I REALLLLY hope that West Ham are relegated. No offense, Irons supporters, but the FA screwed up big time when it chose not to dock your club points for the MSI fiasco.

It looks like the Hammers have good management in place now, and it looks likely that relegation would probably mean only one season in the Championship wilderness. I know the current ownership wasn't responsible for the earlier clusterfark, but the club still needs to be held accountable. Hopefully, on Sunday, in the spirit of fair play, the Reds will render the FA's poor judgment moot.

Hot damn, I like watching West Ham play. Tevez is brilliant alongside Zamora.

That said, Eggert Magnusson is one of the goofiest-looking guys I've ever seen.

Soccer - it's sort of like hockey except without the ice and every player's a pussy.

Agreed NakedReporta. West Ham need to be relegated with their shenanigans involving Tevez and Mascherano. Plus I hate the Hammers.

/Come on you Spurs! Europe bound again (I hope!)
//Grats to you Man Utd fans. Way to get the title away from those effin Chelski bastards.

Truer words were never before spoken. There are so many nancies in soccer that you'd think they were running a daycare.

West ham looked decent last game. Well Tevez looked good at least. They gotta hope that Sheffield doesn't lose to Wigan, and they're fine. That or pray that Man U doesn't care now that it is wrapped up

I need Wigan to beat SheffU by enough to send them down, and then I win the office prediction pool! I had MUFC-CFC going 1-2, with Watford, the Blades, and Fulham going down. Those bastards at Fulham decided to win a couple important games and pull themselves out of relegation by their bootstraps, but if I get 2/3 of the relegated squads, I finish on top.

/3rd and 4th place were set in stone before the season started.

Ice hockey. It's field hockey and figure skating and lacrosse all in one. It's a chick sport trifecta.

I'd like to ammend my statement: European soccer players are pussies, and hockey sucks too.

I want the Hammers to go down as well but not because of the Argentinian clusterfark. I remember in 1995 they beat us to prevent us from winning the league and then celebrated like they'd won the league themselves. It's payback time, biatches!!

Fergie should sit the top players for both Prem matches. Rest up everybody for the FA Cup Final.

/Stand up if you love United.
