Robert Snodgrass has been widely praised for turning his West Ham United career around this season.
Leaner, fitter, sharper, hungrier
He looks leaner, quicker, fitter, sharper and hungrier than ever before in a West Ham shirt.
‘He’s different class’
And now he can count of the support of Hammers legend and fellow countryman Ray Stewart.
Speaking to former West Ham favourite Marlon Harewood for West Ham TV, Stewart was full of praise for Snodgrass.
“I’m a big fan of Snoddy me, I think he’s different class,” Stewart told Harewood on West Ham TV.
“He was a youngster at Livingston in Scotland when I was manager there, he was a kid there, and he’s delighted he joined West Ham.”
For many fans their view of Snodgrass changed as West Ham toiled to a narrow Carabao Cup win at Wimbledon.
Noble facing battle to reclaim place?
New signing Lucas Perez seemed reluctant to come on as a sub. So Snodgrass leapt up and could be seen telling Pellegrini “I’ll go on boss” as he ripped off his bib like a man on a mission.
His gritty performances, set piece delivery and workrate have only helped further endear the midfielder to supporters, teammates, his manager and the likes of Stewart.
Snodgrass looks set to retain his place in the centre of midfield for Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield in Mark Noble’s absence.
