During the 2000–01 English football season, West Ham United competed in the FA Premier League (known as the FA Carling Premiership for sponsorship reasons).

Season summary[edit]

The sale of Rio Ferdinand to Leeds United contributed towards a dip in West Ham's Premiership form, and mystery surrounded the departure of manager Harry Redknapp on 9 May following a row with chairman Terry Brown over transfer cash for what the club needed to challenge for a top six finish next season.[1] Alan Curbishley, Steve McClaren and George Graham were just some of the many names linked with the vacancy before it was announced that caretaker manager and former youth coach Glenn Roeder would be taking over on a permanent basis.[2]
