Like you, I am a lifelong West Ham United fan. So are my wife, my kids, all of my family and most of my friends.
I grew up in east London and I'm extremely proud to be the captain of this great football club. My football club.
I'm honoured to have played nearly 450 games, and every time I pull on that shirt, I feel the responsibility to give every ounce of effort to get the win we all want so badly.
As a Season Ticket Holder, your commitment and dedication to the cause is unrivalled, and I want to thank you, on behalf of all the players and everyone at the Club, for your support over the months, seasons and decades.
We've had ups and downs this season - as always! - but one constant throughout has been your backing of the team.
I've said it a million times and I'll say it again, West Ham fans are everywhere, but the place where you make your presence felt most is when you're supporting the team on matchdays.
You make a difference. You give us confidence. You roar us on when we're on top and you can also help change the game when we're behind.
I've been watching West Ham all my life. I've been playing for the team I love for 14 seasons and, although defeats never get easier to take, every single victory is just as meaningful as the first and brings me an overwhelming sense of pride.
The early season wins over Huddersfield Town and Swansea City, the victory over Chelsea and the recent 3-0 win against Southampton - all of them were made sweeter by sharing them with you in the stands.
We have shown that we are capable of beating any team on our day and, with the squad we have in place and new faces sure to arrive in the summer, I am confident that we can enjoy a successful and memorable journey together in the 2018/19 season.
Come on you Irons!
