Andrew Ayew has turned over a very new leaf on the pitch with three goals in two games – one a magical strike from distance at Palace which warmed our hearts.
Off it however, he, no doubt to be followed by various others players over the next couple of days, are reading from the same old script, and it really does get on your nerves.
After Palace’s nonsensesical 97th minute goal, which really shouldn’t happen in an under 17 game, the £20 million signing reckoned we should “learn from our mistakes.” Oh PLEASE!
Commenting on the official website he mentioned the usual cliche about it feeling like a defeat adding: “We’re disappointed. It was a tough game, and it’s always difficult to hold to the end when you come out after half-time and concede a goal inside the first five minutes.”
Well Andre, maybe we shouldn’t have been trying to hold on but instead giving it a right go – best form of defence being attack and all that!
Then came the big one: “We need to forget about the disappointment and correct what we did badly in the second half when we play Liverpool next week.
“We didn’t hold the ball as well as we did in the first half and that put our defenders under pressure the whole time. We’ll learn from that.
“The response to Brighton has been not bad, because of the victory we had at Wembley, but to be honest we should have left Crystal Palace with three points and had two wins in a row.”
Great so 10 games in we are still making mistakes which ensure we lose points and have to learn from them.
Sorry, that doesn’t wash with me or I suspect many others”
Unprofessional and brainless are a couple of words that occur to me – naive, stupid, pathetic, unacceptable, unforgiveable – I could go on in this vein all day. It just drives you nuts!
I’ve been a fan for many years and I have always said if I was a opposing manager I would instruct my players to put in extra energy just before half time and directly after and also near the end of a game because this is where the hammers are more vulnerable.
😂😂 you’ve got to laugh when they keep making the same comments , its exactly what politicians say in the house , we must learn from our mistakes !! Its the must say gullable excuse to swerve the real problem that it should have been dealt with years before after concerns from others that were ignored ,and did not address it !!
West ham could write a encyclopedia in 50 different languages and solve the problems of every football team on the planet ! Same as same as !! Just makes you want to grab them by the throat and tell em some home truths lol 😕
They will learn from these mistakes. But they will go on making them until there is somebody in charge who shows them that this line is NOT acceptable as an excuse. You are an experienced professional footballer. You know how to play the game. A good manager would have explained all these things to them, and would then make sure the players realise there are consequences if they continue to mess up.
I have had way more than enough of players making these remarks. We don’t need them, we know what the team needs to do: we just wish that they would get on & do what they know needs to be done. So, no more of these senseless remarks – just let your football do the talking !
