It is about time football pundits and the media at large gave West Ham credit for what they have achieved this season.
Large parts of the media love to knock West Ham when they are down or there is a bad news story but they seem reluctant to pat them on the back and say well done.
Even match of the day pundits seem to struggle to anything more than a couple of words before concentrating on describing the woes on the major teams we have beaten.
Leicester City on the other hand seem to get all the praise and the credit from the same people. While there is no doubt Leicester have also had a great start to the season and remain the only ‘top six’ to beat us this season it could be argued that our opposition has been much stronger than their’s. Leicester’s wins have come against a poor Sunderland, Villa, Norwich and Palace in addition to ourselves.
Would it hurtl the media to pat West Ham on the back occasionally and say well done and give credit where it is due?
