West Ham Star Snaps up Top Music Award!!!

What a season it almost was.... after all the deflationary emotions, Hammers fans can reflect upon what was overall a strong showing during the 2014-5 season during which a host of new stars emerged to add considerable strength and guile to the squad as the curve of upwards progression continued. This is what a realistic observer would prescribe for any side looking to make the transition from a relegation yoyo outfit to regular occupier of the top half of the world's toughest league. For sure, we all want instant success, but that is just not realistic. Compare this squad with the one that was promoted three years ago.....need we say more?
Anyhooooo...At VERYWESTHAM we have been hard at it adjudicating upon our annual Footie-musac awards for 2014-5 and after much deliberation, here are the results of the VWH jury...

First up, the Ian Dury "Reasons to be cheerful award" which goes to the simply splendid Cheik Kouyate for an endless series of top class performances that give us confidence that our midfield can compete with just about anybody when needed.

Sticking with the dependable, Goalkeeper Adrian takes the Bill Wither's "Lean on me" prize - just pipping James Collins who slipped off the radar due to a late season injury during which Adrian set a new Premiership record with three consecutive penalty saves to ad to his Cup heroics against Everton where he saved and scored the crucial two final penalties. Sorry Ginge!

More frustratingly, Andy Carroll receives the 'excellent when available'  award designated by Mr Bragg's classic "Between the wars". Who can forget the wondergoal against Swansea.....more please next year.

Continuing with the theme of frustration, Morgan Amalfitano might well moan that he should have been given more starts given his excellent showings in so many matches as a substitute. For him, the Arctic Monkey award with "Why'd you only call me when you're high?".

But back to brilliance, and free kick of the year (Echo's "Over the wall") goes to Aaron Cresswell for his recent strike against Stoke City.

While the frighteningly scary offensive threat award goes to the prolific Diafra Sakho - but again can we have less injuries and more game time next year please!



At the other end of the scale of emotions, Modi Maiga gets the Depeche mode award...Last Summer we made a series of fantastic signings but we should not forget that the efforts of previous years have not been so positive. 

And finally, a few cautionary awards...

Are you listening Aaron Cresswell?


C'mon Jenks!
