I said at the start of the season we could grab a Champions League spot and I see absolutely no reason to change my mind now.
But let me say at the outset – Slaven Bilic has been incredible… remarkable and I love love love what’s happening at my club.
Every expectation has been passed and now we wait for the final verdict – are we good enough for the Champions League? I really think we are.
However, as to the bigger question: Is this team better than the Boys of 86 …. Eff off LOL! Seriously, I’ll tell yer this – it would be one hell of a game.
Everything is possible as we reach the end of the season because of one thing – Sakho is back and make no mistake he IS the No1 striker.
No disrespect to Andy Carroll or Enner Valencia but they really don’t have the pace and movement of this guy. He’s brilliant and with him in the team we can go anywhere as favourites.
I know what it must be like playing in that team with Dimi Payet around because I had Alan Devonshire. Those sort of players make it easy for strikers. Payet, like Dev, is pure class and if I was part of this squad I’d be gagging to get out there.
The excitement in the air is incredible and that’s shown in us having sold 40,000 odd season tickets for the Olympic Stadium which is remarkable.
You can put that all down to the owners who have shown real vision and put their money where their mouths are.
There has never been a time like this in Hammers history and I personally thank everybody involved. It’s brilliant – absolutely brilliant!
Frankie will be bring his views on the FA Cup clash at Manchester United later this week.
