However, by December 11 the club had been taken over by an Icelandic consortium who disposed of Pardew with the club sitting 18th in the table with just a solitary away point to their name.
Alan Curbishley was brought in but failed to ignite an immediate revival, winning his first game in charge, at home to Manchester United, but seeing his side go winless in their next 11 fixtures.
With nine games to play, the Hammers were rock bottom and 10 points off safety but snatched their first away win of the season 2-1 at Blackburn, despite an offside Tevez preventing a Bobby Zamora shot from going in, but a goal being given.
Curbishley's side incredibly won six of their next eight games to haul themselves out of danger, securing safety on the last game of the season with another 1-0 over the Red Devils, at Old Trafford.
