Obinna thinks Hammer time is coming

Victor Obinna maintains West Ham's time is coming - but would take a bad team performance if it meant three points.

The Hammers are rooted to the foot of the Barclays Premier League following just one win from 13 matches.

Next up is a trip to Liverpool, and Obinna feels the Irons are not far away from getting everything together, telling WHUTV: "We have to speak to ourselves and try to improve.

"We can all say that we play good football, but when you play good football and you don't win, sometimes it doesn't work. Sometimes you have to play badly and win and I believe our time is coming."

West Ham were somewhat unfortunate not to be given at least two penalties by referee Kevin Friend during the first half of their recent draw against Blackpool, one when Obinna's goalbound effort struck Craig Cathcart on the arm.

The striker, however, maintained even though everything may appear to be against the Irons, the squad must keep focused.

"Things like this do happen. Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you have to play simple to be able to score," he said.

"When things are like this, it's getting bad, but we have to show that our heads are high, we are more united and if we speak to ourselves mentally we will win games and we will be okay."

Obinna challenged his team-mates to provide the perfect response at Anfield.

He said: "It is about mental stuff and we just have to psyche ourselves up, speak more to ourselves, be more united and we are definitely going to get out of this place."
