West Ham missed out on the inaugural Premier League season, but one year later and they were back in the top-flight of English football for the 1993/94 campaign.

Finishing 13th, reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup; that would be considered a success by most, especially given it was West Ham’s first season back in the top-flight.

As for cup competitions, it was obvious how much Bonds adored the FA Cup and put everything into lifting the trophy as manager.

However, West Ham struggled in the League Cup and were eliminated in the third round of the competition, losing to Nottingham Forest 2-1 away from home.

Losing Dicks was a massive blow for the Hammers; an influential figure on and off the pitch was always going to be missed, but Bonds and his team reacted well and kept the Irons in the Premier League.

Bonds’ team were never going to challenge towards the top-end of the Premier League table – survival was imperative and that’s what the squad achieved.

In the 1993/94 campaign, the Hammers reached the FA Cup quarter-finals – beating Watford, Notts County and Kidderminster Harriers before losing to Luton Town 3-2 in a replay.
