West Ham have nothing to fear going in. We are safe from fears of the drop on this upmost important season, and we face our rivals who potentially have a Premier League title to lose.
To derail their impressive season would mean the world to us all, and let’s hope our Irons deliver in doing so.
Our squad looks relatively healthy going in, with the only obstacle being no recognised right back available following Sam Byrams suspension, meaning Michail Antonio likely to fill the void.
Having spoken to a couple of Spurs fans this week, it is apparent they are not fancying this game. It’s one they know is vital and could prove a major part in success of failure this season.
We must make their fears recognised, and in doing so our team need to be at them from the first whistle.. And avoid our rather ‘slow start’ running theme.
Our excellent season in reality comes down to tonight. The bitter rivalry between us and Spurs, the last time we play them at the Boleyn, and the league significance makes this even more tense and exciting.
I shall be like most, anticipating, and slightly dreading this match. The idea of winning is mouth watering, and the horrendous thought of, I can’t even say it, is stomach turning.
I hope my desire to write later will be for all the right reasons.
Make us proud
