West Ham fans are fed up with talking after Aaron Cresswell became the latest player to comment on the club’s precarious position.
Going into the clash with Southampton this weekend, West Ham are 17th, just two points above Southampton. A win for the Saints would be absolutely catastrophic for the Hammers, and plenty of players have been talking about the game.
Fans were annoyed earlier this week when Mark Noble issued a rallying cry, with fans rightly stating it’s the players that need to step up, not the fans.
Cresswell has been Mr Versatile for the Hammers this season, leading the team with six Premier League assists but also filling in as a centre back on 13 occasions. The 28 year-old said he doesn’t care where he plays though, as long as they win.
“To be honest, as long as we get three points or we get a result, I couldn’t care less who scores, who sets the goals up or what position I play in,” he told Saturday’s Matchday Programme.
It’s all very tight at the bottom, and Creswell thinks three wins from the last eight games would be enough to secure survival.
“It’s extremely tight at the bottom of the table and I think there are at least six or seven teams who are still right in it.
“If you’re asking me how many points will keep us up, I’d say another three wins and nine points should do it, especially if we win the big, important games against the likes of Southampton and Stoke.”
Needless to say fans are getting a bit fed up of all the talking from players who aren’t performing on the pitch, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Any chance of him putting his foot in an making a tackle before the seasons out, instead of pulling out of every 50/50.
