Defender refuses to blame injury for Swansea shocker

Sam Byram in admitting “we are right down in it” refuses to blame injuries for Saturday’s awful performance at Swansea.

Speaking to the official site the right back said: We’re very disappointed. It was a six-point game and now we’re right down in it. We need to pick ourselves up and go again because we’re in need of points.

“Saturday was a chance to get some and we didn’t do that. If you look at all the goals, we’ll hold our hands up and say how disappointed we are with them. We need to go back to defending how we did when the manager came in.

‘We were without Angelo and Ginge, and Winston got injured during the game and they are very experienced players and have played the majority of games for us, so to lose them was frustrating.

“But I don’t think we can make excuses about how we played and how we conceded the goals – the squad is very capable of people playing when others can’t and it’s down to us now to turn it around.”

  1. I just watched the second half of Brighton v. Arse. What a difference in attitude between our players and Brighton… They too lost a defender to injury. So what. True they were already in command at the score, but listen, that was a proper display. We don’t have a worse team on paper. The attitude on the pitch however is what is making us sink.

    I don’t know what the problem is, because the same tics we saw under Bilic have come up again with Moyes. So it is a players issue. Caused by what exactly, I don’t know, but the midfield was awful, Lanzini was nowhere, The defence was passive, and several players are division 2 players, and either are not up to this, or don’t care. This is very very sad…

  2. And now I will watch Barca-Atletico. Just to see what football is when played with passion and grinta.

  3. Agreed.A lot of these players need to take a good long look at themselves and ask where the passion and desire was yesterday.If we were not so threadbare squad wise half of this lot would be dropped for the Burnley game.They owe the fans big time on Saturday in what is definately the biggest game of our season and only 3 points will do.Need to get over the line this season and then its a huge rebuilding job.
