He’s a modern day West ham legend and I don’t care what anyone else says.

He’s not the best in the world a bit like his driving but getting back to his football he will always give you 100% wish more players gave the same passion as Antonio ?????

Could Michail Antonio be classed as a key player for the Hammers?
No, not good enough
Yes, he's underrated
Antonio arrived in London in September 2015, when the forward signed for an undisclosed fee from Championship outfit Nottingham Forest (per Sky Sports).
Since then, the attacker has featured in 145 appearances for the Irons, during which he has netted 30 goals and 21 assists (per Transfermarkt), however, some fans were less impressed following the club’s tweet.
That is horrendous

What do we think?
While some supporters were a little uncomplimentary following the club post on Antonio, it is clear to see that the majority highly rate the English forward.
with 51 direct goal involvements in 151 appearances for the Hammers (per Transfermarkt), it is clear to see why most fans hold the forward in positive regard.
