    West Ham United FC v Sunderland

    Post  Admin on Fri 20 Mar 2015, 4:42 pm

    Upton Park plays host as West Ham take on Sunderland in Dick Advocaat's first game in charge of the Back Cats, live on Saturday Night Football.




    The Dutchman has nine games to try and turn things around at the Stadium of Light and if the side remain where they are in 17th at the end of the season, it is likely to be viewed as a job well done
    Sunderland have failed to win in their last eight games, with a 3-1 FA Cup win at Fulham at the start of February the last time they tasted victory.
    If there is anything that may provide encouragement for the visitors though it is that West Ham are on a similarly poor run.


    Sam Allardyce’s side have lost their last three and have to go back to late January for their last win, 1-0 over Bristol City in the FA Cup. A 3-0 triumph over Hull a week prior to that is the Hammers’ most recent league win.


    Team news




    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed James Tomkins will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery while Winston Reid (hamstring) is a major doubt.


    Carl Jenkinson is back in contention having been ineligible against parent club Arsenal last weekend but, while Carlton Cole is fit again following a hamstring problem, fellow strikers Andy Carroll (knee) and Enner Valencia (toe) remain sidelined.


    New Sunderland head coach Advocaat has revealed winger Adam Johnson is available "in principle".
    The 27-year-old midfielder returned to training earlier this week after a club suspension was lifted which had been imposed following his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16, although Advocaat was not planning to make a decision on his inclusion or otherwise until after his final session.


    Defender John O'Shea (knock) and Sebastian Larsson (ankle) are doubts, while fellow midfielder Lee Cattermole completes a two-match ban and Will Buckley (knee) and Emanuele Giaccherini (ankle) remain on the sidelines.




    Opta facts




    Sunderland have lost just one of their last seven Barclays Premier League games against West Ham (W3 D3 L1).
    Jermain Defoe has scored four goals in his last five Premier League appearances against former club West Ham United.

    ugh... if it weren't bad enough that we played so crappy last week...

    if it weren't so bad that we're on a ridiculously bad run of results...

    if it weren't like we're playing another team on their first game with a new manager where even the potential rapist sex offenders have the opportunity to prove themselves...

    if it weren't that we have a pretty piss poor record against the Black Cats in recent years...

    if it weren't that Defoe has scored four in the last five against us...

    If it weren't bad enough that Valencia is still absent due to the dangerous tea cup incident and that Carlton Cole IS fit to play...


    then I'd actually be feeling pretty good and confident about tomorrow's game.


    The one bit of good news is that no matter what happens... we can't drop any lower than where we currently are.

    But if miracles do happen and all results go in our favor, we could actually jump up as high as 8th in the table.

    However, given all of the above and primarily based on how piss poor we were last weekend and factoring how charged up Sunderland will be - I really do have a bad feeling about this game.

    We really, honestly do have the opportunity to get at least 9 points from the next four games and TBH - anything less than 9 points out of those 12 should really be considered pretty shameful...

    But we have to remember who we are and anything other than ridiculous peaks & troughs and diabolically poor performances when we have a 'relatively' easy game in front of us - just wouldn't be West Ham.

    Well following their result last week I was going into this thinking we can match or even beat Villa`s result against them but following a change In manager I think it wont be as easy as it first looked and they will now get that "New Manager Luck" and probably go on and beat us today

    I think a draw is on the cards today Tbh

    We can win this, but I can also see disaster coming with the new Sunderland manager and his players with something to prove. We all saw how we could fail miserably as we did against Crystal Palace. If the Sunderland players want the game more than us and we think it is a walk in the park because of their 4-0 Villa loss, we will lose.

    could save our season, a haul of points like that, but given the injuries and severe lack of form, I can't see it happening at all. Normally at home id want three points and a point away from home but think i'd settle for a point today. Which sums up how far we fallen and how low my hopes now are...sadly...

    well Palace did us a favor by beating Stoke

    Arsenal did us a favor by beating Newcastle

    unfortunately, Swansea got a winner in the last three minutes against Villa

    so whatever happens we'll probably just remain where we are...


    gave a gilt-edged oppo to Defoe but fortunately he blazed wide from 12 yards out.

    Noble's set pieces are down to his usual crappy standard...

    we're looking fairly bright but weak at the back

    were they joking about Cole coming on?

    he must be wearing the fupping cloak of invisibility if he is...

    I think I just saw him... standing around watching what's going on.

    seriously... if he's trying to prove his worth to himself, his club or potential buyers... he needs to buck his fupping ideas up...
