I might be being naive here, but what's a homophobic gesture?
The dangly hand thing, mimicking a mincing walk - something along those lines, I'd guess.

Note, I'm not saying that gay people actually do those things - just that that's the stereotype.

I am certainly not a fan of the self-important fart that Johnny Nick is, but word ... 😏

Congratulations to West Ham for signing Jarrod Bowen for a fee that may rise to £22m. Obviously a lay out that big requires some savings elsewhere in the club, so they've sacked the guy who normally does the 'Welcome to West Ham' videos.

That's the only reason I can think of for this abomination, though I'm not sure what's worse. The imagery of 'the lights going out on West Ham'? The 'Blair Witch Project' reveal? The awful soundtrack? The gruesome lighting? Bowen patting the West Ham badge despite having begged to go to Newcastle over them? The hilariously wobbly camera work? Or the genuinely shite graphics at the end?

All were frankly laughable and/or disturbing, although not quite as laughable and/or disturbing as the 'Smell my ear wax' pointy gesture at 31 seconds. I've seen horror films that left me less unnerved.

Let's hope he turns out to be as shite as his welcome video. If he is, then West Ham are a dead team walking.

I‘m finding clubs are getting worse with these silly welcome to the club picture of new signings.

Arsenal are another completely cringe example of some of the poses of new players...

Whats wrong with just a classy pic of either the player holding up their new shirt (preferably with name and shirt number showing) or shaking hands with the manager?

Obvioudly my mentioning of the term ‘classy’ instantly answers my said question when relating to Arsenal and West Ham but still felt had to pen my thoughts on this lol.

Incredibly harsh on Allardyce - he brought them up and had them stabilised on far less money than managers have had since.

Sometimes think the media criticise him based on his appearance and cander, rather than his record.

Their final game of the season is against Villa. It could be a relegation decider the way things are going for both of them.

A loosely closed fist swung horizonatlly side to side, imitating a dice roll? It's all up for interpretation as to who is or isn't a homophobe.
What? I thought the youngsters at work were just giving me a playful wave as i stroll into the office. Little fucktards!!!!

Does anything sum up West Ham better than their goalkeeper situation?
Release Adrian as he's not good enough.
Sign Roberto and David Martin as back-up keepers.
Realise neither are good enough to play in the Premier League and re-sign Darren Randolph, a player they'd previously sold as he wasn't good enough.
In the mean time Adrian, who isn't good enough to be West Ham's 2nd choice, goes on to win a Premier League title*, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
