West Ham fans in agreement with Bowen after Southampton draw

West Ham fans are in complete agreement with Jarrod Bowen.

The 24-year-old attacker spoke very well after his side’s 0-0 draw with Southampton despite it looking like a missed opportunity.

Bowen was clear when he spoke about the game (club website).

“It’s one of those afternoons where we had a lot of the ball, but ultimately in the final third – where we’ve been really good recently – we were a bit off today.”

“It’s another point in hopefully another successful season.”

Despite not being able to win the game, they didn’t lose it either.

The fans are much more understanding of this too, especially having seen just how strong their team can be.

It also must be stressed that West Ham’s schedule is a packed one this season.

David Moyes’ side face a Europa League campaign alongside the three domestic competitions.

With those extra fixtures and the congestion that comes with it, the fans are being more reasonable when their side suffer an off day.

It must be said that the defensive shift put in by West Ham was a solid one.

Declan Rice cleared one off the line in the draw and the Irons were also let off the hook when Armando Broja hit the post.

At the other end, it was Bowen who came the closest to scoring when his left-footed volley was tipped over the bar.

The ex-Hull man is still chasing his first goal of the season, although he likely won’t have to wait too long.

In his first full season for the Hammers last year Bowen bagged eight goals and five assists (Transfermarkt).

The 24-year-old will, now be looking to top that and get himself double figures for goals, something the fans would absolutely love to see.

The supporters clearly have a lot of time for Bowen and you can see what they’ve had to say in response to his comments here:
