West Ham skipper Nolan apologises to fans for Arsenal thrashing
Nolan wrote on whufc.com: "It was totally unacceptable for us with the standards we have set ourselves and I want, on behalf of all the lads, to apologise to our fans and want them to know that we will be looking to put things right again.
"The gaffer wasn't happy and rightly so - so he asked for us to come in at 7am the next morning on the Thursday. I think he would have had us in later on Wednesday night if he could, but he told us to be in at this time the next day at the training ground and there were no complaints from any of us - we all need a kick up the backside every now and then and we take it all on board.
"The gaffer and all of us wanted to put this result and what happened to bed straight away and it was good that we came in early and got into looking at what went wrong together as a group."
