Barrera: Hammers can avoid the drop

The Hammers have endured a torrid opening to the 2010/11 campaign,

losing their first two Premier League fixtures. They are one of

just three clubs yet to put a point on the board, with Stoke and

Wigan having also stumbled out of the blocks. This was supposed to

be the season West Ham broke back into the top half of the table,

having finally established stability away from the field. However,

the arrivals of Avram Grant and co-owners David Sullivan and David

Gold are yet to have the desired impact and the club must be wary

of being cast adrift too soon. Mexican winger Barrera, who moved to

Upton Park over the summer, has full faith in the Hammers’ ability

to clamber out of the bottom three and insists there is no need to

panic just yet. “West Ham have good players, so I believe in the

team,” said the 23-year-old winger. “The scores don’t reflect what

has happened on the pitch and I’m sure in the coming weeks we will

be better.”
