A convincing 3-1 win, against Everton this afternoon, meant that West Ham United have taken seven points from the last nine available.  That is more like qualifying for Europe form rather than falling through the relegation trap-door form.

But, unfortunately, a season isn’t three games long, it’s currently thirty-eight and it has been the Hammers overall form that has seen this season be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

However, the jubilant scenes after the final whistle perhaps indicated that the toxic atmosphere we witnessed after being crushed 3-0 at home, by Burnley, were a distant memory.

This summer we’ll see changes at the club, one of them could be a new manager with nobody knowing if David Moyes will be rewarded for his work with a long-term deal.

Elsewhere, it is essential that the club seek to hold on to their better players and don’t resort to that old trait of being a selling club.

This summer we’re expecting several new arrivals, the quality of which will indicate the direction the club could be heading in.

It’s been a difficult season, but like so many others I can’t wait for the next one, can you?
