It’s an exciting time to be a West Ham fan.

Yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Man City was one of the best games of football we’ve witness at the Boleyn Ground for some time. We didn’t win, but we probably should have and the fact we were disappointed not to have done so at the full time whistle shows how far we’ve come in such a short space of time.

There were so many positives to take from the game, most notably the introduction of January signing Sam Byram.

After Carl Jenkinson had a shocking opening 10 minutes, in which he lost possession easily, gave away a penalty and then got injured, Byram was handed his debut a lot earlier than we all expected.

To be thrown in to a game being played at that pace, with some of the world’s best footballers already on the pitch, Byram must’ve been a nervous wreck. But if he was, he certainly didn’t show it.

Instead he was calm, composed and solid in defence, and looked as if he’d been playing in the Premier League for years, instead of just a few minutes.

And it didn’t go unnoticed, as West Ham fans took to Twitter to praise the performance and Byram’s impact after the game…

And Byram also took to Twitter to reveal his delight at making his West Ham debut, and also thanked the fans for making him feel at home…
