Easy to see all that is wrong with West Ham today

It was so easy to see all that is wrong with West Ham today notably in Moyes again deciding to play a counter attacking game against a bottom of the table team in our own stadium.

It’s the wrong way to approach most games but to continue down such a road today was entirely horrific writes Hughie Southon.

Many have argued it was the correct wat against Freiburg. Maybe!

But I would sincerely hope the same fans  don’t believe it was the right attitude against a very poor Burnley side whom we managed to make look like Brazil at times.

It is why so many of us have had more than enough of David Moyes and want him gone as soon as possible although sadly, I still am not at all sure it will happen.

Yet here is a manager whose priority signings this last few months have been JWP and Kalvin Phillips, both of whom were replaced at half time such was their lack of input.

Then there was another Mavropanos own goal and a poor performance from Aguerd on yet another comeback.

Beyond all that was the team’s inability to pass the ball and perform may of the basics properly. How we hold onto seventh place is a total mystery and from where I’m sitting enough is more than enough.

However, well done Danny Ings but why has be been missing since a fine game at Sheffield United?

  1. I have said this before. In a serious club this Manager would have been kicked out a long time ago. But our club owners are clearly out of their depth and can’t even delegate the job to someone who knows what he is doing. God help us if we don’t play a lot better against Freiburg.

    Teams should be scared to come to our stadium. Instead, they see us as a good place to pick up some points, no matter how poorly they are doing elsewhere. Only a fan boycott of the games will get the owners to react. They don’t want to lose money.

  2. The most disappointing thing about the first half performance was how predictable Moyes decisions and set up were. Burnley have won three games to date but you knew (there are no easy games) David Moyes would afford them far to respect and play his only system… 15% procession. As ever, Moyes was problem. We will never move forward until he is gone.

  3. Fully agree Hugh. Only this West Ham team with this manager can make Burnley look like Man City.

    And I’m fed up to the back teeth hearing from Moyes and the players, after games, saying we’re not playing to our normal standard. Doesn’t anyone realise that this IS now our normal standard?

    As you say, backing off against one of the worst teams with one of the worst defences the Premier League has ever seen, is truly shameful.

  4. I wonder who will be the next player that Moyes decides to put on the left wing? It would have been so much easier if he bought a left winger before he let Benrahma go. Benny may have his faults but at least he IS a left winger. But no, Moyes brought in another central midfielder which we did not need and who seems more of a liability right now.
