Ex-West Ham defender Daniel Gabbidon has had his say on West Ham's season and the issues David Moyes faces.

Football may seem like the least important thing right now in Britain. 

A weekend without the top-four leagues playing made football fans across the country remember why we all fell in love with the beautiful game. 

Many went instead to their local National League and non-league clubs- at five of the six step five games which went ahead, attendances rose in comparison to those club's respective gates during their last home outings.

"The squad just didn't seem balanced enough for me in certain areas; the style of play, the tempo is too slow and they just find it very hard to score enough goals and defensively you know, didn't look correctly setup as well.

"So I think as a manager, first and foremost the onus kind of lies with you to get things right. Pellegrini wasn't able to do that, Moyes has now come in and you're a different type of manager working with previous manager's players. And it's very difficult when you know, you may be able to play players that you kind of don't want to or don't really suit your style of management.

"I think you look at the Arsenal game last weekend; I was at the game and they played ever so well. But [West Ham] still couldn't get anything from the game.

"So you know, as a player when you play that well and still come away with no points it really is kind of demoralising."
