Merry Christmas from fourth place!

SamASam Allardce has given the fans a near perfect Christmas present by sending them off for their holidays in fourth place.

After the victory over Leicester the Irons boss beamed: “Being fourth in the Premier League is a Christmas present for everybody at West Ham.

“And having 31 points before Christmas is a pretty major achievement for us.”

Andy Carrolland Stewart Downing wrapped up the points with a goal apiece and Allardyce saId:  “There is no doubt we deserved to win with the quality finishes from Andy and Stewart.

“It was a very composed finish from Andy in a one-on-one. I was pleased he put that in after he missed an even easier chance just before that.

“And Stewart is one of the best attacking players in the Premier League the way he is playing and he is getting goals on the back of that.

“He was our most creative and best player by far, he’s been a revelation for us — and his goal was outstanding. So this is a very big win for us before we have Chelsea next.”

  1. It’s a revelation this season – feels great to be in this position by Christmas.

    I’ll admit it – if it had been me I’d have got rid of BFS – but hey, what do I know – credit to the two David’s for sticking by him!

    Happy Christmas a very prosperous New Year to you and yours – COYI

  2. Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle with no fuss
    In a West Ham open bus
    On the fields we play
    Scoring all the way
    Bubbles rising high
    Dreaming castles sigh
    What fun it is to watch and sing
    This football song tonight!
