Angelo Ogbonna posts defiant message after Chelsea scandal as attention now turns to Europe and Newcastle for West Ham.

West Ham fans are finding it unusually difficult to get over the debacle at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

So imagine how David Moyes and his players are feeling.

Newcastle United may feel similarly aggrieved following their own VAR-cical disallowed goal in a draw with Palace.

But the Magpies did at least take a point from the game whereas West Ham are left raging over an undeserved 2-1 defeat.

West Ham and Newcastle meet on Sunday in a clash of the clubs so ludicrously robbed by two of the worst VAR decisions yet.

Before that the Hammers are in European action, taking on FCSB in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

Given their lowly position in the table and the fact VAR has already cost West Ham points at Nottingham Forest this season, it would be quite easy for West Ham’s players to start feeling sorry themselves.

But not with veteran defender and co-vice-captain Ogbonna around.

Because Ogbonna has posted a defiant message after the Chelsea scandal as attention turns to Europe and Newcastle for West Ham.

“Sometimes giving everything is not enough,” Ogbonna said on Twitter in the wake of the Chelsea sickener.

“But it’s never a good reason to stop doing it.

“Head-up Irons! We go again!”

What a guy Ogbonna is. West Ham need him back fully fit and in the side on a regular basis and he will make the world of difference to this team.

This could well be Ogbonna’s last season at West Ham. He has been one of the club’s best centre-backs of the modern era and a true leader on and off the pitch.

He will likely continue his comeback by playing against Steaua Bucurest on Thursday.

The attention turns to a very important Premier League game against Newcastle where West Ham will be desperately hoping to get a much-needed win.

It will not be easy, though.

Particularly a team news update from Eddie Howe ahead of the visit to West Ham.
