    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.

    Don't expect a great performance, but the squad is good and we start with 11 men again. Also Ole and our coaches have badges.

    I know Wan Bissaka isn't suspended, but he's been pure garbage. Garbage on the ball, been garbage defensively and not playing with intensity. Sancho needs some time to ease into everything.

    Yep. Sancho and VDB will probably play in the cup game.

    I expect a similarily difficult game as tonight although I hope we won't be a man down. Any chance Scott will be fit?

    Hoping for same team as Newcastle, provided Matic doesn't spend the whole game running away from midfield.

    Difficult game definitely, so I'll be praying it's not Fred-Pogba midfield, Wolves caused us so many problems, no doubt West Ham would too. Fred-Matić or Fred-Van de Beek (not likely though I think) are options as it seems McTominay is still unavailable.

    I'd prefer to see Pogba back in midfield.

    I'd still start Sancho considering he only played 37 minutes today(I know he was poor).

    We need to win this and play well. We need a response.

    Please no Pogba in the LW. Play him in MF.

    Sancho and Greenwood on the wings. Ronaldo up top.

    Old United would bounce back with a good performance, great opportunity for the lads to put in an ‘angry’ performance (maybe not as mad as AWB mind).

    Lingard nailed on to start knowing Ole. Antonio being out is massive for us but I still don't expect more than a point.

    I'd play same team as v Newcastle if Matic can manage the minutes, we should be blowing teams away with our players and trusting our defence...but I'm sure we'll go defensive. It's our number one go to tactic.

    1-1

    just fecking win.

    Wan-Bissaka & Fred nowhere near the pitch please. No shit players allowed. Pogba either left wing or bench. He’s a passenger in the middle with zero defensive awareness. He’s been better on the left then Sancho so I’d start him there. Dalot & Shaw’s instructions = “ping the ball at fecking Ronaldo’s head”

    We´ll bound back, I have no doubt in my heart. Ole will go with (4-3-3):

    .................... De Gea

    Bissaka - Varane - Maguire - Shaw

    ... Fernandes - Matic - Pogba

    Greenwood - Ronaldo - Sancho

    or

    Fernandes - Matic - Fred

    Greenwood - Ronaldo - Pogba

    Very possible we'll hear something like this.

    Or we batter them and actually kick on but I'm never confident as a fan in this team ever being convincing.

    West Ham is playing Europa league on Thursday, I guess they wont field a strong team but some first teamers will certainly play.

    Expecting another one where we struggle to string 2 passes together and make Moyes look like Pep. But we have enough quality to nick a goal or 2 and win. 2-1.

    Will be another tough watch watching us try to string 3 passes together but I’ve got a good feeling. 3-1 United.
