David Moyes came in for heavy criticism on social media from West Ham supporters last night who were unhappy with his tactics against 19th place Stoke. Many felt his 5-4-1 formation was too cautious and too negative against such a poor side who faces relegation.
Hammers fans believe Hernandez should have started last night and many have been waiting for a Hernandez/Arnautovic partnership from the start. Others felt that Moyes left the substitutions far too late with Hernandez coming in the 76 minute, Lanzini on 81st minutes and Carroll on the 86 minute mark scoring 4 minutes later.
One Twitter user said “Moyes got it all wrong tonight. We went from a high press attacking set up against Southampton in which we was 3-0 up by half time, to sitting back and not committing men forward against 19th place Stoke”
Moyes is set to receive a contract extension if he guides West Ham to Premier League safety and that has led some Hammers fans to dread another season under Moyes.
