Our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are certainly happy that this season is over with as they can now to begin to forget about it.
Indeed, the club really did have a struggle of a campaign to go through in 2016/17 but at least managed to steer clear of relegation.
Certainly, that fight lower down the league was a very close one with just a handful of points separating many sides in the table.
And, in light of that and the win over Burnley yesterday, the Hammers ended up finishing 11th in the league – something that doesn’t look too bad at all.
Indeed, Jack Sullivan tweeted about just that though some fans were still quick to point out that it’s still not been a good year with the best of the reaction below:
Really good win today, and a great way to end the season ! Considering how hard the season has been to finish 11th isn’t bad at all #irons

@jsullivanwhu Yeah, we only got thrashed 4 or 5 times, so not bad at all.

@jsullivanwhu Really ?? How about spending a bit of money so we don’t have a “hard” season in the coming one

@jsullivanwhu For what we started with, I think Bilic done a fantastic job to get us 11th, now get the signings we need done and move onto next season

@jsullivanwhu Woeful & instantly forgettable season, but you can dress it up how you like!

@jsullivanwhu lets be honest 11th flatters us. Need big investment this summer

@jsullivanwhu 11th isn’t bad, but 45 points isn’t good enough.
