West Ham United are without a win in any competition since September 22, which is a run of six matches where they have lost four times.
On Saturday, the Hammers suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Newcastle United, making it three Premier League matches without a win at the London Stadium.
The fans are not overly pleased with their team at the moment.
We mastered the trick in the video below in 8 attempts… could you do better?
And things were not exactly made better by Albian Ajeti.
Indeed, on Tuesday afternoon, West Ham published an interview with the summer arrival, who basically said that the team had to bounce back for the fans.
Such interviews are rarely well received as the supporters are not too interested in words; they just want results during a difficult period.
And the fact that Ajeti has only played 64 minutes of Premier League football this season made the situation even stranger.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the team’s frustrated fans can be seen below:
Whos put you up to this fella??

Thought Jose Fonte had come back with a beard?! How about no interviews til you put the ball between the posts?

Same old stuff every week now. Statements of the obvious instead of on the pitch. 😕

How about kicking the ball towards the goal every now and then, Albian? That might help us to win. Just an idea mate

Wasn’t expecting Ateji to be used for this PR nonsense. Ran out of first teamers to say this
