Relegation-threatened West Ham fans all say the same thing as U18s secure stunning 6-1 win to reach FA Youth Cup final


WEST HAM fans have all been saying the same thing after the under-18s smashed Southampton in the FA Youth Cup.

The young Hammers won the semi-final 6-1 with highly-rated prospect Divin Mubama netting a hat-trick.

The youngsters raced into a two-goal lead through Mubama and Callum Marshall. Mubama then made it three early in the second half before Dominic Ballard’s first-time finish seemed to get the Saints back in the game. But the contest was soon over as Gideon Kodua, Mubama, Favour Fawunmi rounded off the scoring. It was a stark contrast to the events at the London Stadium just 24 hours earlier.

The senior side were hammered 5-1 by Newcastle, heaping pressure on manager David Moyes. The club are embroiled in the relegation battle and fans are desperate to see the club pull itself away from danger. However, after the hammering by the Toon, some fans want change at the club with Moyes being replaced by youth coach Kevin Keen.

One tweeted: “Get Kevin Keen in as part of the management of the main team ASAP.”

A second commented: “Can Kevin Keen manage the first team.”

A third wrote: “Kevin Keen to take over until the end of the season? Got the youngsters playing well…why not.”

Keen is a former West Ham star having played over 200 times for the club.

While some Hammers fans wanted to see the hat-trick hero be given a chance in the Premier League over the misfiring Michail Antonio and Danny Ings as well as injury prone Gianluca Scamacca.
