West Ham have turned a corner in recent weeks and have surged up the Premier League standings after a four-match winning streak.
The Hammers endured a tough start to the campaign but significant improvements have been shown since the start of the December and there is every chance that the fine run being enjoyed by Manuel Pellegrini’s side could continue.
Watford are up next before a trip to Southampton, which is followed by clashes against Burnley and Brighton in the Premier League, with attention then switching to the FA Cup as the Hammers begin their venture in the competition against Birmingham City.
Unfortunately, fans continue to be at the mercy of the TV giants when it comes to their matches though and many supporters were left unhappy with the announcement of changes to the fixture list in February.
Three matches have been selected for TV coverage, with clashes against Fulham and Liverpool moved to a Friday night and Monday evening respectively. We have gathered some of the reactions to the news below.
That’s ruined that. My fiancé is over from the US and was looking forward to the Liverpool game, now we won’t be able to make it ????

Great. 2 games now my son can’t make that he would have been at. When people question why Adults upgrade kids tickets, this is why. Not always bought as a holding ticket. My son hates missing games just week night games are a none starter with my Ex.

Not exactly family football…we don’t get home from a midweek game until midnight. Not good for my son going to school or my husband and myself for getting up for work. Also trains are 3 times more expensive during the week. Thanks @SkySportsPL
