Honest Ward-Prowse spells it out

James Ward Prowse- West Ham-Corners-Set Pieces

Truthful Ward Prowse wants more goals from West Ham

James Ward-Prowse made it clear talking to the official site at www.whufc.com that he was frustrated and disappointed that we didn’t build on a 2-0 half time lead against Sheffield United.

Whilst Villa were putting six past Brighton and Hoove Albion and Arsenal finding the net four times against Bournemouth our two goal win looked a bit weak by comparison.

Various Irons have come out saying asall tat matters are the points but we can make our own minds up on that one.

ClaretandHugh  follower Mr Buddy Lurve is not one of those who accepts that view and makes his point here.

James Ward-Prowse. “The points are all that mattered” commenta are no more than media trained rubbish.

Ward-Prowse honesty

It DOES matter how you perform against inferior teams – good goal scoring performances build more confidence, as well as a better goal difference.

Remember the 2-1 win v Hull City in the Allardyce days? You can’t tell me that the points were all that mattered – it was horrific and the fans let the team know.

Honest Ward-Prowse wants more goals

I’m glad we’re seeing some genuine honesty from players who want to strive for more and not happy with ‘okay’. Good for him.


Media trained players sell games short

In days long gone by, football reporters were actually allowed to speak with players after games. We could ask for particular players who generally were very forthcoming in their responses to questions the fans would wanted answered. I remember Mooro, Phil Parkes  and Alvin Martin in particular being very decent with their quotes at the Boleyn. Unfortunately, the clubs became aware that questions they would prefer not to be asked were usually on the agenda and as a result stopped a years old system and instead started doing the job themselves. The result? Precisely what is described above. The players have been media trained to give the answers the club believes acceptable for their purposes rather than the fans hearing the truth. No need to wonder why club sites are as bland as they have been for a few years now. Media training of players is the answer, It really is a case of speak less say more lads!
