Fans call for clarity on Adrian position

West Ham supporters have urged the club to explain exactly why Adrian remains on the sidelines following another goalkeeping horror show from Darren Randolph at Sunderland this afternoon.

The popular Spanish goalkeeper, who had been the club's first choice since moving to West Ham from Real Betis in 2013 was dropped by Slaven Bilic following some erratic performances in the opening games of the season.

But with Randolph having made a series of clangers himself since - including two more notable errors that cost West Ham two points at Sunderland this afternoon - fans have demanded that Adrian be reinstated.

"Bilic has remained silent for long enough," wrote KUMB follower @DamianADavis on Twitter following the final whistle at the Stadium of Light. "He must explain why he continues to pick Randolph, the supporters deserve that at the very least."

A recent KUMB poll resulted in 95 per cent of fans backing the reintroduction of the Spaniard, who is out of contract this summer - even though the club retain the option to extend his stay in London for a further two years - should they choose to.
