I’ve waited a lot of years to see what we are seeing at West Ham at the moment…these are the best of times and what’s even better is that I genuinely believe they are here to stay!
I said at the start of the season we can finish in the top four and I believe that is what’s going to happen.
It’s fantastic to see the football we are playing. I’m pleased that Sam Allardyce has gone and that an honest man who understands this club and the fans is at the helm. Like everyone else I’m loving Slaven Bilic.
The excuse-making, respecting the point and all that rubbish is gone, instead we have players who can play and a real future around the corner.
Nobody can kid a West Ham fan – they are far too sharp and the vast majority knew what was happening last year was all wrong. They are now getting what they have waited for and there’s no group of fan in the country ho deserve it more.
At their very best the Irons are playing tremendous stuff and that’s down to the boss who has produced such an incredible turnaround in five months.
The best thing he did was to get out of that European qualifying tournament as quickly as he did. He didn’t know the squad or the players but has shown all his quality in bringing them to this point.
Now here we are having sold nearly 40,000 season tickets for next season – I’ll tell you now: We are gonna be bigger than Spurs …..f..k em!
Dimi Payet of course has been utterly extraordinary – what a player but there’s quality right through the squad and I really believe we are looking forward to the best years in our history.
Like I say there’s no fans in the country ho deserve it more or who have waited as long!
I have one lingering worry but I’ll be covering that in a separate piece later in the day although it certainly doesn’t take the shine off what I believe will be a fantastic season.
