West Ham fans react to David Moyes substituting Pablo Fornals on for Manuel Lanzini

West Ham United found themselves chasing the game against Sheffield United, after a mix-up between David Martin and Fabian Balbuena gifted Oliver McBurnie the only goal of the game.

With seven minutes of the match remaining, David Moyes decided that he was going to make his last available substitution in an attempt to claw the result back.

In the end, he opted to bring Pablo Fornals on for Manuel Lanzini with his last opportunity to impact the game.

Fans agreed that the Spaniard should have been introduced to the action, but they felt frustrated that it took so long to get him on.

One fan referred to the 23-year-old as “the most in-form player we have”, so there was understandable concern about seeing him on the bench for so long.

In the end, the time constraints got the better of Fornals, as he failed to make much of an impact. He didn’t produce any key passes, dribbles or shots, while making a total of three attempted passes.

The Spaniard should feel hard-done-by that he was brought on so late, with many Hammers fans believing that he should have been on the pitch from the very start.

This is a player who had got a goal and three assists from his last seven league games, as well as a goal and assist in the FA Cup win against Gillingham.

For Moyes to then leave him out clearly caused frustration, which was only heightened by the fact that he was introduced to the action so deep into the game, as a number of fans suggested it happened “83 minutes too late”.

Meanwhile, West Ham fans fumed over ExWHUemployee’s transfer claim.
