Sunday’s game could be said to be more important to West Ham than last season’s Cup Final. I don’t think that’s an exaggeration.
So what approach should we take? We need a point to stay up, but to play for that would be madness. Time and again this team has proved it finds it difficult to defend a lead.
Any talk of going 4-5-1 should be banished. We need to score at least once.
I have only been to Old Trafford once. We won 1-0 through a Defoe goal. I vowed never to return on the basis that it just coiuldn’t get any better than that. I was wrong. A draw on Sunday would indeed be better than that.
I’m getting quite moist thinking about it!
