The Scot is far from the most technically gifted player at the London Stadium.
But make no mistake. Snodgrass has been one of the Hammers’ best and most consistent players this season.
The 32-year-old works tirelessly. And he has made a real difference when he has played this season.
The former Hull City ace has racked up five goals and five assists in 24 Premier League games for West Ham this term (Transfermarkt).
Massive blow losing Snoddy
The Hammers are in real trouble at the moment. They are fighting for their Premier League lives. And the east London outfit need Snodgrass back and available for selection as soon as possible.
But Moyes told reporters today that the Scot could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines, as quoted by the club’s official website:
“We’re a bit worried that Robert Snodgrass might be out for a while – he’s got what looks like a disc problem in his back, so we couldn’t give you anything which suggests a return date for him at the moment.”
West Ham wasted set-piece after set-piece against Wolves on Saturday. And if nothing else, they will miss the 32-year-old’s excellent deliveries from corners and free-kicks.
Let’s hope Snodgrass is back fit sooner than Moyes expects.
The Hammers’ hopes of retaining their top flight status this season could depend on it.
