Moyes admits defence record is rubbish

West Ham manager David Moyes admits West Ham’s defence record is absolute rubbish.

Asked about the Hammers no clean sheets in 14 games the manager told reporters post-match on a Zoom conference call ‘That’s rubbish isn’t it?’

Adding “If we were starting from scratch, that would be it. We have got some very good defenders who have taken responsibility and shown how much they care. Today, you see how much Burnley cared.”

The Gaffer was also disappointed how his team conceded the Burnley goal today saying “I Wasn’t happy with the way we conceded the goal. We didn’t defend the back post as well as we should have,”

The last clean sheet was on New Years Day where David Moyes took over from Manuel Pellegrini with a 4-0 home win over Bournemouth.

West Ham has kept six clean sheets all season which is the fourth-worst in the Premier League behind Norwich, Bournemouth and Aston Villa.

  1. He’s right for once. But he as a defender in his day should know what to do.
    Cresswell has been responsible for many goals latley,not getting near his man. Terrible attempt at a clearance.
    He needs to be replace. Our fullbacks are very poor for the PL. Both need replacing for the next game.We need fresh legs as our players looked beat after 60 mins.
    Johnson has to come in for Fredricks who is just not intelligent enough for a modern fullback. I would also bring in Masuaku for Cresswell as he surely can’t do any worse,though I’m risking it a bit.
    Moyes really,really has to look at his lack of substitutions . how he can not see this as a problem is just unfathomable. He’s a cretin and lacks any plan b. However thinks he’s a good fit for us doesn’t know football.
    I’m bored of saying the same things time and time again. 1 win from 5 games and 1 decent performance is relagation form. We are lucky there are 3 worst teams than us. We will stay up despite Moyes at the helm not because of him. Twice now he has come and achieved little.He’s just not good enough.Nothing inspirational about him.
