Diasppointed playmaker’s view

AdrianWest Ham playmaker Mauro Zarate was far from happy with a point, claiming that’s not good enough at the Boleyn.

The draw against Stoke kept the team in eighth place but after a hard working performance which saw him hit the post the Argentine wasn’t happy.

He said: “I think it is a bad result for us we need to win at home. We have to do better if we want to win. They created some chances in the  second half and Adrian was really good but i think 0-0 was a normal result.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes said: “We had chances to win it – on reflection it was a game we could have won but we had to defend as well.

  1. I know that west ham have a few points less than this time last season?? But with four of our best players down and the chances that have been created but not converted?? Shows the strength and better football they are playing ,i wasn’t at the Stoke match but followed it on the minute by minute text , I thought the match could have finished easily around 10*3 ??,I still think will finish the season with 60 points.PS I glad that the style of play is ten times better than hippo,s crap, that Sunderland’s supporters are now finding out with him.

  2. Yes and people do have to realise that it was about now that the form dip last year started to gain momentum, we held on by our fingertips a few more weeks back then but then fell off a cliff Post Christmas. We are producing far more chances even with a depleted team 9 last week 20 this and 3 posts hit so that hints that a decent finisher could transform results. Sadly that may not happen this season unless Antonio can repeat his goal scoring talent from lower divisions to help.
