It's a very tricky tie to have a strong opinion about, both sides have been struggling and unpredictable.

The market however is strongly in the West Ham camp and now trading around the 2.42 mark having been a fair bit bigger earlier in the day and yesterday.

I've backed West Ham as well in the hope that they simply have got to show up tonight to stop the rot and I'm hoping they'll do exactly that.

Yes indeed, with vinegar and a sprinkle of white pepper no doubt.

A very solid West Ham performance and Bowen was outstanding.
The market got it spot on.

Good win for Hammers though, they needed it.
Report sparrow February 27, 2024 1:08 PM GMT
Not carried away with that win although quite an improvement and but for our keeper things might have been very different. Our defending needs to get much better and one thing you learn with West Ham is that you win nothing if you can't defend properly.

You should try supporting my side sparrow (Bradford city) if you think it's hard supporting an unreliable side who like to help the opposition - I've had about last 22 years of them letting me down (with occasional ups), and we've been great at losing to the worst sides in league 2 often enough...

Blimey, small world indeed - they will have known the trials of the Bantams very well indeed then, fair play to them! We've had a hard time being supporters for sure. And I'm sure you will remember at one point we were playing West Ham in the Premier league.

That same season we actually had wins over Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle, which is ridiculous when compared to our current level.

Just to also show the craziness - Man City were not even in the same league as Bradford City quite literally that year, as a lower down club, which was only in 2000.

I moved to Yorkshire in 1970 and well remember working in Bradford alongside Bradford City and Leeds supporters and just the one Bradford PA fan who was given a very hard time by them all. I have long since moved from that area but still live in Yorkshire.
Report stu February 28, 2024 1:02 PM GMT
Ah, yes, the PA fans are a small and hardy bunch still - though I know a few City fans who also support Avenue.

I'm originally from Harrogate and then Ilkley (nearer to Bradford) - hence why I support Bradford. I was torn between Leeds and Bradford for a little while, but family took me towards Bradford - certainly not for the glory-hunting that's for sure, Leeds have almost always been higher up (except for a few very short times).

Hope you enjoy living in Yorkshire - it's a great county to live in IMO. Though I'm a bit biased. Sadly I now live in Wales due to historical moves/work/family - but get back to Bradford games when I can, and folks up there.

Having been here for some 54 years now I think I can say I enjoy it. Coming from the East End of London it was a big move and took some getting used to but I had elder brothers and sisters here who were evacuated during the war.
Report stu February 28, 2024 2:04 PM GMT
Yep, guess that counts as settled there in that case! Fair bit different to London (I've also lived very near London, Hatfield and stayed with my brother often who lived in London) so spent a lot of time in London too - funny old world ay. Wouldn't swap Yorkshire for London personally as a place to live - visit fine, living there not for me. It's just grown too populace for me these days.
