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
