BT Sport released what they are calling the script of the season this week.

The Script: Leaky Hammers take step backwards

The controversial report, which has been universally panned, says West Ham will be the lowest placed London club with an 11th place finish.

The report also predicts the Hammers will leak goals, particularly away from home.


It does suggest West Ham will hold Manchester City in the opening game, though.

Football fans across the country have ridiculed the study.

Declan reacts… with darts

And West Ham star Declan Rice clearly thinks it is not worth the paper it is printed on.

The midfielder took to Twitter to make his feelings clear on the matter, pinning it to a dartboard and firing arrows at ‘the script’.

“Think you can predict the unpredictable?” Rice said.

“Think again! ⚒ BT Sport #Unscripted.”
