OPINION

McAvennie wasted no time in congratulating Snodgrass on extending his West Ham stay, and clearly had been waiting to shout ‘I told you so’ at him for a while. The 31-year-old may have wowed for Manuel Pellegrini’s side in his 2018/19 campaign, as he scored four while assisting nine across the 38 outings he made, however, it wasn’t always smooth sailing for him at the club. Snodgrass joined the Hammers from Hull City in January 2017, and struggled to impress before the season ended. The 31-year-old struggled so much that the Hammers opted to deem him surplus to requirements by loaning him out to Aston Villa for his 2017/18 campaign. While a season-long loan for an experienced player normally means they’re heading out of a club, that hasn’t been the case for Snodgrass. The veteran returned to the Hammers at the start of the 2018/19 campaign clearly set on making a point and proving his worth, and he did just that. The only thing Snodgrass needs to work on in the upcoming campaign is his disciplinary record, as he racked up a whopping 10 yellows in his 38 league outings. (Source: Premier League)
