Former hero’s Snodgrass joy


stewartRobert Snodgrass has been tipped to become a huge Hammers favourite by countryman and former Irons hero Ray Stewart.

Snodgrass has become the latest Scot to follow in the likes of John Dick, Frank McAvennie ,Christian Dailly and Ray – a member of he Hammers’ 1980 FA Cup-winning side.

And  speaking to www. Ray – who made 432 appearances for the Hammers said: “I’m sure he will be a great success. He is a playmaker and a goalscorer, but he works hard for the good of the team, and that is a winning combination for West Ham fans.

“I’m so pleased he has ended up at West Ham. He is signing for a wonderful club, with wonderful supporters, and he will hopefully enjoy the prime years of his career with us.

“I was only a young boy when I came down, and I also carried a fairly big price tag, but if you’ve got confidence in your ability then you don’t think about that. You just think about working hard and showing what you can do.

“Robert will want to do that, and I’d really love him to become a favourite among the fans. I know how special that feeling is, and I still have that bond now.”

    I read this yesterday Ray was one of my all time favourite players, Snodgrass has certainly made a good impression in the first couple of games, looks like a proper Irons player, for him this is probably his last big move also so hopefully he will be with us for the next few years (I thought the same about Payet but Snodgrass is hopefully a different kettle of fish).

    Any football fan just wants to see you giving everything you have for the team! The players are extremely well paid and in the premiership they should be set for life when their career ends. I like the look of Snod and hope he keeps up that inbreed Scottish grit he has showed so far, if he does he will be remembered for the right reasons:) Not like Judas
