Big Sam scoffed at the concept of "the West Ham way". He called the fans deluded. Along came Super Slaven Bilic to show everyone what it was. In Goodbye Upton Park, Hello Stratford, Richard Bennett charts the progress of the team game by game in the build-up and throughout the last remarkable season. Every match is covered as the author also reminisces about great games he has watched in the last 58 years, his favourite players and managers, the triumphs and disappointments. He adds his views on the controversial stadium move, match officials, video technology, media pundits, and other topical discussion points in the best Premier League competition in years. An excellent cup run, Premier League club records broken, no trophies, but the consolation of another European campaign in the first season at the new home. With the most attractive football seen in years the West Ham way was back.
