David Moyes told a reporter that he thought his question was on the verge of insulting after questioning the owners commitment to bring players in.
The reporter asked:“The owners were confronted by fans at Wigan, in general how hard has it been for the club to sign players and are you doing everything you possibly can to bring players in?”
Moyes replied:“I think it’s nearly an insulting question to ask if they are doing everything they can. Of course they are. They want West Ham to be as good as they can be, they are giving us the right funds if the players are available. It’s difficult to get the right players and if there have been they have been expensive ones.”
Talksport host Jim White also came to the owners’ defence this morning “I’ve heard from a very reliable source that West Ham owners’ Sullivan and Gold were surrounded and jostled by fans at Wigan who demanded they make more signings. Gold is 81 and Sullivan 68!! Is that sort of behaviour acceptable? I don’t think so”
