Missed chances – which chances were they?

CollinsYou are awake an hour and read of referee’s assistant guessing at a disallowed West Ham goal accompanied by claims that nobody can score.

This won’t take long but let’s clear all that up!

As stated earlier the linesman guessed correctly – Enner Valencia’s goal was rightly ruled out. It was a yard offside so no moans about that please.

As for our players not being able to score, one small point – you have to make chances for that to happen and West Ham aren’t doing so.

Thus the goal drought goes on and will continue until a team is put out that can find it’s way through defences as 19 year old Jack Grealish did ours yesterday before pulling the ball back to Tom Cleverley for their goal.

I’m too tired of the usual excuse making to say much more other than like most others match day is now a trial from beginning to end.

But it really does need to be pointed out that those chances we hear of, yesterday amounted to an offside goal and a James Collins header from a Mark Noble corner.

Case rested!

  1. We were very poor but when you start a game without a centre forward and ten men hoping to get a 0-0 draw and the other team takes one of there 12 chances and you only have 2 attacks in 30 mins it’s really no shock that you can’t score goals,
    But the man who likes to be called big Sam not BFS shame has not got the cojones to put his hand up,
    So now I will never call him BFS or big Sam again,from now on I will refer to him as
    No Cojones Sam NCS

  2. I would have more respect if someone after the match said “we played really bad, we deserved to lose the match”.
    I’m talking about the players, I’m not even thinking about the coward.

  3. If Allardyce picks Nolan ahead of Nene on Sat against Everton he really is just taking the p*ss,both out of the club & fans by not putting our best available team on the pitch.Lets get rid of this dinosaurs management from our club,in fact the Premier League would be a better place without it!

  4. He wants Little Kev to score that 100 goal on his watch and at our ground,
    Sorry Chicken its odds on but that should be the last nail and when Burke marks Lu Lu out of the game he should be ready for next year mind you NCS will probably rest him under some new excuse like he is plating to well we need to bring him down to earth,
    NCS give Nene a chance before we have to let him go

  5. The bottom line is the ability to match up on the hard work by the other team.We have Nolegs in the middle and so effectively you lose the midfield before a ball is kicked.if you lose the middle you will lose the game.simple premiss from all team games at whatever age and whatever level.it doesn’t take a genius to know that even though we supposedly have one.Sham is a poor manager and until he puts the basics in place he will remain one and we will keep losing.
