West Ham boss Sam agrees Saints have had it tough

Daily Echo: Gaston Ramirez scores from a Saints set-piece Gaston Ramirez scores from a Saints set-piece

WEST Ham manager Sam Allardyce insists the Premier League fixture list has been kinder to his club than Saints.

A lot has been made of the opponents that Nigel Adkins’ men have had to encounter in the first few weeks of the season, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton all on the schedule.

West Ham, by contrast, have faced just one of last season’s top eight sides, losing 3-1 at home to Arsenal in their most recent match.

Allardyce admits that has been a big factor in the Irons picking up seven more points than today’s opponents.

“We’ve coped very well over the start of our season, also I think we had a group of fixtures that were less challenging than Southampton’s,” he said.

“We were disappointed by Arsenal, but our confidence, particularly here at home, is very, very high and I hope we can see the same level of performance that I’ve seen, particularly against Sunderland, Fulham and Aston Villa at the start of the season.

“If we can hit that level of form, I think we’ll get opportunities to win the game.”

Allardyce believes that one of the biggest threats posed by Saints will be from set-pieces.

The club’s last three goals have come via headers, either from corners or free-kicks.

And Jos Hooiveld’s winner against West Ham at St Mary’s last season came from a corner.

But Allardyce is cautiously optimistic that the Hammers will not be caught out in such a fashion again. “Clearly one of Southampton’s strengths is set plays and I don’t want to jump the gun, but one of our strengths this year is not conceding from set plays, as well as scoring from them,” he said.

“We’ll have to try and maintain that level and if we cut that side of it out for Southampton then we obviously limit their percentages of chances of scoring a goal, because they’ve been good at it.”

Anyway, my sentiment is true. The headline "West Ham boss Sam agrees Saints have had it tough", I can't see how anyone can think Saints gave not. We have played top teams and even Wigan, when we played them were 4th in the form table off the back of last year. so it has been a baptism of fire back into the EPL.

Mindset, "Luke here has got to get his mind right. Cool hand Luke.....

..we have to get our minds right...torturing myself with re -runs of all our games and sheer lack of concentration and panicking is our downfal...not talent per se....

...most teams relegated are usually shocking most of the time....exceptions would be Blackpool and WBA's relegations, rest of them were not good enough, we are good enough but need to get stuck in and have a win at all costs attitude..

Once upon a time the FA cup was the big one and teams raised their games...being in the Premiership must be treated as an old fashioned FA up tie every game...the players have to realise how fortunate they are to play there and give everything until they drop......lesser teams have survived because of this mentality...all for one and one for all...

Be interesting to see how we handle Carroll today, I thought West Ham would struggle until they pulled off this signing. He suits Sam's style perfectly with long balls and lots of crosses. I thought we handled Benteke, a rather tall physical player very well, so hopefully we'll see a repeat performance. At least we seem to have ditched the zonal marking.

An interesting BBC stat, as a team, we've attempted the least number of long passes in the division.

I'd appreciate it if we could all remember for a while at least that skunts are fish.

I am currently negotiating a very lucrative sandwich bar deal at Shatton - using attractive low-cost ingredients from my substantial garden and the local beaches.

Worms will be the favourite and I'm offering white and wholemeal bread worm sarnies and a rich worm-spread roll. Premium products include a caterpiller pannini and a maggot bagel. I think the biggest seller will be The Skunt Club Sandwich which has maggots, worms, caterpillers, plankton spread and algae sauce.

After many years of fishing in the western solent and Southampton water.
I would like to think that I single handed, have made a large dent in the skate population in the seas in this area.
Unsurprisingly I have always been reluctant to fish the eastern end.

I think you really need to use the fantastic red ragworm from Weston shore,you can't fail to catch plenty of punters.

I find comments about 'goal difference' or 'goals against' intriguing.

My view of being, say 1-0 down is that you should go all out for the goal, even if it risks losing 2-0 or 3-0. The reason is that if you get the point, the goal difference will be irrelevant. A point is ALWAYS worth more than a bad goal difference. Not sure if I'm explaining clearly, but it seems pretty self-evident to me.

Appreciated. If I can get some, I'll offer a Red Ragworm Baguette.

Good advice re the money too. I almost had a deal with the administrators, but was advised this won't hold when administrators are called in to administer the administration of the various previous administrators. After only three more administrations the current 2p in the £ will dilute to 0.1p in the £ and if the supporters are the owners it will only be 0.002% of a pledge.

It would be helpful to know if, when you have caught skates in the past, did any of them ever have any money on them?

Worms will be the favourite and I'm offering white and wholemeal bread worm sarnies and a rich worm-spread roll. Premium products include a caterpiller pannini and a maggot bagel. I think the biggest seller will be The Skunt Club Sandwich which has maggots, worms, caterpillers, plankton spread and algae sauce.
After many years of fishing in the western solent and Southampton water.
I would like to think that I single handed, have made a large dent in the skate population in the seas in this area.
Unsurprisingly I have always been reluctant to fish the eastern end.

I think you really need to use the fantastic red ragworm from Weston shore,you can't fail to catch plenty of punters.
Don't forget always get the money first!

Appreciated. If I can get some, I'll offer a Red Ragworm Baguette.

Good advice re the money too. I almost had a deal with the administrators, but was advised this won't hold when administrators are called in to administer the administration of the various previous administrators. After only three more administrations the current 2p in the £ will dilute to 0.1p in the £ and if the supporters are the owners it will only be 0.002% of a pledge.

It would be helpful to know if, when you have caught skates in the past, did any of them ever have any money on them?
Unsurprisingly, they had nuff-fin.
