West Ham United Free Bets 2019/20

West Ham United are a football club based in East London. Known as the Hanmers, or the Irons, they were formed in 1895 under the name Thames Ironworks, before becoming West Ham United. They have played their matches at the London Stadium, formerly the Olympic Stadium, moving away from the Boleyn Ground in 2016.

Their former stadium was then demolished and replaced by housing. Fans have not been happy about that decision and protested against current owners David Gold and David Sullivan, who bought the club in 2010. Their current boss, former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, a Premier League winner, will be hoping to help appease the supporters after a superb summer in the transfer window, signing the likes of Pablo Fornals and Sebastian Haller.

Premier League Enhanced Odds

Pellegrini has a lot of history to live up to, but West Ham have not won a major trophy in some time. They have never won a league title, finishing third in 1986, but have a good record in the FA Cup, winning it in 1964, 1970 and 1986. They lost one of the best modern day finals to Liverpool in 2006, falling on penalties after a 3-3 draw after extra time, with Steven Gerrard scoring a wondergoal to save the Reds. Notable players from the past include Bobby Moore, who saw the number six shirt at the club retired in his honour, Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst. The trio were vital to England’s sole World Cup win in 1966. Paulo Di Canio lit up the East End at the turn of the 20th century, while playing under Harry Redknapp and alongside academy graduates Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand. Their all time top goalscorer is Vic Watson, who scored as many goals as he did games, 326, between 1920-35.

West Ham United season predictions 2019/20

It has been another summer of heavy spending at West Ham, with a challenge for the top six firmly in sight. Players like Pablo Fornals and Sebastian Haller have joined to strengthen their midfield and attack respectively, and hope and expectation are incredibly high at the London Stadium. Fans will demand more from Manuel Pellegrini, who finished tenth last term. The dream would be to breakup the top six, and they will be one of the teams, along with Wolves, Leicester and Everton, who will believe they can do that. Haller was one of the better strikers in Europe last season, scoring over 20 goals in all competitions for Eintract Frankfurt, and he will add another dimension to the Hammers’ attack, though they will be lacking from the departure of Austrian Marko Arnautovic. Pellegrini will be hoping for more big things from youngster Declan Rice, while Jack Wilshere will have to stay fit.

All in all, it should be an exciting season for West Ham. They have a lot of quality and will be able to look up rather than down throughout the campaign. Whether they can break into the top six is debatable, but they certainly should be thinking about cementing a place in the top ten and going for one of the cups.
