West Ham United: Many fans feared the worst after Jonjo Shelvey’s Newcastle United goal

When West Ham United came out at half-time, already 2-0 down against Newcastle United, a response will have been expected, or at least hoped for, by many.

The quick start to the half so many desired didn’t come from the men in claret and blue, in fact, the complete opposite happened, as they went down by one more after just five minutes of the second period:

The goal came via a Jonjo Shelvey free-kick from range, which slipped through Roberto’s fingers, as shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.

Many Hammers fans were left fearing the worst following the goal, not just for the game but also the entire season, especially with Lukasz Fabianski remaining out injured.

Some fans bemoaned the ‘next level’ comments that have come from the club in the past, while others even suggested the team could be in for a relegation battle.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the goal, including posts from concerned West Ham fans, can be seen below:
