Former Hammer Danny Gabbidon criticised Slaven Bilic tactics in taking off Pedro Obiang yesterday.
Speaking on his twitter Gabbidon said “Slaven Bilic got that wrong for me at 1-0 and looking like scoring he brings Obiang off & plays Lanzini CM with Nobes”
Later saying “Everton showed more every energy 2nd half nullified Payet too” & “Leave five up field all season and see how many clean sheets you keep….”
When questioned by a West Ham fan on what Gabbidon would have done:
The licensed coach said: “Kept him (Obiang) on… it was 1-0 not 4-0 coulda taken Antonio off he weren’t great…” or “Take Lanzini off then”
Gabbidon made 113 appearances for the Hammers between 2005 and 2011. He was signed from Cardiff City for £175,000 in 2005 but was released in 2011 to join QPR on a free transfer before later join Crystal Palace before returning to Cardiff City when he hung up his boots last year.
