West Ham star Jarrod Bowen has shaken off his World Cup blow by joining Hammers boss David Moyes in taking a holiday to Florida.
There are a whole host of West Ham players that have struggled this season to hit the high standards they have set for themselves.
No individual should be made a scapegoat for the Hammers malaise, which can be charted back a full year in terms of Premier League results and performances.
But one player who is well down on the levels he is capable of is Bowen.
The former Hull City man was not only one of West Ham’s best players last season but one of the top attackers in the Premier League.
It was Bowen who carried the goalscoring burden on his shoulders for the Hammers when Michail Antonio’s form fell off a cliff. And it earned him a long overdue England call-up in the summer.
Nobody can question his workrate for the team, but going forward Bowen has looked a yard off all season. It came at the worst possible time for his England World Cup hopes.
West Ham’s once flying forward was left out of the Three Lions squad for Qatar by Gareth Southgate. And it was no great surprise to fans or indeed Bowen’s manager Moyes, who admitted as much when the squad was named.
Fans, pundits and Moyes himself feel the World Cup break may have come at a good time for West Ham and their under-performing players.
The Hammers need to regroup, refresh and refocus because the pressure will be on when the Premier League resumes.
Before getting down to work at Rush Green, Moyes and his players are taking some holiday time.
And West Ham star Bowen has shaken off his World Cup blow by joining boss Moyes in taking a holiday to Florida.
Bowen has used his time off to jet out to Florida for a trip to Disneyland with girlfriend Dani Dyer and her son (The Sun).
The couple posed in front of the Disney castle and Bowen got into the spirit of things by wearing a Mickey Mouse hat.
Despite being 4,500 miles away from West Ham, Bowen finds himself in the same place as his manager Moyes.
There had been much speculation as to what Moyes was doing with his time during this break.
Some reports claimed he has been scouting at the World Cup in Qatar ahead of the January transfer window.
Others state he has been hard at work at Rush Green with his staff while some have said he is enjoying some time away.
