James Collins’ foul which led to his sending off has been dubbed a disgrace.
And ClaretandHugh’s Leroy Rosenior – making it clear the lack of discipline shown by the defender was extremely worrying – added: “West Ham must never lose their discipline like that – I found it the most worrying aspect of the afternoon.”
“Collins has to be annoyed and disappointed with himself. He has been around a long time and the lunge which saw him sent off was truly shameful. It was almost a case of assault. Terrible indiscipline
“Some people were saying he was showing passion but I’d say he was showing his stupidity. You can’t behave like that because you are getting a beating and that is all it was about.
“There had been no provocation. He just didn’t seem to be able to handle the fact that we were out of the game. Now he’s unavailable for the next one and if Winston Reid isn’t available that could create a big problem.”
Leroy added: “I hope it is made very clear to him that’e let everybody down but chiefly himself. We want none of that at West Ham.
“I was all the more shocked because he has been waiting patiently for a chance, played well when he got it and then acted like that. Really not good.”
