Fans will love what captain Declan Rice did straight after the crucial West Ham win over Nottingham Forest.
West Ham fans are waking up with a very rare feeling of joy and positivity today after the 4-0 thumping of Forest.
Last week’s second half display at rivals Spurs was an insipid, meek surrender which left West Ham supporters furious.
This second half performance against Forest was the polar opposite, sending West Ham’s faithful home delighted.
Danny Ings marked his first start with two goals and it could – perhaps should – have been a full debut hat-trick after the striker went close with a few chances in the first half.
Rice scored a beautiful curling effort from outside the box and Michail Antonio came on to end his goal drought.
The victory and boost it has given West Ham’s goal difference has breathed new life into our Premier League battle.
It could and should be the turning point of the campaign.
Now fans will love what Rice did straight after crucial West Ham win over Nottingham Forest.
Video shows the skipper as he walks down the tunnel shirtless beaming from ear to ear.
And he is greeted by sporting director Mark Noble and his son Lenny.
Rice and Noble share a massive hug before Rice grabs little Lenny, who has his West Ham kit on, for a cuddle and shouts “Got a little win for you Len!”.
West Ham’s media team shared the video on social media and it really is a wholesome watch. You can see it in the post below.
For once results, in the main, went in West Ham’s favour this weekend too.
If David Moyes’ side can follow it up with a victory at Brighton next weekend, they could find themselves up in the dizzy heights of 13th and within striking distance of midtable.
What a difference a day makes.
