West Ham once again equalled their highest ever league finish of 6th. This was largely due to Hammer of the Year Pop Robson and his prowess in front of goal. Trevor Brooking was runner up as Hammer of the Year.

Bobby Moore overtook Jimmy Ruffell's record number of League Appearances for West Ham, a record that had stood unchallenged since 1936. Bobby Moore also marked his 100th England cap in the same month.
