Fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which former West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon called for the club to back David Moyes in January.
In his post, Gabbidon, who made 113 appearances for West Ham over a six-year spell at the club, stated his belief that ‘Moyes needs to be able to bring in a few players’ who will allow him to play in a 3-4-3 formation even with injuries, as the former defender feels that is when the Hammers have ‘looked the most balanced/impressive’.
His comments come following Monday’s 3-0 loss to Chelsea, when Moyes set the team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, something which diverted from his favoured 5-4-1 (3-4-3) setup so far this season as they were without a couple of key players for that system like Arthur Masuaku.
And it would seem that many West Ham fans are in support of Gabbidon’s call for the board to back Moyes in the transfer market, as a great number of them took to Twitter to back up the 41-year-old’s call.
Do you agree with Gabbidon?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to Danny Gabbidon’s tweet?
Bang on gabs look much more solid in that formation should give Johnson a run at left wing back

Unfortunately he won’t get the backing he deserves. GSB business model is do enough to survive… we’re fine this season so they simply won’t give him anything for the January window.

Bang on. We’ve stopped opening teams up and have been grinding out results since the injuries. Mobile striker and a left wing back needed.

That’s exactly the problem. With the owners we have they aren’t spending the money to get the squad we need to do this #GSBOUT

That’s absolutely right. Cressie is not suited to getting forward much. Need a striker and cover for Masuaku

Totally agree Daniel
