Soucek sends message to fans

Tomas Soucek has rejected the opportunity to claim that he will be staying at West Ham United in a much publicised tweet.

The midfielder is still waiting for a rise on his basic wage which has so far been refused by David Moyes.

Ous understanding has been for several months that a number of clubs are looking in his direction and that offers could emerge for the 27 year old.

Both Sky Sports and the London Evening Standard have since run stories claiming that London Stadium sources say he is integral to the club’s future and won’t be going anywhere after performing in 51 games this season.

And the player himself has had the opportunity to clear things up by using a tweet to do so but instead he has chosen to merely thank the fans for their support.

He posted the tweet yesterday (May 27) saying: “@tomassoucek28

This season was a crazy ride! Cannot even describe all the feelings and emotions we have left on the pitch. Thank you for all the support and loyalty during the games.   #whu #offseason #premiereleague #westham.

Claretandhugh says: We are huge fans of Tomas whilst accepting that his last season wasn’t what we had become used to from him. We had received news a couple of months ago and published it that he had been refused an improved contract which had led to some problems. Since then nothing has changed and like many others we hope it does. We would love to be wrong about the situation as we have reported it and hope that David Moyes has a change of heart over a midfielder who at his best is a huge asset to the club alongside Declan.

  1. We have to remember No omayer is bigger than the club, I’d love him to stay but IF DM has ideas of someone better or more fitting to the new role, alongside Dec (hopefully) then in DM WE Must TRUST

  2. I reckon this situation is a simple battle of wills. The manager KNOWS what a quality player TS is but in asking him not to play his ‘natural game’ last season tensions have arisen.
    DM is miffed because he doesn’t think he’s tried hard enough to adapt and TS likely feels he’s been disrespected by the manager/ment because in light of a less than perfect season (by his standards) he hasn’t been rewarded with a more lucrative contract.
    Player power is one thing and something, I believe, that should be stamped on at West Ham but belligerent/stubborn management is just as bad.
    For the good of the squad (and the changing room atmosphere) a compromise should be had here. After all, from what I can make out, TS is not just a brilliant player but a decent human being who would improve any team and every effort should be made to keep him…

  3. We were a bottom three outfit when Tomas arrived, his presence changed is almost immediately, his Colin Bell lungpower and Martin Peters ghosting into goal scoring positions was a revelation. Hammer of the Year. Then DM decided to restrict him to Defensive duties, it went wrong for Tomas, and now we have a problem of our own making. Genius.
    Meanwhile, watch this space, we have a brilliant young c/b in Aji Alese who starred in the U23 league but can’t get two minutes first team action. He is 22 next year and we will lose him.
    Sorry but I am not a happy hammer at the mo, just worried.
