Hammers worst player on an awful night

|

Ok, West Ham were awful last night and one individual was unquestionably the worst of the lot!

We are talking Pablo Fornals who produced a truly shocking performance which can only be put down in part to his lack of action this season.

Gonzo I don’t disagree on a lot but I have to admit my jaw dropped when I saw he had awarded him a 3 in his ratings and claimed he tried his heart out.

I saw a player who offered absolutely nothing and was responsible in part for the second goal – a view shared afterwards by Joe Cole who ripped into the No 8.

It was hard not to and his body language  suggested this is a player who knows he will be on the move – probably to Seville – either in January or the summer having made it clear to the club apparently that he plans to leave at the end of his contract or before if a club offers money.

Cole was deeply disappointed with him and said on the second goal: ” “Not tight enough, allowing a cross to come in like that. Fornals there not tight enough, when you’re a winger going back to help your full-back, you’re there to stop the cross, not to just be a mannequin.”
