vs Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Saturday, 26th December

Did not play. Fornals and Benrahma also unused subs.

vs Crystal Palace

1-1: Tuesday, 15th December
(Played 2 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Benrahma, 88) Not on long enough to influence proceedings.

vs Leeds United

2-1: Friday, 11th December
(Played 6 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Fornals, 90+3) On for a few mere seconds to see out time.

vs Manchester United

1-3: Saturday, 5th December

Did not play.

vs Sheffield United

1-0: Sunday, 22nd November

Did not play.

vs Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 31st October

Did not play.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

3-3: Sunday, 18th October
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Masuaku, 90) Brought on to take set pieces, I assume. But his most telling contribution was being the man Winks poked the ball away from, into Lanzini's path.

vs Everton

1-4: Wednesday, 30th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Wasteful on a few occasions, but his goal was lovely. Otherwise he was similar to Wilshere, neat and tidy but with the freedom to roam forward more.

vs Hull City

5-1: Tuesday, 22nd September
(Played 90 minutes)

Wasteful on a few occasions, but his goal was lovely. Otherwise he was similar to Wilshere, neat and tidy but with the freedom to roam forward more.

vs Charlton Athletic

3-0: Tuesday, 15th September
(Played 83 minutes)

Faded as the game went on and was never quite as fast with the ball at his feet as Lanzini, Yarmolenko and Anderson, but good endeavour and lovely cross for the goal.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 4th July

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Arsenal

0-1: Saturday, 7th March

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Southampton

3-1: Saturday, 29th February

(Replaced Bowen) Came on, worked hard, made little fuss. One lovely slide tackle was appreciated in the stands.

Liverpool

2-3: Monday, 24th February

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Manchester City

0-2: Wednesday, 19th February

He worked hard, up and down, back and forth. There was just little he could really do. We won no freekicks to threaten, rare counters were usually too few on numbers and pace to make any impact.

Brighton & Hove Albion

3-3: Saturday, 1st February

All the luck went his way individually, but he earned it. Bravery with the ball, with his work ethic and positioning. He made sure he got there to hit that volley for the second, his set pieces were regularly dangerous and the first goal was down to his brilliant delivery. The third never should have been hit yet was done so excellently. Little more he could do and he may well be the real key to West Ham’s chances of survival.

West Bromwich Albion

0-1: Saturday, 25th January

A busy boy although he failed to provide the cutting edge required.

Leicester City

1-4: Wednesday, 22nd January

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Everton

1-1: Saturday, 18th January

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Sheffield United

0-1: Friday, 10th January

(Replaced Masuaku) His set pieces were good and his ‘goal’ was expertly taken, but his introduction seemed to disrupt the way we were playing and it didn’t really work with the ball in play.

Gillingham

2-0: Sunday, 5th January

A busy boy although he failed to provide the cutting edge required.

Bournemouth

4-0: Wednesday, 1st January

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 28th December

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Thursday, 26th December

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Southampton

1-0: Saturday, 14th December

Worked hard and supported the attack well whilst being disciplined defensively to make the system work.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 7th December

Worked hard and put himself about, but lacks sharpness on the ball.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Wednesday, 4th December

His passing was poor all game, his set pieces well below his usual standard, then missed West Ham’s big chance with inexcusably poor control.

Chelsea

1-0: Saturday, 30th November

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd November

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Burnley

0-3: Saturday, 9th November

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 2nd November

He still isn’t a winger, but he’s a must in the team. Worked hard, but really it was the set pieces. And a glorious goal.

Sheffield United

1-1: Saturday, 26th October

Excellent first half. Marauded down the left and covered a lot of the pitch, both defensively and in attack. Helped the team look more solid in open play. Second half, not so involved and then poor as a winger.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 19th October

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Saturday, 5th October

Did not play.

Bournemouth

2-2: Saturday, 28th September

Did not play.

Oxford United

0-4: Wednesday, 25th September

The Scot was anonymous and produced nothing of note.

Manchester United

2-0: Sunday, 22nd September

(Replaced Yarmolenko) Came on, ran around, saw out the game in his six minutes. Job done.

Aston Villa

0-0: Monday, 16th September

Did not play.

