West Ham Plan For The Future

West Ham commercial director, Scott Duxbury outlined the club's plans on Saturday. The good news is that the club wants success and it seems that they are prepared to invest to achieve that.

"We've clearly got to invest in the playing squad and keep pushing the Club forward, but there is no reason why we can't move on from here and enjoy regular UEFA Cup football, and have a long-term target - if not medium-term - of playing in the Champions League.

"I don't think anyone should be ridiculed for aiming to reach the top and, in my opinion, that is where this Club is heading. Everything about this Club is geared towards success. People talk about how quickly we have gained success this season and, yes, it is fairly unusual for it to happen so quickly, but our position shouldn't be an unusual situation for a Club like West Ham United.

"We should be in the top 10 of the Premiership, we should be in FA Cup finals, and we should be playing European football. Going forward, they should be regular targets for us and we are committed to providing the supporters with more of the wonderful occasions they will experience at the Millennium Stadium today."

We have a young, ambitious manager and team. The performance on Saturday proved that on our day we are as good as anyone in the Premiership. So as long as West Ham can strengthen the squad in a few areas next season should be even more successful.

Encouraging words, yes. But haven't we heard this before?
Let's see the board put its money where its mouth is.
I will not hold my breath.
