Slater hails Hammers progress

Former West Ham United winger Stuart Slater believes Sam Allardyce's men have a solid foundation from which to build for next season.

The Hammers finished tenth in their first season back in the Barclays Premier League - an achievement which Slater, who also played for Celtic, Ipswich Town and Watford in his career, says deserves recognition.

Now Slater is confident that progress can continue as West Ham begin the three-year countdown towards playing in the Olympic Stadium.

"I think at the start of the season, we'd have taken where we finished," Slater told West Ham TV.

"We had some good games here, obviously Sam has built a side that challenged, so reflecting on the season, it has been a good one.

"The home form has been excellent and the support are great here. If you can get things right here, the crowd get behind you and it's an extra player, as we found out when we used to play.

"The home form was key, Carroll coming back fit and playing a big part too. We've made some good signings this season.

"You'd like to think that next year is another chance to consolidate in the Premier League. If that's the standard this year, you'd like to go a little higher next season.

"WIth the Olympic Stadium in mind as well, you might be able to attract a few players. It's an attractive proposition for players to come here."
