If we win, we have to consider Chelsea catchable. They are playing absolutely toilet and would be only 3 points away. Very big IF though. I’ve not got a great feeling about today. Really hope I’m wrong. Something in my stomach is nagging at me. Ah well, fuck my stomach.


“Something” in your stomach “nagging” at you. You support Arsenal. Acid in your stomach is par for the course mate.


Is White ill or injured? Any news on that front?

Tight hamstring apparently.


A mate of mine knows his girfriend and she sent pics of them in Spain on Monday already.

Tight like a Tiger


Good team. Slight worry about Holding, but he’s been good when he’s come on recently. Fingers crossed he starts well…

Holding should be less of a worry to you than Tàvares.
I have a feeling that is why Martinelli is picked over ESR: he gives Tavares cover.
As for Holding, Tomiyasu coming in gives him great cover.
If you are still worried, just imagine he is playing an FA Cup final against Chelsea.


West Ham playing a lot of players that played Thursday, but look at it this way, those players should be knackered by half time

If we’re not up for the match then it doesn’t really matter. We need to be the the that wasn’t it more. Usually after 10 min you can tell which Arsenal has showed up.


I love the vote of confidence MA gives Agent Chaos Tavares. This means a roller coaster 3 points.


I really disliked this comment before the game. Even more so now. Can we please stop with this narrative that somehow the negatives/positives in his game cancel each other out in some way ?
He is just so, so poor. Completely out of his depth at this level.




We cannot let Spurs pip Top 4. It would be an absolute travesty.


The way Chelsea are playing we may not need to worry about Spurs for top four. Having said that, fuck Spurs


Yeah – makes those bloody dropped points at Saints, Brighton and Palace all the more frustrating! 2 wins and a point off Palace and we’d now be in 3rd!!


Chelsea are kinda safe by virtue of their goal difference and the fact we need to play Spuds. One or the other of us will drop points. For both of us to pass them they will need to drop points in 3 or their last 4 by my calculations.
Let’s just win our own games and not worry too much about the rest of it


Every time one player comes back, another one goes missing. Very frustrating. Anyway, COYG!!!


M’Hand is my ex-‘s name, too…


Who’s our back up CB? Is he any good?


I think in that case Tomi will go to center, and Cedric in for the right back.

Jean Ralphio

That’s a strong west ham team.

Dennis Elbow

Very nervous for this game especially as the spuds are winning 3-0.
Up the Arsenal!!


Our defense is never healthy let’s hope holding is alright


Nervous for this one. Imperative we start with high intensity. If we put the pressure on they might not fancy it and start thinking about their semi final.


I’ve got five hundred on a Taveres hat trick

Bleeding gums murphy

He’s started well 😫

It’s all so slow, no pressing and pressure on the ball.


The moment we scored, it felt like we couldn’t hold on to the lead. Not surprised they equalized🙄

Billy bob

Pony first half!! Hope it improves second!!!


European football beckons. This team really needs it. Hard fought win
