Some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the incredible numbers posted by Tomas Soucek…

Soucek is so incredibly important to West Ham.

He is an absolute monster in the air but he is far more than just an aerial bully.

The 26-year-old is incredibly energetic and has arguably more stamina than any other player in the game. He literally doesn’t stop running for the team.


Soucek is a real threat in the final third as well with 12 goals in 50 games for West Ham to his name so far.

The Czech Republic is an absolute warrior and he has totally transformed the mentality of this West Ham team along with his fellow countryman Vladimir Coufal.

Even when he’s not scored, he has been contributing hugely.

Soucek has proven to be an excellent addition to David Moyes’ squad.

And it is clear to see just how popular he is in East London!
