West Ham’s season isn’t quite what the fans would have hoped it would be but the Hammers still have some glimpses of sunshine this season, which they could build upon to achieve some success.
The Hammers secured a point at Old Trafford yesterday which, although not the mighty feat it used to be, was a superb result for Slaven Bilic’s side- and it’s given the Croatian a nice piece of history to add to his accolade list.
12 – Slaven Bilic is the 12th manager to be unbeaten in his first three Premier League meetings with Manchester United. Grind.

Unbeaten in his first three Premier League meetings with Manchester United, Bilic can boast an achievement that only eleven other managers can rival but, given West Ham’s precarious league position, it won’t stand for much in the boss’ eyes.
With Swansea, Hull, Middlesbrough and Leicester around West Ham all picking up points this weekend, the Hammers’ result at Old Trafford isn’t as great as it could have been- but it’s at least something to build upon.
