This season has seen it all, when it comes to West Ham. We have had some great times, as well as sad times. In this article, I will talk about the best and worst moments of our 2013-14 season.

 

Best Moments

Still in the premier league

One of the most important goals when it comes to the premier league, is to be part of it next season. We secured our premier league safety and will be playing in arguably the best league in the world for at least another season.

Once, twice, three times a winner.

I think it is safe to say that our rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur is common knowledge amongst football fans. So for us to beat them three times in one season is a fantastic outcome for all of those associated with the club.

The introduction of Ravel Morrison

Even though a few West Ham fans will disagree with this point – Ravel Morrison still excites me. I think he is one for the future of our club, and we would be silly to let him go on loan again, or even worse, sell him in the transfer window.

 

Worst moments

Sam Allardyce’s decision making

Our gaffer has made some silly decisions during this season. He arrogantly continues to use his right-hand man Kevin Nolan, regardless if he is going through a rough patch or not.

Another bad decision for Mr Allardyce was to go all defensive when Sunderland went down to 10-men. Even though we won the game, I felt demoralised after the game. Sam’s negativity throughout the season has taken a toll on a lot of our fans.

I could go on all day about his decision making this season, but another big one was blowing a majority of our transfer budget on one player, as well as building the team around Andy Carroll.

Sending Ravel Morrison out on loan

Ravel Morrison was in the middle of a quiet spell when Sam Allardyce decided to loan him out to QPR for the remainder of the season. I thought this was the wrong thing to do and we should have continued to allow him to play for us.
