Allardyce was speaking after watching his side beat Reading 4-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Kevin Nolan.

The West Ham boss felt that the game reflected a fantastic season for the club, with the Hammers able to establish a top-half finish in their first year back in the top flight.

"It was a fantastic end of the season and fantastic entertainment value," Allardyce said.

"Just a great end to a very good season. It is great to see the players and fans appreciate what they have done for each other this season.

"We had a full house again, and it gives for a good summer for us all. We can look back on this season with great fondness in what we have done and achieved."

Speaking regarding the reasons for the side's successful adaptation to the Premier League, Allardyce said: "We have a disciplined team with good ethics and good basics, and we have only lost four games at home, all to teams in the top seven."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
