With West Ham United 3-1 down against Newcastle United, it is safe to say that many of the club’s fans were feeling despondent.
This was perhaps highlighted the most when Fabian Balbuena bundled the ball in from close range to make the score 3-1, as was shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel:

This is because there was absolutely no excitement shown by many West Ham fans following the goal, as they displayed their disgust with the performance the team had given up until that point.
Balbuena’s goal and the one scored by Robert Snodgrass will paper over the cracks that were laid bare throughout that performance in the record books, but they did nothing to disguise the frustrations of many Hammers fans as they watched their team’s shambolic performance.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the goal, including posts from unimpressed West Ham fans, can be seen below:
Scoring would mean so much more if we weren’t 3 goals behind. Oh well, can’t have everything I suppose!

He’s been on the end of nearly all our corners. Nice if he could defend with that much vigor.
