A Very Happy Boxing Day!

A very Happy Christmas to all my readers, but let’s face it, we’d probably settle for a miserable Christmas and three points on Boxing Day, wouldn’t we?

    A merry christmas to you as well,i feel tomorrow is a must win game and an ideal one for us to get in the winning habit at home and push for what i believe is achievable a top 6/7 spot.

    Thank you Iain, & a happy Christmas & Boxing day to yourself & all the other regulars here from me. I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now & it is most enjoyable here amongst some good West Ham boys. Yes i hope for 3 points against Reading & that is very possible. We have both had a couple of good results but we should beat them. Don’t forget last year in the 4 games over the Christmas New Year break we only took 1 point. We are better than that already. I don’t see why we can’t take 6 or 7. Some very positive things came out of the Boro game. A very solid game from Spector & me one of his critics previously. A better game from Freddie too. We passed well & the long ball was not used nearly as much. Someone must be reading your Blog. Ashton’s goal was a rocket. If Schwartzer had of got a hand to it, it would have amputated it. Another commanding game from Parker who has turned into Curbs best signing. A couple of good results over the break & a little bit of luck & we are hanging off the places for Europe.

    It will a game where we will score early and then rip the royals to shreds. I am not usually this bold and no, i haven’t been drinking. We are due an emphatic win at home. 3-0.

    A lose could be dangerous as it would place reading a single point below us and once again relegation possibilitys would rear their ugly heads.. although Im sure our players have to start getting fit (and in form) before that becomes a true threat this season.

    merry X-mas to you all. As for 2008 let’s hope the likes of Scotty Parker and Bellamy stay fit. The latter I’d like to see playing regular up front with Deano. And hopefully Mark Noble will get back in the team ASAP.

    Unfortunately I’m only able to see a few games every season. So I won’t be over for the Man U game. I really hope Mr. Carlos Tevez will get the reception he truly deserves though.

    And a very Merry Xmas to you and all at West Ham till I die. Without wwanting to be too sycophantic you have produced a tremendous column in 2007….here to a Hammertatsic 2008 ….and long may they and you King Curbs and the boys continue

    Iain, no intention to sidetrack the blog but found an interesting article on Fabio Capello written by our own Robert Green, if you have a spare ten minutes.

    Might be the alcoholic haze before our Christmas dinner – but I hope we don’t boo Carlos. He played a really big part in keeping us up last year and did everything we could have asked of him. So he went to Man U – but he is a real talent and needs to play in the Champions League.

    So harking back to the days when we used to clap good play by the opposition I’d love to hear the whole ground sing ” There’s only only one Carlos Tevez. ” ( Preferably when he is subbed without scoring a goal against us. )

    Happy Christmas.

    Merry Xmas to you Iain and your Family.
    West Ham give me enough miserable days, im afraid xmas and boxing day, are days they wont bring misery, but we will win.. we have a stronger side. My prediction is 2-1 to the Mighty Hammers.
    Merry xmas to everone else too.

    Um, what is Boxing Day? There is something about holidays spent with family that brings on all the old fights; no taking off the gloves for a day of peace & love. Thanks for the well wishes, everyday happy is better than any day miserable.

    Merry Christmas and thank you again for your blog which is always worth reading.
    Best season greetings from Vienna!

    A happy boxing day and happy at home in 2008 as our home form will change and why not 6 points in 3 days? Looking forward to welcoming back Bellamy and Faubert could be awesome for pace and returning to a squad that means business-ashton, spector, parker and co. excellent at boro. Well done Alan Curbishley I am proud of you- it really is exciting stuff -my seasons greetings to one and all!!

  13. Hammers & Zvezda says:

    Merry Christams to you too! Am I the only one shitting himself? I remember too many post Christmas games and far too many lost points…What was that old saying; ‘down come the Christmas decorations and so does West Ham, down the table’! I still think we will win, I have for 33 years so why change now!

    Marry Christmas and happy New Year to everybody and thank you for your effort you put into this site Iain.

    Todays game is a must win game in my book (no matter how many players we are still missing). I am very satisfied with what we have achieved so far considering the unbelievable amount of injuries which have depleted our squad during this campaign and I am looking forward for even better times. I hope we will have chance to see again Ashton Belamy partnership soon and I personally have huge expectations regarding this Faubert fella. If we are able to survive this winter period with some sensible results we can even attack European cup places comming last third of the season vhen hopefully some more players will be available recovered imo. This season is about stability though and midtable finish would be fine after abysmal last season and considering the injuries we have had so far. Lets hope Curbs invest given budget sensibly and we continue in our plan to reach top 6. It will be no easy and many clubs have the same target, but I can see us moving in good direction.

    COME ON U IRONS !!!!!!!

    Greetings to everyone – just discovered this blog recently and now on the favorites so keep it up.
    Hopefully a win today! Does anyone know the reason why we always kick off early on boxing day – back in the seventies it always meant I could never go to the game as there were no trains running early enough?
