West Ham United don’t just have to win against Bournemouth in the Premier League tonight, we need to win convincingly.

The Hammers dropped down to 17th spot in the Premier League table after this weekend’s results, and we are sitting just two points clear of bottom placed Nottingham Forest.

The good news is that a win will take us up to 10th in the table.

Obviously the result is the most important thing. It’s the be-all and end-all for West Ham at the moment.

The thing is, fan interest is at an all-time low at the moment. That’s in spite of the fact that David Moyes has brought in some really exciting signings including the likes of Lucas Paqueta, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet.

The reason for that is that West Ham’s performances have been incredibly dull this season. And that all needs to change tonight if the Hammers are to save their season, and get the fans back onside…

West Ham don’t just have to win tonight

The Hammers need to put in a top-class performance – one that gets the fans up off their seats.

The London Stadium has been hopelessly devoid of any kind of feel-good factor this season. And that has to change if we are to challenge for the top seven.

Even the new signings must be feeling the same as the fans.

Some of the football this season has been so negative, boring and predictable that it’s hard to get excited about us as a team.

The onus is on Moyes to change that.

West Ham have been handed a boost with Maxwel Cornet and Nayef Aguerd back in training ahead of tonight’s game with Bournemouth.

Hopefully Lucas Paqueta will be available for selection as well.

A win is obviously an absolute must…but we want, and need, more.

West Ham don’t just have to win tonight, the players need to put on a real show for the fans.
