Hammers fans give their verdicts on the final weekend of the Championship

West Ham fans discuss all things Hammers with our correspondent Nathaniel John.

This week, Hammers reveal whether it is blind optimism to think Coventry can get a result at Southampton and that West Ham can still get automatic promotion.

It is blind optimism, but isn’t that what we West Ham fans do the best? You never know! – @Dave_Goodger

Stranger things have happened! We need a miracle in terms of Coventry beating Saints. I just hope the pressure gets to them – @KwamsMoriarty

There is no other option but to keep the faith while there is a chance. Never accept second best – @pudderst

It is very optimistic but who expected Wigan to beat Arsenal at the Emirates? You never know but it will be a miracle – @jonlow74

We can only do our part. The rest is out of our hands – @richdenm

Saints hold an enormous amount of pressure so anything could happen. After the Leicester result, I expect a big West Ham win – @TheRealBelton

Hopefully Coventry will watch the 1987 FA Cup final highlights as inspiration before their game. Perhaps a motivational speech from Jimmy Hill too? – @niall_mcdonald

Coventry have nothing to lose and can maybe play with some freedom whereas Southampton have a lot to lose and nerves could effect how they play – @MarkWHUFC

I hope that Coventry were watching Chelsea on Tuesday night and saw how to defend. Anything can happen in football... – @Nigel_Haywood2

Tuesday night’s result in Barcelona just goes to show that Saturday is not a given for Southampton! – @MrRuz

Football is a funny old game and wouldn’t it be so typical of West Ham to sneak automatic promotion on the last day. Would be harsh on the Saints, though – @Neil_McDonald45

All we can do is concentrate on ourselves first and foremost. Even if we don’t go up automatically, it is imperative that we keep the winning

mentality – @Sarah_Smudner1

I’m happy that we didn’t bottle it at Leicester on Monday night, something the old West Ham would have done. It sure makes Saturday exciting though! – @DaveyJones55

I fear that the play-offs beckon for us but it isn’t the end of the world as hopefully it will provide us fans with a day out at Wembley – @LewisOkunga

I honestly think that the Saints will slip up. FIngers crossed! – @Katie_Morgan34
