Supporters not confident of another FA Cup win

On the fortieth anniversary of West Ham’s FA Cup win over Arsenal, we asked Claret and Hugh readers when we might see another FA Cup victory.

Nearly 24% of those who voted said we will never win the FA Cup again with 20% saying we can manage that feat again within the next twenty years, a further 20% of readers suggested it was doable in the next ten years to record our fourth FA Cup victory.

15%  of those who of the many hundreds who voted said it was possible in the next five years while a pessimistic group of 11% said it could take up 50 years to win again.

6% said we might need to wait thirty years with 3% saying another forty years and the remaining optimistic 2% saying next season.

As the saying goes never say never, who saw the FA Cup final against Liverpool coming in 2006! No-one!

Next season could be our year assuming it is played, that is the beauty of the FA Cup and why winning it is so special.
