The candidates

Goalkeepers

Jussi Jaaskelainen was between the posts as the Hammers established themselves back in the Premier League following promotion in 2012. The veteran Finn played 61 games for the club across three seasons.  Adrian arrived on a free transfer from Real Betis in the summer of 2013 and had taken Jaaskelainen's place in goal by the end of the season.  He stayed with the Hammers for six years, playing 150 games and twice finishing as Hammer of the Year runner-up.  The current Hammers custodian is Lukasz Fabianski, and he has made his class clear since signing from Swansea in 2018. He was last season's Hammer of the Year.

Defenders

Winston Reid

James Collins was voted into your Team of the 2000s and he's a candidate again after returning to the club from Aston Villa in 2012. He became a key member of the side once again, playing a further 149 times to take his Claret & Blue tally to 214.  Aaron Cresswell was your Hammer of the Year in 2015 and has been a regular at left-back for more than six years now.

Italy defender Angelo Ogbonna signed for West Ham in 2015 and has made in excess of 150 appearances since, while Winston Reid arrived following the 2010 FIFA World Cup and spent the rest of the decade in east London, lifting the Hammer of the Year prize in 2013.  Academy graduate James Tomkins rounds out the choices. He won promotion at Wembley in 2012 and departed for Crystal Palace four years later.

Midfielders

Dimitri Payet

Another Academy product, Jack Collison, is among the choices in midfield. He was a key part of the promotion winning side in 2012, before his career was cruelly cut short by a knee injury. Mohamed Diame signed for Big Sam in the summer of 2012 and was a regular over the next two years, while Stewart Downing also spent two years in Claret & Blue, recapturing some of his best form to earn an England recall in 2014.

Cheikhou Kouyate arrived from Anderlecht in 2014 and became a dominant force in midfield over nearly 150 West Ham games, while Manuel Lanzini came to West Ham for the Farewell Boleyn season and has since gone on to represent Argentina and score more than 20 goals for the club.

Mr West Ham, Mark Noble, has been a fixture in the midfield over the decade and was Hammer of the Year in both 2012 and 2014. His predecessor as skipper, Kevin Nolan, scored plenty of crucial goals as the Hammers claimed their place back at the top table and then made their mark again in the Premier League, while Dimitri Payet was a real star during his 18 months in Claret & Blue. Fifteen goals in 60 games, a Ballon d'Or nomination and a place in the Euro 2016 Team of the Tournament tells the story.

Declan Rice has made similarly impressive strides since coming through the West Ham ranks, and he has already featured in more than a century of games for the club.

Andy Carroll

The 2017 Hammer of the Year, Michail Antonio, kicks off our striking choices. He has shown his versatility during his West Ham career, featuring nearly all over the pitch, but has shown his prowess in front of goal with 30 goals for the club.

Marko Arnautovic followed him as Hammer of the Year and the Austrian netted 22 goals in 65 games for West Ham. Andy Carroll had his injury problems during a seven-year West Ham career, but still had a major impact on the pitch, scoring 34 goals in total.

Carlton Cole scored 15 goals in the 2011/12 promotion campaign, including one in the Play-Off final victory against Blackpool, and by the time he left for Celtic in 2015 had spent nearly ten years in east London.

Last, but not least, Diafra Sakho began his West Ham career in style, scoring on his first six starts for the club. A persistent back injury hampered the rest of his time with the club, but he still managed to score 24 goals in 71 games.
