The West Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t get their head around this…..
West Ham have not enjoyed the best start to the Premier League season, and the fans of rival clubs in the Football Transfer Tavern have not let the Hammers faithful forget it.
Despite a stellar campaign last year, West Ham currently sit in 18th place in the Premier League; and nobody in the Tavern is quite sure why.
A number of factors like West Ham’s recent stadium move, combined with a hangover following their success last season are likely contributors; but nobody in the Football Transfer Tavern was expecting to see West Ham battle relegation this season.
What makes West Ham’s form even more confusing is the individual performances of a number of their key men – as the below Tweet shows…
PL top scorer: Michail Antonio
PL top assists: Dimitri Payet

As displayed above, West Ham forward Michail Antonio currently sits atop the Premier League goalscoring charts; whilst Dimitri Payet is currently top of the Premier League assists chart.
Yet West Ham are struggling this season? It doesn’t make sense.
Our landlord thinks that this is proof that West Ham’s problems lie in defence – as, clearly, their offensive outfit is performing on all fronts.
West Ham fans – Do you agree?
