West Ham fans urge Bilic to axe 29-year-old against Bournemouth

By Matt Farr

West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to urge manager Slaven Bilic to drop Robert Snodgrass from the starting eleven on Saturday.

The Hammers travel to Bournemouth in their latest Premier League fixture at the weekend, but fans would prefer to see Andre Ayew handed a start instead of the 29-year-old attacker.

Fans took to Twitter to urge Bilic to drop Snodgrass from his starting eleven, and deliver their verdicts on the selection debate.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Snodgrass joined West Ham from Premier League rivals Hull in January for a reported £10million fee, but he has yet to open his account for his new employers.

He arrived in London on the back of an impressive goalscoring run for Hull, scoring nine goals and supplying four assists, but he has yet to replicate that form for the claret and blue.

Ayew, meanwhile, has chipped in with a goal and an assist during his last two appearances, both as a substitute against Watford and Chelsea.

The majority of fans believe that the Ghana international would be a much better bet than Snodgrass to face Bournemouth given his recent run of form.

West Ham can move back into the Premier League’s top ten with a win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

They could, however, be leapfrogged by both Burnley and Watford if they fail to pick up three points, which could see them drop to 13th.

In other West Ham news, Paul Merson has delivered his prediction for the tie, and he believes this player will be missed.
