Manager breaks silence on Moyes Out banner

David Moyes was asked about his thoughts on the ‘Moyes Out’ banner on display at Craven Cottage on Saturday; the manager admitted he could do nothing to stop criticism from West Ham fans as he faced negativity during a vital victory at Fulham.

While the Hammers supporters saw just a second away win of the season, there was still much ill-feeling towards Moyes with chants of “You don’t know what you’re doing” aimed in his direction as he substituted Danny Ings on the hour and there was also a ‘Moyes out’ banner on display.

Asked what he thought of the criticism, Moyes replied: “I can’t really answer that, can I?

“They can do that if they choose to do so…” When it was put to him the negativity could put pressure on his players, he added: “It can do, yes”

“But I have to say the players’ response and the way they have gone about it after the midweek result and pulled together to get a result which they did do, magnificently led by Declan (Rice) and the players. I have to say it was a really good strong performance.

“It is not just the second away win of the season but a second win in a week. Two clean sheets in a week. Two 1-0 victories in a week.

“In our position I knew we had to win some away games and we dogged it out today and found a way of getting a result, nicked a bit of a goal and getting a chance. Fulham played well at times but we defended really well. We made it difficult for them.”
