West Ham have struggled to find consistency so far this season but positive improvements have been shown in the past week or so, where the Hammers have become a lot more stable.
Back-to-back victories over Newcastle United, Cardiff City and Crystal Palace has sent the Hammers flying up the Premier League standings and has provided Manuel Pellegrini’s side with a platform to build upon over the course of the busy festive season.
After spending heavily in the summer, splashing over £100m on new recruits, West Ham have started to reap the rewards but further work is still required in the market – although the latest addition was not met well on social media.
In a move that is an indication of the direction modern football is heading in, West Ham announced the signing of FIFA 19 PS4 player Edi Garibovic into their eSports team – and fans expressed their discontent on social media.
We have gathered some of their comments below.

This is great and all, but why is there more effort put into these than actual signings we made in the summer

“So shall we sign Rice on a long term contract then? NO… sign this computer game boy immediately instead!!”
