Moyes takes swipe at supporters

David Moyes hasn’t helped himself by taking an indirect pop at supporters by suggesting a true supporter would stand up when things are tough and not walk out on their own team.

West Ham supporters deserted the London Stadium in thousands early after the fourth Newcastle goal went in and Moyes admitted he might have walked out himself

Speaking to reporters post match Moyes said  “I might have walked out tonight as well, but sometimes when things aren’t going so well you need everyone behind you. That’s when you stand up and be a true supporter. But I have no qualms with them leaving with a result like that.”

The comment is reminiscent of former manager Sam Allardyce cupping his ear back in 2015 after supporters who jeered his West Ham side off after a dull home win over Hull City.

That was a water shed moment of which there was no return from supporters with the manager not offered a new contract in May 2015 when his contract expired

  1. This reminds me very much of the relationship Moyes had with the Sunderland fans when he was in charge up there , he seems to regard any fans of a team he manages as an annoyance and treats them with an aloof disdain
