Warrior hero Soucek puts divers to shame

Tomas Soucek showed AGAIN why he has become such a Hammers hero during the game against  the Spurs.

And in doing so he heaped shame on the likes of  well known divers Grealish and Salah who go to earth quicker than their feet sometimes seem capable of taking them.

The Czech midfielder was clearly in a lot of trouble from what has been described to us as a deep and long cut over the eye after a clash of heads.

But after receiving some medical attention twice during the course of the game he showed his warrior status by playing through the game.

It was heroic stuff and his importance to us was demonstrated by the fact that Spurs became far more of a threat after he had been injured.

Soucek’s attitude goes right through this squad at the moment – everybody wants to be a part of every minute but the number 28’s efforts yesterday went beyond the call of duty.

The only surprise will be if he’s not again at the heart of our midfield for the game at Manchester City next weekend.

Hero going on legend …. yes already!

  1. Love our Czech lads both took ‘hits’ yesterday, I’m tougher than you, no I’m tougher than you, no I’m tougher… lol COYI ⚒⚒⚒

  2. I am a season ticket holder living in South Africa.
    Not since Billy Bonds have I seen such a wonderful work horse for his team. Thomas is a first class gem and I’m so happy he’s a Hammer.

  3. What bargains our two Czech players have proven to be. Talented and tough.
    Our midfield, featuring Declan and Tomas is the envy of the EPL. Long may they play together in this constantly improving West Ham team.
    And, Vlad what an absolute gift for £5 million. The great attitude and professionalism our two Czech stars must be impressing our younger players is beyond pricw

  4. ‘Selfless Soucek’ is the best way to describe this Man !!! He got up like a ‘Jack-in-the-Box’ knowing his brow was pouring blood his adrenaline was still pumping and not until the ball was away from danger did he realise his wound and was probably concussed also. Followed by the concern for his teammate. All this on top of his undoubted qualities as a player and importance to our team, as well as setting a standard and example to all professional footballers, and his value to our own Academy is immeasurable.

  5. Soucheks not as squeaky clean as you might think. You see him wipe someone out in almost every game but he puts his hands up and pleads innocence and he looks innocent. Maybe it’s accidental or clumsy, who knows but he gets away with it and that’s the main thing. He is a warrior so he doesn’t mean to be aggressive in a nasty way that’s for sure. He is just the hard battling tough tackling swashbuckling kind. Reminds me of billy bonds.
