West Ham have offered the BBC pundit a temporary truce!

West Ham United have really taken advantage of Mark Lawrenson's biased predictions well.

Indeed, the fact the BBC pundit constantly backs against the Hammers has irritated fans over the years.

But the club themselves - and, mainly, their official Twitter account - have made the most of it and got some social media credit & publicity out of it.

Lawrenson finally got a West Ham prediction right this week - with his bias now exposed, he wouldn't be foolish enough to go for an Aston Villa win at Upton Park - and the Hammers' social media people have joked with the pundit as a result.

They are taking the opportunity to call a truce with Lawro for World Cancer Day, a very good cause.

Even Richard Keys has recently started to praise West Ham, which just goes to show how far they are going to win over their critics.

Give it time and Lawrenson could be predicting a Hammers win every day of the week!
