West Hammers angry squad: Oggy

West Ham‘s angry squad aim to make Olympiacos pay for some pretty disrespectful behaviour after the game in Greece. Having been beaten 2-1 the Hammers returned to their dressing room to hear the Greek squad celebrating big style further down the corridor and they are still smarting with Angelo Ogbonna making the point the Irons would have been more respectful had they won.

We can expect to see a very different West Ham tonight with us sitting in joint top place in group A and needing to win to help progress into the next stage of the Europa Cup. And it looks likely the behaviour of the Greek squad after the first game will be exactly the motivation our boys need to make the opposition pay. Both Oggy and James Ward-Prowse were annoyed at the carrying-ons and believe the Hammers will be on the case tonight after such a disappointing result which brought complaints from the pair of them.

Following Oggy’s comments Ward-Prowse added: ‘It wasn’t a good performance from us, admittedly. The way they reacted after they won the game – you could hear it down the corridor – we spoke about it and said it’s a good opportunity coming to put that right and show them something. ‘You could see a different West Ham then, for sure. Evening games in general are more gritty, it has a bit more bite to it, so it’ll be an interesting one.’