Norwich City

2-0: Saturday, 31st August

(Replace Yarmolenko) Dallied a few times on the ball but was getting up and down the pitch to close off the game and help on the counter.

Newport County

2-0: Tuesday, 27th August

Not poor by any means, but slightly ineffective. Made poor decisions out wide and the right wing felt functional with him and Zabaleta.

Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 17th August

His first half confirmed thoughts that he isn’t a winger any longer, but he grew into the second half and his energy in midfield made things happen.

Manchester City

0-5: Saturday, 10th August

(Replaced Wilshere) For what he was brought on to do, he didn’t do it. No tackles or interceptions, his five rating basically boosted because he put in the cross that gave Diop a great headed chance.

Athletico Bilbao

2-2: Saturday, 3rd August

(Replaced Wilshere) A few forays down the left wing and a couple of decent corners, but little time to impress.

Hertha Berlin

5-3: Wednesday, 31st July

(Replaced Wilshere) The usual determination and grabbed an assist for Haller's first West Ham goal with a free kick.

Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 27th July

Match notes to follow.

Newcastle United

0-1: Saturday, 20th July

(Replaced Yarmolenko) Far from Pellegrini's most technically-accomplished player, but one of the squad's biggest grafters. You always get 100 per cent from the Scot.

Manchester City

1-4: Wednesday, 17th July

(Replaced Wilshere) Largely anonymous against the better City players.

Watford

4-1: Sunday, 12th May

Did not play.

Southampton

3-0: Saturday, 4th May

Did not play.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Saturday, 27th April

Did not play.

Leicester City

2-2: Saturday, 20th April

Individually, it’s hard to say he does great things at times. But his energy and the influence he has on the midfield is very valuable in this current squad. Faded in the second half.

Manchester United

1-2: Saturday, 13th April

Did not play.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 30th March

Feels hard to sum his game up. He ran a lot, but he lacks creativity and is too slow to threaten out wide.

Huddersfield Town

4-3: Saturday, 16th March

Did not play.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

No reason he should have finished that game, he was poor throughout. Didn’t really help Fredericks, lacked creativity, lost the ball.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

Other than his chip to Ryan Fredericks, he didn’t do a lot right today. Another midfielder that didn’t create enough chances for the Hammers.

Newcastle Utd

2-0: Saturday, 2nd March

Unmatched engine, working hard out wide and centrally. Good corner gets him another assist.

Manchester City

0-1: Wednesday, 27th February

Did not play.

Fulham

3-1: Friday, 22nd February

Worked his socks off, took 12 corners, two leading to goals, a few more chances and then should have been rewarded with an assist when Arnautovic missed his header.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

He should have done better with his chance on goal in the 15th minute. He was lacking energy in the second half and didn’t create anything to initiate a West Ham attack.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

Energy again needed, and one excellent chase back to halt a counter that looked deadly. Should have scored.

Liverpool

1-1: Monday, 4th February

His final ball when attacking lacked what it needed, but his presence in midfield was vital. Hassled and harried the Liverpool midfield, won freekicks to relieve pressure, a combative energy that has been missing recently. A return to form.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-3: Tuesday, 29th January

When he’s an auxiliary central midfielder, his workrate and tenacity is useful. But he is not an effective attacking wide player any longer. 4-4-2 doesn’t help him.

AFC Wimbledon

2-4: Saturday, 26th January

Gets an extra point for having to play near Masuaku. Better in the second half, industrious and passed forward.

Bournemouth

0-2: Saturday, 19th January

Arsenal

1-0: Saturday, 12th January

Birmingham City

2-0: Saturday, 5th January

(Replaced Nasri) Settled the midfield a little when he came on, added a defensive edge and more hard work.

Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Wednesday, 2nd January

Burnley

0-2: Sunday, 30th December

Southampton

2-1: Thursday, 27th December

Watford

0-2: Saturday, 22nd December

Fulham

2-0: Saturday, 15th December

Crystal Palace

3-2: Saturday, 8th December

The rejuvenation continues and what a richly deserved goal. A sign of his confidence; would he take that shot on even two months ago?

Cardiff City

3-1: Tuesday, 4th December

Newcastle United

3-0: Saturday, 1st December

Works harder than anyone, produced a beautiful cross for the first goal.

