West Ham United have been dumped out of the FA Cup after losing to League One side Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
The 2-0 defeat is a major blow to David Moyes’ early reign at the club, especially given the fact he named a strong starting eleven to take care of the lower league outfit.
In a match that not only saw the Hammers soundly beaten but also an embarrassing red card incident involving Arthur Masuaku, supporters were left absolutely livid by the display.
Aside from the dismissed midfielder, particular criticism was aimed at striker Javier Hernandez, whose ineffective attacking display did little to hurt a resolute Wigan defence.
The Mexican, who signed for a reported £16m last summer, has failed to win over supporters after a series of inconsistent performances this season.
He’s only scored five goals in 23 appearances thus far and fans are now calling on him to be given an early exit, believing he isn’t a great fit for the Irons going forward.
They took to Twitter to discuss his situation…
Maybe people can see now why we want to sell Hernandez

I find it funny when people defend the board saying we have the 7th highest wage bill in the league!!! For me that shows bad ownership and Mis management of our clubs finance Hernandez prime example on way to much £ #WHUFC #BoardOut

Sell Burke and give Ginge a 2 year deal. Sell Oxford to fund deals for Dendoncker and Cairney. Sell Chicharito and loan in Sturridge. Ask City very nicely if they’ll take Hart back.

Hart and Hernandez could have their contracts terminated tomorrow and no one would notice. Offer nothing to the side except adding to the wage bill

Moyes is right. If anyone else had played how Hernandez has we'd be saying we should get rid. Systems/circumstances have not created the ideal situation for him however his attitude has been terrible. He clearly has a poor relationship with Moyes & has sulked most of the time. https://t.co/olK9w1N6rd
