My Preview of the Eagles v Irons & Carlos Tevez



Now we are over the mid week defeat to Tractor Boys we must move on to beat the Eagles away on Saturday.


West Ham boast a 50% winning record in competitive meetings with Crystal Palace (13 of 26). Palace have won four, with nine drawn.


 The pair have not played each other since that awful day Palace's beat us 1-0 at the Millennium Stadium in May 2004, which gained them promotion to the Premier League and kept us in the championship for another season. :-(


West Ham have only been beaten twice in a league game on Crystal Palace turf in May 1995, and April 2004.


Six of the Eagles' 10 league goals have been scored in the last 12 minutes. West Ham defenders please note!
West Ham are still Unbeaten away from home, victory will equal the West ham's total of points on.


Disappointed to hear that Robert Green will be out for six weeks. Joey O'Brien, Winston Reid and Matty Taylor are also doubts through injury.


Goalkeeper Manuel Almunia on an initial one-month emergency loan from Arsenal and is cleared to play tomorrow. Marek Stech  is away on loan at Burnley and I am told if he plays one more game for West Ham it will trigger a £500,000 payment to his former club. Boffin let himself down at the  Aldershot game so was unlikely to be risked in the first team again so soon,


The big news was a cheeky big by David Gold for Carlos Tevez which the back page of the Sun

Just last year, the Sun reported Carlos Tevez said "I wish to play again for West Ham before I finish my career. I have some unfinished business there"

Well he just might get his chance. LOL!




Here is my team and prediction:




                      
                                Almunia


       Diop   Tomkins   Faye    McCartney


         Bentley Nolan Noble  Collison Lansbury      

                              Tevez ;-)
                               

My prediction is a 1-0  Hard fought Away Win  Come On You Irons!
