Fierce Twitter reaction as Ngakia says ‘no’


Jeremy Ngakia’s refusal to sign a new deal with the Hammers has caused immediate outrage among Hammers fans on Twitter.

ClaretandHugh revealed exclusively that the teenager had decided to dump the Irons under the guidance presumably of his agent David Dixon.

Having only played a handful of senior games the right-back will now be leaving the club on June 30 which means he won’t even see out the current season with us.

Twitter immediately – and understandably – went into a mini-meltdown with fans unable to absorb the fact that so soon after making his breakthrough he was ready to throw it away.

It’s an extraordinary decision and leaves the question open as to whether he will emerge elsewhere over the forthcoming weeks which of course seems more than likely.

Commenting on YTwotter fans were quick to show their disapproval of the young man’s actions along with the agent’s failure to reach a deal.

Here are a random selection of comments:

Canning Town Len
Unfathomable from the agent and the player.

Alex Bicknell @AlexBicknell89
Jamie Wilkins @jamiewilkin
 Surely not

His decision, we have Ben Johnson anyway
Ryan Macdonald @FrankMa65308535
He’s not good enough anyway, now we can be brutally honest.

    billy big b*llocks.

    thanks for your service, there’s the door.

  • Graham Watts says:

    Looks like his new agent needs to make some money in these difficult times and the boy is stupid enough to go along with it!

  • The Cat says:


    The lad done well over the three to four performances, but that’s it 3 to 4 performances, Talk about jumping into a pool when it has just been emptied! It’s an idiot move by him and his agent and unless he’s been tapped up by a top six club, which I doubt, he’s gambling with his footballing future.
    The truth is Johnson was always going to progress before him and has ability by the bucketload…..the Real Heir to the right-back slot.
    It’s come as a shock, but hey, this is West Ham. Fortunately, we have a pool of talented youngsters in the academy that can be called upon as was the case with young Jeremy in an emergency, but the left-back position defensively should be the focus of our attentions right now.

    This has gotta fuc…g agent highest octane. .my god I am gutted he looked to have a bit about him and though we had healthy competition for the right back berth.. Fredericks .Johnson and him ffs what does the young lad expect down as his after a few games..which he coped with no problems this is as John Floris said in his coment have we signed some one??or is the young lad so frigging naive and his agent has got his claws in..not a happy hammer at this moment .
    and now how does Mr Moyes deal with him?if he is selected to play should the remaining games go ahead is his heart in the shirt?? I don’t

  • John Harrison says:

    So that’s why they’re after Montiel! This has clearly been a problem for a while. With Johnson to look forward to, I’m more concerned about left back.

  • Dusty Miller says:

    Agents and academy players = toxic (stars in your eyes crap!!!)

  • Kent iron says:

    Its about time all the clubs got together and put these agents in their place.

  • Matt says:

    He needs a word with Ince and Defoe before making this decision. Unless his dream is to play in Germany too, like Oxford

  • hammers64 says:

    Oxford cannot even break through to the Augsburg 1st team.Will all end in tears as these things usually do.Ngakia is a young kid and they say youth is wasted on the young and of course not helped by another blood sucking agent.After all the problems football is having is this not the perfect time to eradicate these leeches.
