West Ham United fans were furious with David Moyes last night.

Moyes to make two huge changes to West Ham side for Brighton?

Many West Ham fans felt Moyes’s tactics in the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea were too negative.

The scoreline was harsh on West Ham. But the game was there for the taking and the Hammers failed to capitalise.

Reserved West Ham let Chelsea off the hook

West Ham showed last season they have the beating of Chelsea. West Ham did the double over the Blues by going for it when the chances arose.

But West Ham fans were in agreement on social media last night that Moyes’s negative tactics had been shown up by Arsenal.

The Gunners went for Chelsea and dominated in a 3-1 victory – their first win for seven games.

West Ham played a very passive possession-based tactic at Stamford Bridge.

All that served to do was let Chelsea off the hook and give them time to grow into the game.

Arsenal show how it is done by getting at Blues

Frank Lampard’s Blues looked a shambles as Arsenal did the opposite to West Ham and went flying at Chelsea at every opportunity.

Being direct and getting at questionable full-back Reece James paid dividends.

Watching events unfold, many West Ham fans were not happy with Moyes.

The Scot had surprisingly included ageing skipper Mark Noble in the side for that game, his first start since West Ham’s dismal opening day defeat to Newcastle.

It backfired as the toothless Hammers were – in the end – comfortably beaten.

Some West Ham fans were furious with Moyes after watching Gunners blast away Chelsea

West Ham fans will be expecting a more attacking approach against struggling Brighton today.

The Seagulls have only won once in their last 13 games in all competitions.

Hammers supporters made their feelings clear on Twitter about Moyes’s tactics.

Many also pointed out that West Ham could not beat 10-man Crystal Palace who have since conceded 10 goals without reply in just two games.

Here are a selection of comments from West Ham fans on Twitter about Moyes’s tactics.

‘A managerial disaster’

Is Haller being mistreated by Moyes or does he simply have to toughen up?
