Pre-West Ham Overnight Open Thread

This happened last time. - Clive Brunskill

Five questions to pass the time as we wait for kickoff from Upton Park.

1) Will Mamadou Sakho be brought in to counter the aerial threat of Andy Carroll and/or due to any potential lasting injury to Daniel Agger?

2) Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen, or Jordan Henderson or Joe Allen?

3) Does Philippe Coutinho get a rest?

4) Do either of Victor Moses or Luis Alberto make the bench?

5) Final score?

Bonus: Upton Park is also known as the Boleyn Ground owing to its being built on grounds that have a tenuous connection to Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII. Contrary to popular belief, Henry VIII only had six wives rather than eight, and of the six, only* two were executed by ol' Hank. For the history buffs, who is your favourite English monarch in history?

* "Only" is a relative term here, obviously.
