West Ham boss David Moyes was the victim of some highly unfortunate TV positioning before their FA Cup third-round clash with Stockport County.
Moyes’ Hammers went away to the non-league outfit on Monday night, struggling to break them down before scoring late in a fairly drab 1-0 win at Edgeley Park.
The Premier League club were unable to get going on a bobbly and watery surface in Greater Manchester, with the tie looking like heading to extra-time before Craig Dawson headed home the winner seven minutes from time.
One of the biggest talking points of the night actually came before the game, when fans were quick to point out how Moyes was “done over royally” by his unfortunate positioning for an interview with the BBC.
While speaking with Mark Chapman ahead of West Ham’s showdown with Stockport, the Scot was placed in front of a stand which has the word “COUNTY” showing in big letters.
Unfortunately for Moyes his head was blocking the letter O, and the positioning of the TV camera meant the letter Y was not in the shot.
Amused fans quickly took to Twitter to point out how the remaining letters spelled out the word “c***”, with some joking that Moyes must have enemies at Stockport.
One user said: “Moyes has been done over here Royal[ly] by the county flag”.
“Wonder what Stockport have against Davie Moyes,” wrote another.
A third commented: “Rather unfortunate positioning at Stockport for David Moyes!!”
While one simply put: “Stockport really hate Moyes”.
Dawson spared Moyes any further blushes at Stockport, heading home his first West Ham goal late on to send them into the fourth round.
