I think we can all agree that, with 20 points on the board from our first 11 games, West Ham have enjoyed a fantastic start to the season. Slaven Bilic has masterminded some amazing victories, notably at Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and best of all at home to Chelsea.
Our new signings Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses have all enjoyed bright starts to their careers in London and the club are looking forward to moving to the Olympic Stadium — which promises to be a watershed moment in the club’s history. However, now is not the time to pat ourselves on the back or be complacent. If you cast your mind back 12 months we were in a similar position and were even in the top four at Christmas.
No one wants to see us repeat last season’s slump so it is vital the club strengthen in the January transfer window. Other clubs around us will do the same and bringing in one or two could be the difference between a good season and a great one.
