On 24 May, the last matchday of the season, Stanislas scored the winner in the 2–1 win over Middlesbrough, which sealed Boro's relegation to the Championship.[9]

Stanislas scored two goals in West Ham United's 3–1 League Cup victory over Millwall in August 2009.

After some impressive performances, manager Gianfranco Zola named him in the starting eleven on a more regular basis with Collison, who usually plays on the left, being switched to right midfield.

Stanislas has been capped for England at under-19, under-20 and under-21 level.[12] He received his first call-up to the U-21 side for a friendly against the Netherlands on 11 August 2009 and made his debut in that match.[13] Stuart Pearce then named him in the squad for the 2011 European Championship qualifiers against Macedonia and Greece.

He is eligible to play for the St Lucia national football team. He said "I'm half St Lucian so I could play internationals for them if I wanted... but I don't."'[14]
