West Ham United members flocked to social media on Thursday, to pay tribute to an under-appreciated member of David Moyes’ squad.
Irons, of course, have been working for a short time.
Against the backdrop of a worrying 2-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Brentford last weekend, Moyes and his teammates. They have turned their attention back to matters on the continent, looking to regain the score in the club’s Europa League quarter-final second leg with Olympique Lyonnais.
And when all was said and done at Groupama Stadium, the bounce is exactly what West Ham have managed to achieve in some style.
Having weathered an early bout of Lyon pressure, visitors continued to riot in central France, en route to a historic 3-0 win.
Central defender Craig Dawson opened the scoring late in the first half, before more hits by Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen set the Hammers traveling support in the dreamland, ensuring the club qualified for the Europa League semi-finals.
Things keep getting better with West Ham! 🙏

At the back of the final whistle at Groupama Stadium a short time ago, it should come as no surprise to hear about West Ham fans scrambling to get a whole host of club stars for the special praise.
The likes of Declan Rice, Manuel Lanzini and Michel Antonio have all seen their names take center stage in the headlines, thanks to the team’s impressive display.
As noted above, though, he is often another underappreciated member of David Moyes’ ranks, and many others have instead been keen to praise him.
The player in question? Pablo Fornals:
Fornals is playing the game of his life now.

Bowen has taken a lot of credit this season. But the Fornals not only how much he loves the club but his vision, Cazorla-Esque and never complains about playing anywhere. Love these two, what a night another happy Antonio 🤞 or Johnson who deserves so much respect
