According to reports by Football.London, West Ham United manager David Moyes and striker Andy Carroll were involved in a training ground bust-up on Monday following their 4-1 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, and Irons fans know whose side they are on.
Football.London says that duo were involved in a heated exchange at the Rush Green training base on Monday, with the centre-forward unhappy that he wasn’t brought off of the substitutes’ bench against the Premier League champions.
Moyes, who was slated by the fans on Twitter for the starting XI he picked against Pep Guardiola’s men, made a triple change when City netted their fourth goal, but Carroll wasn’t one of the players picked to come on and the 29-year-old is said to have walked off straight down the tunnel following the Scot’s decision.
West Ham supporters have been quick to have their say on the altercation via social media, and it is clear to see whose side they are on.
While one said “team Carroll”, another said “I’m with Carroll on this one”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Carroll should've decked him back to Preston

I'm with Carroll on this one. He should have been on when it was 2-1

Definitely with Carroll on this one. That game was ready made for him to lead the line if we were not gonna play through and hold much of the ball. Their back line would not have dealt well with him.

Personally, Id rather keep Andy. That is saying a lot, cause normally I slate him for his lack of commitment, but anyone telling Moyes he's an idiot is a friend of mine!!
