    West Ham fans seem to think they have this in the bag. That's just how Warnock and the boys like it though

    Who can forget our last minute winner back in 2011 scored by none other than... Kenny Miller :hehe::warnock:

    I used to love going to upton park with the city, at their new ground do west ham still have the gorgeous Hammerettes girls cavorting on the pitch half naked at half time? One of the few things to keep me out of the bar :wink:

    West Ham got better and better against Newcastle on Saturday. There were quite a few team changes and Mark Noble had a great game. It was also the first time I had seen Declan Rice play, who can't decide between ROI and England. Very classy player and way too good for ROI at the moment.

    They also have Arnautovic (£20m), Anderson (£35m) and Hernandez (£17m), so there is an abundance of attacking quality in the team, even if they are wasteful at times.

    Benitez said after the game: "They have spent the money on offensive players and they made the difference.

    "We are working on [signings in January], but it is a question of money. What they spend, what we spend, you can see that on the pitch.


    City will do well to live with West Ham, if they play like they did at Newcastle.

    This is an interesting one. Until last Saturday West Ham's form had been quite poor recently with only a win at home to Burnley who are currently in freefall and occupying a bottom three spot and a draw at Huddersfield who are also struggling at the bottom end of the table. However, West Ham did look a much improved team on Saturday against Newcastle, wh had themselves until then come in to a bit of form.

    Hopefully, the display against Newcasle was a temporary blip and they will return to their poor home form which has seen them win just one game at home this season, against Manchester United back in September. Cardiff City need to start picking up points from away games, not just relying on our current good home form. It is against teams like West Ham where we can look to pick up points away from home. I am anticipating a low scoring game tomorrow night and I anticpate one of the teams winning by the odd goal. Let's hope it's Cardiff that pick up the points.

    There should a great deal of confidence in the team following recent results and a growing belief amongst the players that they deserve to be playing at this level. I am sure Hoilett's goal on Friday night will give him the confidence to kick on now this season and to perform in a manner that we all know he is capable of. Injuries permitting I can see the team reverting to a back four tomorrow night rather than the line-up from last Friday. We also need to see a really good display from Joe Ralls tomorrow as his form and confidence also seems to have suffered lately.

    Definitely.

    West Ham are an established premier team, good players and we're away from home.

    A win would be massive for our confidence and league position.
