We are all rubbing our eyes in disbelief as to just how good this West Ham team/Squad are and how they seem to improve every match..supporting this club for more than 50 years i cannot say i have ever ever seen a better and more consistent West Ham side than this one over last two seasons and i include the boys of 86 in that.
Supporting this club you expect the odd win against the big boys hopeful of a cup run and occassional final and of course getting battered by other teams home or away but it was West Ham it happens and we were comforted by that nothing flash like the boys from the Kings road no we were/are the working mans club hard graft gritty with some flair but good honest players.
Fast forward to today a manager nobody wanted but by god are we glad we have him now the coaching is top draw and a squad of players who are not sulking not bitching about not playing no a squad of players who all know the boss is the boss what he says goes(Ole jealous much!)but he clearly values all the players just not the starting eleven and he has managed to get rid of the deadwood slowly but surely and no Billy big Bol***ks allowed and oh how we have thrived under this regime.
The board probably cannot believe how lucky they are a manager who will not be pressured into buying for buying sake and yes he can dither and second guess himself and it can be frustrating as a supporter but he has been proven time and time again that he gets it right.
Other teams now dont look at the fixture list and think ahh West Ham next week thats 3 points nope that day has gone we are no longer a soft touch no longer go a goal down and its game over no we have a resilience a belief instilled throughout the squad that home or away we fight till the last second and if beaten we as fans know players have given there all and not just surrendered like many times in the past.
It is taking some getting used to and it is still hard work to think we are now going into games against any opposition with a real chance of getting something from the match how many times in our Hammers supporting lives have we said that.
Crowds filling the ground away support like no other this West Ham keeps pushing on and growing with each passing month and yet the players seem to keep in touch with the supporters and thankful for what we give them.
We are currently the hottest ticket in the premier league right now and the team on everyones lips(unless your a spud lol)this is some Era we fans are living in right now lets enjoy it because who knows how long it will last and when if it will happen again.
