West Ham fan says 'they give me hope I can be a footballer' after Newcastle defeat

West Ham fan says 'they give me hope I can be a footballer' after Newcastle defeat

George Barnard spoke to West Ham TV after the full-time whistle – and fans were loving his reaction.

A passionate West Ham supporter has gone viral after he delivered one of the most memorable fan reactions of the season after their 5-1 defeat to Newcastle.

George Barnard spoke to YouTube channel West Ham Fan TV in the aftermath of Wednesday night's Premier League clash at the London Stadium.

And after goals from Callum Wilson [2], Joelinton [2] and Alexander Isak sealed a humiliating defeat for the struggling Hammers, who sit just above the relegation zone on goal difference, Barnard ripped into the team.

"That was singled-handled one of the worst games I've ever seen in my life," he said. "I've seen some s*** in my life... that's up there 100%."

Barnard didn't stop there. "That first goal, what is [Thilo] Kehrer doing," he continued. "I can't even walk yeah, but watching him play football gives me hope that I can be a footballer myself.

"He's f***ing horrendous. It's awful, every game. He [David Moyes] should've been gone in August. Can he go? Yeah. Will he? Probably not."

In his post-match interview, the under pressure Moyes admitted he did not blame any fans for walking out early, although did suggest they needed to "stand up and be true supporters".

Speaking to Sky Sports, the West Ham manager said: "I might have walked out as well tonight.

"I know how it works but sometimes when it's not so good, that's when you stand up and be a true supporter as well.

"We had some great results here last year in the league and Europe, but sometimes when things aren't going so well you need everybody behind you.

"I thought the crowd at the start of the game tonight was fantastic, so I've got no qualms with them leaving with a result like that tonight."

Moyes, who is now the bookies favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked, added in his post-match press conference: "As manager, I have to [take responsibility] and front up to questions.

"You have watched the game and are able to write what you see. I'm a big boy and have left other jobs in the past. If this one happens, I would have to go with that.

"I really like my job here. I like the people I work for and have enjoyed my time greatly. I'm hoping there are a couple of big days ahead in the not too distant future."

He continued: "If you're a manager and you lose badly like I did tonight then you're always in jeopardy. I understand that."
