Kevin Nolan says West Ham United will be looking to replicate their outstanding home display against Tottenham Hotspur by going on the offensive time and again in 2014/15.

The Hammers ripped into their north London rivals from the kick-off, creating chance after chance and securing a fully deserved and comprehensive 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory in their final home game of the campaign.

With manager Sam Allardyce given a remit by the Board to play attacking, entertaining and winning football next season, captain Nolan insists the Hammers squad will be going out to do exactly that on a regular basis.

"I am sure, without all the injuries next season, we can show you what we have really got," said the skipper. "I think a little taste of that was what we did against Spurs in the last home match and beating a team like that three times in a season.

"We have got to take massive positives from what we have done this year, but we also have to see why we are where we are, as we firmly believe and the Gaffer firmly believes we could have done a lot better - we know that."

Nolan played under Big Sam previously at Bolton Wanderers, where the manager guided the Trotters to eighth place, the League Cup final and European qualification in their third season back in the top flight in 2003/04.

A decade on and the No4 is backing his boss to reproduce a similar level of achievement with West Ham in 2014/15.

"You want to stick with Sam because you have to look at what he has did at Bolton - he took the club from a Championship side to competing in Europe in five years and his record speaks for itself when he is given the time to develop the team the way he wants it to be.

"We have always been playing for him, without a shadow of a doubt, if you ask any of the lads in our dressing room. The Gaffer has got the full backing of every one of us. He has done a magnificent job here over the last three years.

"I have been a part of that with him, so I have seen the difference of when I first walked into the Club and what he has done. The lads and the staff all recognise the magnificent job he has done, so although it hasn't gone to plan this year in respect of what we expected to do, I don't think many other teams would have dealt with that as we did.

"I honestly believe it is because of the characters Sam has produced inside this Club that is why we have been successful in staying in this league."

A busy summer awaits, with the Board, the manager and an overhauled scouting and recruitment department targeting the attacking players that will complement the squad and pose a threat to any Barclays Premier League defence.

"This year has been tough for us all, but we have a team who really want to play well for this Club and want to do well for the Club.

"If Sam is given time with this squad and hopefully, with a few new additions in the summer, it will make a difference to us next year."
