After West Ham United grinded out a nervy 2-1 victory at home to Aston Villa on Monday night, plenty of Irons supporters are not happy with Gabriel Agbonlahor and his take on Jack Grealish’s alleged diving.
Agbonlahor, speaking to Football Insider, claimed that the Englishman ‘needs more protection’ as he ‘always seems to get fouled’ – coming after Hammers supporters accused of him simulation during their encounter.
Does Jack Grealish need more protection from referees?
Yes, agree with Agbonlahor
Absolutely no way
Angelo Ogbonna nodded in an early opening goal before Grealish grabbed one back with a stunning deflected strike before half time.
David Moyes’ substitution, however, paid dividends – with summer signing Said Benrahma setting up Jarrod Bowen for what would eventually be the winning goal.
Having their say on the comments made by Agbonlahor, plenty of Irons were livid over the so-called ‘embarrassing‘ take – find all of their best verdicts down below.
Hammers blast Agbonlahor verdict
This is a joke, surely?
