We are only one point better off than last season this time, yet our fortunes look so much brighter. Everything seems to be going our way. Results might not be as good as Leicester but our performances have been filled with character and passion.
Our football on the field have been a joy to watch. We are playing amazing football considering all the key injuries that we’ve had to deal with. Our recent transfer business reflects our intent and everything seems to points toward a new phase of glory for our club.
The January transfer window was rather quiet but it was to be expected after we’ve done most of our business in the summer. The singing of Sam Byram is evident of our progress. Everton basically had him and yet he jumped at the first opportunity to join our claret and blue juggernaut. The Eminike loan signing was another key moment in our transfer dealings with Bilic showing he is willing to let his own favorite son Jelavic go in favour of progress.
The two Daves showed our rivals how to treat your best player, by offering him a deserved new deal when the chinese came calling with a 38m pound bid. Levy would have cashed in yet our owners ensured our new superstar gets a massive pay hike to show his worth.
Our FA cup win over Liverpool have ensured we will get a solid cup run! Our boys backed it up with an amazing 5 -1 comeback win against Blackburn. I’ve not seen a West Ham squad playing with so much freedom and camaraderie. Our manager, coaches, captain and owners are fans. It all just adds to the euphoria that we are all experiencing.
Bilic has rightfully said that a big club does not get its status from having a big stadium but rather it’s a combination of a lot of things. things are definitely coming together for an epic season finale at the Boleyn. We are pushing for a top 4 spot and still fighting in the Cup!
We’ve been voted the most improved team in Europe over the past 5 years, currently ranked 20th wealthiest club in the world and have made so many strides from the flakey team who got relegated a few seasons back.
I became a West Ham supporter because it’s so much Moore than just a football club. I’ve never really experienced the glory seasons in years gone by and have only seen patches of promise to fade and die. This is the first time I’ve experienced any sort of optimism supporting my beloved Hammers. It will definitely be a difficult thing moving away from Upton Park, but i would be lying if I said I don’t look forward to seeing 60k passionate Hammer fans filling the Olympic Stadium.
Onwards and upwards we go!
