Moyes faces ” go for it” plea


Frankie Mac – Take the hand brake off !

Ex -Hammer Frank McAvennie has pleaded with David Moyes and the West Ham squad to take the “hand brake” off ahead of their Europa Conference League final with Fiorentina tonight or they will get beat.

Macca admits to being a pal of David Moyes and the fellow Scot is keen not to be too demanding of the 60 year old but he believes the team really does need to go on the offensive against the Italian outfit tonight.

Looking back at the Leicester City away game – the last of the last season – he explains that he believes they were so defensive  and says that if they play the same way tonight they will be beaten.

If they do that against Fiorentina they’ll get beat. Simple as that. You’ve got to go at them,” he told the West Ham Zone website.

“England did it. They went defensive against Italy when they should have brought Grealish on and gone for it. Simple. If West Ham do that against an Italian team [they’ll lose]. They’re better at it than us. They have better defenders than English teams, so we’ve got to be better than them and go for it. I can’t see them not.

“Don’t walk off that pitch after 90 minutes thinking, ‘if only I’d done that’. You cannot think that way, you’ve got to do it. You can’t think I should’ve done that, or we should’ve done that.

“You’re a better team than Fiorentina. Individually, they’re better. If they work together they’ll beat them. No question. They’ve not got better players than West Ham.

Well said Frankie!  I am sure that David Moyes and the players know this , as it would be a crying shame if we did not play to our full potential on one of the most important nights in years.
