Many fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter in which the Hammers relayed the news that Ademipo Odubeko scored a brace for the club’s under-23 side.
So far this season, Odubeko has impressed over his nine fixtures for West Ham’s youth teams, with the 18-year-old scoring eight goals and providing one assist over six appearances in the Premier League 2, as well as bagging two goals and one assist over two FA Youth Cup fixtures and netting two goals in one game in the EFL Trophy.
In a recent under-23 fixture against Everton, the Republic of Ireland under-21 international was once again in top form, scoring two second half goals to secure all three points for Dmitri Halajko’s side in the Premier League 2 clash.
After news of the striker’s brace was relayed on Twitter by West Ham, numerous fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many urging David Moyes – who currently has no fit centre-forwards in his first team squad – to field the “untouchable” teenager in the Hammers’ upcoming clash against Chelsea this Saturday.
Should Moyes start Odubeko against Chelsea?
So, what did these West Ham fans have to say in reaction to Ademipo Odubeko’s goals for the under-23s?
“He deserves to get a couple of substitutions atm. Having a blinder this year.”
“Honestly put him in the squad this week against Chelsea (if it goes ahead). He’s been smashing at this level and it’s time for the step up.”
“The man is elite.”
“FIRST TEAM NOW.”
“What a player.”
“This guy is actually a joke.”
“This geezer is untouchable at the moment.”
“Start Odubeko against London Blues.”
“Give this guy a chance.”
