West Ham fans react to Wilshere display v Brighton

West Ham secured their first point of the season at the Amex on Saturday but fans weren’t impressed by the display from Jack Wilshere. 

Javier Hernandez gave the Hammers the lead in the 61st minute of the game after Leandro Trossard had a goal ruled out through VAR. The lead only lasted four minutes, though, as Trossard wasn’t to be denied his goal in an impressive home debut.

By contrast, Wilshere had a game he’ll want to forget. He gave the ball away repeatedly and failed to make any sort of impact on the game, which is hugely disappointing given his experience. He was hauled off at half-time and replaced with Michel Antonio.

His stats were miserable. According to WyScout he made 26 total actions in the time he was on the pitch and was only successful with 11 of them. He only made nine passes, with zero long passes, crosses or passes to the box.

West Ham fans have a right to expect a lot more from a player with Wilshere’s reputation and who is on £100,000-a-week [Spotrac].

Here are the best reactions from fans to his display on Saturday:
