Outraged fans rip into Masuaku

Arthur Masuaku shamed the club and team but chiefly himself when red carded for spitting yesterday against  Wigan in yesterday’s FA Cup match.
Here’s how followers on the ClaretandHugh Facebook group responded to his outrageous behaviour!
O Quite rightly sent off . Not a fan of him at the best of times, so I’m amazed he found a way of going down in my estimations.
I’m reading that he’s in line for a six match ban for spitting. What he did was disgusting. You despair at how stupid these players can be!
O I think Masuaku has shown before that he is not one of the game’s great thinkers but this has shown him for what he is. With a fit squad I think he could become surplus to requirements.
O Disgraceful and loses us a man when we really cannot afford it. He’ll be banned and fined but that just gives him a break and hardly affects somebody earning so much.
O He should be sold in summer never wear the shirt again, when we get a fitter squad play Rice at left back and push Cresswell up as wing back.
O The Chelsea game was his peak. After that he’s gone downhill. His decision making is woeful. He regularly falls asleep and frequently gives the ball away. This disgraceful act is the last straw for me.

  1. There is no place in any sport for spitting and, as Moyes has said, he will deserve whatever he gets. The problem is that these self imposed suspensions (and the talk is he will get a long one) punish the team. We are in dire straits with injuries so this is the worst timing possible. Whilst what Masuaku did is disgusting, I’m not so sure that it is worse than deliberate elbows to the head (which could cause serious physical harm – a wrong blow to the temple…).
    Perhaps this ought to open the debate on spitting on the pitch generally, which players seem to do all the time. I can’t remember the last time I saw a match on tv without someone spitting. Slide tackles must be so much fun after that.
    Like Arnie v Soton, Masuaku has made a huge mistake. He needs to make a sincere apology, serve his time and then be given a second chance.

  2. He is a disgrace. If he has any self respect at all he should apologise to the player he spat at, apologise to Wigan, apologise to the travelling fans, his team mates, the club and veg the manager for forgiveness. We should then fine him double his wages for the length of any ban imposed then sell him without him ever getting near to wearing a West Ham shirt again. That should just about explain to anyone else the club will not tolerate that sort of behaviour.

  3. Sorry, beg the manager for forgiveness, not veg him… that’s probably against FA rules too…

  4. A fine of two weeks wages isn’t enough. He won’t be available for 6 weeks so should not be paid for 6 weeks.
    Carroll hasn’t been seen. Why isn’t he and other injured players made to turn up to support their teammates? They get away with too much.
