Flores was involved in an incident which led to the dismissal of West Ham striker Andy Carroll during Swansea's 2-0 defeat at Boleyn Ground last Saturday.

Carroll failed in his appeal against the red card on Tuesday and Flores, who had a disagreement with Hammers boss Sam Allardyce in a previous clash between the teams, has hit back at people targeting him through the internet.

"I'm a bit tired of the strong insults from the West Ham fans. Whoever doesn't see the aggression in that action is blind," Flores said.

"They should be more preoccupied with the ugly way their team play football: always making very long passes and never quick short passing.

"They should be worried about that before caring about such evident things."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
