Bilic: “We are delighted”

bilicsmilesSlaven Bilic revealed his words of inspiration that turned the game against Spurs as the dejected Hammers sat in the dressing room at half time.

He said: ‘The mood was down a bit, of course, but not that down like against Brighton. The result was bad, 2-0 for them, but we played good football. OK we didn’t penetrate enough but we passed the ball well.

‘We said a few things about what we should do better when they have the ball and what we should do better when we have the ball and the guys executed that in the most brilliant way.

‘To score three goals against them, when they rarely concede, to be that brave, that compact, that good on the ball, of course we are delighted.

“It’s a great boost for us.’ He continued: ‘Goals are always key, they give you energy. When you concede it gives them energy, takes you a bit down.

  1. Now follow it up with the same intensity every match for the rest of thes season, no more false dawns !!!

  2. Its infuriating.The joys of being a West Ham fan in a nutshell.Much changed team from Friday and more of the same in the 1st half.Then its the full Jekyll and Hyde bit in the 2nd half with everybody giving 100% and removing the managers head from the block.As a fan for over 40 years ive been through it all,but win or lose all we ask is that the players lay it on the line and show fight and spirit.Now it has to continue cos we know this team, in fact the squad is far better than that awful shower last week.Now it has to continue.

  3. Totally miraculous!
    Special congrats to Lanzini, Ayew, Ogbonna, Fernandes, and Adrian!!
    Carroll, Cresswell, and Noble played their hearts out too!
    Total showing of guts and inspiration!
    Bilic’s position still very fragile?!

    • Don’t forget Rice outstanding as well. Adrian should be #1 Fernandes was on point.
      Would like to see same formation or 4-4-2 diamond with Lanzini at behind and move Kouyate out from back 3 to Mid and sub Zab or Reid

      • Would definitely be happy to see the same team with maybe Zab subbed in for Byram, Fernandes showed what a player he is, he has the creativity even if he is doesn’t always display the bite, if the tackling side of his game can be improved he will be one of our best players.

  4. Rice had a 97% pass accuracy in Spurs game. Every time he play he has the best or one of past passing rates. For me he deserves to start add is skill & ability to his passion. He wants it more than most.
