Praise for West Ham's number one

Lukasz Fabianski believes that West Ham United's first team squad is beginning to gel nicely following a difficult start.

The Polish stopper, who has performed superbly since arriving in east London admitted to being delighted at West Ham's unbeaten run, following a tricky start to the campaign.

And he believes that the team should be scared of nobody following Saturday's 3-1 dismantling of former champions Manchester United in Stratford.

"We knew after the performances against Chelsea and Everton that the team was starting to click," the 33-year-old told whufc.com. "If we played with the intensity that we had shown in recent games, we knew that we would have a chance to get something out of the game against Manchester United.

"Everyone can be really happy with what we showed on Saturday. The result, the three points and the performance were all really good. Its a good step forward and were now on an unbeaten run of four games after losing the first four.

"I just hope we continue to grow as a team and as a group. What we got from the last week is the belief we can compete against the top teams in the league. We have to continue to keep focused and work hard and get as much as we can from every single game."

Fabianski has already won over a large proportion of the club's fanbase, including many of those who felt at the time that it was the wrong decision to bench previous first choice 'keeper Adrian.

"I rate Adrian highly but now seeing this guy play regularly, he is clearly the better keeper," bowltorious wrote on the KUMB Forum. "Keep it up Fab!"

"It breaks my heart seeing Adrian on the bench, but this bloke is having a cracker of a season," added KUMB member Jumby. "He made several brilliant saves in the last three league games and looks very composed."

Thoughts echoed by Pob!, who added: "I can understand why some thought Adrian should be first choice when we bought Lukasz in. However I hope they can now see that Lukasz is a different class.

"To be a goalkeeper in a team that gets relegated but still win their player of the season speaks volumes. The guy is brilliant."
