Alan Pardew said last week: "I have met fans in town and they tell me exactly what they think. But you come to expect that when the team isn't playing well."
There were protests and banners against former Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce and at one point he was odds-on for the sack.
On MOTD giving support to the side pushing for a Champions League place
Was there any sign of celebrity "fan" Russell Brand giving support to the manager?
I'm not sure, to be honest with you. Perhaps there was.
But get into a Champions League position and boy do the celeb want to ride the bandwagon!
Brand gate-crashed Big Sam's interview on Match Of The Day to give the gaffa a kiss and tell the world "he deserves more credit".
WE win together ... YOU lose alone.
It was a good day for the Hammers. Serial goalscorer Diafra Sakho shot down title holders Manchester City and .... errr ... Russell got his face on MOTD.
The reigning Barclays Premier League champions fell to a 2-1 defeat at Upton Park as Allardyce's West Ham moved to within a point of the visitors.
Morgan Amalfitano, who opened his Hammers account in the recent win over Liverpool, grabbed his second goal since his summer move as he swept home Enner Valencia's low cross in the first half.
Sakho then headed home his sixth goal in as many Premier League starts, with goal-line technology on hand to confirm his effort beat the despairing dive of Joe Hart.
Sakho got the winner.
