West Ham fans slam MOTD’s analysis vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth 3 – West Ham 3

Boxing Day at the Vitality Stadium was memorable.

In a ding-dong affair that had a bit of everything, James Collins opened for West Ham in the first half before Dan Gosling made it 1-1 at the break.

Nathan Ake fired Bournemouth into the lead in the 57th minute, but then David Moyes watched his Hammers stage a fightback.

Marko Arnautovic was the hero for the Irons as he bagged a quick-fire double to swing the match in West Ham’s favour.

But in injury time Bournemouth found a 3-3 leveller through Callum Wilson.

Referee Bobby Madley was slaughter on social media by West Ham fans after the Bournemouth game.

In particular, the decision to allow Wilson’s injury time equaliser to stand had Hammers fans fuming.

And West Ham fans couldn’t believe it when the MOTD pundits reacted to a clash between Simon Francis and Cheikhou Kouyate in the match.

Francis, the Bournemouth defender, took out West Ham’s Cheikhou Kouyate with a horrific kick to the face.

Francis was booked by the official. That means he’ll not face any retrospective action.

But a yellow card for this?! Surely a red card was more appropriate for such reckless tackling?!

Not according to the MOTD pundits.

They backed up the ref’s decision to allow Francis to stay on the pitch.

In a season in which we’ve seen Sadio Mane sent off against Man City for a similar high boot challenge, how did the MOTD talking heads reach their decision?

West Ham fans have taken to social media to blast the MOTD team.
