Adrian nails the Boleyn problem!

AdrianIt really is very simple – we have to start a lot faster!

Adrian’s command of English may not be as great as some but he knows how to nail it and reckons right now the Hammers are giving teams too much time to allow their confidence to grow at the Boleyn.

In a nutshell it is us that may be causing our own problems at home rather than anything the opposition are able to conjure up.

Speaking to the official site he said: “Away we are playing very well but sometimes here at home we need to start much better

“We allow the other team to have more confidence and they can score.¬†For us, at the moment we are playing better away from home but you have your fans here and of course if you play well, the fans are with you.

“We need a result or to score first to have our fans with us.”

  1. Fans should stay behind the team whether winning or losing.Unfortunately we have a breed of supporter these days who seem to be waiting in anticipation for the chance to let their first boos ring out.Useless fans if you can actually call them ‘fans’!!

  2. Not sure Adrien has nailed anything,the mistakes that led to the fans finding fault were not straight from the start,people are going to react to school boy errors,the fans then got straight behind the team right to the end,
    The fans that boo are in our midst because they want the new to fail so they can say told you so,we have been saying on here for a long time to they are not real fans,
    But these players should be professional enough to rise above that,
    Let’s not keep looking for silly reasons and just admit when we make mistakes and learn from them

  3. You can only react to what you see, if the Team are playing poorly you will feel negative – on Saturday against Norwich we surrendered possession for the most of the first half, played far too deep, not pressurising the ball.

    Why? I haven’t a clue, there’s been talk of tiredness following the Capital One Cup game on Tuesday, I’ve no idea why we played such a strong team against Leicester – the Capital One Cup is hardly a priority. Apparently, Norwich made big changes for their Capital One Cup game with only two players playing in both two games – a far more sensible approach. It could be some sort of excuse but whatever, West Ham were overrun in the First Half against Norwich – we gave them the freedom of the pitch and allowed them to play their passing game at will – getting the draw was extremely lucky and against the run of play. I don’t know the stats but Norwich must have had far more of the ball.

    If you sit back and invite the other team onto you, don’t pressurise the ball etc etc eventually even a team like Norwich, who haven’t got much of an attack, will score.
