Moyes delivers his verdict


David Moyes delivered his verdict on the Hammers win soon after the match at the post-match presser and declared himself happy with the result.

Many of us were hoping for more goals in a match which before and during the 90 minutes looked there for the taking.

Not Moyes. He sees no easy games in the Premier League and he believes anybody, whoever they are and support, will see the result as a top one for the Hammers.

He admitted that some people would have been expecting more but that as a manager he has found any game easy.

And he made a very good point in claiming that a look at today’s result demonstrates there are no guarantees describing the League as strange and saying that we did a really good job to get a good victory.

He declared himself pleased with the way we had started the game and said we could have been four or five up at half time.

He added: We missed a couple of chances and we had a couple of corners of which we looked we looked very close to getting on the end of.

There were things we liked in the first half with the chances we made, but in the second half we looked as if we just ran out of energy.

Maybe the midweek League Cup game took its toll, not just generally on all the players, but particularly on some of them.

I get told by the press men that we haven’t had a clean sheet yet, so it was a positive that we got one today and got the three points.

If we’d won 1-0 I’d have been thrilled, so let’s not get carried away like everyone else is trying to do and saying we should be winning these games as lot more easily.”
