West Ham (I imagine) played without fear last night knowing that this was a free hit. We can do the same against Liverpool and City. The great thing about these games is there are still only 3 points at stake and they don't usually involve '6 pointers'. West Ham are doomed, doomed I tell thee. Anyo...

anywhere from 17th upwards will do for me. If we perform as we have in the first 27 matches we should finish on 52points but in 17-18 season I think we got 18 from the last 11 games.

As I hear things, yesterday was the scenario you predicted could happen with VAR although it wasn't a relegation battle.
Given I am in Tromso and unable to see even the highlights of the game would be interested in how you saw things. In the absence of VAR it sounds as if we may have lost yesterday?
