I’ll not beat around the bush, Hugh has voiced his opinion in the article below and I have to say that it’s one that I share.
Moyes blaming Declan Rice and then suggesting that too many attackers cost West Ham dear today was poor judgement and quite reminiscent of a Sam Allardyce interview.
Declan is a possible future captain of West Ham so I was disappointed to see him hung out to dry when a public show of support would have been far better management. It’s also worth noting that Rice’s mistake was no greater than Joe Harts last week against Stoke yet that was handled very differently.
Double standards in the way that a manager addresses his players is no way to man manage. Like all of us Moyes would have been frustrated at the final whistle but he would have done better to have taken a deep breath or send Stuart Pearce out for the interview in my opinion.
