West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are as desperate as anyone for the season to end, with their beloved Hammers having been through the wringer in 2016/17, but there has been another development that’s left them saddened: Pedro Obiang will miss the rest of the season.
Europa League qualification elimination, worries regarding relegation during the winter, the botched move to the London Stadium and Dimitri Payet heading away in less than happy circumstances, there’s been plenty for Irons fans to frown about so far, so the Obiang development hasn’t been welcomed.
INJURY UPDATE -Obiang is out for the rest of the season

Jack Sullivan tweeted the news this morning, and with the Spaniard having been one of the standout performers in the east of London in recent months, losing him is seen as a bitter blow.
Naturally, fans took to Twitter to vent in the wake of the news and here are some of the best reactions…

Obiang won’t play for us again. Someone will come in for him in the summer, no question. He’ll want to leave. Who wouldn’t atm?

No Obiang, Reid and Antonio for a long stretch. That’s Bilic’s ultimate challenge. #WHUFC

Obiang for the season, Reid 6 weeks and Antonio 3 weeks. If we lose to hull we’re 6 points above relegation £600 to watch burton @ home
