A lot of West Ham fans are reacting to the latest update on the current Premier League season, and it is fair to say the latest plans have caused mixed reaction from the Hammers faithful.
With it being over two months since a ball has been kicked due to recent events, many have been debating when football can continue, and it looks like talks between the Premier League and the clubs in the division have taken positive steps as it has been announced by the Hammers on Twitter that the first team squad will be able to set up training in small groups from Tuesday 19th May.
Will the Hammers stay up?
If this goes well then no doubt the league will look to start as soon as possible and manager David Moyes will have to hope his players are up for a battle as they are in a relegation dogfight with five other teams who sit within eight points of each other, via BBC Sport.
Some of the West Ham faithful are frustrated that football is coming back too soon, whilst others aren’t that pleased that they have to go back to watching their team perform again as it has been a pretty poor campaign so far.
Here is what they had to say following the news:
Our first team squad will step up to small group training on Tuesday 19 May after the Premier League today confirmed the agreed requirements.

Tell us the plan please – finish the season behind closed doors ? Can we play at home ? Will there be a close season in a few weeks ? Will the new season commence with fans? – keep fans in the loop we all understand the potential problems so share everything!

Football is dead. Think that’s me done. To put money rights etc before player safety, the fans and the actual game itself speaks VOLUMES when countries who are much further to coronavirus recovery have finished the season.
