“Let fans tell the players what they think of them”

West Ham fans are in misery as a season of despair goes from bad to worse and ClaretandHugh’s Facebook forum followers haven’t been slow in giving their views.

Here’s some random comments from them on the Everton misery and where we go from here.



– I still think appointing Moyes was a bad decision. We look identical to Sunderland of last season and look where they are at.

– It’s worth taking into account that this is the highest paid West Ham team in history but it is just so horribly imbalanced.

– Sell 50 per cent of the squad on January… buy 3 or 4 grafters and prepare for the Championship..

– Refund the travelling fans from the Everton match and let a few dozen fans speak to the squad on the training pitch and tell them what they think of them.

– Moyes said yesterday that he’d like to retire at West Ham. Any more performances like this and he’ll get his wish. Nobody would give him a job in football again!

– Our season looks like surviving or failing on the January transfer activity. Both in and out.

– Would we have been any worse if Noble was playing in fact we would have probably scored the penalty

– The next three games are crucial, even if it goes to form and we lose them all. We must not cave in when we go a goal down.

  1. Feeling sorry for ourselves won’t get us anywhere it will just make it easier for teams to beat us, it is pointless which is how it would leave us.

    As Moyes has said the whole team has to do more, I am confident in him, we are not like Sunderland and whether the result reflected it we tried hard in the second half against Everton and ran until the 93rd minute when the final whistle blew, the fans showed the players what to do in Everton when they were so vociferous even though we were 4 0 down, the spirit of the Nottingham Forest game when Gale was sent off. Hopefully that energy has passed itself onto the players, one step at a time give Moyes enough time to fix things, there has been so much wrong in the way we performed for two seasons under Slav it can’t be turned around overnight much as we may all wish it could the best way forward is for all of us to dig deep and support the team through this tough time, we have a bond with the players through that support and we can make a difference as we did against Leicester COYI !!!

    • Are you joking that you are confident in moyes,what have you seen that makes you confident.Moyes is a poor manager even Billic would have got us to beat Leicester at home with that surport.We are awful our transfers for the last 2 seasons are so bad we deserve to go down

    • I would call him a bad manager & agree 32 he wasn’t anyone’s 1st choice but the board should have made the change at summer.
      But we have been better In the 2nd half which is good but upsetting we should be playing from when the whistle is blown. The players shouldn’t have to wait till halftime for Moyes to yell at them.
      The players should care bc it won’t help their careers at all.
      I’m am hoping we put in a shift a City who are vulnerable at the back defend & counter

  2. You may be right that Moyes cannot sort this mess out Dan but imo you are not justified in calling him a bad manager. In spite of what followed it (which was not that bad) his record at Everton stands up. You can ‘fluke’ one season (step forward Mr B) but over 10 years?? Nah! Whether he is the right man at this time for us is a different question, but he at least deserves time & a lot of support in Jan. I agree the early signs are not good but at least give it a couple of months.
