Bowen produced perfect answer to Luton abuse


Jarrod Bowen’s goal against Luton was the ideal way to shut up the abusive Luton fans who directed disgusting abuse at his wife during the match at Kenilworth Road.

And he was praised by manager David Moyes for picking the perfect way to silence Luton’s fans after their foul chants about his girlfriend Dani Dyer.

Bowen, who has twin daughters with the former Love Island star, was subjected to songs of ‘Jarrod Bowen, your girlfriend’s a w****’.

Bowen scored West Ham’s opening goal and celebrated by shushing the home supporters with his finger.

Moyes said after their win: ‘What do you do? You go and you score and you know that answers the questions. Players get criticism, managers do as well, and people get away with it.’

Bowen has now scored in all three of West Ham’s Premier League away games this season. Moyes added: ‘Jarrod took his goal well. He was always a threat. He’s started the season in good goal scoring form.’

Luton’s sad fans were also months late in abusing Kurt Zouma after the issues involving his cat, booing every time the Hammers skipper touched the ball – all very sad.

Ok, it was the only time they have had the opportunity – if that’s the right time – but for newly promoted fans to decide to again make an issue of the affair was truly pathetic.

    No player should have to put up that ridiculous abuse. He did not have a good game against Luton but he contributed a vital goal. Again i really worry bout moyes refusal to take bowen off in games. Every player no matter who they are if they are not playing well should be taken off. I am afraid moyes refuses to do this with certain players. The pressure is about to go up a level now on moyes. For me the team i would like to see is a 4-3-1-2 system Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson, Alvarez, Ward Prowse, Paquera, Fornals, Kudus, Bowen.
