Even a Moyes rollicking did no good!


Moyes1David Moyes refused to put his name to the first 45 minutes against Everton and admitted the Hammers neither performed of deserved anything from the game last night (Wed).

Speaking after the horror show he said: “The second half I could put my name to the performance, I didn’t want to put my name to the first half that’s for sure.

“We didn’t perform in the first half so we didn’t deserve anything from the game, that’s certain.”

“I got into them yes at half time, there were tactical changes, but we had to improve mentally. Individual mistakes cost us, each time,” he said.

“The three games we’ve been in, it’s not tactical or not that we are not running enough, it’s just individual mistakes and we have to eradicate them.

“The first half worried me, yeah, because we were submissive we never played, we never had a threat, in saying that we could have gone in 2-1 and it would give us a lift.

“But one thing I will say we came out second half and gave it a real go, we improved and we had a chance to get back into the game. I don’t think the scoreline reflected the game.”

Moyes is now on what looks like Mission Impossible against Manchester City on Sunday but said: “I have got to hope that this is where ‘you never know what happens in football’ comes in.

“We are not favourites for sure, but you are expecting we will go there (City) and get nothing, but you never know, it’s exactly right – you never know.”

Andy Carroll missed the trip to Goodison after twisting his knee is training and remains a doubt for the weekend.

  1. I’m just looking at the Betting for the Man City game on the Bet365 site – a goal difference of +4 is favourite at 6/4 – it could be a rout!

    • If we play like we did at Everton I think 10 is a possibility. He should select at least two keepers and 9 defenders hope to keep the score below 5 😉

  2. AaThere is very little to be positive about. but try this!

    Only a mad person would put money on us getting anything from those next few games. But ironically there could be some benefit from that. The only pressure on the players is to avoid total humiliation. The players could go out there & build some spirit. Because the best we can hope for is keeping out an avalanche of goals it may be a chance to rebuild the defence & just hope we nick a goal somewhere. I watched Huddersfield hold their own on Sunday against City. If we could just do that then confidence would start to return to a team that has ‘defeatism’ running through it at the moment.

    Butbif I am honest I don’t see how anybody can construct a decent defence from the players available & I have no confidence in the owners to bring in the players who could turn round what is likely to be a disastrous situation come the start of January.

    • They are going to have to spend more then £20m minimum of £40m & ffs we’ve needed defenders for so long.
      Now is when a proper director of football would.come help. Our squad should have never got this thin we sold players before we had replacements.
      And now we are short in CBs again bc of age & injury prone nothing new been going on for 2 years but we needed a GK not a CB & all attacking players.
      And we can even call Snodgrass back. I would imagine Burke should stay in Jan at least he is young & decent defender

  3. Are we Sunderland in disguise…
