So many questions, not least why are they selling their only backup striker?
They signed some Swiss lad from Basel in the summer too.

It will be interesting what they do if Haller is injured/rested. None of their other forwards can really lead the line (Antonio, Yarmolenko etc...). Risky though to sell/release Hernandez, Perez, Arnautovic and Carroll(lol) all in one window.

West Ham looking decent tho.
Nah, they're not. They've played shit teams. Haller should've been sent off before he scored against Norwich too, in a game they were under the cosh in. The momentum almost instantly shifted when he got away with his studs-up lunge. They drew with Brighton, beat Watford and lost 5-0 to City.

They will finish top 10, maybe.

Haller will be a big difference for them this season.

Everyone outside the top 2 or 3 is going to lose to 4/5-0 to Man City this year.

But yeah, they'll hopefully do their usual shooting themselves in the foot. Apart from when they win at the Lane of course.

Annoying that this is absolutely a given

Yep, people won't admit it though.
Just as you've rated my post funny, as if I'm saying something risible: I work for Betway and have been in a box for each West Ham game this season, except the Man City one. What have you seen of them? Grainy streams? MOTD highlights? Only their City game was on TV, and they lost that one 5-0. Curious to know what we're all living in denial of.

Thing is, top ten is decent, so yeah they are looking decent😉

They have some decent players, they have some good players too. All in, a decent team.
Decent teams in this league finish between 7th-12th, which is where they’ll finish ( I reckon 9th )

The problem is they confuse a decent team with a good team and sometimes a very, very good team. That’s why we get chat from them about finishing above us, cracking the top 4 etc
Let’s look at it honestly, how many of their side makes our starting XI?
I’m struggling pick one. I quite like Anderson and Lanzini but better than Son or Eriksen? I’ve always liked Yarmolenko but again, he’s not getting the nod ahead of Son is he?

Fabianski had a great season last season, but not being picked ahead of Hugo is he? I’m not even going to compare Wheelchair or Noble to what we have.

Their new “world class” striker? Again, I’m not even going to attempted a comparison in that position. Pointless

Urgh 1 up again Man Yoo, can’t even rely on them being shit at the moment... 🙈🙈

Their fans have probably got a league table poster on the wall with us and them highlighted in bright marker pen, which they are furiously masturbating over until their balls are completely drain...
