I want to start by wishing a happy and healthy New Year to all of our supporters and hope we can secure another big victory against Leicester on Saturday.
2016 has been a memorable year for everyone connected with West Ham United and it was fitting that we were able to celebrate such a big 12 months, 50 years on from when Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup for England.
It was sad for us to leave the Boleyn Ground where the memories will never be forgotten, but we left with a famous victory over Manchester United in the final ever game and then had a memorable closing ceremony.
We have now moved onto a new adventure and the majority of our fans see it as a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The Stadium is renowned throughout the world and we hope to become the biggest supported club in London.
I remember all my life when we were always the fourth club in the capital, but we have taken steps to change that and challenge our three biggest rivals in London.
We are just outside the top half of the table and the confidence is flooding back into the squad. We can now challenge once again.
To go on an unbeaten run in the Premier League and win three consecutive games changes everything - the mood around the camp, the league position and the fans are a lot more optimistic.
Key players returning from injury have also helped us and it is no coincidence that the return of Andy Carroll over the last four games has contributed to this impressive run of form.
We all know what Andy brings to the team and I was so pleased to see him get on the scoresheet. He is looking back to his best and we hope he will score even more goals in the coming weeks and months.

I was also delighted to see Andre Ayew score his first goal for the Club. It takes time to build up your match fitness and you can see that he is getting stronger all the time and the quality he has.
We have to remember that Andre is the Club's record signing and he is a very good player with Premier League experience.
It is a big blow for us to be losing him now to the Africa Cup of Nations but we knew the situation when we signed him. We also lose Cheikhou Kouyate and Sofiane Feghouli and we are going to miss them, but a lot of clubs will face the same situation.
All three players still have a part to play before they leave when we play Leicester City and Manchester United and we hope to continue this winning run.
There was never any question of the players’ commitment in wanting to turn our season around and you could see from Winston Reid's goal against Swansea the passion and desire that our players have at the moment.
Winston was determined to win the ball more than the two defenders around him and I endorse what Alan Shearer said about him on Match of the Day. It shows what it means to the players.
We are beginning to look up now and there is no reason why we cannot get another positive result against Leicester on Saturday.
It was a remarkable story seeing them win the title last season and it was a fairytale outcome.
They certainly didn't buy the league and they won it because of their sheer determination and everything came right for them. It is why the Premier League is the best in the world.
We are coming up against a different type of Leicester team this season as they are fighting to move clear of the bottom three and it will be another tough game.
But our confidence is sky high and we are benefitting from a resurgence around the whole football club. It has been an amazing transformation.
I want to wish all our fans who are making the trip to the King Power Stadium a safe journey and let's hope we can end 2016 with another positive result and keep our unbeaten run going as we head into the New Year.
