Declan Rice has responded to the West Ham fans booing at the full-time whistle yesterday, after our defeat to Crystal Palace.

The Hammers put in a quite simply awful performance against Palace.

The players were nowhere near good enough but David Moyes doesn’t have anywhere to hide. He set his team up in the same defensive manner as he always does.

Moyes continues to start Jarrod Bowen, despite their terrible form. He is making the same mistakes time and time again, and it’s not good enough.

Aside from all that, Moyes’s in-game management leaves a lot to be desired as well. The fact that he took Said Benrahma off instead of Bowen yesterday was jaw-dropping at the time.

The players have to shoulder some of the blame as well. They really were poor. And the Hammers fans let them know about it on the full-time whistle…

The Hammers skipper was far from the worst player on the pitch for the Hammers yesterday, but he was nowhere near his best, that’s for sure.

The likes of Tomas Soucek, Aaron Cresswell and Jarrod Bowen really were appalling though.

And Rice responded when asked by BBC Sport reporters whether the West Ham fans inside the London Stadium were right to boo at the end of the game:

“They’re probably right to boo us in a way because we weren’t good enough.”

Well said Dec.

Those fans inside the stadium paid the money to go and watch the game, so they are more than entitled to boo after the match.

Moyes was actually booed during the game for his decision to bring Said Benrahma off the pitch with a third of the game still to go.

The West Ham fans booing after the game yesterday had an ominous feeling about it. David Moyes’s time at the London Stadium could be coming to an end, unless he makes drastic changes.
