Hammers fans want season over

West Ham

Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

3. Arsenal

West Ham end season facing uncertain summer

Sam Allardyce admits that he will not be returning next season as West Ham's manager.

West Ham ended the season in defeat and without a manager.

The 2-0 loss at St James' Park by a workmanlike but nervous Newcastle side wouldn't have been how Sam Allardyce would have wanted to end his tenure at Upton Park, but it did perhaps underline the problems. Since Christmas, the Hammers have fallen away alarmingly after being in a Champions League place in December. Finishing 12th and still three points away from the magic 50 mark is something that will rankle everyone after the start West...

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jonas Gutierrez (85') Newcastle 2-0 West Ham United
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Moussa Sissoko (54') Newcastle United 1-0 West Ham United

NEWCASTLE, England -- How fitting it was that Jonas Gutierrez lashed home the crucial second goal that put beyond doubt the protection of Newcastle United's Premier League status. In a year without too many positives for the club, his astonishing fight against testicular cancer has been an inspiration. On a day when a hero was needed, he was, in retrospect, the obvious candidate.

The Argentine's strike sealed the win, but there was something else on display at St. James' Park: A glimpse of what life...

Sam Allardyce keen to prove himself and spoil Newcastle survival bid

Sam Allardyce's men will be up for the game against Newcastle.

With the final Premier League relegation spot the only real issue to be decided on the last day of the season, more eyes are likely to be on West Ham's game at St. James' Park on Sunday than anywhere else.

Newcastle need a win to guarantee their place at the top table next season and they probably couldn't ask for better visitors than the Hammers. Sam Allardyce's men have been in a downward spiral since Christmas and the last game of the 2014-15 season is really a meeting between two of the league's...

West Ham remember Cup Winners' Cup glory 50 years on

West Ham won the European Cup Winners Cup at Wembley after beating TSV Munich with two goals from Alan Sealey.

May 19 marks the 50th anniversary of West Ham United's greatest night -- their 2-0 win over TSV Munich 1860 at Wembley in the European Cup Winners' Cup final a feast of attacking football and progressive ideas.

It set the template for England's victory in the World Cup a year later and is lauded as one of English club football's finest moments.

West Ham had won the FA Cup in 1964 with an unconvincing 3-2 win over Second Division Preston North End. Bobby Moore lifted the trophy and the victory allowed...

Late Everton loss shows West Ham can't look to Europe with hope

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce bemoans not being given a penalty kick and heaps praise on Leon Osman.

West Ham finished the league season at Upton Park in the same way they started it back in August. In the opening game of the campaign, the Hammers lost 1-0 to Spurs following an injury time winner. In going down to a 93rd minute strike against Everton, the Hammers have highlighted a pattern that has repeated itself too often in the intervening period.

It would be a tad harsh to suggest that conceding late goals has defined West Ham's season, but Sam Allardyce could have counted on another six to...
