Moyes defends “same team” accusations

David Moyes has a few words for those who have criticised a situation where effectively  the same team is  being played as last season.

Much has been made of that in some areas but the manager believes that the club and of course himself as boss is facing a huge challenge this season.

He told reporters: ” We are in quite a big transition. You might be looking at the team and saying it is the same team as last year, but we are in a period where we are trying to introduce one or two news ones.

We are bringing in new players and you can probably see, if you are being honest, maybe some of the players who have been here are maybe not quite the same as they were even a year ago, a year and a half ago.

  1. That’s ok if moyes has said that ,no problem, he just needs to be straight up with the supporters sooner rather than later and he will be backed to the hilt we all see it .

    • I am pleased David Moyes is coming forward more with his view on how he see things. If there is no comment then as we have often seen the sofa surfer managers come up with some bizarre and occasionally abusive comments. There is no need to give away trade secrets but communication is important even if its telling us there is no news!

  2. I thought that it was an obvious process that he shouldn’t have to defend against, but it makes sense to me.
    There is a big difference between Evolution and Revolution.
    Revolution is a very drastic process which is normally associated with wholesale changes and all of the complications that it brings.
    Evolution is a slower process, which is what every manager would be seeking to implement unless they have been parachuted in to firefight.

    • Spot on Cat, it is indeed an Evolution and this takes time.
      You can see our play is not smooth atm, hopefully this gets better.
      It’s great to see Benrhama shine and kick on and he feels like a new signing.

      • Thanks, West Aussie Hammer 1. I also agree 100% about Benrahma as our style of play is now beginning to suit him.
        In fairness to Moyes, he built our success by using a style to suit the players and the budget that we had. Listening to him and reading between the lines, he has stated this on many occasions.
        Onwards and Upwards COYI

  3. We were all dumbfounded that Moyes took off Benny, Fornals and Antonio. Zouma was useless, Cresswell too but the worst of all was Soucek. He looks knackered and no idea. He’s fed up playing defensive so get Flynn Downes on, and let Rice play more forward. Moyes will come under fire after this. His scape coat is Benny AND Fornals 😡😡😡😡😡
