Green: Seige mentality spurred us on

As a key figure in the Hammers' revival to remain in the Premiership, goalkeeper Rob Green, who kept five clean sheets in the final eight games of the season, admitted that battling the odds worked in the team's favour.

"No one gave us a chance outside of our own squad and outside the football club," he said. "We'd been written off everywhere. It was an amazing experience to go to Old Trafford and win.

"We needed the points as well, with the way the results went. To win seven out of the last nine games is a fantastic achievement and it kind of shows everyone what we should have done at the start of the season."

Having taken twelve points and kept four clean sheets in four games against Manchester United and Arsenal, Rob reflected on a magnificent achievement.

"I'd like to know who the last team where to do the double over Manchester United and Arsenal in a season," he said. "The lads put their bodies on the line and did everything they could.

"To beat Man U on the final day was fantastic. We scored a special goal at a really good time and it just gave everyone that little push going into the second half and something to defend. We needed that.

"They celebrated winning the League there on Sunday but the feeling we had is equivalent to winning the League, winning the Cup, everything rolled into one. It's the greatest feeling that I've ever had in football.

"It's up there with winning the League with Norwich. To pull it off with nine games to go - when no one gave us a chance - is amazing. The attitude amongst the players has been fantastic to turn it around."

And the 27-year-old keeper is already looking ahead to the next Premiership campaign. "We've shown what we can do in the last nine games," he said. "The lads showed what they could do last season too.

"We've put everything on the line and if we do that for 38 games next season then we've got a chance of doing something good."
