There’s nothing like a bit of Hammer of the Year chatter to distract us from this Coronavirus nonsense, is there?
It may not have been the best of seasons for us so far and it would probably be a relief if they voided it, but there’s still been some impressive individual performers – and we’re pretty sure that the club will still hand the award out whenever 2019/2020 finishes.
Last Thursday, Hammers Polls on Twitter asked our fellow fans to vote on who they think deserves the accolade based on what we’ve seen so far and it prompted discussion of potential winners in the comments.
The poll itself consisted of just two names, Angelo Ogbonna and Declan Rice, with a third option for ‘other’.
And with the best part of a week still left in the vote, Oggy is out in front with 63% with Deccers in second with 30 and ‘other’ in third with seven…

Oggy for me he has been immense best season in years. I didn’t think he was mobile enough for back 4 anymore but really put knee injury behind him.
Antonio be up there, he so much better with him but hasn’t been out a lot & Rice who still kind if goes under radar for fwd play
