Who is your Hammer of the year?

We are getting to that point of the season when the club usually asks supporters to choose their Hammer of the year The inaugural Hammer of the year award  in 1958 coincided with West Ham winning the Division Two title and clinching promotion to the top tier. For the first award the selection of the winner was chosen by the Stratford Express newspaper. From 1959 onwards the Hammer fans voted for their favourite player. Until recently the trophy was presented by the West Ham United Supporters’ Club which was retained in their clubhouse at castle street but recent years it has been part of an awards dinner Last season the Hammer of the year selected by supporters was Michail Antonio with Manuel Lanzini picking up the runner-up spot.

  1. There is no standout player and general effort would suggest there being no HOTY this season.

  2. I can not see any player has even performed sufficiently, let alone contributed something to warrant praise. The award should be cancelled this year out of repsect to the fans. The palyers themselves should be calling for this. The same applies to the lap of homour at the end of the season. Enough said.

  3. Arnie for me. He needs our love.
