Back in June, when the 2018 / 2019 fixture lists came out, exciting times appeared to be on the horizon.
The club, as David Sullivan had said they would, were particularly active in the transfer market, adding some depth and quality to a squad that had struggled in the previous two seasons.
On the back of the above, here at Vital West Ham, we ran an article, Click Here, whereby I was bold enough to stick my head above the parapet and predict how many points the Hammers would accumulate from their first six games.
On reflection, I appear to have gotten it wrong.
But, then again, I doubt whether many other supporters would have thought we’d be rock bottom of the Premier League with no points from the first four games.
In getting it wrong, I’d calculated that the Hammers would accumulate 9 points from the opening half-a-dozen fixtures.
With just two of those games remaining, away to Everton and at home to Chelsea, the most we can manage is 6, although it is fair to say that we need an upturn in form and a change in fortune to take maximum points against the two sides named.
Strange how, every pre-season, we all get carried away isn’t it!
