Whichever way you look at it, this has not been a good start to the new season for Robert Snodgrass. The 32-year-old might have signed a new deal with West Ham over the summer, but since then he has found himself way down the pecking order in east London, making just one start in the Premier League so far this season. And it’s easy to see why, over the course of his four appearances in the league – that start plus three cameos from the bench – he has averaged a pass success rate of 73.2%, with just 0.5 key passes per game, and a Whoscored rating of just 6.38. And it would appear that he has taken that shaky form with him onto the international stage as well. Snodgrass put in a fairly dire outing in Scotland’s 4-0 loss to Russia on Thursday, and supporters were quick to jump on him for an underwhelming display. The veteran looked listless and bereft of ideas for the most part, and struggled to bring any kind of spark to the centre of the park. It’s always sad to see a player put in such a poor performance, but on the basis of this, you have to winder how much longer Snodgrass has at the top, top level.
