Who would have thought I’d be trudging towards West Ham’s shiny new stadium on Monday night needing a win over Huddersfield Town to try and lift the Irons off the bottom of the league.
Meanwhile the Terriers have a shot at top spot after not conceding a goal in their first three games.
How the bookies are pricing up West Ham at odds on and the visitors at 7/2 I don’t know.
I’ll leave you to work out the value there as a sense of loyalty stops me pointing out the bleedin’ obvious.
The game will be a tale of two managers.
Huddersfield’s David Wagner is doing a great job while Slaven Bilic has lost the home crowd I’m afraid.
Slav seems like a nice enough bloke.
But his insistence on playing people out of position and sticking with players who are plainly out of form or just plain useless is costing us dear.
And that’s before you even consider some of West Ham’s recent transfer business.
Betting Spy will be watching the game through its fingers I fear but before the Monday night meltdown there’s a few other chances to make a bit of cash.
Burnley at home should have too much for a Crystal Palace side vying with West Ham for the biggest shambles in London title.
The manager, players and fans all seem confused by what system to play which is not a great place to be when visiting Turf Moor.
Chelsea are also a confident shout to get a result at Leicester while Swansea have made a few decent signings and should have too much for visitors Newcastle.
That little treble pays a tasty 9/1 which will be a nice stake for Monday for all you Huddersfield fans out there.
