Yesterday, as the Hammers slumped to a third consecutive heavy defeat, a loss accompanied by unsavoury crowd scenes, David Moyes looked to be ageing by the minute.
The days events had clearly rattled the Scot who probably thought he`d witnessed everything this game has to offer.
After the defeat Moyes faced up to the media and had this to say about the performance and the disgraceful scenes that accompanied it, remarking to the Match of the Day crew,
‘Up until the goal you wouldn’t have thought that it would have been such a bad day. We had played well enough to be in front but the first goal quickly altered things.
‘We want the supporters behind us, since I’ve been here they’ve been really good. But you can’t cross the line and come on the pitch.
‘A lot of my players did well with the way they acted.
‘We still have plenty of games, we are good enough and we will be out of the bottom three come the end of the season. I’m confident we have the players here.’
Yes, West Ham will retain their Premier League status, there are three teams worse than us in the Premier League, but you get the feeling the club is approaching a crossroads where the correct decisions have to be made relating to our future.
