Mark Noble has suggested that West Ham dropping 19 points from winning positions this season is unacceptable, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard.

The Hammers are in real trouble. David Moyes’s men currently sit in 18th spot in the Premier League table, and are one point adrift of safety.

And it could be set to get a whole lot worse for West Ham, with away games against Manchester City and Liverpool next up on the agenda.

Things could have been so different this season, however, had the Hammers been able to hold onto their leads.

West Ham have dropped more points from winning positions (19) this term than any other team in the Premier League.

 

And Noble admitted that that is unacceptable, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard:

“Apparently, we’ve dropped 19 points from winning positions this season. That is unacceptable and if you halved that total, we would be ninth in the table.”

In truth, dropping 19 points from winning positions really is unacceptable. And it highlights a certain kind of weak mentality that the West Ham players must have.

As mentioned earlier, their next two fixtures will probably not yield any points. So David Moyes will be targeting the home games against Southampton and Wolves in a few weeks time as absolute must wins.

One thing’s for certain, the Hammers absolutely cannot afford to drop any more points from winning positions this season. Because if they do, they will surely be relegated for the first time since 2011.
