I have seen better games of football in Leagues One and Two than in Serbia last night which had I been a neutral I would have switched off after 15 minutes to continue watching the brilliant Suranne Jones in Doctor Foster – let me recommend it to you highly! Bang in the middle of this appalling Europa League Group A game was the thoroughly awful Said Benrahma writes Hughie Southon
In a very poor match indeed, the Hammers looked no better than many of the teams in the lower leagues against a team which was even worse. It was terrible and with Benrahma – currently being tipped as a Saudi League possible all I can say is PLEASE!
I hadn’t thought it would be possible to see him perform any worse than he has already this season – but he managed it with a display which put no pennies on his transfer valuation but took several millions off it.
Frankly, he was useless and how he managed to stay on the pitch for as long as he did is a mystery only the manager can answer. When he did bring him off he saw Danny Ings as a natural replacement. SIGH!
Benrahma’s day is done at West Ham for me – he has nothing to offer but runs down the left before he is robbed, falls over, is bullied off the ball or shoots tamely at the keeper whilst ignoring better placed players.
He is NOT a Premier League player and if Moyes sends him on again in one it is time to despair!
