West Ham finally picked up their first points of the season with a well-deserved 3-1 away win against Everton yesterday.
It was the joyous day everyone connected with the club needed, but there was one possible sour note. Lucas Perez was called upon to replace Marko Arnautovic but was not ready to come on. Michail Antonio came on instead.
Manuel Pellegrini was at pains to point out that it wasn’t a big issue, and that should be the end of that.
Perez’s reaction may not have pleased some fans, but another player was spotted doing something the supporters loved.
Robert Snodgrass – who came in for criticism from the board last season – was straight on his feet, offering to warm up and do his bit for the team.
That contrasted with Perez’s approach, and it didn’t go unnoticed by the supporters. We’ve taken a closer look as some of them hail the Scotsman’s attitude…
@robsnodgrass7 thank you for showing what a great proffesional you are,showing respect for our great club, I hope you have a long and successful career at West Ham, you are a star X

Given the way Sullivan treated Snodgrass last season with those snide comments Rob’s commitment and attitude has been absolutely faultless. Might not be our best player but never stops trying ⚒

I wonder what Troll Brady thinks of Snoddy after he shows a complete positive attitude wanting to play?

Snodgrass is a great squad player and seems a good character to have around the place. Sanchez on the other hand is a liability and not up to the premier league.

Well done Snodders

He’s going to have to do something great to be welcomed by the fans if im honest. Snoddy, not the most talented but can’t fault his effort or mentality.
