West Ham United’s disappointing 2017-18 campaign went from bad to worse when they suffered a 4-1 home defeat to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
Losing to the English champions was not a major shock, but it would be fair to say that the club’s supporters were not happy with their team’s performance.
To be blunt, the fans want the board and head coach David Moyes to leave their football team.
A number of players have also been criticised this season, but one individual that seems as popular as ever is Austrian attacker Marko Arnautovic.
The 29-year-old, who is valued at £16.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has been in good form for the Hammers in recent months, and has managed 10 Premier League goals during the 2017-18 campaign.
Arnautovic was one of a few West Ham players that approached the fans after Sunday’s match, and that has gone down very well, with the attacker receiving praise on social media during a very difficult period for the club.
