Moyes: I was ashamed

Image for Moyes: I was ashamed

David Moyes has expressed his shame ahead of West Ham’s game against Liverpool at The London Stadium. The Hammers manager came clean when he was reflecting on the Premier League thrashing at the hands of Crystal Palace last week.

It was the first time Moyes has spoken since the embarrassment at Selhurst Park, and I don’t blame him. It’s probably done himself and the West Ham squad a lot of good to keep out of the limelight, given the circus surrounding the club this week.

Sheepish Moyes admitted his embarrassment ahead of Liverpool fixture

However, the Irons gaffer has admitted that he was ashamed of the capitulation which saw West Ham’s porous defence concede five goals to the rampant Eagles.

“Palace played well and we didn’t. What we want is a reaction from the players, for them to show what it means to play for West Ham,” Moyes said.

“Our start was incredibly good against Bayer Leverkusen, so [poor starts are] not a regular thing, but I will say I was ashamed after 30 minutes at Palace.

“I hope I can make sure that doesn’t happen in the future. We need to defend better.”

Perhaps Moyes has some selective thinking over West Ham’s poor starts, which are more frequent than he’d have us believe. But he’ll not be able to afford a sleepy beginning to tomorrow’s encounter when Klopp’s Liverpool come to town… let’s not forget they too have put five past us this season.
