In a surprise result, nearly 56% of West Ham supporters say they are happy with the progress the Hammers have made this season despite picking up just 12 points from 12 Premier League games.
In a Claret and Hugh poll of 1,500 readers, 839 (55.93%) said they were happy with the progress made by Manuel Pellegrini and his £100m of new summer recruits with almost a third of the season gone. In contrast, 661 (44.07%) of supporters disagreed with the statement saying they weren’t impressed with the progress so far by the Chilean manager who signed a three-year contract with the Irons last summer.
Back in August before the Premier League season kicked off, less than 5% of a Claret and Hugh poll believed the Hammers could finish in the top eight while 18% said West Ham could finish in the top ten, over 20% said top twelve and another 22% said top fourteen for the Irons.
Manuel Pellegrini seems to have the backing of the majority of West Ham supporters that he doing a good job.
