West Ham have had their fair share of hard luck when it has come to strikers over the years.
The club have brought in far too many forwards who have then failed to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.
However, there have been some good ones in the club’s history, so we asked you, the fans, to name West Ham’s best ever striker.
The results are in and here are the top five…
5: Dean Ashton (61%)
Ashton makes it into the top five after winning 61% of his duels in the voting. He scored 15 goals in 46 games after joining from Norwich, before injuries ended his career.
