Do West Ham’s £15.5 million duo rank as the Hammers greatest?


After looking at the goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders that made history in 1999 by inspiring West Ham to a 5th place Premier League finish and those that turned up trumps once again in 2002 when we finished 7th. It’s time now to look at the strikers that scored the goals to power us into the heights of the top 7 then, and now. Following the comparison between forwards is my finalised selected squad of the best XI based on players involved in the two past and one present successful season – players that have been selected are the ones that made the most appearances in the Premier League that season in their respective position.

    Well push now comes to shove West Ham, as if you really want to challenge for those European qualification places then you simply cannot afford to not go on a winning run now. If we could go on a winning run now of say 3 Premier League games, then with 42 points on the board after 24 games I’d say we’d have a fair chance of getting something from this season with the then remaining 14 games left. If we don’t get a good haul of points after the next 3 Premier League games? Then the chance may be lost. We need a game a goal Sakho to return from injury and it would also help if Carroll can start getting what he is paid for, being £100,000 per week, to get a goal a game. If those 2 players can bring us 2 goals between them a game, and maybe a goal every 2 games from Valencia, then we would qualify for Europe no problems, but it just has to start happening otherwise we’ll be looking at our final season at the Boleyn, in which to try and qualify for European competition in, to co-inside with our move into the Olympic stadium, and with a stadium which housed 80,000 during the Olympics, there is no reason, in the future, that we cannot house more than Manchester United.

    I think Cottee and Mc Avennie are the best we’ve had. They will take some beating in West Ham’s history.
