West Ham were robbed of a point against Sheffield United last night after a quite frankly ridiculous decision to rule out Robert Snodgrass’s equaliser.

The Hammers were far from their best against the Blades, but the end result was unquestionably harsh on the east London outfit.

The Scot’s goal was chalked off after Declan Rice was adjudged to have handled the ball in the build up.

West Ham are now in a whole world of trouble.

They sit just two points clear of the drop zone and have games against Manchester City, Leicester City, Liverpool (twice), Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea to come over the next two-and-a-half months

A point against the Blades last night would have been a real boost for the Hammers. Instead, their confidence will be at rock bottom.

Declan Rice spoke after last night’s match, and suggested that hardly any players like VAR, as quoted by the Daily Mail:

“I don’t think it’s just me, I think it’s the thoughts of every Premier League player. Pretty much everyone doesn’t want VAR in the game. There’s been so many decisions that have been absolutely crazy.”

 

And former Tottenham and Wolves man O’Hara backed the West Ham ace up, embarking on a lengthy Twitter rant…

O’Hara is absolutely spot on. The game is in danger of being completely ruined. And the powers that be need to address that issue immediately.
