Big game against Bournemouth
 
Next week we play Bournemouth in what appears to be a nothing end of season fixture. However the difference between wining and losing is £1.9 million pounds prize money and if West Ham lose, winning could be worth £3.8 million.

To put it into context the winner of the FA cup receives £3.6 million and £3.8 is the equivalent value of the club selling an 7000 extra season tickets.

Big game next week, be nice if the team and fans perform and we finish on a real high and £3.8 million richer.

Need it for our extortionate wage bill.

It’s an insignificant game in the scheme of things and I hope we give some players a chance. Whatever Hodgson does, I just hope it’s nothing like the way he set us up against Everton.

It would pay for 8 months of Benteke's wages.

Despite this I would like to see one or two youth team players given a chance. AWB is worth a lot more than £3.8m, so who knows what Woods etc. could be worth in future if they can make the grade.

It's totally not an insignificant game , as the OP points out there is a possible 3.8 million pounds up for grabs which is an awful lot of money for a club our size , hope Roy selects the same front 4 that played against Cardiff and then we'd be in for an exciting game.

This, all day long.

Just be nice to beat them at home and wipe that smirk off Howe's face let alone the money rewards for the club.

If we donít give some reserve/academy players a chance in a game like this then when will we. Itís the perfect opportunity. Youíve got to think about the future as well as the short term.

Attack, Attack, Attack.

(Apologies for the foul language).

I think the tactical genius that is Eddie Howe plays 442 so hopefully Roy will do the right thing.

It would be nice to have attacking intent for the last game.

Yeah, 3.8 Million is very insignificant :

League Cup is for giving players a chance. On the one hand people are moaning about us not spending enough on new players, so why risk throwing 4M away

jhc 06-05-2019 07:45 AM

Doesn’t seem that long ago that our total annual income was about £12m.
A possible £3.8m for one game!!!
What we would have given for that opportunity back then!
How times have changed

IanH 06-05-2019 07:57 AM

So basically, if we win and Watford do the business, we have the fee for Ayew from this one game.

ee-ay-ee-ay-ee-ay-o 06-05-2019 08:13 AM

Just hate everything about Bournemouth..

And now they have that incredibly dirty git, Jefferson Lerma.. (26 games, 16 bookings.. season 2017/18) along with the rest of them, particularly Aki, who fall as if they've been shot when in the opponents pen area they are just a horrible little outfit.

Sod the extra £x m's just beat 'em

Scifo 06-05-2019 08:17 AM

Come on, on relative terms it is our least important game of the season.

It'd be nice to get a home win to gloss over those stats and a bit of cash would be nice but its one of the few games where there's room for sentiment.

Start Speroni. I doubt we'll see any kids (Unless we play Dann as a Striker ;) ). And as I've been shouting into the ether these past few weeks, find a little room in you heart for Connor Wickham.

Latvian 06-05-2019 08:22 AM

They can afford to play a youngster in goal, I hope we put our very senior goalie in.

Just have a bench full of youngsters plus players like Souare who unlikely to feature again, hopefully they can have a little run out at the end. The match may be decided by then.

Feel the same - I don't this will be like an end of Season game, against those niggly tw*ts !!

A Wooden Fish On Wheels 06-05-2019 08:26 AM

I don't think the clubs cares too much about the fans' money and has been rather careless with its own money, so I'm not going to lose sleep over this one.
