West Ham haven’t won since beating Man United at home in September, so it’s understandable their fans are getting restless. They sit 17th, just three points above the relegation zone, and have scored just six times in as many games, despite spending over £70m on new players this summer.
Centre-forward Sebastien Haller, bought for £36m, has netted just four times in 12 games and hasn’t been rated over 8/10 on WhoScored since the Hammers beat Norwich City in August when he bagged his third in two games. Pablo Fornals hasn’t made a single goal contribution in the league since signing for £25.2m, while Felipe Anderson hasn’t scored for the club this season, either.
The Hammers sent winger Grady Diangana on loan to West Brom this summer, and so far he’s bagged four goals and made five assists in the Championship. His contribution to the Baggies’ first goal against Bristol City on Wednesday included a barnstorming run through the defence and then a clever backheel to make the assist.
A West Ham fan account on Twitter, Uber West Ham, posted a video of the goal to their followers. Fans were quick to reply about how he looks better than their existing forwards and how they could do with him back at the London Stadium.

West Ham fans, who do you blame for your team’s drop in form since mid-September?
