Many West Ham fans will have been left underwhelmed by their players’ performances in the 2-0 loss against Crystal Palace, though Ryan Fredericks is one who did himself justice.

The 26-year-old was named Man of the Match by WhoScored, being awarded a rating of 7.7, having got an assist, making 3 tackles, playing 4 key passes and winning 3 aerial duels.

However, what he said after the game didn’t please fans as much as he may have hoped:

It is good that he has ambition for the Hammers, but plenty of the club’s supporters don’t believe or agree with what he said.

To claim that West Ham is a massive club is a big claim that has been put down by some, with a mention going to the 4-0 loss against Oxford United, having just been beaten by Crystal Palace and the 40-year wait for a major trophy.
