David Moyes was quick to react to a banner being held aloft from Hammers fans at Fulham calling for him to be sacked.
The manager is under continual pressure following results this season but saw his team win today despite having the lowest possession of any team in the Premier League during the current campaign.
The purists will of course claim it was an awful game and they aren’t wrong but at this point all that matters is points and given that it is Arsenal next it was vital we took something from the game today – the win was a huge bonus.
The section of fans however remained militant making their feelings clear on the manager’s inability to turn things around during the earlier part of the campaign by holding “Moyes Out” banners aloft.
Today, however, the Hammers climbed to 13th in the table with only their second Premier League win of the season, a 1-0 victory at Craven Cottage coming courtesy of Harrison Reed’s first-half own-goal.
Despite the score line, Moyes’s decision to withdraw striker Danny Ings on the hour-mark was met with chants of “You don’t know what you’re doing” from the away end, while at full-time a ‘Moyes Out’ banner was held up amid the celebrations of a crucial victory.
