Aaron Cresswell is Hammer of the Year

At least the new PM is a Hammers' fan (possibly)… and congratulations to Aaron Cresswell on winning the other election, the Hammer of the Year award. At around £3 million he was a steal from Ipswich and is proof that bargains are to be found in the Championship. And let's give Sam Allardyce credit too for signing him. Last season we were relying on the ageing George McCartney, right-footed Joey O'Brien and Matt Taylor for left backs. He's had a very consistent season, proving he can both defend and get forward with a stream of crosses. Another bonus is that he is now taking fantastic free kicks and scored a stunner against Stoke City, and almost repeated it at QPR. Running Aaron close must have been Adrian who has been excellent all season and a real character too, while Diafra Sakho has proved another bargain with a very creditable 13 goals. Now all we have to do is keep Cresswell away from Chelsea and Man City…
