"There hasn't been any problem with the manager," Ephraim told the Ealing Gazette. "He's passionate and a winner and when you play badly two games in a row, you can understand he is going to be upset and that you are going to get a rollicking.
"He could have been silent but told the players it was unacceptable and I would rather have a manager do that than one that feels the need to walk on eggshells. You should respect that if you've got anything about you as a player.
"Obviously, I don't know exactly what happened at Watford last week. I don't know all the rights and wrongs. But I feel it shouldn't be made into a big issue. We have a lot of passionate characters at the club, but I think that's a good thing."
Ephraim, who is currently on loan at Leeds as he builds up his fitness following ankle surgery, added: "It's not helping us, starting again every five or six months with a new manager. What we all want is a bit of stability and I'm expecting and hoping I won't be coming back in time for another change of boss."
