West Ham Utd look set to make an appearance in the nPower Championship Play-off’s which are described as the biggest prize in football due to the mouth watering £60 million pound Premier
League sized reward waiting for the winner.
Do the Hammers stand a chance of being victorious? Let’s look at the potential opposition as it stands.

Birmingham: West Ham’s bogey side over the past few years will present a tough task. Giant striker Nikola Zigic saves his best performances for the visit of the Hammers. With only six away wins this season for the Brummies, West Ham will have to make the most of the inevitable rocking atmosphere at the Boleyn ground and build up a good lead in the home leg.
Blackpool: Eight goals have bulged Blackpool’s onion bag in the previous two matches against the Hammers. Confidence will be high against the Tangerines particularly because last time out we didn’t even need a keeper!
Brighton and Hove Albion: Experiencing a second wind after looking a force to be reckoned with at the start of the season, they will need to be watched especially their skillful striker Craig Mackail-Smith. Personally I think the Hammers have got what it takes to beat Brighton quite comprehensively.

So what is the verdict? In an ideal world beating Brighton first to set up a mouth watering Wembley final with Ian Holloway’s Blackpool side would be great. Avoiding Birmingham is important but if the Brummies stand in our way then revenge for our league cup knock out will the flavour of the day.
The pressure on West Ham will be intense during the play off’s but with the crowd behind them we are still, in my opinion, by far the most talented squad in the division and more than capable of taking our great club back to where we belong.
