia
    Smalling
    Lindelof
    Shaw

    Matic
    Fellaini
    Pogba

    Lingard
    Lukaku
    Sanchez

    We will need Fellaini to play the screening role and compete physically with Arnautović. I expect Sanchez to continue stinking up the place but can see a 0:1 or 0:2 win to us.
