Following our 1-0 win over Lincoln City last night, West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski issued a clear message to David Moyes.

Lukasz Fabianski has slid down the West Ham goalkeeping pecking order this season, and is now the club’s number two stopper behind Alphonse Areola.
Fabianski made news earlier this season when he expressed his disappointment at being demoted to the London Stadium’s number two goalie.

It was an uncharacteristic display of unprofessionalism from the 38-year-old, and Hammers manager David Moyes would have been furious.

Since then, the onus has been squarely on Fabianski to demonstrate to Moyes that he made the wrong choice.

And he didn’t hurt himself at all with his performance against Lincoln last night…

West Ham boss David Moyes gets a clear message from Lukasz Fabianski.
The Hammers goalkeeper was outstanding last night at the LNER Stadium, contributing significantly to our 1-0 victory.

As published by, Fab addressed to media after the game and stated unequivocally how well he thinks he performed against Lincoln:

“We knew going into this game that it would be difficult, physical, and direct, so we wanted to be ready and match their enthusiasm, which I think we accomplished pretty well. We obtained the outcome, albeit in a haphazard manner, but the important goal was to advance to the next round. It wasn’t easy, and the conditions were difficult to deal with, but I thought we delivered a very professional performance. The first half wasn’t too bad, but we were playing against the wind in the second half, and the ball can do a lot in the air. In the second half, all of my goal kicks ended up in my own box! I believe I really helped the team on a few occasions and I felt pretty good out there on the pitch, so I believe this was our first clean sheet in official games this season, which is gratifying, and I actually played a huge part in it. There is a lot of competition. I believe we have a good team, and everyone works hard to compete. We have a lot of games in the league and in the cups, and we want to win them all, so even the players who don’t play as much in the Premier League are playing virtually every week because of the volume of games we have.”

Lukasz Fabianski is definitely desperate to reclaim his place in West Ham’s Premier League starting lineup.

The trouble is, he’ll probably need Areola to make a glaring error or to go through a period of really bad form for that to happen.

That doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon, as the Frenchman has already made several fantastic saves this season.

The most encouraging takeaway from last night is that Fabianski appears to be more than capable of filling in for the 30-year-old this season.