Huddersfield Town

1-1: Saturday, 10th November

Once again, another fully committed performance - although one with little incisiveness or devastating end product.

Burnley

4-2: Saturday, 3rd November

Worked hard as he is wat to do, although not a great deal of end product.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-3: Wednesday, 31st October

Leicester City

1-1: Saturday, 27th October

For all the (continued) effort, which is laudable, there was little end product today. That you can get by with in the Championship, but a little something special is what keeps you playing in the top flight.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Saturday, 20th October

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-1: Friday, 5th October

Manchester United

3-1: Saturday, 29th September

(Replaced Yarmolenko) A wonderfully refreshing attitude - currently reduced to cameo performances in the league but making the most of every second. Every successful squad needs a Snodgrass.

Macclesfield Town

8-0: Wednesday, 26th September

Chelsea

0-0: Sunday, 23rd September

(Replaced Anderson) The revitalised Scot was back to the bench today but still manged to provide the cross which should've led to a winning goal.

Everton

3-1: Sunday, 16th September

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-1: Saturday, 1st September

AFC Wimbledon

3-1: Tuesday, 28th August

(Replaced Rice) Well who'd have thought Snoddy would be back in team for the first game of the season? Replaced Rice and helped the Hammers look a little more solid in the centre of the park.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 25th August

West Ham's Player of the Year so far, which perhaps says more about the £100million spent than the Scot himself.

Bournemouth

1-2: Saturday, 18th August

A surprise inclusion and a surprise contender for West Ham's Man of the Natch. What he may lack in quality, Snodgrass makes up for in effort and determination.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 12th August

(Replaced Rice) Well who'd have thought Snoddy would be back in team for the first game of the season? Replaced Rice and helped the Hammers look a little more solid in the centre of the park.

Manchester City

0-3: Friday, 4th August

Decent run-out for the Scottish international, who continues to be linked with a move elsewhere during the transfer window.

Altona 93

3-3: Tuesday, 1st August

Decent run-out for the Scottish international, who continues to be linked with a move elsewhere during the transfer window.

Werder Bremen

2-2: Saturday, 29th July

Decent run-out for the Scottish international, who continues to be linked with a move elsewhere during the transfer window.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Can’t think of any significant contribution in this match.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Not only was he positive minded going forward, but he always tracked back and gave his all in defence. Not something you see every day from a winger.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 14th May

(Replaced Ayew) Came on when all was lost. Nonetheless managed to impress what was left of the West Ham supporters.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

(Replaced Ayew) Combined well with Fletcher at the end.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

(Replaced Ayew) Provided that extra ounce of energy that the Hammers needed to see the victory through.

Stoke City

0-0: Saturday, 29th April

(Replaced Calleri) Comments to follow.

Sunderland

2-2: Saturday, 15th April

Poor. Should have scored.

Swansea

1-0: Saturday, 8th April

One of those who tries too hard when, as at present, things aren’t going exactly to plan. Nice little pass around the corner for Kouyate’s goal might convince him of the merits of simplicity.

Arsenal

0-3: Wednesday, 5th April

Poor. Should have scored.

Hull City

1-2: Saturday, 1st April

Poor. Should have scored.

Leicester City

2-3: Saturday, 18th March

(Replaced Reid) Didn’t make much of an impression when on for Reid.

AFC Bournemouth

2-3: Saturday, 11th March

(Replaced Obiang) The scond debutant of the evening, Snodgrass gave glimpses of what he could potentially offer.

Chelsea

1-2: Monday, 6th March

(Replaced Obiang) The scond debutant of the evening, Snodgrass gave glimpses of what he could potentially offer.

Watford

1-1: Saturday, 25th February

(Replaced Obiang) The scond debutant of the evening, Snodgrass gave glimpses of what he could potentially offer.

West Bromwich Albion

2-2: Saturday, 11th February

Useful dead-ball delivery. Looks to be a useful addition to the side. Watch him get injured for that third world country he plays for.

Southampton

3-1: Saturday, 4th February

(Replaced Obiang) The scond debutant of the evening, Snodgrass gave glimpses of what he could potentially offer.

Manchester City

0-4: Wednesday, 1st February

(Replaced Obiang) The scond debutant of the evening, Snodgrass gave glimpses of what he could potentially offer.
