Tottenham became the first Premier League club in history to not buy a single player in the summer transfer market this year, with many of their rivals spending millions to strengthen their teams.
West Ham in particular spent over £100m on new stars in an attempt to push for European football. The Hammers then went on to lose their first four Premier League fixtures.
West Ham lost at home to Bournemouth and Wolves, as well as an away defeat to Arsenal and a thumping at Anfield.
There was nothing to suggest that the claret and blues had spent well in the summer, and certainly no indication of a top half finish, yet alone European football.
The team have however improved over the past two weeks, with an impressive win against Everton, and a draw yesterday to Chelsea in a game they should have perhaps won.
This slight uptick in form has sparked on West Ham fan to call into Radio 5 Live, claiming that they can push Spurs to a Champions League spot, much to the amusement of the presenters.
Watch the hilarious video below!
