David Moyes feels that the criticism he received from West Ham fans was “unjust” and makes a dig at the club.

There’s no doubt that David Moyes is one of West Ham’s greatest ever managers; he achieved things many fans could only dream of. Those special nights in Europe will live long in the memory of the East London faithful and that trip to Prague will go down as one of the most sensational nights of their lives.

Unfortunately, things didn’t end well for Moyes. In fact, his relationship with the fans had been broken for well over a season before he left. What the Scotsman should look back at the best years of his career have been stained with bitterness due to this fragmented relationship.

“I think when things are unjust,” Moyes began explaining, “when you start to get older you start to get annoyed and say ‘that’s not fair, that’s not correct’.”

“There’s a couple of games where I thought [I was treated too harshly]. We won 1-0 at Fulham and there was a banner saying ‘Moyes out’ and I just thought ‘we just won’.”

“My history, because you know I’ve been in football, I can’t really remember West Ham doing a whole lot better in my whole thoughts and football. You know over the years I can think ‘they might be relegation material, might be close to the bottom of the league’.”

“There’s loads of mental health issues throughout life, and we have to respect all of them, but there seems to be a bit of a lack of respect, that it’s ok to say ‘ok phone in today and tell us why the manager of West Ham United should lose his job’. But yet we couldn’t do that in any other walk of life but it seems to be ok to do that to managers because they earn good money.”

You can totally understand Moyes’ point of view. In his eyes, he’s overseen the most successful period in the club’s history in decades. However his assessment of the club is extremely harsh.

Obviously a lot of the criticism of Moyes went too far with some basically abusing him on a daily basis and that’s totally unacceptable. At the same time, fans are more than entitled to call for him to get the sack because, at the end of the day, it’s their club and they should be able to have a say in what direction the team heads.
