There was a lot of praise of West Ham on Sunday night after they managed to climb to third in the table following a 3-1 win against Swansea.
Sam Allardyce was under pressure last season, with many West Ham fans demanding he left. Chairman David Gold kept faith in his manager though and this faith has been rewarded with West Ham now in the top three of the division.
He managed to lead his team to another three points against an impressive Swansea side.

My man Carl Jenkinson sorted Montero out that's for sure! Well played lad

Amazing that Carl Jenkinson is having a blinder playing for 3rd placed West Ham and we're scratching our bollocks looking for fit defenders.

Re last RT: Sam Allardyce deserved the criticism then as much as he deserves the praise now.

How bad's the premier league this season? West Ham are 3rd and Stewart Downing is looking better than Eriksen, Cazorla & Mata combined.

West Ham are playing better football than Liverpool this season.

West Ham and Swansea play far better football than us. What a time to be dead. 🙂

How good was that! Andy Carroll was quite simply brilliant today! Won everything in the air. Song showed his class and centre backs so solid

West ham look class this year if Carroll start scoring consistently they have 3 class strikers
