Chadwell Chatter - Adrian

Adrian looks back at a memorable milestone for the Club and previews the big London derby against Arsenal


It was a special moment for me to celebrate 100 games for West Ham last weekend and it was a great feeling.

I feel so proud to have reach that number and I always try to show my character and performances on the pitch and it is great to have the support of everyone at the Club.

I can still think back to my first game when I played against Manchester United and made my first save to deny Tom Cleverley in the opening two minutes.

From the first game I have tried to help my team-mates in every game that we play and to give my best for the Club.

I never imagined when I first signed that I would have such a strong connection with the fans.

I arrived from Spain but I feel very proud of this relationship and I know the supporters like a player who has a big character and gives everything on the pitch. I try to show this in every game.

When I look back at my games I have a lot of good memories but the ones that stand out are the draw we had against Chelsea when I made 39 saves to stop them scoring and we were in a bad situation at that moment.

But we managed to come away with a crucial point and that was one of my best games for West Ham. I remember many games but this was one of the biggest at Stamford Bridge.

It was a nice moment for me to hand a shirt to our oldest support Mabel who is 100 before the Crystal Palace game last Saturday.

She is a proper West Ham fan. She is so lucky to be alive for 100 years and still enjoys coming to the games.

I hope to get to a similar age and still love the game like she does! It was a great moment to meet her.

We are now preparing for another big game against Arsenal on Saturday and the situation is in our hands as we look to qualify for a European place next season.

We are still showing the same performances that we showed at the start of the season and we have a great chance.

We have seven games to go and the FA Cup as well and we need to give 150 per cent in every game to finish well.

We believe we can win all the games and will continue to fight until the end. We deserved more points in the last game against Palace and I feel we have a great chance to get a victory against Arsenal on Saturday.

We are playing at home and want to stay in the top five in the table. We remember the first game because we played so well, kept a clean sheet and got the three points at Emirates Stadium.

They will hopefully come to the Boleyn Ground a little bit afraid because we are playing so well and our position in the table.

Enjoy the game on Saturday.
