    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.

    That's what I'm hoping but it'll probably be Lingard for Martial as Lingard is good at running...

    Would it be wrong to predict the match to end in another home draw?

    I think this is exactly the team we'll see. Maybe Blind for Darmian, but otherwise that looks spot on.

    Hope we can start with a bang. I have high hopes for this season.

    Martial won't start.

    Smalling did well, Lindelöf also but Bailly should come straight back into the side.

    What I hope we'll see:
    De Gea
    Valencia Bailly Lindelof Darmian
    Matic
    Pogba Mkhitaryan
    Rashford Lukaku Martial
    Expect to see Herrera in as the 3 man midfield though which is fine, but Martial is the one who will miss out which isn't what I want to see. Looking forward to getting things started though, we have a good opening run of fixtures so we need to get a good start and start off with a nice home win.

    Rashford or Martial to start please.

    Would actually like Rashford Lukaku Martial front 3 but seems like that's asking too much.

    I hope we only play with 2 central midfielders. Pogba and Matic and then have 3 attacking players. Mkhitariyan as number 10. Rashford and Martial/Mata on the wings.

    Think we should go and attack them!

    I wouldn't be surprised at a draw here, Lukaku to score on his Old Trafford debut and Chicharito to score on his return.

    Need a strong start to the campaign.

    De Gea
    Valencia - Bailly - Jones - Darmian
    Matic - Pogba - Herrera
    Mikhi - Lukaku - Rashford​

    We may drop Herrera and add another attacker as well. We're still having troubles creating constant chances with this formation.

    2-0 to us hopefully.

    Hmm, I can't say I'm impressed with that. United should be winning this comfortably.
    I'm the opposite, I think West Ham have done good business for a club of their size. This is far from an easy game

    Rather Mata or Rashford replace Mhki.

    I think this is not just about the 3 points, but also putting on a good show should be of equal importance. It's important to get the fans onside and generate that buzz around OT. It's all fresh so it's important we get off to a bright start.

    West Ham are no pushovers though and will make us work for any result.

    Valencia Bailly Smalling Mitchell
    Matic Pogba
    Rashford Mkhi Martial
    Lukaku

    Should be more than a match for West Ham. Doubt Jose would want to play Mitchell in a game he feels he must win, but the lack of anything from Darmian is frustrating.
