Lots of fans have been reacting to a journalist’s question regarding West Ham goalkeeper Roberto, as The Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle asked supporters to describe the Spaniard in one word.
There have been some pretty terrible players to play in the Premier League down the years.
Southampton fans will think of Ali Dia, plenty of minds will go straight to Titus Bramble, and of course where would Manchester United be without Bebe?
For Hammers fans though, there probably aren’t many higher up the list than Roberto right now, who has been nothing short of abysmal since replacing the injured Łukasz Fabiański.
The 33 year-old has looked like a lost puppy in most of his appearances for the Irons so far, conceding 15 goals in 7 showings and failing to muster up a clean sheet.
After his latest nightmare display, fans may at least be able to find some humour in the pain of defeat, after this journalist requested a short and sweet description of the ‘keeper as he was missing the match.
Can’t see the West Ham game as on a train. But could somebody sum up their goalkeeper Roberto in a word for me please?

Should West Ham sign Giroud?
