The Hammers were poor against Brentford today, especially in the first-half.

The bees bosses proceedings at the London Stadium and thoroughly deserved their first-half lead.

West Ham did come back into the game in the second-half and we equalised through a Jarrod Bowen strike with 10 minutes still to play.

Many of our players were nowhere near their best today. One player who did produce the goods yet again, however, was Declan Rice.

The 22-year-old put in his usual solid, energetic display bits it wasn’t enough to help West Ham win the game.

Brentford’s winner deep into injury time was a real kick in the teeth but these things happen. What was disappointing was the fact that only one player applauded each section of the London Stadium faithful after the game.

The 22-year-old went to every stand to show his appreciation for the home support:

Rice really is irreplaceable for the Hammers. Not only is he a hugely important figure on the pitch but he is off of it as well.
