A message of thanks from Alan Pardew

West Ham United would like to thank all supporters who have sent in messages of congratulations following our FA Cup semi-final win over Middlesbrough last weekend.

The Boleyn Ground offices and Chadwell Heath training headquarters have been inundated with letters and emails from our jubilant fans and, as it will be impossible to reply to each and every one personally, manager Alan Pardew would like to pass on our thanks and appreciation here.

Pards says: "We have been overwhelmed by the messages of congratulations from our fans and, on behalf of the players and staff here, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the trouble and time to write to us - it means a lot and we are determined to give our wonderful supporters another victorious day in Cardiff on May 13."
