Michail Antonio has become the latest Hammers hero to be honoured with a giant hanging shirt bearing his name and number at the London Stadium.
The 27-year-old gets a shirt as reigning Hammer of the Year just as Payet was displayed last season until his departure. Antonio’s number 30 shirt was unveiled this week alongside permanent tributes to Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, Sir Trevor Brooking and Billy Bonds.
“It’s a great honour,” Michail told WHUFC.com “To be named Hammer of the Year last season was a fantastic achievement and this is a really nice touch from the Club. To have my name and number up there with the likes of Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds and Sir Trevor Brooking makes me feel very proud and humble.
“It’s thanks to the fans who voted for me. I’m so grateful for their support and hope that I can continue to repay them with goals and good performances this season.”
Michail’s giant shirt is located by Block 131 at the corner of the East and Sir Trevor Brooking Stands.
Arnautović -2 goals against Serbia in WC qualification..shame he can’t repeat that form in West Ham ..
But that’s an emerging pattern. Perhaps we need to look closer to home as to the reasons why some cannot replicate their form when we get hold of them???
