Ten pictures that sum up West Ham’s season so far
West Ham fans have had to ensure a tough season at the London Stadium so far. Far from being a new era of success for the club that many expected, Slaven Bilic’s side have failed to follow up the progress shown last year with a meaningful step along the path this season.
At points, it has looked like they may slip into a relegation fight but have managed to hoist themselves up beyond that mess and currently sit seven points clear of the bottom three.
Those are slim margins though and there’s no room for complacency in the second half of the season. A sustained string of decent results should see them clear of any danger, though.
European qualification through the league will be a step beyond this season so an FA Cup run wouldn’t go amiss either.
If Bilic can have a strong transfer window and add some quality into key areas, the season may not end up being a bust and they could find that forward momentum once again.
