Moyes embarrassed with hapless Hammers

Fulham v West Ham United – Premier League – Craven Cottage – Reaction

Fulham 5-0 West Ham United

David Moyes was livid with his West Ham United side after they crashed to a 5-0 Premier League defeat at the hands of Fulham at Craven Cottage.

“I’m embarrassed for the result and the performance, and we’re sorry to the supporters for it,” the Scotsman fumed.”

“There were a wee bit of mitigating circumstances. I think the midweek took a huge amount out of us. Playing Thursday and Sunday in two Premier League games, compared to Wednesday and Sunday makes a big, big difference.

“We’ve had quite a bit of illness in the camp over the last few days and that’s not helped.”

Moyes added: “The supporters were great and stuck with the team.

“I think most of the supporters probably understood where we’d been in midweek, and we had two away games this week.

“Everyone had two away games or two homes in this period and not many have taken six points.

“Two away games, if you’d given me three points Id have probably said yes. If you’d given me two draws we’d have said that might have been good results away from home, so to get three points from the two games wasn’t that bad.

“But more importantly, it was a disappointment today in how we performed.”
