Bitterly disappointed Moyes delivers verdict

isappointed David Moyes was delighted with the way the Hammers performed at Liverpool but declared: “I would sooner say we were rubbish and have points.”

And speaking to Sky Sports he added: ” We did a decent job for long periods and we are disappointed not to have one point if not three.”

It was massively disappointing to see keeper Lukas Fabianski commit two errors which led to goals and Moyes was probably as gentle on the keeper as he could given the stopper’s heroics in previous games.

He said: “He has done so well for us but when you make a mistake it’s important to get over it and not to do it again.

“I think there’s a lot more to come from us. We can get better than this but we have to improve on passing and other areas of the game.

“WE did well tonight but overall it wasn’t good enough. We played a different way to the way we performed against Manchester City – we tried to win but it’s very hard here. These were bonus games for us and we g on from here.”

ClaretandHugh says: Moyes’ bitter disappointment was all too easy to understand after an outstanding Hammers performance, perhaps – even in  defeat – their best of the season so far. However, there was one flaw in his assessment . For reasons which remain unclear he chose to take off Anderson who was making a decent return for Hallers and it was from there that the wheels fell off from 2-1 up to beaten 3-2. Ok it was his first match back but the reality of the substitution soon became apparent and that really was a major disappointment. Had he brought on Bowen at that stage in a more like for like switch it may have been a more acceptable change.

  1. That’s more like it, Proud of the lads tonight. Just a shame Fabianski had a wobbler.
    Also a big shout out to our supporters tonight – Best in the world.
    COYI roll on Saturday

  2. Sorry guys, still can’t see who we are going to beat in the remaining matches. Ok we scored twice against the best team in the league but as was the case against city, it was only because of the opposition’s wastefulness infront of goal that we didn’t concede double figure scores. Anderson to me is the prime example of what is going wrong. He may have all the skill in the world, putting in the odd eye-catching run but between times just strolls around trying to avoid any physical contact.

  3. Shut up wa—ker⚒⚒

  4. Sorry, but I thought Anderson was poor tonight. Too many wayward passes in the 1st half and looked disinterested. It certainly wasn’t his substitution that had any affect on the outcome. I think bringing Antonio back into his best position and playing Haller up top was the right move and didn’t seem to dampen our attacking prowess.

  5. The real question is whether Soucek is injured. With him we can hold anybody. Contrary to what is above, Anderson had one of his best two way games in memory.
    Haller is an oxygen thief.
