West Ham fans take drastic action after defeat to Watford

Woop, woop, it's the sound of the police.

Spare a thought for West Ham fans.

You lose a much-loved, if not technically excellent, manager in Slaven Bilic for him to be replaced by *relegation-bound* David Moyes.

Hard luck.

Now is your time Davey.

The Moyesiah presided over his first match in charge against Watford on Sunday and there was not much to smile about for Hammers fans.

Andy Carroll was a walking elbow, Joe Hart showed once again why he should not even be close to the England squad with his chocolate wrists and there was a toxic atmosphere among the away supporters.

West Ham missed their fair share of clear cut chances and lost 2-0.

All in all a bad day at the office all round.

With some West Ham fans in a state of utter desperation they realised there was only one place left to go, the police.

Essex Police Force Control Room had to take to Twitter to plead with West Ham fans to stop calling 999 about the defeat.

Fair enough, things are not looking good at the London Stadium.

The team are in the relegation zone, the manager isn’t inspiring anyone with much confidence and the fans were chanting ‘sack the board’ at Vicarage Road yesterday.

But ringing 999 is a bad waste of police time and pretty ineffective when the only criminal – footballing-wise – is in the dugout.

If Moyes really is the messiah, now is the time to work his magic.
