This time last year, with the transfer window in full swing and with  making decent inroads towards improving the newly-appointed Manuel Pellegrini’s squad, you wouldn’t have fond many fans who believed that ageing goalkeeper  would be their signing of the summer. The 34-year-old Pole arrived from relegated Swansea City for £7 million pounds, and while nobody doubted his ability, few Hammers will have expected him to put in the kind of shift that he did last term. Fabianski was so good that he was awarded Hammer of the Year by the club, making the most saves of any goalkeeper in the Premier League in the process. The stopper registered 148 saves during the course of the campaign, not to mention seven clean sheets and one penalty save [Premier League]. Add to that just the one error leading to a goal conceded and it’s easy to see why the Hammers love him so much. He is a well-rounded and dependable keeper, and the only regret they will have is that he wasn’t snapped up sooner. Today marks one year since he signed for the club, and the Irons marked the anniversary with a tweet to their official Twitter account. Fabianski still has an awful lot to give for the Irons, and if he can replicate his form next year, he will be well on his way to becoming a cult hero.
