West Ham United might have had a tough start to the season but there is a supercomputer that suggests it will keep on getting worse.
The Football Web Pages prediction for the 2022-23 Premier League season is perhaps the most ridiculous you have ever seen with the Irons right at the bottom of the league table after 38 games.
Their supercomputer predicts that David Moyes’ side will score just five goals all season and not win a single game at home and just one on the road.
A better defensive record than Chelsea is something that would be fantastic for the club come to the end of the season but there surely is no world where a team only scores five goals in a season.
One win in 38 games and only 19 points on the board would surely see Moyes sacked if he were even to last that long in this hypothetical world.
But this is a great reminder that football is played on grass and not with data in a computer, no matter how ‘super’ it claims to be.
This also predicts Manchester City and Tottenham to win every single home game and Brighton to finish third so whatever nonsense comes out of this can be taken with an enormous pinch of salt.
It’s not all rosy for West Ham despite that though and the manager has to be very careful to not fall too close to these numbers because he will be very quickly axed if the results do not improve.
Having spent so much money over the summer, there is no longer a hiding place for him and his squad so somebody needs to come out and stand up.
18th in the league is a worrying place to be no matter the time of the season but the quality is there for West Ham to get themselves out of trouble.
