Big man Fab says sorry

It takes a big man to say sorry and they come no bigger than Lukasz Fabianksi

The West Ham keeper was devasted that his blunders cost the Hammers the game against Liverpool.

He told the press “My mistake basically cost the team the three points, we did really well, we actually pushed Liverpool to the edge and I think if it was not for my mistake then we could have even won. I am really sorry that I let the team down. I held my hands up [in the dressing room] and I am really sorry for my efforts. I am the reason why we lost.”

“I think the first goal and the second goal I should have done a lot better, because I was set, I was ready to react and my hands were there. For some reason I just misjudged it or maybe I was a bit relaxed in those situations, thinking that it was already caught or saved. It was me being a bit too relaxed, not being aggressive with making saves.

“I will do my best [to make up for it], work hard, make sure I cut out all the mistakes and try to be an important part of the season. We are still in a bad position and I will just make sure I am more focused and more reliable to help the team in the next games.”

Claret and Hugh say:

It’s shows the character of the great man that he feels he needs to publicly apologise to his teammates and the supporters, I not sure every professional footballer would be so quick to do so. If you make a mistake as a midfielder or a forward it often results in a misplaced pass or missed goal scoring oppotunity. If a goalkeeper makes a mistake it invariably results in conceding a goal. As Mark Noble said Fabianski has earned the team enough points earlier this season to forgive for dropping points on his occasion. We are sure he will be determined to make up for it in the remaining eleven games to help guide West Ham to Premier League survival.

  1. Fab is definitely not the problem. Salah 8 yards out unmarked on his left foot will score 8/10 in that situation, we were lucky that it was the one in 10 where he scuffs it, unfortunately fab didnt save it. Same for Wijnaldum. How many times has he single handedly saved us. Least goals to expected in the whole of Europe last season. Didnt make an error for a whole season.

    The problem is clearly the right hip. I dont think hes fit. He made some great saves and catches on the night but they were always to his left. Every shot to his right he struggled with. His kicking looked very strained as well. A big decision needs to be made for Saturday as I dont think hes fit enough to dive right properly.

  2. Fab doesn’t need to say sorry. He has saved us lots of points.
    It takes a big man to say sorry openly but he will step up against the saints.

  3. Not sure he has achieved “great man” status at west ham yet. That would put him level with Ludo or Parkesy. Good, yes, but clearly not great.

  4. I agree with all of you he has been great and has saved us on a number of occasions..the only problem is someone seems to be saying sorry most weeks ..Be it noble rice ,haller or whoever..not being funny but the mistakes need to stop ..we need points and in a minute it will be to late

  5. It’s fine, Someone else will make an individual mistake and cost us massively next match whilst you have a blinder!

  6. No need for him to apologise but very brave, he also made many great saves, his defenders should apologise for exposing him so often. We aren’t fast enough at closing down players which leads to crosses coming in way too often.
