The 2009/2010 season was all about these five major incidents:
2. Scott Parker's Wigan rocket
Scott Parker virtually put on a superhuman effort all season long to ensure that West Ham did not suffer a relegation heartache. It was fitting that he, of all players, should be the one to score the match winning goal in a 3-2 win against Wigan. His efforts were recognized by Don Fabio and Scott Parker captured a place in England's provisional World Cup squad. His commitment and enthusiasm will surely boost England's chances of World Cup glory.
3. Constant expectation of "West Ham may have turned the corner"
As mentioned, it was a season of pure underachievement. Knocked out early from the domestic cups, West Ham struggled in the Premier League from the start. We had a six match losing streak, a nine match winless streak and could not muster more than 2 wins in a row all season. There were times in the season when there was a wave of optimism, talks of "having turned the corner" but time and again this enthusiasm was knocked back by crippling defeats.
Come On You Irons!
