West Ham have enjoyed an exceptional season in the Premier League and they are on course to achieve one of the highest finishes in the club’s history with even a top-four place still possible.
David Moyes’ side started the campaign as one of the favourites for relegation in the Premier League, but that underrated that squad that has been put together quietly over the last few transfer windows. West Ham have started to recruit really sensibly and abandoned their big-name high wages approach for a much more sensible one that is paying off handsomely.
The Hammers should have enough in their squad to have a real go at finishing inside the top six places in the table, which would be a remarkable story considering where they have been the last few years. West Ham are a side full of confidence and with a lot of quality in their squad and they have been one of the best teams to watch this term in the Premier League.
Given what Moyes has achieved this season, we decided to take a look at previous Hammers bosses and ranked their top ten ever managers according to points per game.
However, this list only includes the period from when three points was introduced for a win (1981), so the likes of Ron Greenwood, Ted Fenton, Charlie Paynter, Syd King and John Lyall (whose tenure began before 1981) and others miss out. They are though well worth a mention before we start. Click ‘next’ to scroll through the list…
