It has been yet another season of inconsistency and disappointment at West Ham.
From the early season turmoil of Slavan Bilic’s reign, to the wholly unpopular appointment of David Moyes, Hammers fans have been left frustrated at goings on both on and off the field.
While the team have improved their performances since the arrival of Moyes, the Hammers are still perilously close to the relegation places, with just four points separating them and Southampton in 18th.
However, there have been a few bright flickers of enjoyment in an otherwise forgettable season in East London.
One of these flickers is Angelo Ogbonna, whose performances have been much improved during this campaign.
Missing just five Premier League games all campaign, the Italian international, who is valued at £8.1million by Transfermarkt, has been rock solid at the heart of defence and has become a firm favourite at the London Stadium.
When a couple of West Ham fan twitter accounts asked fellow supporters who they would consider their Hammer of the Year, the answer was pretty unanimous…
If he was to continue scoring lots of goals for us, Arnautovic should get HOTY.

I would have to give it to Ogbonna. The guy has been world class at the back.
