Collins “indiscipline” dubbed a disgrace

SendingoffJames 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.”

  1. Leroy spot on again – twice in one day!!

    What’s going on in Collins head – not much by the way he hacked the Watford player down on Saturday – it was unbelievable – just when he’s coming under pressure for his position in the Squad and he had a couple of good games – it really beggars belief!

  2. Collins is a liability. Always has been.
    Bilic fell for the sympathy notion of playing a winning team.
    Ogbonna was a better option and should of played.
    He’s been sent of twice now for similar offences
    Burke has been superb at Bradford, bring him back at the end of the month.

  3. I thought the sending off was a disgrace, it wasn’t a good tackle but it was a one footed hack, should have been a yellow card, the one on Payet last week was much worse and add to that Capoue should have been sent off three times for his random assaults on various West Ham Players on his way upfield then wading into anyone and everyone around the incident…
