Ex hero takes a pop at Hammers

At a time when you would have hoped for Tony Cottee to put himself back onside with the club the former Hammers striker has decided instead to take a pop at the team.

Anybody can knock – easiest job in the world – but as one of our former striker heroes – one would have hoped for more than criticism from TC after such a brave performance at Liverpool.

We all know we missed chances but let’s not forget Liverpool did too notably when Aaron Cresswell made  magnificent clearance off the line.

Ahead of the game Cottee – who been a front man led PAI Capital’s bid to take over the club – had called for the squad to dig in given Declan Rice’s absence in a Tweet.

They certainly did that and created some great chances with a depleted squad but that wasn’t enough for TC who then tweeted: Tony Cottee@TonyCottee9We have been so wasteful…. Some of these chance needed to be taken COYI ⚒6:58 pm · 5 Mar 2022·

Not wrong of course but one might have hoped for more after the bravery the lads displayed.

  1. I don’t find anything wrong with what he has said Hugh.
    Just telling the truth.

  2. David Moyes said that we were not clinical enough, pretty much the same thing

  3. This headline should read ” Hugh takes a pop at Ex hero”. You seem to be having a go at his tweet because he didn’t say we played well! Odd?

    • Nothing odd about it at all. It’s unbalanced and unfair given we had done exactly what he asked in his previous tweet to get stuck in without Declan which is probably why he’s employed nowhere these days. Plus your suggested headline would not be true based on that or anything else written

      • It’s a one sentence tweet not a match report. It’s incomplete rather than unbalanced and unfair.

        • Soundbite world – message is clear as was his first one. It could have read :” They dug in well as we wanted but should not have missed all their chances” Hardly a match report
