It’s been a strange week for West Ham United fans. They were greeted with the shocking revelation from Slaven Bilic that star man Dimitri Payet wanted out of the club and was refusing to play for the club again. And as expected the news was not at all received well by Hammers fans.
However, the weekend saw them garner a much-needed win over fellow bottom of the table strugglers Crystal Palace. It was a welcome respite in many ways, as the Irons looked primed for a relegation battle. Amazingly, it wasn’t the only thing to bring some joy to Hammers fans over the weekend.
Alvaro Arbeloa hasn’t featured all that much this season and this weekend was no different. In a move that is sure to earn him plenty of goodwill with the fans, the Spanish right back decided to watch the game not from the stadium, but in a local bar that was packed with West Ham fans.
