    There is even more misery for Moyes with the news that defender Winston Reaid has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury and also, Sam Byram who suffered an ankle injury in the same game against Swansea, may also not play again this season.

    More bad news?
    James Collins and Angelo Ogbonna are also doubts due to a tight hamstring and illness respectively.

    Andy Carroll, Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes are all on the long-term injury list.
    Arthur Masuaku remains suspended after receiving a six-game ban for spitting.

    West Ham have won five of their seven Premier League meetings with Burnley (D1 L1), including winning all three home meetings.
    We last won away at West Ham, with Sam Vokes scoring the winner in a 2-1 win in the Championship in December 2011.

    I used to love watching Psycho play football, however, I have to wonder just how long he would last in today's 'thou shalt not tackle' era. If I am honest, I would love to have a chat with him about the modern game ---I wonder if he would agree with my thoughts that the game is going soft.

    I dont think well have a better chance to win OC and its wins we need if we are to keep the pressure on Arsenal.

    TEC predicts a win, so a win it will be!

    I'm a bit conflicted about this game, obviously I want us to win every game we play, but I also think Europa League qualification will be a disaster for us, and to avoid that we need to lose a few before the end of the season. So I still want us to win, but the cat won't be getting kicked if we lose, and it won't ruin my weekend as it often does.

    Sinkov don’t go soft we want to finish in the top 6 and if we do there’s a good chance we go into the Europa league group stages. We don’t want to be 7th and have our preseason ruined with unattractive qualifying games in unattractive places. If we get group games they will be attractive and we can let the development squad loose get more TV income and global awareness.
    So let’s stuff them and the rest and see where we end up. Arsenal played well though last night so it may not be easy but we have a 6 pointer with them to come.

    The only thing which concerns me about the game against the Hammers is ------history!!
    I would love a win, however, will settle for a draw with themgetting another dodgy goal at some stage in the game!

    I'm not being soft OC, the problem with the Europa is not just the games, it's the travelling as well, especially pre-season when we need to be working down Gawthorpe five days a week, we can forget training and bedding in new players on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and that imo is crucial to our continuing success. We can't compete on wages and quality of players, but what we lack in that respect Sean makes up for down Gawthorpe, take three days out of the five pre-season away from him and we'll be in trouble, I have no doubt about it.
    Look at Everton, Koeman spent a fortune last summer, brought in 9/10 new players but couldn't work with them pre-season, couldn't bed them in, as they were jetting all over Europe instead of being on the training ground. It was a disaster for them, it will be for us. So perversely I think we need to lose a few now to better ensure success next season.
