    West Ham v Burnley Match Preview

    Charlie Taylor unlikely to be fit so I only see one change from the starting line up against Manchester United and that is McNeil replacing JBG. Sorry guys you know what that means. Wood & Barnes starting again. No wonder Vydra wants away. The main cause of our woes this season is a lack of goals yet we have persisted with Wood and Barnes. Can we really not try something different? The Hammers with 26 points are 10 points better off than us and we will do well to keep that gap not getting any greater. Their danger man is Thomas Soucek who scores valuable goals. The lively Antonio is likely to put a lot of pressure on our defence. I can see West Ham scoring at the London Stadium so can we find a goal from somewhere? COYC.

    We need to put in a performance and get their onion net bulging.

    Our problem is not only with Wood & Barnes being unable to finish off what little chances we create, but with Dyche's stubborn tactic of defending with all the team behind the ball then hoofing a clearance into the oppositions half so it comes straight back at our defence.

    Its not going to happen ,expect a draw at the very best and that's only if they don't score as we can't score.

    I believe in history in football and the facts are that West Ham have not scored against us for 270 minutes since their 4th goal which was scored in the 90th minute in their 4-2 win in 2018, their third goals having come in the 784th minute.
    Since then we have had the three wins and Chris Wood has scored 2 goals, in fact, historically they are a team against whom he usually does well, whether starting or coming on from the bench ---fingers crossed.

    West Ham could perceive us as their bogey team which gives us an advantage, like City have over us. Not saying we'll score 5 though.

    They will surely set up expecting to face Wood and Barnes. Why not spring a surprise by naming Vydra and Jay Rod in our starting line up? Is that too radical?

    Probably outwood , we d like it but I have a feeling Sean wonít.

    In some cases I think Dyche is the manager and as Iíve said before he knows better than us , my gripe sometimes is at least give the substitutes a fair chance of altering the game not between 4-6 mins including Injury time.
