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:
Looks great aside from Snodgrass, hasn't performed well enough to warrant a start https://t.co/a3jkWj4tO8

Better than mr 0 goals 0 assists Snodgrass, ayew getting a goal and assist from the bench in his last 2 games deserves a start

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.
