West Ham United legend Brian Dear is excited about developments at the club this year.
The Academy product and 1965 European Cup Winners' Cup winner is a regular visitor to the Boleyn Ground.
"We're still in the Barclays Premier League and it's the only place to be," the 69-year-old told whufc.com. "When we go to the Olympic Stadium, it's imperative we go there as a Premier League side. Sam Allardyce has done a good job this year. We play to our strengths and tenth place is great.
"Sam's a nice man and he contributes to the Bobby Moore Fund. He's very involved with Stephanie Moore with the charity. He's made his mark on West Ham and I think he'll be OK.
"The Club has raised nearly £60,000 this year and that's through the players and other initiatives. Sam donates the proceeds from his Evening Standard column, which a lot of people don't know about, but that's how strong they are in support of Bobby's Fund. All power to them and long may it continue."
