Hammers fans favour a Wembley date with Blackpool

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

Join in the discussion on Twitter @Nathaniel_John. This week, Hammers reveal their thoughts on the play-off final and which team they would rather play.

We can play either team in the final! I have no fear! – @lewis100985

I would definitely prefer to play Blackpool. At least they try and play football on the floor. All Birmingham do is hoof it – they are a physical, horrible talentless team with Marlon King – @thedarkoutsider

We’ve been better against Blackpool this year but I don’t want to upset Ian Holloway, so would prefer to beat Birmingham in the final – @LucianGreen

I’d prefer to play Blackpool, we have confidence against them after the league games this season. Either way, I think it’s going to be a great day! – @popey75

For a club like ours we don’t get a chance like this every year so it is a huge occasion for us. I’d prefer us to play Blackpool but we will see – @GeoffGaler

We need to purely focus on putting in a performance on the day that with a little luck will hopefully see us home – @WHUFCGeezer

I would prefer to play Blackpool but think we can beat either team, we are away from home after all – @joepsherry

Who we played better against months ago matters little now. All we can worry about is how we play on the day. Another performance like Monday’s and we will be in the Premier League next season. Fact! – @WayneSlemmans

There has been a whole generation of Hammers that have never been to Wembley and I believe that we have come good at the right time. The two Cardiff performances have filled me with confidence –@Sarah_Underwood33

Regardless of the result it will be so good to see West Ham play at Wembley! I think we will win though no matter who we are playing – @Dave_Browne00

We shouldn’t be worrying about what team we will be playing, they will be more worried about us. We will be favourites again and I think we will deliver again just like we did against Cardiff – @Leerichardson_

Come on you Irons! Biggest game in the club’s recent history and I really can’t wait! I wish it was tomorrow and the nerves are building already – @Nicholassullivan1

This team just doesn’t look like losing a game at the moment which is strange thing to say about a West Ham side given how we have performed over the last few years! Time for our moment in the spotlight now – @StephenWhitelock74
