    Cardiff vs West Ham: The Alternative Preview

     

    Probable teams…

    Cardiff (4-4-2) Marshall; John, Turner, Caulker, McNaughton; Whittingham, Kim, Eikrem, Medel, Noone; Campbell.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first Cardiff signing Magnus Wolff Eikrem could very well get himself a starting berth for the new manager’s home debut. It’s likely the Baby Faced Assassin will recall Gary Medel and Jordan Mutch.

    West Ham (4-3-3) Jaaskelainen; Demel, Johnson, McCartney, Rat; Noble, Diame, Morrison; J.Cole, C.Cole, Downing.

    If only Sam Allardyce could drop his entire squad. Expect Jussi Jaaskelainen back in the fold and maybe even Ravel Morrison given some minutes. The Hammers need inspiration from somewhere.

     

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    This Hammer lost a bet and had to go to the Cardiff game dressed as Andy Carroll. Not a good look.

    Roger Johnson cannot defend (see below). Expect him to be overun by Jordan Mutch.

     

    Some stats to get your head around:

    Cardiff have only won one of their last 10 home meetings with West Ham in all competitions (D3 L6).

    West Ham have won their last five meetings with Cardiff City in all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

    The Hammers have dropped 14 points from winning positions this season; more than any other team in the Premier League.

    West Ham have lost their last five Premier League games on the road. The last time they lost six in a row on the road was in 2006 when they lost eight in a row under Alan Pardew (who was sacked at the end of this run)

    Cardiff have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six at home in the league.

    The Welsh side are the only team in the Premier League yet to win a penalty this season. They are yet to concede one as well.

    Seven different players have scored for Cardiff in the league this season; fewer scorers than any other team in the division.

    Of West Ham managers to take control of 5+ Premier League games, only Avram Grant (18.9%) has a lower win percentage than Sam Allardyce (25.9%).

    New Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored 91 goals in 235 Premier League appearances for Manchester United. His last league game for Manchester United came against West Ham United.

    Solskjaer scored seven times against West Ham United in the Premier League; making then his joint-favourite opponents (along with Everton, Tottenham and Charlton).
