    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.

    If we draw after 90, it goes to pens. I’d play another keeper for that reason alone.

    Not DDG
    Dalot Varane Lindelöf Shaw
    VDB Matic
    Sancho Bruno Lingard
    Martial

    Yup if I can get through this one I think I can go onto have a great season
    As a previous winner I can give you one piece of advice. If in doubt, always go McFred*

    *Apart from these early cup rounds of course.

    If Cavani is still out I'm going to guess at this line-up.


    Pretty much this, just hoping Cavani & Telles get some minutes. McTominay will probably need few more for the sake of fitness.

    Buzzing for Elanga if he's playing from the start. Brightest aspect of our pre-season imo.

    Is Cavani available?
    Back in training possibly Monday/Tuesday, so bench at best I would think which is a shame as we might need him if we are rotating heavily

    Hopefully Telles and Sancho are fit. Need everyone in the squad to start having minutes under their belt.

    Give Ronaldo complete rest, hopefully Rashford is fit to come off bench.

    Hopefully we rest key players and go through. If we lose I wouldn't care too much, league cup isn't a priority.

    Hopefully Telles is fit to get a run out in this. I'd swap as many as possible:

    Heaton
    Dalot Bailly Lindelof Telles
    Matic Donny
    Mata Lingard Sancho
    Martial

    Dammit guys! Heaton is not starting ahead of Hendo!
    Henderson isn’t fully fit yet. He hasn’t been in the bench I don’t think so far

    I reckon Heaton is a good bet to start. Will finally make his debut 16 years later

    Unless they're coming back from injury and need a run out then I wouldn't want any first choice players, even if that means playing someone badly out of position. Mata can play left back for all I care.

    Ole as no.9, Carrick and Fletcher in the midfield?
