    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.

    Would love to see the same level of intensity but I'm afraid we get lazy against weaker oppo.. we need to get a a handful of goals against someone to stop the slide.

    Should play 352 with Dalot and Perriera as WB.

    A must win game for us after recent results.

    Bench Pogba and Rashford.

    We're stuffed for fullbacks in this game but hopefully we'll come out of it with three points.

    No Shaw or Young I think? Should probably not play Rashford as well, 2nd half today he was visibly gassed.

    De Gea
    Dalot Smalling Lindelof Rojo?
    McTominay Fred
    Mata Pogba Martial
    Lukaku​

    Hopefully we win by a few. Goal difference could be important but also for the mentality of our players, we've been in grind after grind the last few months. A comfortable win would be almost a relief for them.

    Big game this.

    Even though I think we've been a bit unlucky in games against Arsenal and Barcelona the fact is we've lost 4 of the last 5 games.

    Have to win on Saturday, and I think we need to see a really good performance with a few goals too.

    Why doesn't Lucky Mcluckerson's post count ever increase?

    And why can't I alert him/her?

    And who is he/she anyway?

    Are Valencia and Darmian still United players? Registered? Fit? Not injured? Given that both Shaw and Young are out, hard to say who will be the other full back, Rojo maybe but he's shite at left back.

    Oh just realised, we won't be subjected to Young at full back but we may very well will be subjected to Rojo at full back. Joy.

    Anything less than 2-0 at half time will drain us for Tuesday.

    Why can't we just try Laird or O'Connor at LB if Shaw and Young can't play? Why persist with Rojo who we all want gone is not good enough, and has shown us his only good performances were at CB, not LB?

    This is an absolute must win game. Just our luck that it is sandwiched between the barca games.

    4 defeats in 5. Shaw suspended. This is obviously a must win and ideally with a little style again to raise confidence before it dips too low.

    The barca games for me were a bonus. We have huge games to come v Chelsea and City and if we nail the end of this season and get top 4 we've seen enough from some players to look to next season with optimism.

    Young is also suspended no? It may be a blessing but who plays left back now? Rojo?

    When did 352 become a defensive formation. Shaw and Young are missing the game through suspensions and last thing I want to see is Rojo at LB

    Must win game, having lost 4 of the last 5 and another defeat making top 4 extremely unlikely. I’m not sure when we would have last lost 5 out of 6, but I think it was between the end of 91-92 and the start of 92-93. Ole’s got to deliver results now until the end of the season or the hope for the future will quickly dissipate.

    We must win this game. I dread to think what happens if we lose this one. 5 defeats in 6 with another nailed on defeat in my opinion v Barcelona to come. Good job Ole has just been hired permanently or he could be in danger of losing his job.

    This end to a season could be our worst in a very long time especially with City and Chelsea still to play.
